What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that whitens tooth surfaces. Teeth will not be sparkling white, but they will be somewhat whiter without compromising the integrity of the tooth's surface. Teeth whitening results are often temporary, lasting from a few months to up to three years. However, the duration of these effects varies depending on the individual.

What are Various Types of Tooth Discoloration?

For effective teeth whitening, selecting the right method is crucial, tailored to your specific type of staining. Understanding whether your stains are intrinsic or extrinsic will guide you in choosing the most suitable whitening approach.

Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains originate within the enamel of your teeth. These stains may develop even before your teeth emerge during childhood. Factors such as antibiotic usage, excessive fluoride exposure, natural thinning of enamel with age, and, intriguingly, genetic predispositions can contribute to intrinsic staining, as per findings from a 2014 study.

Extrinsic Stains

On the other hand, extrinsic stains occur on the surface of your teeth, resulting from exposure to external factors that cause discoloration. Common culprits include coffee, artificial food colorings, and tobacco use. Interestingly, similar to intrinsic stains, extrinsic discoloration may also be associated with antibiotic use, as indicated in the research.

Teeth Whitening Options in Jacksonville, FL

At Dental Arts of Florida, we understand that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to teeth whitening. We offer various treatment options to cater to your specific needs and goals. Here are some of the most popular choices:

In-Office Teeth Whitening

When it comes to teeth whitening, your dentist offers a fast track to a brighter smile. Unlike at-home kits, professional whitening treatments utilize significantly stronger bleaching solutions, ensuring more effective results. Additionally, dentists can access advanced tools such as heat, light, or a combination of both, which accelerate and enhance the whitening process.

Experience the most dramatic transformation in just a few in-office visits, typically lasting between 30 to 60 minutes each. With this approach, teeth can brighten by three to eight shades, revitalizing your smile with remarkable speed and efficiency. For those seeking immediate results, some dentists offer techniques that can achieve significant whitening in a single 2-hour appointment.

At Home Teeth Whitening

Home teeth whitening options abound, providing a variety of choices to brighten your smile without a visit to the dentist. Here are some popular methods:

  • Tooth Whitening Strips and Gels: These peroxide-based products are applied directly to the teeth using a brush or thin strip. Typically, they require once or twice daily application for 10 to 14 days. Results can lighten your teeth by a shade or two, lasting four months or more.
  • Tray-Based Teeth Bleaching Systems: This method requires filling a mouthguard-like tray with a peroxide-based whitening gel or paste. The tray is then placed over the teeth for one to several hours daily, spanning up to four weeks. Tray-based systems can be purchased over the counter or custom-fitted by your dentist.
  • Tooth Whitening Toothpaste: While all toothpastes aid in stain removal due to their mild abrasiveness, whitening toothpastes go a step further. They contain chemicals or polishing agents designed to scrub away stains without using bleaching agents. These toothpastes are affordable and can brighten teeth by approximately one shade. Some may contain peroxides, but their brief contact with the teeth limits their whitening effectiveness.
  • Whitening Rinses: These hydrogen peroxide-containing products are swished around the mouth for 60 seconds twice a day. While they may only produce a subtle whitening effect, consistent use can make teeth appear slightly brighter.
  • Whitening Chewing Gums: Chewable whitening gums prevent stains after consuming tobacco, coffee, or tea. While they won't provide significant whitening on their own, they can help maintain the brightness of your smile compared to other whitening treatments.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost in Jacksonville, FL?

Longing for a radiant, pearly-white smile is a common desire, yet the financial aspect of teeth whitening often remains unclear. The various types of teeth whitening procedures are mentioned below, along with how much they will affect your pocket.

Professional In-Office Whitening

Professional whitening performed by a dentist is the gold standard for individuals seeking quick and effective results. Prices for in-office teeth whitening vary typically between $500 and $1,000 for each treatment. The cost includes using powerful bleaching chemicals with laser activation, assuring quick and impressive results.

Dentist-Prescribed Take-Home Kits

Dentist-prescribed take-home kits are designed for convenience and efficacy. They provide professional-grade whitening from the comfort of your own home. Expect to spend between $100 and $400 on such a kit, and results take weeks to months.

Over-the-Counter Products

Over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments available at pharmacies are a less expensive option for those on a tight budget. Strips, gels, and pens are commonly priced between $5 and $50. However, it is important to note that while some solutions take a milder approach, their efficacy may result in less obvious outcomes.

Teeth Whitening Aftercare

Maintaining the brilliant whiteness of your teeth after whitening may be difficult, but it does not have to be. Here are some easy suggestions to help you maintain your dazzling smile for the long term, particularly within the first 48 hours following your whitening session:

  • Avoid Staining Food and Drinks: Tea and coffee can discolor your teeth.
  • Avoid dark sauces like BBQ and soy sauce, as they can also cause stains.
  • Limit Acidic Foods: Acidic foods like lemons, oranges, and citrus fruits can erode enamel and dim a white smile.
  • Skip Dark Chocolate: Avoid dark chocolate since its high pigment content might discolor teeth.
  • Brush Twice Daily: To keep your teeth dazzling, brush them twice daily using whitening toothpaste.
  • Floss Frequently: Include flossing in your regular dental care practice to eliminate plaque and avoid discoloration between teeth.
  • Rinse After Eating: To avoid stains, properly rinse your mouth with water after eating or drinking.
  • Don't neglect your monthly dental check-ups; expert cleanings may help you keep your smile.
  • Consider Quitting Smoking: If you smoke, quitting can help you keep your freshly bright smile and improve overall dental health.

FAQs

Opting for in-office bleaching offers the fastest method for achieving whiter teeth. The whitening solution is directly applied to the teeth during an in-office bleaching session. This procedure may involve using heat, a specialized light, or a laser with the whitening product. Remarkable results become evident after just a single 30- to 60-minute treatment.

If you're seeking a dramatic transformation in the color of your teeth, professional-grade whitening is essential for achieving remarkable results. Your cosmetic dentist offers treatments designed to deeply penetrate the enamel, effectively eliminating years of stains using potent bleaching agents.

Excessive harshness in teeth whitening techniques or chemicals might cause harm to your teeth. This danger is mostly caused by two factors: dryness of the teeth and loss of essential nutrients such as calcium.
