Reveal a Brighter Smile Today!
Are you feeling the weight of a discolored smile? You can skip the generic over-the-counter treatments and enjoy drastic results with professional teeth whitening. This is a great way to rejuvenate your appearance without having to make significant investments in cosmetic dentistry or plastic surgery. Our office uses the latest solutions to deeply penetrate the enamel to reveal spectacular results. We are pleased to offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening in Jacksonville.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Your teeth may become stained or discolored for several reasons. Most adults gradually notice their pearly whites look less vibrant as the years pass by. Some of the most significant causes of stains on the enamel and general darkening of the teeth include:
- Smoking and other tobacco use.
- Wine — especially red wine.
- Foods like tomato sauce, ripe berries, dark chocolate, and others.
- Poor oral hygiene.
What Are My Teeth Whitening Options?
If over-the-counter products can’t give you the results you want, our office offers 2 options to whiten your teeth. After an initial consultation to ensure you’re a candidate, we’ll help you choose the best one for your needs and your lifestyle.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening is a well-recognized leader for providing significant improvement in tooth discoloration. In fact, your teeth can become as much as 8 shades whiter in about 1 hour. We apply a protective barrier to your lips and gums to avoid causing any irritation to the soft tissues. The professional-grade whitening gel is placed on your teeth and a special light is used to disrupt the discoloration molecules. The light is used for an average of three 15-minute intervals. At the end of your appointment, you’ll walk out with a beautiful, bright smile.
If you prefer the convenience of an over-the-counter product but want professional results, now you can have both options. Opalescence is a take-home kit that allows you to achieve professional-quality results without leaving the house. We provide you with custom-fit trays to ensure the even and consistent distribution of the whitening agent. You use the kit every day for about 2 weeks. As the days pass, you’ll see your stains fade and a brighter smile shine through.
After you complete your whitening treatment (or during the process for at-home whitening), it is important that you avoid consuming highly pigmented foods and beverages. Your tooth enamel is more vulnerable to stains immediately after whitening, so do not drink coffee, smoke, or eat vibrant foods in the first several hours after the gel has been removed.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening offers several benefits for patients who are interested in improving the appearance of their smiles. Some of the most significant include:
- Reveal a more youthful smile without having to invest significant time or money in other treatments.
- Choose from in-office or at-home treatments to whiten at your preferred pace.
- Results can last for a long time with proper care and maintenance of your teeth.
- Enjoy all the confidence of a beautiful, sparkling smile.
