Teeth Whitening Services in Fort Lauderdale

Do you want a bright smile and Teeth Whitening that will make people stop and take notice? Not everyone is blessed with a bright, white smile. Many people have naturally yellow teeth. Not only that, but coffee, tobacco, and aging can all lead to tainted, yellow teeth. Fortunately, there are a variety of procedures available that can give you the smile that you have always dreamed of!

Some common whitening procedures and treatments include:

About Whitening Methods

While there are several kinds of treatments yet, not all of them are as equally effective. Over the counter gels and bleaching kits are generally more affordable, yet the results are often less than desirable. Personal do-it-yourself methods can leave stains and the results do not last without continued use. For optimum results, only professional teeth whitening services can suffice.

The Right Teeth Whitening Procedure for You

Professional tooth whitening services are done by using a potent bleaching agent – often enhanced with laser light. The bleaching gel contains a much higher concentration of peroxide than found in over the counter whitening gels. During the procedure, a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth while a protective gel protects the gums from chemical exposure. Often times, a laser is used to activate the bleaching gel and further accentuates the brightness of the teeth.

Not only does this procedure make your teeth whiter than other methods, but it will also last much longer. The positive results can last for years! Professional tooth whitening will give you the bright, youthful smile you have always wanted.

Teeth Whitening Aftercare Tips

After your teeth whitening treatment, you want to protect those new pearly whites. In the few days after your treatment, your teeth will be more porous, making them easier to stain. Here are a few tips to help keep your teeth whiter longer:

  • For two days after your teeth whitening treatment, you'll need to avoid any foods, drinks, or anything else that can stain your teeth. These include dark liquids (coffee, tea, wine, dark soft drinks), dark berries (blueberries, blackberries), and tobacco products (smoking, chewing tobacco, etc.)
  • Brush and floss regularly. Brushing immediately after eating or drinking will also help.
  • Begin using a whitening toothpaste a week after your treatment
  • Use straws to drink
  • Stop smoking or using other tobacco products.
  • Go easy on foods and drinks that stain (wine, berries, dark soft drinks)

Teeth Whitening FAQ

Do teeth whitening treatments hurt?

No, professional teeth whitening treatments aren't painful. Whether using a convenient at-home treatment or having Zoom! Whitening in our office, teeth whitening is a very easy, comfortable procedure. Some patients with sensitive teeth may experience mild tooth sensitivity for a day or two after, but it can easily be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers (always consult your doctor).

Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?

No, it isn't. When performed by experienced practitioners like Dr. Perez, professional teeth whitening is both safe and effective. Overdoing teeth whitening treatments (having more than one or two per year) can be bad for your teeth as it doesn't allow time for new enamel to rebuild.

How much whiter will professional teeth whitening make my teeth?

Every smile is unique, but on average, most can expect to see their smile improve by up to 5 – 8 shades whiter.

How long is a teeth whitening treatment?

Different teeth whitening treatments take shorter or longer amounts of time, but a typical teeth whitening treatment at Fort Lauderdale Dental Studio takes about an hour.

How long will my teeth stay white?

Everything we eat and drink affects the brightness of our smile, so, unfortunately, the new whiter smile after a teeth whitening treatment isn't permanent. Most people can expect to see their results last 1 – 2 years or longer. If you feel like you need a touch-up, it is generally safe to have a professional teeth whitening treatment every 6 – 12 months or on the advice of Dr. Perez.
