Looking for a professional teeth whitening dentist in Aventura? 

Aventura Bright Smiles is here to provide you with teeth whitening treatment using the most current technologies.

A brilliant, attractive smile conveys confidence and vitality. As we age, our teeth naturally darken. One of the most popular ways to enhance your smile and improve your appearance is teeth whitening.

With whitening, we can bleach the enamel to help remove discolorations and stains from teeth. Research and clinical studies show that under the supervision of your dentist, chair-side teeth whitening with carbamide peroxide and/or hydrogen peroxide is safe for both teeth and gums. You can choose from in-office whitening or take-home kits, which will gradually brighten your smile over time.

Why Teeth Stain
Tooth stains fall into two categories – extrinsic and intrinsic stains. The extrinsic (external) stains only impact the surface of the teeth. Intrinsic stains are present inside the teeth and are harder to remove.

You can develop teeth staining from a variety of causes including:

  • Beverages such as coffee, teas, and colas
  • Aging
  • Medication (antibiotic) staining
  • Trauma
  • Disease
  • Genetics
  • Tobacco
  • Excessive fluoride
  • Insufficient oral hygiene
  • Nerve degeneration

Taking the First Step
During your initial visit, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums. At that time, the doctor will explain the recommendations and discuss your options. If you choose to begin immediately, you can relax and listen to music while we remove stains and transform your smile from blah to brilliant.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment to discuss teeth whitening options, contact us today or call our Aventura dental office at 305-932-1214.


FAQs about Teeth Whitening

 

Does teeth whitening work?
Professional teeth whitening can safely and effectively remove surface stains and renew your smile. Good oral hygiene, regular dental visits, and avoidance of products that stain will keep your smile looking fantastic.

What is the difference between professional teeth whitening and the kits I can by from the drug store?
Drug store whitening kits don’t have the strength that professional grade whitening provides. Also, these whitening kits can irritate gums and soft tissue because they aren’t customized for your teeth.

What if teeth whitening won’t work?
In some cases, especially where deep intrinsic stains exist, teeth whitening may not be the best option. We will review your case and can recommend other alternatives – like all-ceramic cosmetic crowns.

Is teeth whitening safe?
Many dentists consider teeth bleaching the safest cosmetic procedure available today.

What about side effects?
Some patients develop mild sensitivity after whitening. Time and toothpaste that alleviates this sensation will help minimize any discomfort.
