Due to genetics, the overconsumption of certain foods and beverages, or other factors, teeth can develop a yellow, lackluster appearance over time. If you are struggling with dental discoloration, visit our Branford dental team to learn more about your treatment options. We might recommend that you undergo one of our professional whitening services. These treatments have the potential to help you achieve a truly radiant smile in a short amount of time.

Why Choose New Haven Dental Group for Teeth Whitening?

Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth often become discolored due to the consumption of things like coffee, tea, and red wine. Genetics, certain medications, smoking, and other factors can also contribute to staining. Whether your stains are intrinsic (in the enamel) or extrinsic (on the surface of the enamel), professional whitening may be able to help you achieve a new glow and fresh confidence. During your cosmetic consultation, our team will help you understand your options for brightening your smile.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening formulas use a form of peroxide or another whitening agent to penetrate the tooth enamel and break up unwanted pigment molecules. There are many different bleaching products on the market, but in our practice, we prefer to use the popular and highly rated Zoom! system. When you visit us for whitening, we will customize your treatment to suit your needs and preferences. For example, we will determine whether a take-home or in-office treatment is the best fit for you.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take home whitening kits use custom dental trays that you fill with a powerful whitening formula. You simply have to use the kit as instructed, and you should start to notice a difference in your teeth within a few days. Often, final results take about two weeks to achieve.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you want to brighten your smile as quickly as possible — for example, if you have an important event in the near future — we may recommend an in-office Zoom! whitening treatment. We simply apply a bleaching gel and activate it with a special light. In as little as one hour, your teeth may become up to eight shades brighter!
