A Healthy Diet

One of the most common causes of discoloration from foods dark pigments. Much like tobacco, dark drinks and foods can almost dye the teeth a darker shade. Wine, coffee, and tea are all common culprits. Try drinking water instead to wash your mouth clean.
Treatments for a Brighter Smile
For in-office teeth whitening, we offer ZOOM! We carefully cover the lips and gums to reduce irritation before applying the whitening gel to the teeth. The whitening is activated with a special light. In-office teeth whitening usually takes about an hour in our Altamonte Springs dental office. Results are noticeable immediately after your treatment.
For at-home teeth whitening, we will take impressions of your teeth and create custom teeth whitening trays. We will review your treatment instructions with you during your appointment to ensure your treatment is effective and comfortable. Patients will usually notice results around the 10-14 day mark. At-home teeth whitening is an ideal option for patients who are on the go and want to achieve whiter teeth on their own time.
