Teeth Whitening Treatments for a Brighter Smile
Most people’s diets include the daily consumption of foods and drinks that stain their teeth like coffee, sodas, wine, tea and even fruits like strawberries and blackberries. The acids in foods and beverages break down your teeth's enamel, leaving it more vulnerable to stains. Therefore, even with the most diligent oral care, you can still have discolored teeth, which can impact your confidence. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening has become more accessible. At St. Augustine Family Dentistry, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening kits so you can chose the option that suits your budget and lifestyle.
Take Home Trays
Take-home trays give you the option of whitening your teeth from the comfort of your own home and at whatever time is most convenient for you. Our dentist will provide you with custom-made teeth whitening trays that will fit comfortably over your teeth. You'll also receive professional teeth whitening gel, which you'll insert into the trays before placing them over your teeth. The amount of time you leave the trays in place will vary depending on how discolored your teeth are. Most patients wear their teeth whitening trays for as little as 15 minutes per day to an hour or more. After the recommended amount of time is over, you'll remove the trays and rinse them thoroughly and brush your teeth. Most patients begin to see results within 2 weeks, but your individual results may vary. To find out if take-home trays are the right teeth whitening solution for your, contact our St. Augustine, Florida, office today at 904-829-2082 to schedule a consultation.
