Teeth Whitening

Stained or discolored teeth can be embarrassing and even look unhealthy, causing you to hide your smile. 

Unlike over-the-counter products, professional teeth whitening can give you whiter, brighter teeth in just one treatment.

Our dentists at Ridgewood Dental Associates in Ridgewood, NJ, can give you a stunning smile with professional teeth whitening.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Our office uses Philips Zoom!® Teeth Whitening, a treatment that works by combining a powerful whitening agent with a special UV light to whiten your smile in as few as one appointment. The UV light activates the bleaching solution, which breaks down and lifts staining and discoloration that make your teeth look yellowed and unhealthy. With the proper care, your new smile can look great for years. Whether you want to correct one tooth or all of your teeth, our dentists can help you achieve the brighter, whiter smile you desire.

Can I Use Store-Bought Whitening Kits Instead?

In-office teeth whitening whitens your teeth more effectively than over-the-counter whitening products such as whitening strips, bleaching kits, or whitening toothpaste. While it might seem cheaper initially, store-bought teeth whitening products often require weeks or months of use and multiple kits before you can see results, which can quickly add up and become more expensive than professional treatment. Patients who undergo whitening treatment at our Ridgewood, NJ, dental practice experience whiter teeth, often in just one treatment that takes about an hour to complete. Our whitening procedure is quick, effective, and provides dazzling results.

Combine Teeth Whitening With Other Dental Treatments

If you have deep stains, they may not respond to whitening. In this case, veneers may be a better option because they can conceal your discoloration. Some patients who want veneers to conceal other flaws often choose to undergo professional teeth whitening treatment first so their new veneers can be shade-matched with their whiter natural teeth, resulting in a dazzling smile. Whitening treatment can also be paired with other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments to help enhance your new smile.

Is Teeth


Yes. Teeth whitening is one of the safest dental treatments available. Our in-office whitening is performed under the supervision of our experienced dentists to ensure the treatment goes smoothly and you feel minimal discomfort. To prevent irritation, your dentist will cover your lips and gums with a guard before applying the bleaching solution. Additionally, if you have sensitive teeth, your dentist can adjust the concentration of the whitening solution to minimize the risk of any tooth discomfort.

Affordable Financing Available

We do not want financial barriers to prevent patients from achieving beautiful smiles. We are proud to accept CareCredit® financing which allows patients to break up their costs into affordable payments.
