Teeth WhiteningFind out about in-office teeth whitening and whether it’s right for your smile needs.

Are you looking to get rid of dental stains and say hello to a gorgeous new smile? If so, teeth whitening is a wonderful way to get the smile you deserve. If whitening toothpastes and rinses haven’t worked for you, then it might be time to turn to professional teeth whitening in Orlando; however, find out for yourself whether this is a great option for you.

What does professional teeth whitening entail?

When you opt for in-office teeth whitening be prepared for the entire process to take about 45 minutes. We will first apply a highly concentrated peroxide gel on your teeth and then direct a laser to activate the whitening ingredients within the gel. After the first 15 minutes are up, we will remove the gel and reapply a fresh, new layer. We’ll then use the laser to activate the gel once more. One whitening treatment usually involves three, 15-minute sessions. This, however, will depend on the type of results you are looking for and the severity of your stains.

What are the benefits of in-office teeth whitening?

In-office teeth whitening does boast some fantastic advantages for our patients, including a whiter smile in only 45 minutes. These are results you can quickly see in just one session. Sometimes one session is all that’s needed.

While your results won’t last forever, if you maintain good oral hygiene and restrict certain stain-producing foods and drinks from your diet, you can keep your smile looking whiter for up to two years. Subsequent whitening sessions are also available to help keep up with your results.

Do I need to get in-office whitening in order to get a brighter smile?

You don’t need in-office whitening to get a whiter smile. You can also opt for our take-home whitening or even decide to go the least expensive route and find whitening products at your local drugstore. Keep in mind that if you are looking to get a significantly whiter smile right away, however, then seeing your Orlando dentist for in-office whitening will most likely give you the results you want when you want them. However, our at-home whitening kit also offers patients whiter results over the course of a couple weeks. A lot just depends on how severe your stains are and how fast you’re looking to obtain results.
