Teeth whitening is one of those simple and straightforward methods many of us use to improve our smiles. At Montclair Smile Design we like to think of this effective tool as a go-to for those who need a quick teeth brightening before their holiday party, family photos, or before a big day like a wedding or graduation. There are many styles of whitening that have been introduced into the market and into our mouths but which ones do you like? Which ones do you trust? Do they all work with the same effectiveness? There are many questions that our patients have when it comes to teeth whitening. Luckily, we have loads of answers!
What methods/products do you prefer?
If you have the time and commitment to doing at-home methods (trust us, we know how life gets sometimes!), awesome! We recommend having custom trays made at our office and using NiteWhite or DayWhite. This is a gel that you put into the custom trays, wear for 30-90 minutes per day for approximately 7-10 days. Patients find this overnight option extremely handy.
I don’t have the time to do teeth whitening every day at home. What’s another option?
As most people are aware, Zoom! Teeth Whitening is an in-office option that has taken the world by storm. Zoom! gets you to your lightest* shade in about 2 hours. You will hear us talk about this option quite frequently around the office, to our patients and in our blog posts because it is so fantastic! Curious about it? Don’t hesitate to ask any of us your questions. We have done hundreds of applications over the years and have also tried it ourselves!
Are there any over the counter kinds that I can use?
There are several options in your grocery store setting that have worked for many folks. Our preference for high quality, effective and evenly lightened teeth remains using custom trays or Zoom! Are you looking for a daily way to up-keep your bright smile? We recommend Fluoridex Whitening and have it available in our office.
As the holiday season is upon us, the spirit of giving resonates throughout our days. Don’t forget that teeth whitening is a great gift to give! At Montclair Smile Design, we can provide you with custom-made teeth whitening gift certificates! Want to brighten your own smile for the holidays? Give us a call and schedule an appointment today to get started.
