When you smile, you want your teeth to be bright and white. However, age, food, smoking, and many other factors can cause your teeth to become stained or discolored over time. Teeth whitening is an effective way to get rid of these stains and restore your teeth to their natural brilliance.
At Sarasota Teeth Whitening Dentistry, we can help you to achieve a beautiful, healthy-looking smile with cosmetic teeth whitening services. This simple, non-invasive treatment can eliminate years of stains and give you a bright, youthful appearance that’s sure to impress!
Our office offers two types of whitening treatments. One type is an in-office bleaching process called chair-side bleaching, where your dentist applies a bleaching agent directly to your teeth.
The other option is a take-home whitening kit that you can use to gradually whiten your teeth at home over several weeks or months. The whitening agent is made of hydrogen peroxide, which can brighten your teeth by changing their color.
Depending on the shade you choose, your results can be up to eight shades lighter. The number of shades depends on your individual dental needs, the whitening method you select, and how well you maintain your oral health.
We can help you to whiten your teeth using a professional, in-office teeth whitening system at our practice in Sarasota. These whitening systems are safe and effective, and they also offer faster results than over-the-counter teeth whitening products.
In-office bleaching involves a single appointment, which usually takes around an hour and a half. During the visit, our dentist covers your lips and gums with a protective gel before applying a powerful tooth-whitening solution. After the whitening gel has been applied, a light is used to activate the whitening product, which is designed to break apart and remove deep-seated stains.
You may experience some sensitivity while the whitening gel is working, but it goes away quickly. This is because the bleaching agent penetrates your enamel to change its color.
Our expert team of dentists will work with you to determine the most appropriate whitening system for your unique situation. This will ensure that you achieve the best results possible.
At-home whitening kits are also available, and they can be fabricated to fit your mouth perfectly. You can then use the trays for 20-60 minutes every day for as long as you like.
Opalescence Boost is another whitening option we offer, which contains both hydrogen peroxide and potassium nitrate. The combination of these chemicals makes the whitening gel stronger and more effective.
The whitening process is safe, and patients often report experiencing only mild discomfort during the procedure. The discomfort can last for just a few minutes, but it typically resolves itself after you leave the office.
