One of the most commonly requested procedures at Vero Beach Art of Dentistry is teeth whitening. Not only is this performed as a standalone procedure but also in combination with prophylactic teeth cleaning and as part of a comprehensive treatment plan before restorations are made to match the preferred white you want for your smile. With in-office whitening we can whiten your teeth effectively in one convenient session.
Dr. Johnson Hagood stays abreast of advances in whitening systems and has selected Ultradent Opalescence Products for his patients, which are specially formulated for the removal of deep stains and to relieve teeth sensitivity after bleaching.
Certain food and drinks, tobacco usage, medications, age and other conditions affect the amount of stain on your teeth and how often treatment is required to maintain the whiteness you prefer. Some stains are internal to the tooth and cannot be removed by teeth whitening. These are called “intrinsic stains” and can be corrected with cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers.
Dr. Hagood and our hygienist will be happy to discuss the in-office whitening options with you, answer your questions about over-the-counter whitening products, and confirm whether you have intrinsic stains that Dr. Hagood can cover with cosmetic treatment.
Note that combining teeth whitening with your regular dental cleaning appointment is an efficient and lower cost way to have in-house whitening. Please let us know ahead of your appointment if you would like to combine the two.
Teeth Whitening with Ultradent Opalescence Products
Dr. Hagood helps patients with deeper enamel stains by using Ultradent Opalescence Products. This is a highly effective system for deep tooth whitening that rejuvenates tooth structure and can be used with sensitive teeth. This treatment involves two in-office sessions performed by a skilled clinician. During the first appointment, teeth are isolated, prepared for whitening, and then a whitening tray is used to seal the gel onto the teeth for two 20-minute sessions. During the second appointment the gel is applied for another 20 minutes. After your in-office deep bleaching treatment, you can use an at-home whitening system for touch up whitening.
