A variety of factors can lead to stained teeth. The foods and drinks we consume may leave our teeth discolored over time. In addition, trauma or the use of certain medications, such as tetracycline, may cause teeth stains. In order to return your smile to optimal beauty, The Silverstrom Group offers professional teeth whitening. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, discuss our cosmetic whitening procedures. Zoom! Whitening Zoom! Whitening allows your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists to whiten smiles in under an hour. First, a bleaching gel will be applied to your teeth. The gel will then be activated with a special light, removing discoloration in about 45 minutes. Kor Deep Bleaching This system often helps remove intrinsic, or permanent, teeth stains. Usually caused by injury or medication, permanent stains can be difficult to remove. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will first take an impression of your smile. Using the impression, a custom-made whitening tray will be created. Next, you will receive a powerful bleaching gel. For about two weeks, you will wear the gel-filled tray while you sleep. Patients may see their smiles brightened by up to 16 shades. Bonding and Veneers In addition to teeth whitening, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom offer other cosmetic solutions for dental stains. With dental bonding, a specially shaded composite resin will be applied to the tooth. Bonding masks stains and repairs damaged teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain placed on the front teeth. The veneers blend seamlessly with your smile, masking teeth stains, correcting the appearance of misalignment, and repairing damaged teeth.
