Do you ever wish your smile was brighter? Teeth whitening is easier than you think. Say so long to less-than-white teeth. Teeth naturally lose their whiteness over time. It may be due to age and/or exposure to substances like coffee, tea, wine or tobacco. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Why not use your smile to help make a positive lasting impression. Are you ready for a smile makeover?

Joseph W. Worthington, D.D.S.
1305 Post Road, Suite 104
Fairfield, CT 06824
(203) 256-8073

With Dr. Worthington, you can choose to either have your teeth whitened at the office or at home. In-office procedures are carried out with the ZOOM teeth-whitening laser. Whitening your teeth is painless and can be done in less than an hour. If you are looking to get beautiful pearly whites for a little less money, go with the equally effective at-home whitening procedure. Dr. Worthington will mold a mouthpiece specifically for your teeth. You only need to fill the mold with a bleaching gel and wear it as you sleep. The at-home method takes several weeks to achieve final results. Set up a consult and see which system fits your lifestyle.

Dental Health Associates will whiten your teeth through bleaching. First, the dentists will take a mold of your teeth, then a model is made and a clear tray is built for your teeth. The tray is then filled with a bleaching agent and placed on your teeth. You will wear it several hours a day for one to two weeks and it can be worn at night while you sleep. Wake up in the morning with a whiter smile than when you went to bed.

Dr. Steven Balloch uses BriteSmile teeth whitening in his practice. He has been practicing in the greater Hartford area for 20 years. The procedure is very effective and shows immediate results within an hour. Your teeth become anywhere from six to eight shades whiter with one application. A whitening gel (mild hydrogen peroxide) is applied to your teeth. The application is then exposed to a blue light for 20 minutes. This is applied twice more for a total of one hour and results can last for years. Call for a free cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Center For Esthetic Dentistry

Dr. Lerch will help brighten up your smile. You have two options. Zoom is a whitening gel applied to your teeth where the gel penetrates the tooth enamel and through a process known as photo-fenton, the stains are broken down. This procedure takes years off your smile. If you would rather try an at-home treatment, that is also an option. In this procedure, custom whitening trays are created to fit your mouth. At home, you will fill it with a mild bleaching gel. It is prescribed that you wear it daily for a few hours. After a few weeks, you will see a brighter smile.
