Teeth Whitening in Toms River, NJ
According to a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 99,7% adults believe that a bright, healthy smile is an important social asset. That is why tooth whitening has now become one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Garden State Dental in Toms River gives you a great opportunity to enhance your smile thanks to our experienced dental professionals, in a safe and comfortable environment.
Bright smile is the key to your confidence!
The color of the teeth usually changes with increasing age, but there are certain factors, foods and drinks that can speed up the process of discoloration:
- Various drinks: soda, red wine, coffee, tea, etc.
- Carrots, oranges
- Developmental disorders
- Root canal issues and tooth decay
Getting professional help with your discolored teeth is always more preferable than various over-the-counter treatments you can now buy in a pharmacy. Our dentists have a professional training and years of experience to be able to address the cause of your teeth discoloration and recommend the best solution. They will examine your teeth thoroughly and consider your overall oral health, the sensitivity of your teeth and the condition of your gums.
The longer you postpone a teeth whitening procedure, the harder it will be to restore the original color. So don’t hesitate and make an appointment with our office in Toms River to get professional advice, best-quality care and a bright, lasting smile!
In-Office Teeth Whitening brightens smiles in Toms River.
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 of Toms River 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 of Toms River dentists—and with far fewer trips to our offices.
Get a noticeably brighter smile at home.
Your Garden State Dental of Toms River 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 of Toms River 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.
Zoom® Whitening Products from our Toms River Dentists.
Philips Zoom® professional whitening treatments have quickly become the number one requested brand choice for dental patients throughout the U.S. There are many good reasons why.
For starters, Philips Zoom® gives patients a variety of whitening options that fit their lifestyles and best achieve their whitening objectives. At Garden State Dental, you’ll get professional-strength Zoom® whitening products from a qualified dentist who knows how to use them.
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 of Toms River 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 of Toms River 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 of Toms River 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 of Toms River dentist to recommend the best option for you.
