West Long Branch Dental Office

Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to you at our West Long Branch dental office to help you improve the look of yours. Professional teeth whitening, is your best choice when you need immediate whitening results. During our in-office bleaching, Marc Berley, DMD will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. A bleaching agent is then applied to your teeth and a special light is used to enhance the action of the agent.

Some patients prefer to do the whitening in the privacy of their own home and here at our West Long Branch dental office we do offer several types of safe, effective products for use at home which can be dispensed by Dr. Berley. They are generally teeth whitening trays, strips, or paint-on products. These products contain peroxide(s) which actually bleach the tooth enamel. Peroxide-containing whiteners come in a gel and are placed in teeth whitening trays. Some products are used twice a day for 2 weeks, while others are intended for overnight use for 1-2 weeks. We will make a custom-fitted teeth whitening tray for you that will fit your teeth precisely. Teeth whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide bleaching on one side. Whitening strip kits come with two types of strips: strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The bleaching agent is applied by placing the strips over your teeth and gently pressing the strips into place to make sure there is total contact with all your teeth. Teeth whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day and the duration of treatment will vary.

Another option is paint-on teeth whitening which allows you to apply a bleaching agent directly to your teeth without a tray or strip. You simply “paint” the whitener onto the surface of clean, dry teeth and wait about 30 minutes while the paint turns to a dry film. To remove this film, you simply brush your teeth with a toothbrush. Paint-on whitening products require twice-daily applications to be effective. The duration of treatment will vary. An advantage in this process is that you can selectively paint individual teeth. If you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile even brighter, you should investigate all of your options at our West Long Branch dental office.
