Even if you don’t smoke or drink coffee, stained teeth are nearly inevitable as we age. Some of the healthiest and tastiest foods leave unsightly color deposits on tooth enamel. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but teeth have microscopic pores that absorb color from berries, curry, wine, tea, carrots, and even green leafy vegetables.
At our Parsippany, NJ dental office, we would never suggest you leave tasty foods out of your diet, but we also know that you don’t have to live with stained teeth.
Superior Teeth Whitening Choices
Everyone is different, which is why we offer several options when it comes to getting rid of yellow or brown stained teeth. A consultation with one of our skilled cosmetic dentists will help you decide what type of teeth whitening is right for you.
KöR Whitening at the Office and at Home
KöR Whitening is a patient favorite here at Gruber Dental. KöR combines the super-fast in-office results that people love with a take-home kit to continue whitening at home. Because KöR is refrigerated from the time it’s manufactured to the time you put it in your whitening trays, you get the best results possible.
You will also experience less sensitivity with KöR because desensitizers are built right into the whitening gel solution. You can keep your custom trays to touch up your smile any time you notice it’s not as white as you’d like it to be.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Phillips Zoom! Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular on the market for take-home teeth whitening systems. Made of either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, we offer Zoom! in a variety of strengths depending on the level of staining on the teeth and any issues with sensitivity. Simply use the gel in your custom whitening trays for 30 minutes to an hour each day for a couple of weeks to reach maximum whiteness.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Many of our patients swear by Opalescence whitening gel. It comes in five levels of strength and contains fluoride for a cavity-prevention treatment while you brighten. Fluoride, along with sodium nitrate, can help to reduce sensitivity.
One of the most significant benefits of Opalescence is that you can wear your trays for as little as 15 minutes per day.
Are Your Teeth Sensitive While You Whiten?
If you have gum recession or wear, you might feel a little zing when you whiten your teeth. You can leave a day or two between treatments or talk to one of our cosmetic dentists about desensitizers. Just because you have sensitive teeth doesn’t mean you can’t have that gleaming white smile you’ve been dreaming of.
