Think of spring cleaning and what comes to mind? Washing the windows, cleaning the gutters, organizing the garage, trimming the trees, whitening your teeth. What? What was that last one? Yep. There’s no better time that spring to whiten your teeth. And there’s no better dentist to trust with your teeth whitening than Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ.
As we age, our teeth succumb to staining and discoloration. This can have a number of different causes including:
- Your favorite foods and drinks, such as strawberries, tomatoes, carrots, coffee, cola and red wine
- Certain antibiotics, such as tetracycline
- Tobacco use
- Teeth grinding, which can lead to micro-cracks that hide stains
- Falls and other injuries that cause teeth to crack, which collect staining debris
- The unavoidable aging process
Teeth Whitening to the Rescue
While there are a number of over-the-counter options for teeth whitening, none can compare to the results you’ll see with treatment in your dentist’s office. Dr. Carollo uses Opalescence®, which contains either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide to penetrate your teeth’s outer layer—the enamel—to reach and bleach the discolored molecules inside your tooth’s middle layer, the dentin. With Opalescence, you can choose to whiten your teeth in our office or in the comfort of your own home.
Opalescence Boost is the in-office variety and contains a 40 percent hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel that whitens teeth in about one hour. Your smile will be several shades brighter after just one treatment. On the other hand, if you can’t spare the time for an in-office appointment and would rather whiten your teeth at home, then we can give you Opalescence PF. This take-home whitening kit comes with professional grade gel and custom-made trays. Simply fill the trays with gel and wear them according to Dr. Carollo’s instructions.
