Teeth Whitening in Northern New Jersey
Do you wish that you could have a brighter, whiter smile? Have you been using countless over the counter products only to see mediocre, short-lived results? Perhaps you should consider professional teeth whitening services from Garden State Dental.
How is Professional Teeth Whitening Different?
Professional teeth whitening, or dental bleaching, is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at Garden State Dental. As you age, or based on the foods you consume, your teeth can yellow over time. Without taking action to brighten your smile you risk looking older than you feel.
Our professional treatments are ten times as powerful as any products you’ll buy over the counter and can offer immediate results – just in time for a big event. Don’t spend weeks wrestling with whitening strips only to be disappointed.
Will Professional Whitening Work for Me?
Professional whitening works for almost all dental patients. However, it is advisable to consult your dentist before undergoing any whitening treatment. Your dentist will evaluate if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening and notify you of any concerns.
It must be noted that teeth darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange respond well to teeth whitening. Grayish color caused by fluorosis, smoking or tetracycline can be lightened but with less-than-satisfactory results.
Additionally those patients wearing dentures, partials or other dental devices may not benefit from professional whitening. Discuss this with your dentist before undergoing a whitening treatment.
What is the Process for Getting My Teeth Whitened?
Professional teeth whitening can be done in-office in less than an hour visit with a dentist. This offers immediate results for upcoming events and is convenient with no at home care required. Your gums will be protected from damage and then your teeth will be covered with a powerful whitening gel. A special light will then be applied to your teeth to activate the gel and give you a brighter, whiter, smile instantly.
You can also whiten your teeth with the use of a take-home kit that your dentist will prescribe you. This product will resemble many of the gels and trays that you can find in the drug store, but are much more powerful than over the counter products. For added benefit use both products together and achieve your whitest smile ever.
Teeth bleaching products that contain peroxides can actually change your tooth’s natural color from five to seven and up to twelve shades brighter. Even a stubborn single tooth can be individually brightened with professional treatment.
Why Consider Teeth Whitening in New Jersey?
The dentists of Garden State Dental in Northern New Jersey offer safe teeth whitening procedures. True assessment of your teeth can be done through x-ray. Not everyone is a candidate for tooth whitening and our team of dentists will find out what is best for your dental care besides just tooth whitening.
Veneers, crowns, bridges, fillings maybe the most appropriate treatment to help your overall oral health. Moreover, crowns, bridges and fillings do not bleach, so it is necessary to replace them to blend in with the color of the whitened teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening brightens smiles in Northern New Jersey.
It’s hard to light up a room with your smile if your teeth have become faded and yellow. If you’ve got a wedding, class reunion or big business presentation coming up, you might not have the time to wait for a take-home whitening kit to work its magic. Happily, Garden State Dental offers incredibly convenient, remarkably effective alternatives: in-office chairside whitening treatments that remove years of discoloration and restore your smile to its former glory in as little as 60 minutes.
We offer non-invasive procedures that are simple, safe and painless. We start by applying a whitening gel to your teeth. Oxygen is then released from the gel through exposure to a specially designed light, stripping away unsightly stains. The result is a dramatically younger-looking smile that’s up to eight to ten shades lighter.
Convenient Take-Home Whitening Kits
There’s nothing like a whiter smile to brighten your day. Whiter teeth are not only more pleasing to the eye, they can also boost self-confidence and make you appear more professional. Your Garden State Dental dentist will help you choose an effective and affordable solution that delivers the greatest impact with the least amount of time spent in the dentist’s chair.
Take-home whitening kits are ideal for patients who wish to achieve professional results in the comfort of their own homes, but under the guidance of a licensed dental expert.
The benefits of take-home whitening.
At Garden State Dental, we’ve found that many patients can’t afford to spend time at our dental offices for professional in-office whitening treatments. Take-home whitening products offer a convenient, but effective alternative. Used as directed, these take home kits help patients achieve dramatic results under the professional guidance of our Garden State Dental dentists—and with far fewer trips to our offices.
Get a noticeably brighter smile at home.
