What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

While there are many drug store teeth whitening products to choose from,  finding a dental office that offers teeth whitening will produce a better, safer, long-lasting result. At Excellence in Dentistry,  we offer Opalescence professional teeth whitening treatment with custom-made, take-home bleaching trays.  Years of yellowing caused by smoking or stains from foods like coffee or red wine can be erased with professional teeth whitening. Opalescence at-home whitening treatment provides many benefits over other whitening techniques including:

Is professional teeth whitening better than store bought? 

The professional teeth whitening available from your dentist at Excellence in Dentistry on Commercial Blvd. works better, produces faster results, and gives you whiter and brighter teeth than any product you could buy at a drug store.  The Opalescence whitening system offers different concentrations of bleaching agent (as well as different flavors).  You can decide how and when to wear your custom trays.  Select a higher concentration of bleaching agent and wear them 15-30 minutes per day or select a lower concentration of bleaching agent and wear your trays overnight.  If you experience sensitivity, you can discontinue treatment for several days before resuming.

These professional teeth whitening products are only available through your dentist because they are strong and effective enough that the Food and Drug Administration requires professional guidance for their safe use. If you have tried the less effective teeth whitening products offered at your local drug store without getting the desired result, call Excellence in Dentistry at 954-928-1666. Following a professional dental cleaning with your dental hygienist, Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle will assess your oral health, explain our whitening system, and create a custom-fit whitening tray for you.
