Professional in office whitening treatments are by far the most effective way to whiten your smile. This treatment can lift discoloration by up to 10 shades in as little as one hour. Our Boynton Beach cosmetic dentist will administer a bleaching gel onto your teeth to help lighten and lift stains. A UV laser will shine on your teeth to help speed up the whitening process and enhance results. This process is totally safe for your smile, but it should only be done on healthy smiles. Anyone who is interested in teeth whitening treatment will need to have a check-up to clear any signs of gum disease or decay before whitening can be considered. In office whitening treatments may also not be the best choice for anyone who has a highly sensitive smile. Tooth sensitivity is common after teeth whitening, so it may be painful for anyone with a naturally sensitive smile. To find out if professional whitening treatments would be right for your smile, schedule a visit with our Boynton Beach cosmetic dentist.

Home whitening kits are another excellent option for anyone looking to improve the color of their smile. Whitening kits give patients the flexibility to whiten their smile from the comfort of home. This option is also more affordable than in office teeth whitening. Home whitening kits gradually lift discoloration over the course of two weeks. This option is also able to be paired with in office whitening treatments to really get patients the best results possible. Home whitening options can lift discoloration by about 3-5 shades over the course of two weeks. These results are more subtle than teeth bleaching, so it would be best for smiles with only mild discoloration. Whitening kits can also be used every few months, while teeth whitening at our office can be done on a yearly basis.

There are some easy ways that you can prevent future tooth discoloration from occurring. Our Boynton Beach cosmetic dentist recommends brushing twice per day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and rinsing with mouthwash. You can also make an effort to choose dental hygiene products with whitening properties. Choose a toothpaste and mouthwash that has whitening properties to help combat daily staining. Make sure your products also contain fluoride to help strengthen enamel and prevent permanent staining on your teeth. Regular dental cleanings can also help to prevent serious tooth discoloration due to plaque and tartar. Visit our office every six months to have your teeth properly cleaned by a professional.
