Your smile says a lot about you, and a smile that has been dulled by aging or staining issues from dark foods, beverages or tobacco use can leave you feeling self-conscious in social situations. The source and depth of the stains on your teeth, will help to determine which the whitening products or procedures will be required to meet your whitening goals.

You should always consult with Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry before using a new whitening product. Our highly trained dental professionals have the training and experience required to help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.

Deeply stained teeth usually cannot be brightened by the whitening products offered in stores. Here at Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry we offer a dental teeth-whitening procedure, that is the most effective and safest way to whiten deeply stained teeth.

At the start of the dental bleaching procedure, your gums will be protected by a special gel or a rubber dam. Then a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel is poured into trays that are inserted into your mouth. How long you need to hold the tray in place will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.

If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, please call Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry at 813-251-5740 to schedule an appointment.
