Tooth Whitening

Florida: Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of options for tooth whitening, including custom designed at-home whitening kits, in-office tooth whitening using light-activated products, and procedures such as porcelain veneers for deep or stubborn stains and yellowed teeth. The sections below describe some of these tooth whitening options.

Professional At-Home Tooth Whitening

Professional at-home tooth whitening kits consist of a set of dental trays custom designed for your teeth, which you use at home with a prescription-strength tooth whitening gel to whiten your teeth several shades over the course of a few weeks.

Dr. Williams offers the popular ZOOM system for custom at-home tooth whitening.

In-Office (chairside) Tooth Whitening

Your cosmetic dentist can whiten your teeth considerably in a single office visit using a prescription strength gel activated by a concentrated light source.

Other Options for Tooth Whitening

In addition to the traditional tooth whitening procedures described above, procedures such as tooth bonding and dental veneers can also be used to create whiter teeth. These procedures are frequently useful for patients with stubborn stains and yellowing, or those who have other issues such as cracking, chipping, or slight crookedness.

Over-The-Counter Tooth Whitening

With the increasing popularity of over-the-counter tooth whitening procedures, many patients want to know what advantages professional tooth whitening offers them.

While over-the-counter tooth whitening products can offer short-term results in many cases, there are a number of drawbacks and limitations to the products.

OTC tooth whitening products are limited to whitening teeth stained by external sources, such as staining from food, beverages, and smoking. They have no effect on teeth that have become yellowed due to other causes.

OTC tooth whitening kits tend to be ill-fitting, as they are not fitted to your mouth. As such, they can cause excess irritation to the gums and lips.
