Your teeth naturally become yellow or stained over time by food, drinks, and extracurricular habits. While this process is normal, a discolored smile can indicate poor oral hygiene and also impact your overall confidence. That’s why at Davie Advanced Dentistry, our team of dentists offer professional teeth whitening services to help you achieve a renewed set of pearly whites that will dramatically improve your smile and social confidence.

While brushing your teeth and flossing is important, they may not be enough to prevent discoloration. Over time, you may notice your smile slowly losing its shine. Luckily, professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure designed to instantly brighten your teeth in just one simple appointment. Unlike store-bought whitening kits, our dental products are designed to effectively break down stubborn year-old stains in a short amount of time.
If you notice any changes in your smile’s appearance, it may be time to seek professional teeth whitening treatment. Our Davie office is dedicated to helping you achieve whatever cosmetic goals you have for your smile.
A discolored smile can cause you to appear older and lower your self-confidence. That’s why having a brighter set of teeth can enhance your appearance and oral health. Some of the benefits of having professional teeth whitening include:
Teeth whitening can be performed in just one visit to our Davie practice.
When you first arrive, your dentist will evaluate your oral health to ensure that the whitening process will be right for your smile. Once deemed an ideal candidate, our staff will prepare your teeth by protecting your gums and soft tissue before applying any whitening gel.
Brightening your smile is a quick and painless process that can be completed in just under an hour. After your gums have been protected, your dentist will apply a whitening gel that will start to dissolve any stains that are on your teeth and instantly brighten your smile. A special light source will also be used to make the process faster. After some time has passed, your dentist will clean the whitening gel from your mouth and your new smile will then be good to go.
Professional teeth whitening is considered the safest and best-recommended method for brightening your smile by several shades. While there are other techniques that can be used, our whitening process removes stains that are beneath your teeth’s surface.
Most patients are ideal candidates for teeth whitening. As long as you have a healthy set of teeth and strong gum tissue, your smile can be instantly brightened by our whitening gel. During your appointment at our Davie practice, your dentist will examine your oral health to determine whether you are a candidate for our whitening treatment.
If you have chronically sensitive teeth, an oral health condition such as periodontal (gum) disease, or oral cancer, it may be best to avoid our whitening treatment so that your condition doesn’t worsen. Luckily, we offer restorative care to help improve your teeth’s health.
There aren’t any risks associated with professional teeth whitening treatment. As long as an experienced dentist like Dr. Abbo is conducting your procedure, in-office whitening sessions are safe, fast, and virtually painless. While your teeth may experience some sensitivity afterwards, this usually subsides shortly after the procedure has been completed.
Professional whitening treatment can last up to three years with proper oral health maintenance. There are several ways to keep your teeth stain-free, including:
After your whitening treatment, our staff will provide you with a list of aftercare instructions to follow so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of a whiter smile for years to come.
While your teeth naturally become yellow and discolored over time, certain foods and beverages can further accelerate the process. This includes coffee, wine, tea, fruit juice, tomato-based sauces, curry, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce. Our knowledgeable staff can provide you with a list of what foods and drinks to avoid or have in moderation as well as answer any questions you may have.
Most insurance agencies won’t cover the cost of professional teeth whitening due to the procedure being considered not medically necessary. Still, our practice recommends that you contact your provider to get a better understanding of your policy.
