Staining and discoloration can be removed from your smile through teeth whitening treatments. There are different levels of teeth whitening methods, so our dentist can help you determine which one would be the right choice for your smile. A white and bright smile is closer than you think, so make an appointment to get the results you are looking for!

In office whitening treatments can provide the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. Teeth bleaching can lift discoloration by about eight shades in as little as one hour. West Palm Beach teeth whitening treatments can help reverse years of discoloration and stains. Shades of discoloration may range from yellow to brown, so whitening results may vary. Multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve desired results. Some shades can not be lifted with West Palm Beach teeth whitening treatments, like grey or even lavender. Those shades may indicate a larger oral health issue, and alternative treatments may be necessary. 

At home teeth whitening would be a great option for anyone with mild tooth discoloration. This can also be used as a treatment to follow in-office tooth bleaching. After professional bleaching has been completed, at-home whitening kits can help reach that extra level of white. Home whitening kits may be enough on their own for anyone with just slight discoloration. This is also a great option for anyone who experiences tooth sensitivity, which could be worsened with in-office teeth whitening.

A sensitive smile may not be the best candidate for professional teeth whitening. West Palm Beach teeth whitening may cause some pain or discomfort for a few days following treatment. If you are worried about sensitivity due to teeth whitening, try switching to sensitive toothpaste for a few days following your appointment. Fluoride treatments can also help to strengthen enamel following whitening treatment. Some dental health issues like gum disease or dental decay may contribute to tooth discoloration. We recommend visiting our office for a dental cleaning and examination before any professional whitening treatments can be considered.

To help combat daily staining, try using a whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpaste won’t do much to lift years of discoloration, but it can be highly effective to fight off daily tooth discoloration. Maintaining a great dental hygiene routine will also help keep your smile white & bright. Brush twice per day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing before bed, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash will help keep your pearly whites shining! Some mouthwashes can also help whiten your smile, so ask our team for a recommendation!
