What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process that lightens your teeth by removing stains and discoloration. It’s a safe, fast, and effective way to brighten your smile without downtime. At Naples Dental and Wellness Center, Dr. Pinkhasov uses the most advanced whitening solutions and techniques to dramatically enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence. 

Why is in-office whitening better than home whitening?

In-office whitening solutions are more concentrated than over-the-counter (OTC) options. Carbamide or hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient in most whitening products. In-office treatments include higher concentrations that can effectively brighten your smile in a single session. 

Dr. Pinkhasov uses his skill as a cosmetic dentist to ensure the proper technique and minimize the risk of errors or inconsistent results that may occur with at-home whitening kits.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

The teeth whitening solutions that Dr. Pinkhasov minimize sensitivity to ensure a comfortable experience. During the procedure, he also uses special barriers and gels to protect your gums, lips, and other dental tissues. Choosing an experienced dentist to whiten teeth is the safest way to prevent pain and ensure beautiful results.

I’m getting teeth whitening. What can I expect?

How Dr. Pinkhasov performs teeth whitening depends on the type you choose. There are many laser-assisted and take-home tray options to boost your smile’s appearance.

In-office whitening typically involves placing barriers on your lips and gums before applying the whitening solution directly to your teeth. Dr. Pinkhasov can activate the solution with a laser or LED light. He may repeat the process until you reach your desired shade. The process usually takes one hour or less.

Take-home trays are custom-made to fit the contours of your teeth. You apply a small drop of whitening gel to the trays and wear them daily until you achieve your desired shade.

How long does teeth whitening last?

Teeth whitening results typically last at least six months, but taking proper care of your teeth can keep them whiter for up to a year or longer. You can extend your results by:

  • Brushing and flossing twice a day
  • Visiting for teeth cleanings every six months
  • Avoiding tooth-staining foods and drinks (red wine, coffee, soy sauce, etc.)
  • Wearing a nightguard if you have bruxism (teeth grinding)

Once your results fade, Dr. Pinkhasov can touch up your smile with maintenance treatments. Call Naples Dental and Wellness Center today or schedule an appointment online to learn more about teeth whitening.
