Teeth Whitening in Sarasota, FL
At the office of Deborah Simpkins, DMD, we offer all the restorative and cosmetic treatments needed to rejuvenate the health and appearance of your smile.
But sometimes all that’s necessary to restore your youthful, fresh appearance is a simple procedure like professional teeth whitening.
If you are concerned about the whiteness of your teeth, you’re not alone. Even in your late 20s and 30s, you have probably started to notice that your teeth are losing their youthful brightness and that consuming staining foods and beverages hastens the process.
As you age, this process continues, and you may be left with a dull smile that you’re too embarrassed to show off.
How Professional Whitening Can Help
Professional teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment for a good reason. It is the fastest, most affordable way to restore the youthful brightness of your smile and refresh your overall appearance.
We see many patients who have been frustrated by over-the-counter whitening products. They invest time and money with the hope that these products will produce dramatic results only to be disappointed.
Professional teeth whitening is superior to store-bought treatments because it uses higher quality professional strength ingredients, and your whitening process will be supervised by Dr. Deborah Simpkins. Whether you choose in-office power whitening or a customized take-home kit, you will spend a lot less time, energy, and money achieving the smile you want.
Customized Take-Home Whitening
If you have tried over-the-counter whitening products, you have probably been disappointed by the results. There are a couple of reasons why you don't see the bright smile you had hoped for.
First, the percentage of peroxide in store-bought whitening products is very low, allowing them to be safely used by a wide variety of people. Professional teeth whiteners are much stronger because you use them under the supervision of a dental professional.
Another problem is that over-the-counter kits come with a generic boil-and-bite whitening tray that does not provide uniform coverage.
At our Sarasota dental office, we design your tray using impressions of your teeth. In a couple of days, you will receive a customized whitening tray that fits your own mouth perfectly. The close fit allows for complete coverage and also helps prevent the whitening gel from seeping out and irritating sensitive gum tissue.
Dr. Simpkins will give you precise instructions on how to use the trays, but generally speaking, we recommend wearing them 20 to 30 minutes a day for about two weeks.
Please Call to Arrange an Appointment
Every teeth whitening treatment begins with a professional dental cleaning to ensure that your teeth are free of plaque and tartar. This leaves a clean surface for the brightest, most consistent whitening results.
