Dark, discolored, and stained teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. When your pearly whites aren’t as white as you’d like, you might find yourself hiding your teeth when you laugh or avoiding your full smile in photos. Tooth whitening can undo the stains and discoloration caused by tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, berries, tomato sauce, certain medications, and even the natural aging process and genetics. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products may subtly brighten your stained teeth, but most people don’t get the results they want from these methods.
To get the best teeth whitening results, you need the good stuff. Professional tooth whitening services from our skilled cosmetic dentists Drs. Spencer and Cohlmia are the best option to get the whitest, brightest smile with lasting results. At Riverside Dental, we offer affordable Zoom Whitening in Jacksonville, FL. In-office Zoom Whitening is a highly effective whitening system that uses professional-grade, enamel-safe agents to get your teeth several shades lighter in just one visit. We also offer take-home tooth whitening trays which can be used for your initial whitening, or to maintain your in-office results over time.
The clinical-strength teeth whitening agents we utilize at Riverside Dental are carefully formulated for maximum effect and superior enamel safety. Because Zoom Whitening doesn’t rely on abrasives to scrape away stains, it’s not damaging to the enamel like many over-the-counter options. In-office teeth whitening delivers dramatic results in as little as an hour. Most patients report that the process is very comfortable, and any sensitivity you experience usually resolves within a day or so, unlike the chronic sensitivity triggered by other methods. Likewise, patients who prefer the slow-and-stead approach of take-home trays see amazing results. While whitening trays take a bit longer (about a week to two weeks), it’s a great option for patients who want more control over their final shade.
Tooth whitening in a dental office setting will give you better results with less risk. However, that’s not the only benefit of professional whitening! We’ll examine your teeth before starting your whitening process and let you know if we see any issues that could affect your results. For example, if you have fillings or crowns that show when you smile, you need to be aware that these restorations won’t whiten the way enamel does. Visible restorations could end up looking mismatched if whitening isn’t done right!
Teeth whitening is often a great first step in many restorative dental plans, too! If you need fillings, crowns, dental implants, or any other treatments that will show in your smile zone beside natural teeth, you may want to whiten first so that we can match your new restorations to your bright smile.
Your dental team here at Riverside Dental will help you choose the best teeth whitening option to complement your natural smile and monitor your treatment for optimal results. After tooth whitening treatment, you’ll enjoy lasting brightness by maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, visiting us for regular cleanings, and minimizing those staining habits wherever possible. You’ll also be able to touch up your shade with customized trays that come with your in-office and take-home treatment so you can keep flashing that dazzling white smile!
