Professional teeth whitening is a routine dental procedure that provides excellent value. In Clifton, NJ, patients can expect to pay approximately $300 to $800 for teeth whitening services.
About Professional Teeth Whitening
While there are many forms of teeth whitening, including over-the-counter products, we use advanced teeth whitening techniques in the office to bring you brilliant, noticeable results.
Over-the-Counter Vs. Professional Teeth Whitening
You may have seen whitening products in your local supermarket or pharmacy. You may have also seen advertisements online. If you buy whitening products like strips and toothpaste from a local store, most are safe when used as directed. Still, they will not provide consistent, noticeable results like professional whitening.
Avoid buying whitening products from online ads. They sometimes contain too much peroxide and could cause extreme tooth sensitivity or burn your gums.

The Professional Teeth Whitening Process
The professional teeth whitening process begins with selecting the shade you wish to achieve. Your dentist will help you choose the right tone to look natural yet create impressive results.
Next, the dentist covers your gums with a thin sheet called a dental dam. They may also paint a protective coating on your gums to keep the strong whitening solution from causing discomfort.
The dentist applies the whitening gel, letting it activate for approximately 15 minutes and thoroughly rinsing it. The process repeats three to four times until the dentist reaches the desired shade.
After teeth whitening, the dentist may apply a special fluoride solution to help rehydrate and remineralize the teeth. The solution helps to protect against excess sensitivity after the procedure.
Keeping Your Teeth Whiter Longer
You can expect your teeth to look their best for approximately six months to two years, depending on how well you care for them.
Ensure you follow an excellent oral hygiene routine, including brushing, flossing, and making all scheduled dental visits. Avoiding darkly pigmented foods and beverages like coffee, tea, dark chocolate, and red wine can help to keep your teeth looking brighter longer.
