Teeth Whitening Tampa, FL

One of the most frequently requested cosmetic dental treatments in our dentist office in Oldsmar is teeth whitening. Our clinical strength in-office and take-home teeth whitening options will brighten and rejuvenate your smile. Our professional teeth-whitening agents will safely remove extrinsic stains on the surface of your tooth enamel, leaving you with a beautiful shining smile!

Because teeth whitening products have become more sophisticated and there are multiple methods and products available to dentists, we clinically try different ones as they are introduced and offer the most effective, safe, and affordable options for our patients.

What Causes Teeth Staining?

Extrinsic Staining

This is the most common type of staining. It develops over time on the outer surface of the dental enamel. The changes are so gradual that you may not be aware of them until they become significant, even when you look in the mirror. This type of discoloration is usually the result of certain dark foods and beverages like berries, red wine, tea, coffee, and colas. If you use tobacco, it will also discolor your teeth. Genetics and other environmental factors can contribute as well. The good news is that a peroxide-based whitening gel will remove these stains.

Intrinsic Staining

This type of staining lies below the top layers of your tooth enamel. A tooth can become dark deep inside due to injury, tetracycline antibiotics, or excess fluoride consumption during enamel formation. Unfortunately, teeth whitening cannot reach intrinsic staining. Dr. Tran does offer cosmetic dental treatments that can address this problem in the form of dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or porcelain crowns, depending on your circumstances.

What Whitening Treatments Do You Offer?

Teeth whitening uses peroxide gel as a whitening agent. During the teeth whitening process, oxygen molecules in the gel penetrate dental enamel, breaking apart the bonds between stains. At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening solutions that are effective and safe.

In-office teeth whitening

is professionally supervised and administered by our experienced staff. This whitening method will work faster than take-home whitening trays. During the in-office whitening procedure, we take the time to first protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces before beginning. We then administer the whitening solution and allow it to work on the surface of your teeth, leaving you with a brilliant, white smile in only one visit!

Custom take-home whitening kits

will enable you to do touch-ups in the comfort of your own home. Our clinical strength gels are highly effective and a proven way to whiten your teeth. If you choose this treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth and use them to craft custom whitening trays. Made of smooth plastic, the trays will be very comfortable, and they will fit securely around your teeth. We will show you the proper way to fill the trays with the provided whitening gel and you will be instructed to wear the trays for about 30 minutes a day over a period of a few days. The time it takes to bleach your teeth to the whiteness you prefer will depend on the severity of their discoloration. The instructions you receive may vary, depending on tooth sensitivity and the condition of your tooth enamel.

Highly Effective Whitening Treatment-Even for Sensitive Teeth

If you are hesitant about tooth whitening due to concerns about tooth sensitivity, we can help you understand all your options. The at-home teeth whitening solutions we provide makes whitening possible even for individuals with sensitive teeth. Afterwards, we may recommend fluoride treatment to ease and lessen lingering teeth sensitivity.

Whitening your teeth according to Dr. Tran's instructions will be the safest and most comfortable way to proceed. If you have significantly damaged tooth enamel, Dr. Tran can help you achieve the white smile you want with alternative treatment.
