Do you wish you could flash a dazzling, bright smile? For patients with embarrassing dental discoloration, teeth whitening may improve the appearance of your smile. Your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, offer a range of professional teeth whitening products to help you obtain the gorgeous smile you deserve. Brighter Smiles in Under an Hour With Zoom! Whitening, your Livingston dentists can reduce the appearance of teeth stains in under an hour. First, a protective covering will be placed over your teeth and gums. Then, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will coat your teeth in a powerful bleaching gel. A special light will be used to activate the gel, erasing stains. Whiten Your Teeth from Home Your Livingston dentists also offer a teeth whitening system you can use from the comfort of your own home. With KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will create a set of whitening trays. Next, you will be prescribed a bleaching solution. For about one to two weeks you will wear the gel-filled trays while you sleep. For patients with sensitive teeth, our at-home whitening system reduces sensitivity and gum irritation. Patients often report smiles brightened by up to sixteen shades. Addressing Permanent Teeth Stains In some cases, teeth stains may be intrinsic, or permanent. These stains develop in the inner tooth structure, not on the surface. Trauma and the use of certain medications, such as tetracycline, can lead to intrinsic teeth stains. To correct these stains, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom may recommend dental bonding and porcelain veneers. Veneers involve the placement of a thin shell of porcelain over the front of the teeth. Custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile, veneers mask permanent discoloration. Dental bonding refers to a composite resin that Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom place onto the teeth in several thin layers. The material matches surrounding teeth and covers intrinsic stains.
