Although teeth whitening can be done at home with over-the-counter products such as whitening toothpaste, teeth whitening kits, and other products, the results are often inconsistent, shorter-lived, and not as effective as professional teeth whitening.

Treatment Options Types of Stains

Your teeth whitening options depend on the types of stains and the desired results. Intrinsic stains are inside the tooth enamel and may not be caused by environmental factors

These stains may be caused by some prescription medications, extreme exposure to fluoride thin or damaged enamel, and genetics. Since they form below the enamel, they cannot be removed with teeth whitening treatments.

Extrinsic stains refer to stains caused by environmental factors. They can be caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, and red wine since they form over the enamel, they can be removed with teeth whitening treatments.

Regular professional teeth whitening can improve overall oral hygiene. Teeth whitening performed by an experienced dentist can boost the health and strength of your teeth. Dr. David C. Ashley DMD & Associates ensures that patients receive the highest quality of oral health care.

 Simple procedure and long-lasting results

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure that can be completed in one session. The results are long-lasting when followed with good oral hygiene practices.

Patients experience a little minor sensitivity soon after teeth whitening is entirely normal but are only temporary and is usually gone within three days.

It’s recommended to temporarily avoid colored foods such as red wine, coffee, and tea that can stain tooth enamel following treatment. Dr. David C. Ashley DMD & Associates offers safe and effective teeth whitening solutions in Bradenton that reflect self-confident smiles by completely removing discoloration on teeth.
