Stained or discolored teeth can stop you from smiling freely and confidently in social settings. Professional teeth whitening treatments from the office of Pompano Family Dental can help you address surface stains and discolorations in your smile and can restore the shiny bright color of your teeth.
The most common causes of surface discolorations on the teeth are:
- Use of tobacco
- Drinking dark colored beverages such as coffee, soda and wine
- Poor oral hygiene
- The natural aging process
Professional whitening solutions are much safer and more effective than over the counter whitening products. They are performed under the supervision of dental experts and are guaranteed to give you quick results with a simple and fast procedure. Prior to your whitening treatment, we will perform an evaluation of your dental health to ensure that whitening is a suitable treatment for you and to make sure that the stains and discolorations are not caused by an internal infection or decay such as nerve or pulp death.
We offer the following professional whitening systems for patients at our office:
Opalescence whitening treatment makes use of a professional strength whitening gel which contains potassium nitrate and peroxide. The potassium nitrate helps in reduce post-treatment sensitivity. The whitening gel is filled in custom trays and placed over the teeth, where it reacts with the stains to remove them.
LUMIBRITE whitening treatment is specifically designed to provide visible changes to the color of your teeth with minimum amount of sensitivity. The treatment combines whitening gel with Sapphire Plasma Arc Curing and Whitening Light. The gel is strong enough that it can work on its own, even without the light. The light does not emit harmful UV rays. LUMIBRITE also makes a desensitizing gel which helps to prevent sensitivity after the procedure.