Your Garden State Dental dentist knows your oral health and thoroughly understands the whitening process. She or he will also be aware of any possible sensitivities that may occur. Under our expert guidance, you can achieve the results you desire in far less time than with most over-the-counter whitening products, such as toothpastes or strips. Your dentist will closely monitor your progress to ensure you get the greatest results in the fastest and safest way possible.
There are two types of stains that whitening products address. Surface stains, called extrinsic stains, appear only on the outer layer of your teeth. Deeper stains, known as intrinsic stains, are buried deep within the dentin underneath your tooth’s surface. These deeper stains live within your teeth’s tiny cracks, making them more difficult to reach. Your Garden State Dental dentist will recommend the whitening product that best addresses the specific type of stain affecting your teeth.
How take-home teeth whitening kits work.
You can trust your Garden State Dental dentist to recommend the best whitening product for you needs, whether it’s an in-office treatment, over-the-counter one, or take-home whitening kit. To be effective, all whitening products must contain some form of active ingredient. In most cases, this means hydrogen peroxide. When oxygen causes the whitening agent to react with the discolored molecules that cause staining, the stain molecules break apart, leaving behind whiter, brighter teeth.
Over-the-counter whitening vs. take-home whitening.
Although there are many products available at a retail level, the whitening experts at Garden State Dental know your teeth. They will take into consideration your current stain level, any known sensitivities that might occur, as well as the whitening level you hope to achieve. You’ll get improved whitening results in less time with guidance from a professional dentist who understands your needs.
Feel good about your smile again.
When you’re confident about your smile, people notice. The teeth whitening experts at Garden State Dental understand how to help you regain your whiter smile and the greater self-confidence that follows. Ask us to recommend the most suitable whitening method for you and your teeth.

Make your smile an asset.
When you feel good about your smile, it shows. You’re more confident and ready to face the world. People will be drawn to you, and you’ll get noticed as a result. Whether your teeth are stained due to genetics, from habits like smoking or drinking caffeinated beverages, or from medications you take regularly, Zoom® products can give you a brighter smile by targeting both the surface stains on your teeth and the dentin that lies beneath.
Types of whitening options.
There are many different types of Zoom® whitening products, from toothpastes to rinses, to strips and professional whitening treatments. Many are available only at your dentist’s office. Garden State Dental offers both Philips Zoom® in-office and take-home whitening products. Our dentists will advise you regarding which will be the best solution for your particular needs.
How the products work.
Some products remove stains by working on the surface of the teeth using abrasion. Most whitening toothpastes use silica molecules to polish the tooth’s enamel. Whitening products with peroxide actually create a chemical reaction to break down the stains that produce a yellowing effect.
Can whitening be harmful to the teeth?
As long as you or your dentist uses the product as directed, you should not have a problem. When misused, however, some products can cause gum sensitivities, particularly if they are used too frequently. Your Garden State Dental dentist will examine your teeth and gums to assess their condition before recommending a whitening product. Let him or her know if you have had any past issues with sensitivities. With the right care and formulation, you should get noticeably whiter teeth without irritation or other problems.
How long do whitening treatments last?
Most whitening treatments will last a reasonably long time as long as your teeth are properly maintained. It really depends on your personal habits and lifestyle. It’s best to refrain from coffee, tea, wine and cigarettes to keep your smile bright. There are also a number of Philips products your dentist may recommend designed to prolong your whiter smile.
Discover which whitening solution is best for your needs.
Like most whitening products, Zoom® products are designed for use by a professional. Your Garden State Dental dentist will recommend the right Zoom® product for your needs after a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. He or she will also discuss your goals and your budget for whitening. Costs start at just under $100 for a basic Zoom® treatment, but vary based on the level of whitening results you hope to achieve.
What to expect from Zoom® whitening products.
Results will vary based on your natural tooth color and your teeth’s current condition and shade. In most cases, a difference of even two to three shades will result in a noticeably brighter smile. Zoom® offers a wide range of whitening solutions. You can count on your Garden State Dental dentist to recommend the best option for you.
