Teeth Whitening Treatment Overview

Teeth whitening is a safe, comfortable way to get a bright, white smile. Results and treatment time may vary depending on the level of staining and whitening desired. Crowns, bridges, fillings and veneers are not ways to whiten teeth. Therefore it is important that you speak with our dentist about options that provide effective results and are great for you. We recommend visiting our dentist for a pre-whitening consult and will be glad to help you schedule an appointment at your convenience. Call our office at 727-536-5787 to make an appointment today!

Take Home Trays

Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.

After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not suggested to use them for at least another day, after each application.

These whitening trays can be used several times to obtain the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case. Also, you can have them customize to you needs.

There are many teeth whitening methods, each containing a similar yet different process and outcome. Treatments will affect each individual differently, which is why we will recommend a proper consultation with our dentist prior to choosing the right option for you. Additionally, everyone’s current state of oral health is different, so certain treatments may not work for you. If you are looking to achieve a brighter smile, visit Family Dentistry of Largo in Largo, Florida, for effective and efficient teeth whitening services.
