Teeth Whitening in Winter Haven, FL

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that removes stains and discoloration from the surface of the teeth. Our dentist, Stefani J Allison DMD, often recommends professional whitening treatment to remove deep stains that have lasted for years. Professional teeth whitening helps patients achieve a white and bright smile that they are proud to show off.

The Different Types of Teeth Whitening

There are a few different methods for teeth whitening, from at-home whitening kits to in-office laser bleaching.

At-home whitening kits usually come in a gel form that is painted directly onto teeth, or as strips that are placed over teeth. These generally contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which bleaches teeth.

Laser bleaching is a series of in-office procedures that whiten teeth. The dentist first uses a special bleaching gel that is painted onto teeth and then uses an ultraviolet light that activates the gel, which then penetrates your teeth and improves their appearance.

The Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

Time

It only takes about an hour to get your teeth whiter. Compared to other forms of teeth whitening, a dental professional can whiten your teeth in less time. 

Safety

Teeth whitening isn’t harmful. It’s one of the safest cosmetic procedures! Peroxide, the active ingredient in whitening agents, breaks down into oxygen and water. Oxygen penetrates the enamel to remove stains. Meanwhile, water carries away any leftover residue.

Speed

In just one trip to the dentist, you can whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. The effects of teeth whitening last between six months and two years, so you’ll be able to enjoy a bright, white smile for several years before needing another treatment. So, whether you’ve noticed that your teeth are looking yellow, or you’re tired of your aging teeth, teeth whitening can give you the bright white smile you’ve been dreaming of. 

Non-invasive

The non-invasive nature of teeth whitening makes it easy to fit into your busy schedule. In many cases, you don’t even have to take a leave from the office. You can come in for a treatment during your lunch break, or you can schedule it during a break between other treatments.

Improved Confidence

Because teeth are whitened, many patients experience enhanced confidence in their smiles. Knowing that your smile is bright can make you more outgoing and willing to take on life’s daily challenges.

Improving Your Appearance

Everyone wants to look their best, but a busy lifestyle can make it tough to keep up with your appearance. Having a beautiful smile certainly helps. Teeth whitening offers a way to look great even if your lifestyle doesn’t. Coffee, tea, and tobacco cause teeth to yellow. Also, the natural aging process causes teeth to darken and look dull. Teeth whitening can reverse all of these effects.
