Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. Besides age, all of the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods we take in can impact the color of our teeth on a daily basis. Unfortunately, even with proper maintenance and daily brushing, sometimes the shade of your teeth can suffer in the long run.
That is exactly why your Middlesex NJ cosmetic dentist offers teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we'll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over again. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the tray for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades!
To see if you are a candidate for this type of whitening, call your cosmetic dentist near Middlesex NJ at (732) 469-6662 or click here today!

With so many different whitening products on the market, it's easy to get confused. Here are the facts you need to know before you commit.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
What are the Side Effects?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Phillips ZOOM at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, Potassium Nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
What's the difference between OTC Whitening Solutions and Phillips Zoom?
Over-the-counter whitening products are not customized to meet your needs. With Phillips Zoom, the whitening process is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for at-home treatments or just the right light intensity and duration in the dentist's office.
How long will my Zoom Whitening results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains. However, through consumption of coffee, soft drinks, and natural aging your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat reoccuring discoloration. Only Phillips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
What Causes Teeth to Discolor?
There are many causes to tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly colored foods and drinks such as berries, coffee, tea, and red wine. Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
How Long Does it Take?
With Phillips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you will achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on concentration of formulation and wear time you select.
