Are you always dreaming of achieving that Hollywood-style smile? We can help you do so through professional whitening services. Most professional whitening is completed through the use of dental bleach. Dental bleach contains compounds that extricate concentrated stains, so it’s good for brightening chompers.

During our in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Sylvan Stern cautiously applies a prescription-strength bleach gel to patients’ pearly whites before sealing the gel with a light; this chair-side treatment is quick enough to be over in one checkup. There are also home whitening procedures made possible through the use of oral trays; this service normally takes a few weeks to complete.

Some patients report slight sensitivity after receiving teeth whitening. If you notice any sensitivity after whitening, don’t worry: this is not out of the ordinary. Your pearly whites might need some time to heal from the bleaching, so deliberate on using a sensitivity toothpaste while you wait. If you are using whitening trays and seeing moderate to intense sensitivity, please stop the treatment and contact us.

Keeping your teeth white can be difficult, but you can count on brushing two times per day and flossing once per day to help you out. You should also avoid teeth-staining foods, brush with whitening toothpaste, and stop by our office for professional cleanings regularly.
