"After years and years of not liking my teeth, forcing me to cover my mouth when I smiled, I finally decided to do something about it. After a complete exam, Dr. Streko laid out all of my options and the corresponding treatment plans.
My smile is now even better than I could dream was possible! How do you thank someone for fulfilling a dream? I just smile!"

One of the most convenient, most expedient ways to improve the look of your smile is with professional teeth whitening services from your Westfield, NJ dentist. Studies show that a brighter smile is viewed as more attractive, and that attractive smiles have many benefits. When we greet others with a bright, warm smile, we are perceived as being not only friendly, but healthy, sincere, successful, and even wealthy. The best thing about a bright smile, though, is that we feel confident.
Teeth whitening is essentially teeth bleaching; the application of the right concentration of peroxide solution for the right duration of time. When properly applied, this whitening solution dissolves the organic material from foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, and soda that has settled into the pores in the teeth. As material is lifted, the teeth become progressively whiter.
The process of teeth whitening was first developed for home use. A safe and effective way of removing years from the smile and the face. Home whitening is performed daily with the use of customized trays designed in our office. Professional whitening gel is inserted into the trays and they fit comfortably over the teeth. Day by day, the color of teeth lightens until, after about two weeks of daily use, the smile is several shades lighter.
As teeth whitening has evolved, we have been given the opportunity to achieve optimal results through accelerated processes. Using the Zoom! Whitening system, Dr. Streko and Dr. O'Connell transform smiles in about an hour. This teeth whitening treatment, performed in our Westfield dental office, begins with the application of protective sheeting over the lips and gums. Protective eyewear may also be worn. The teeth are then carefully "painted" with whitening gel and a special light activates the chemical reaction that dissolves stains. This process may be repeated up to three times in the hour-long visit, lightening the smile by as much as eight shades.
Teeth whitening is intended as a professional treatment. In consultation with your dentist, you can determine the shade of white that will produce the most dazzling result without making your smile look fake.
