Tooth discoloration is an embarrassing problem for millions of people all over the U.S. In fact, Americans spend approximately $1.4 billion annually on over-the-counter applications in an effort to lift stains and whiten yellow teeth at home. Unfortunately, drugstore whitening products are time-consuming and may produce uneven or mediocre results. No one wants to spend two weeks wearing messy creams or strips only to whiten the teeth by 2 or 3 shades.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Jacksonville, Florida
At Lane Avenue Family Dentistry, we want to help our patients bypass the hassle and frustration of low concentration whitening agents. That is why we offer professional chairside and at-home tooth whitening to our Jacksonville area patients who desire a safer and more effective way of whitening discolored teeth. Our treatments are administered under professional supervision for safer and longer-lasting results.
Pro whitening services are never ‘box’ treatments. Instead, they are uniquely individualized to each patient’s whitening goals. Our practice offers two types of professional whitening in Jacksonville, Florida – Zoom in-office whitening and take-home prescription strength whitening trays. Both include formulations and applications specifically designed to protect the gums and enamel while achieving a brilliantly white smile. Though results vary from person to person, it is not uncommon for our patients to whiten their teeth by as much as 8 shades in under an hour.
Which Type of Tooth Whitening is Right for You?
Zoom is our in-office whitening service designed for patients who want dramatic results in as little time as possible. A highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel is painted onto the teeth and activated using a UV light. Every 15 minutes, the gel is removed and a fresh coat reapplied, usually for a total of three sessions.
Another option – take home whitening trays – are designed for patients who want the privacy of at-home whitening or who wish to maintain their Zoom whitening results with periodic whitening ‘touch-ups’. At home whitening trays are customized to the patient’s needs and contain a prescription-strength formulation that is capable of producing results similar to those of an office whitening treatment.
