Teeth whitening lets you eliminate teeth stains and smile proudly once again. Stains can happen due to certain foods and drinks, because of tobacco use, or simply as part of the natural aging process. Stained or discolored teeth may make you feel self-conscious about your smile.
With teeth whitening at Gainesville Dentistry Co., Dr. Feldman can eliminate these stains and restore the natural brightness of your teeth. You’ll look younger, feel more confident, and be proud of your smile once again. Get in touch now to schedule a teeth whitening appointment with your dentist in Gainesville, FL.
If you want fast results, we are proud to offer in-office Zoom Whitening. During your procedure, our team will clean your teeth and protect your gums and oral tissues. Then we will use powerful chemical whiteners and a LED blue light to brighten your smile up to 5-10 shades in just a single appointment. This makes it ideal for special occasions like weddings and graduations.
We also offer take-home teeth whitening. Our team will use our intraoral scanner to take mess-free impressions of your teeth, then work with a dental lab to make custom-fitted whitening trays. You'll receive your trays along with a set of professional-grade whitening products. We will give you instructions about how to use them, and then you’ll be able to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
The chemicals used in teeth whitening can make your teeth feel more sensitive for a few days after treatment. This is harmless, and will go away in a short period of time. We only use the best products, which contain desensitizing agents to help minimize this issue. If you’re concerned about teeth sensitivity, you can discuss this with Dr. Feldman before your treatment, and he can take steps to ensure your comfort.
If you choose in-office or take-home whitening from Gainesville Dentistry Co., you won’t have to worry about gum irritation. To protect your gums, we use special protectants for in-office whitening, and custom-built trays for take-home whitening. This ensures you won’t have to worry about gum sensitivity during treatment. Proper use is key to preventing gum irritation from overfilling the trays, and we will educate you on how to effectively use your new whitening tools.
Over-whitening is only an issue if you’re using store-bought whiteners on your own. If you overuse whitening products, you could end up damaging your enamel. This will never happen with professional teeth whitening from Dr. Feldman, which is another great reason to whiten your teeth with the help of a professional.
Brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day helps keep your smile looking bright. You can also incorporate ADA-accepted whitening toothpaste and mouthwash into your routine to help prevent stains. You should also see Dr. Feldman and the team at Gainesville Dentistry Co. for a teeth cleaning and checkup at least every six months.
Changing your diet and habits can also help. You should quit smoking or using oral tobacco, and cutting back on tea, coffee, wine, and other staining drinks can help you maintain your bright smile. Drinking these beverages through a straw can also help minimize the risk of future stains.
