Check out more information about our professional teeth whitening offered by reading more below.

Avoid Discoloration

Some foods and drinks are incredibly harmful to the color of your teeth. Specifically, any dark liquids cause tooth discoloration. Beverages and liquids like coffee, tea, red wine, curry, balsamic vinegar, berries, soda, and red sauce cause gradual discoloration of your smile. The best way to avoid yellowing your smile is by avoiding foods and drinks that stain your enamel. If you consume something that stains your teeth, either swish water through your teeth or brush your teeth soon after.

About the Process

Teeth whitening is a great option for almost every smile. The process of getting teeth whitening treatment is simple and brightens your smile several shades in as little as an hour. Our cosmetic dentist in West Palm Beach applies a concentrated hydrogen-peroxide gel to the surface of your teeth. We use ultraviolet light to activate the bleaching agent which then lifts discoloration by about eight shades. Teeth usually continue to whiten for a few hours after treatment is completed.

Who Would Be a Good Candidate?

Almost every smile is a good candidate for teeth whitening. Our West Palm Beach cosmetic dentist whitens almost any smile through professional teeth whitening. Yellow or brown discoloration can be improved through professional whitening. However, there are some instances where tooth whitening isn’t the best option to improve someone’s smile.

If your teeth have a lavender or grey hue, you may require alternative cosmetic dental treatment. This type of discoloration means that your tooth is dying or experiencing decay. Patients with a history of poor oral health and habitual smokers also may not benefit from teeth whitening. If your smile suffers from severe dental decay or gum disease, you’ll need additional treatments performed prior to teeth whitening.
