What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental service that’s always in high demand. This service at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida reduces stains on your teeth while also lightening and brightening them. 

The products Dental Implant Specialists of Florida uses during your teeth whitening treatments contain strong bleaching products like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Many people opt to get teeth whitening in the dental office because a single hour-long procedure gives them immediate results.

Another option for professional whitening is custom trays to take home. Your dentist gives you a strong bleaching product and teaches you to put it in the trays before placing the trays on your teeth for a set amount of time. The time it takes to bleach your teeth with this kind of home whitening varies based on the strength of the whitening product. 

Why might I need teeth whitening?

Tooth stains are an unavoidable fact of life. While you might be careful to avoid staining your teeth by using straws, avoiding smoking, and limiting highly pigmented foods and beverages, some stains appear because of factors that aren’t within your control. 

The team at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida might recommend teeth whitening to improve stains and tooth discoloration that come from:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Wine
  • Berries
  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • Accidents and trauma
  • Aging
  • Certain medications and medical conditions

Some stains are much easier to remove with teeth whitening than others. For stains and discoloration that don’t respond to the professional whitening process, you might consider crowns, veneers, or other restorative treatments. 

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening has surprising benefits for both the appearance of your smile and your health. It’s one of the simplest ways to brighten your smile beyond a standard cleaning, and it isn’t as costly as restorative treatments like veneers and crowns. 

Other reasons to consider teeth whitening at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida include:

  • Quick results
  • Long-lasting results
  • A confidence boost
  • Little or no maintenance beyond your normal oral hygiene routine
  • Improved oral hygiene

You can expect your teeth whitening results to last for a year or longer, depending on your ability to keep up with twice-a-day brushing and flossing as well as cleanings every six months. You should also avoid or limit stain-causing foods and substances like wine, coffee, and tobacco.
