Whether you’re seeking a brighter, whiter smile or want to enhance the look of your natural teeth, our Sarasota Teeth Whitening specialist at Go2Dental can help. Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to remove surface stains and make your teeth appear brighter.
The first step in any teeth cleaning is an oral examination. This helps your hygienist find any plaque, tartar or cavities that you may not have noticed at home.
Next, your hygienist will use a scaler to get rid of any plaque that’s stuck to your teeth or gums. They will also scrape off any tartar from your mouth. It is normal to hear a bit of scraping while your teeth are being cleaned, but it is not painful.
When your teeth are clean and free of tartar and plaque, your dentist can recommend a more effective and safer whitening treatment. They will also be able to help you avoid future dental issues by maintaining good oral hygiene at home and visiting the dentist for regular cleanings.
Once your teeth are clean and free of stains, our hygienist will give you a professional whitening treatment using a bleaching agent that is much stronger than what can be bought over-the-counter. This will get rid of stains that have been caused by smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and other foods and drinks that have been staining your teeth for years.
Teeth whitening is also great for improving the health of your teeth and gums. It prevents the build-up of tartar that leads to periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth loss and serious oral health problems if left untreated.
There are many different ways to whiten your teeth, but it’s important to choose a method that will work best for you. Choosing a whitening method that is effective, easy to use and affordable is the best way to get the brighter, whiter smile you’ve always wanted!
Before your appointment, we will take an impression of your teeth and make custom-fitted trays. These trays will hold the whitening solution securely and won’t leak. They are also comfortable and convenient for you to wear.
The whitening procedure is usually done in our office or at your home, depending on what is most convenient for you. You’ll receive a custom-fitted tray, the whitening gel and instructions on how to use it, as well as an oral exam.
Once your whitening treatment is complete, you will be given a fluoride rinse that will help protect your teeth from decay. This will keep your teeth and gums healthy for several months after your whitening treatment is completed.
Having a whiter smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem. It can make you more attractive and friendly to people, which can open doors in your life.
Your dentist can also use professional whitening to brighten your smile before any other cosmetic procedures, like veneers or crowns. This will make your teeth look even whiter than if you did it yourself at home.
