Your dental health is important, and our patients’ safety is our top priority. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all CDC guidelines very closely.
Even if you see your dentist regularly for cleanings and practice good oral hygiene at home, your teeth can become stained and discolored over time. However, a teeth bleaching dentist can help you whiten your teeth quickly and effectively.
What Should I Know About Teeth Whitening?
Looking for a simple and effective way to enhance the appearance of your teeth? Have you ever considered professional teeth whitening treatments? Our treatments in Sarasota gets rid of teeth stains and discoloration! Call our office today to learn more about professional whitening gel.
We find that patients are able to see marked improvements in stains resulting from the consumption of specific foods and drinks. If you are a big coffee, tea or red wine drinker you might be surprised at how white your teeth can get with professional whitening. However, keep in mind that some stains are entirely resistant to bleaching gel, and those include overexposure to fluoride, advanced tooth decay, and the long-term use of tetracycline. In addition, if you have any dental restorations, such as crowns, veneers, fillings, or a dental bridge, they may stay the same color.
Since teeth whitening isn’t permanent, our dentists recommend periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your results. We provide follow-up treatments with the skilled dentists in our office or an at-home treatment for greater convenience. At your consultation, one of our dentists in Sarasota will conduct a complete examination of your mouth to understand your general dental health and help you decide what the best treatment is for your needs and to help you achieve your goals. Make your appointment today.
What Is the Process for Teeth Whitening at Home?
To help you achieve a brighter smile without taking a lot of time away from your busy schedule, we also offer at-home teeth whitening kits. To begin the process, we’ll take an impression of your mouth, which is used to create a customized whitening tray that fits securely around your teeth. The whitening trays look similar to a mouth guard. You’ll fill the whitening tray with our professional-grade bleaching gel and wear them for approximately an hour every day. Within two weeks, you can enjoy a brighter smile that’s up to six shades whiter.
What Is the Price of Teeth Whitening?
The type of whitening treatment you choose, the severity of your tooth discoloration, the number of treatments required to reach your desired level of whitening, and if you require any follow-up treatments are examples of the different variables that can affect how much you pay for teeth whitening. A take-home whitening kit is typically less expensive than in-office teeth whitening.
Since professional whitening is considered an elective cosmetic treatment, it’s usually not covered by insurance. For more information about teeth bleaching cost, contact us to schedule a consultation. Your dentist can provide a pricing estimate during your appointment.
Is There a Noticeable Difference Between Professional and DIY Teeth Whitening?
If you’re considering whitening your teeth, your first thought might be to try an over-the-counter product, such as a rinse, toothpaste, or whitening strips. While you might notice a mild improvement when using these types of teeth whitening products, they lack the dependability, safety, and strength when compared to professional treatments. They can also cause inconsistent whitening and irritate your teeth and gums when used incorrectly. Since whitening treatments provided by a teeth bleaching dentist are performed under carefully monitored conditions, you can achieve safe and reliable whitening results.
We look forward to helping you achieve a bright, gleaming smile. Call our office today to make an appointment for teeth whitening in Sarasota.
