Teeth Whitening in Connecticut

Teeth Whitening brightens smiles in Connecticut.

There have never been a greater number of effective methods for getting brighter, whiter teeth from your dentist. Whether you’re looking for convenience, dramatic results, or something simple to use, our Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates professionals in Connecticut offer all the latest whitening products to keep your smile absolutely glowing.

Which whitening method is right for me?

Whiter teeth have become the top aesthetic objective of most dental patients. This quest for whiter teeth has led to many new, effective, and convenient ways to get noticeably brighter results. The whitening experts at Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates will help you choose just the right product to ensure the results you’re hoping for. If you’re looking for fast, reliable, safe, and effective in-office whitening, we’ll help you get a noticeably brighter smile in as little as one visit.

How do whitening treatments work?

Most teeth whitening and bleaching products are fairly straightforward methods that change the shade of your tooth enamel in a noninvasive, in-office dental procedure. They are an ideal way to improve the look of your smile without excessive costs or spending excessive amounts of time in the dentist’s chair.
Even better, some whitening treatments available from your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist can be used at home. Whatever the choice, you may see teeth up to six shades whiter after only two weeks of treatment. In-office whitening is another popular option that produces fast results.

Will whitening harm my dental work?

While whitening is generally safe–even for those with fillings, crowns, and other restorations–it only works on your teeth’s natural enamel. Therefore, if you’re planning to have any type of replacement work done, you should do so after, rather than before whitening. This way, your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist can more closely match your restorations to the current shade of your brightened teeth.

How long do whitening treatments last?

Although teeth whitening treatments last for a reasonably long period of time, none are permanent. Most will require touch-ups after several years. The need for touch-ups may be even greater if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Why do my teeth need whitening?

The reasons for whitening vary by patient. Some of the most popular reasons for whitening include fluorosis, the spotting of teeth caused by excess fluoridation during their development. For other patients, teeth simply loose their natural glow from normal wear and tear on the outer tooth surface. Some patients complain of staining from medications like tetracycline. While others simply have naturally yellowed or stained teeth.

How can I be sure I’m getting the best whitening method for my teeth?

Your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist will advise you based on your objectives for whitening, discussion of any medications you take regularly, and your daily habits such as smoking or drinking coffee. Your answers will help your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates professionals determine the most effective whitening solution for your needs. Regardless of which regimen your dentist recommends, you can count on a noticeably whiter, brighter smile after only a few treatments.

Which whitening treatment is best for my needs?

Your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates office offers a number of whitening alternatives. We will help you find the right one based on your individual goals and needs. Much will depend on how deeply stained your current enamel is and how fast you hope to see results. Let us help you get the brighter smile you’ve always dreamed of.

In-Office Teeth Whitening brightens smiles in Connecticut.

It’s hard to light up a room with your smile if your teeth have become faded and yellow. If you’ve got a wedding, class reunion or big business presentation coming up, you might not have the time to wait for a take-home whitening kit to work its magic. Happily, Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates offers incredibly convenient, remarkably effective alternatives: in-office chairside whitening treatments that remove years of discoloration and restore your smile to its former glory in as little as 60 minutes.

We offer non-invasive procedures that are simple, safe and painless. We start by applying a whitening gel to your teeth. Oxygen is then released from the gel through exposure to a specially designed light, stripping away unsightly stains. The result is a dramatically younger-looking smile that’s up to eight to ten shades lighter.

Convenient Take-Home Whitening Kits

There’s nothing like a whiter smile to brighten your day. Whiter teeth are not only more pleasing to the eye, they can also boost self-confidence and make you appear more professional. Your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist will help you choose an effective and affordable solution that delivers the greatest impact with the least amount of time spent in the dentist’s chair.

Take-home whitening kits are ideal for patients who wish to achieve professional results in the comfort of their own homes, but under the guidance of a licensed dental expert.

The benefits of take-home whitening.

At Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates, we’ve found that many patients can’t afford to spend time at our dental offices for professional in-office whitening treatments. Take-home whitening products offer a convenient, but effective alternative. Used as directed, these take home kits help patients achieve dramatic results under the professional guidance of our Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentists—and with far fewer trips to our offices.

Get a noticeably brighter smile at home.

Your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist knows your oral health and thoroughly understands the whitening process. She or he will also be aware of any possible sensitivities that may occur. Under our expert guidance, you can achieve the results you desire in far less time than with most over-the-counter whitening products, such as toothpastes or strips. Your dentist will closely monitor your progress to ensure you get the greatest results in the fastest and safest way possible.

There are two types of stains that whitening products address. Surface stains, called extrinsic stains, appear only on the outer layer of your teeth. Deeper stains, known as intrinsic stains, are buried deep within the dentin underneath your tooth’s surface. These deeper stains live within your teeth’s tiny cracks, making them more difficult to reach. Your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist will recommend the whitening product that best addresses the specific type of stain affecting your teeth.

How take-home teeth whitening kits work.

You can trust your Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates dentist to recommend the best whitening product for you needs, whether it’s an in-office treatment, over-the-counter one, or take-home whitening kit. To be effective, all whitening products must contain some form of active ingredient. In most cases, this means hydrogen peroxide. When oxygen causes the whitening agent to react with the discolored molecules that cause staining, the stain molecules break apart, leaving behind whiter, brighter teeth.

Over-the-counter whitening vs. take-home whitening.

Although there are many products available at a retail level, the whitening experts at Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates know your teeth. They will take into consideration your current stain level, any known sensitivities that might occur, as well as the whitening level you hope to achieve. You’ll get improved whitening results in less time with guidance from a professional dentist who understands your needs.

Feel good about your smile again.

When you’re confident about your smile, people notice. The teeth whitening experts at Dr. Jack L. Gish & Associates understand how to help you regain your whiter smile and the greater self-confidence that follows. Ask us to recommend the most suitable whitening method for you and your teeth.
