Teeth Whitening in Bonita Springs
Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, it's a fact that some yellowing or discoloration will occur as you age. But you don't have to live with a dull smile that makes you feel self-conscious. After all, healthy, white teeth are important to everyone – who doesn't want to look their youthful best?
Professional teeth whitening is one of the quickest, most affordable methods for significantly improving your smile and enhancing your self-confidence. At Bonita Grande Dental, we offer professional take-home teeth whitening kits that are convenient, easy to use, and produce beautiful results. Using our customized kits, you can transform dull-looking teeth to a bright, vibrant white in just two weeks!
Why Your Teeth Discolor
Have you noticed that, as you age, it gets more and more difficult to keep your teeth bright and white? If so, you’re not alone. It’s a fact of life that during the aging process, our bodies and our health change. Even if you’re following the exact same brushing and flossing routine you always have, you will begin to see that your efforts no longer produce the desired effect of maintaining a bright, youthful smile.
As part of the aging process, your once bright enamel slowly erodes and exposes more of the dentin beneath the surface. Dentin is naturally a dark yellow color and causes the teeth to appear dull and yellow compared to healthy new teeth.
Consuming stain-producing food and drink like blueberries, colas, coffee, tea, and red wine also takes a toll on the whiteness of your smile. Tobacco products are the worst culprits – they can produce severe staining that’s difficult to remove, even with professional teeth whitening.
Enjoy the Convenience of At-Home Whitening
At Bonita Grande Dental, we believe the best possible whitening results can be obtained with professional at-home whitening treatments. Compared to a single in-office treatment, we find our at-home whitening kits to be more effective because you use the trays every day over a period of two weeks. This gives the whitening more time to do a thorough job of lifting stains from your teeth.
If you’ve ever tried over-the-counter whitening kits, you know that the results they produce are minimal at best. As a dentist, Dr. Gostigian can prescribe whitening gel that has a much higher concentration of carbamide peroxide, the active ingredient that lifts stains from your teeth. This professional formulation provides better results than you'll ever see with store-bought whiteners.
As part of your kit, you’ll also receive a completely customized whitening tray, created using impressions of your teeth. This provides even coverage to all your teeth, producing consistent whitening results. We’ll instruct you how to use your kit when you receive your customized whitening trays. Usually we have you wear the trays for about 20 to 30 minutes a day for two weeks, then enjoy your stunning new smile!
Please Call to Arrange an Appointment
We always recommend a professional dental cleaning before whitening so that you can achieve the best possible results. In addition, we strongly encourage proper regular dental visits, oral hygiene, and good eating habits to get the most out of your whitening procedure.
