Teeth Whitening in Westfield

how can teeth whitening improve my smile?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment used to improve discoloration and staining of the teeth by applying a whitening gel that contains hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. 

The peroxide bleaches your teeth because it contains oxygen molecules that react and break down staining molecules, effectively removing intrinsic and extrinsic stains to reveal a whiter enamel.

Whitening your teeth at the dentist produces the most effective results because we use a high concentration of peroxide while ensuring that we protect your mouth from damage or sensitivity. Contact us at Harmony Dentistry today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jessica Barton.

Dr. Barton will examine your teeth to determine if teeth whitening is the best option for you. You must be in good oral health before proceeding.

If you are receiving take-home trays, these will be created using our intraoral scanner. They will be created in-house by the team you know and trust! You will pick these up when they are ready within a few weeks.

Because we apply the whitening gel directly to your teeth during an in-office treatment, we keep your mouth open with a cheek retractor and apply a protective gel to your gums so the whitening agent doesn’t come into contact with your soft tissue.

Once you receive your whitening trays and gel, you will follow the written instructions on how to apply the gel to your trays and wear them for the specified amount of time.

in-office teeth whitening

This is a 90 minute appointment that takes place in the dental chair. We recommend this for fast results or special events like weddings or where formal photos are going to be taken. This treatment can produce drastic results, lightening your teeth by up to 10 shades. 

For severe staining, you could need multiple sessions. The whitening gel is applied directly to your teeth and rinsed out. We take precautions to protect the soft tissue in your mouth. You may experience tooth sensitivity following the procedure, which will subside within 48 hours.

take-home teeth whitening

Don’t want to make the trip to the dentist's office? Try take-home whitening! We just need you to come in for a very quick appointment to take a scan of your teeth. Once they’re ready, you can pick them up and begin whitening your teeth from home. 

You will receive custom-made trays that fit over your teeth and form a protective seal. This prevents the whitening gel from irritating or damaging your gums. Along with your trays, you will receive the whitening agent which is applied to the inside of your trays. 

Then, you pop them in your mouth for the specified amount of time. This treatment produces equally effective, but gradual results compared to in-office whitening. You can expect to wear your trays each day for 1-2 weeks.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is generally very safe when professionally done by a dentist. After all, this treatment is part of a complete dental healthcare program for many patients. However, teeth whitening shouldn’t be overdone because it involves stripping the enamel, which can harm the teeth in the long term.

It’s vital to follow the instructions provided by Dr. Jessica Barton carefully to ensure the process is safe. This will also help you avoid any potential side effects, such as gum irritation and sensitivity.

How long will teeth whitening last?

When teeth whitening is performed by a professional, it can last anywhere from six months to three years. However, the lifetime of this treatment can vary depending on the type of teeth whitening you choose and your dental care habits.

Staining is likely to re-occur if you resume your food and drink consumption habits. We recommend avoiding habits that increase the risk of teeth staining or discoloring to maintain the new spackle. Limit the consumption of some foods with added colorants as well as dark-colored drinks like coffee and red wine.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Professional dentists suggest that if you have enamel erosion, gum disease, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not use tooth bleaching agents. If you are allergic to tooth whiteners or have other serious dental problems, you should talk to  Dr. Jessica Barton first to see if this treatment is suitable for you.

The dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best whitening treatment for you. Most importantly, ensuring that your teeth are free from tartar and plaque can help provide the best whitening results.

Can I still do teeth whitening if I have sensitive teeth?

Yes. You can still have professional teeth whitening even if you have teeth sensitivity. This condition can be managed prior to teeth whitening. Your dentist can provide desensitizing treatments to help reduce the discomfort or sensitivity you may experience during the bleaching procedure.

Dr. Jessica Barton will examine your teeth and gums to ensure the treatment is safe for you and determine which whitening option suits you. She will also guide you through a routine for sensitive teeth to ensure you obtain a whiter smile.

How can I extend my teeth whitening results?

There are several things you can do to extend your teeth whitening results. First, you should brush your teeth daily using whitening toothpaste. Use whitening mouthwashes instead of dyed ones. You should also avoid tobacco products, foods, and beverages that stain your teeth.
