Tooth WhiteningAn Overview
Achieve a whiter, brighter smile in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
Teeth whitening can be an effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Our in-office teeth whitening treatment can brighten your smile multiple shades in just about an hour. Our take-home teeth whitening treatment can help patients achieve a whiter smile over a period of time.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening can be less effective than professional teeth whitening. Store-bought kits may even damage the teeth in the process. Professional teeth whitening offers long-lasting results, reduced tooth sensitivity, and noticeable changes to the appearance of your smile.
We offer professional teeth whitening solutions to patients in Altamonte Springs, FL, Orlando, FL, and surrounding areas. Dr. Clay Miller, Dr. Kirk Solberg, and Dr. Mark Williams can work with you to determine which teeth whitening option is right for you.
Tooth Whitening What to Expect
At the beginning of any treatment, we will perform an evaluation of the smile to ensure high-quality results. We will discuss your cosmetic goals, assess your oral health, and budget prior to your treatment. Our goal is to offer you the most effective treatment to help you achieve your ideal smile.
Certain tooth stains cannot be treated effectively with professional teeth whitening agents. However, we do offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry solutions to improve the appearance of discolored teeth if teeth whitening is not applicable. If tooth discoloration cannot be treated using teeth whitening, we may recommend dental bonding or porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
Do You Need In-Office Or At-Home Teeth Whitening?
If professional teeth whitening is right for you, you can choose from in-office or at-home teeth whitening. 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 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.
What If I Have Permanent Stains?
In some cases, permanent stains can form below the surface of the tooth enamel as a result of injury, fluorosis, or the use of certain antibiotics. While at-home trays can sometimes address these stains, you may need another option. We can mask permanent teeth stains with porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain placed on the front of the teeth, instantly changing the appearance of the teeth and masking cosmetic issues, such as discoloration.
