A person’s smile is one of their most attractive features. Smiles are indeed contagious, but they also affect how others perceive us. We’ve noticed here at A&A Dental in Holmdel, NJ, that teeth whitening is growing in popularity. More people realize they can have brighter smiles and are going for it.

Can It Be Done at Home?

Yes, there are ways to whiten your teeth at home. You can use whitening toothpaste or even rinses. Whitening toothpaste can be used a couple of times a month, or you can rinse your mouth with a whitening rinse for a short time.

Whitening trays are another popular choice. These are trays that are made to fit onto your teeth. The trays contain a gel that’ll whiten your teeth. The whole point of the tray is to have something to keep the gel in proximity to your teeth for some time. You can get these trays from us here at A&A Dental or most dentists.

Whitening at the Dentist

You can also visit us for a teeth whitening session here at our clinic in Holmdel, NJ. Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office is a lot faster. First, we’ll assess the condition of your teeth, which should help us know what to use and how much of it is needed.

After that, we’ll cover your gums and most of your oral cavity apart from your teeth. This step is crucial because the materials we use can be harmful to your gums. Hydrogen peroxide is then applied to your teeth for an hour or so. We may need to apply a specific type of light to speed up the process.

Once the gel is removed, you’ll have a white and brighter smile. The results of most in-office whitening techniques are fast. There are also some techniques where we start whitening in-office, but we’ll give you instructions that you’ll need to follow at home for full results.

Teeth whitening is excellent, and something many people are after. Luckily, we now have tools to be able to do it in-office, at home, or both.
