Whitening that works without damaging your teeth in Lakewood Ranch, FL

Before after teeth whitening

Few dental treatments elevate the appearance of your smile as quickly, easily, and dramatically as teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening in Lakewood Ranch, FL at the office of Kind Smiles Dental Health gets results, and it does so in a way that is safe, gentle to oral tissues, convenient, and fast. Dr. Allison Konick is also pleased to offer options to lift stains and lighten teeth that are suited to your one-of-a-kind smile, budget, lifestyle, and goals.

Professional teeth whitening

Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits and products often do not contain the ingredients that are proven to break up stains on the teeth. If products contain peroxide, they are frequently insufficiently concentrated to make a noticeable difference in the color of your teeth.

The teeth whitening methods available at the dentist’s office contain clinically proven peroxide-based ingredients. These solutions are formulated to be stronger than those products that you can buy at the store or online. Additionally, at Kind Smiles Dental Health, you benefit from the oversight of our dentist, Dr. Konick. She will plan treatment precisely to your needs. Adjusting factors such as the concentration of the whitening gel and the length of time the gel comes in contact with your teeth minimize tooth sensitivity and other risks. They also support natural-looking results and a level of whitening that aligns with your specific smile goals.

Another benefit of partnering with dentists for your teeth whitening is that we assure your mouth is healthy before moving forward with treatment. Whitening formulations can exacerbate existing oral conditions. It is also important to note that existing restorations do not respond to whitening. We are glad to discuss options for treatment should you have crowns or other types of dental restorations.

The process

We welcome you to schedule an in-office whitening session where you can get “the most bang for your buck.”  Using a higher concentration of whitening gel applied by a dental professional, your teeth can be shades whiter in just over an hour!  Alternatively, we offer the use of impressions or molds of your mouth to create trays or appliances that fit like a glove. Custom trays support comfort and even, natural-looking results. We will show you how to fill the trays with whitening gel. You will also be instructed on how to wear the trays. These application trays are worn for a specific number of minutes each day, and a specified period.For instance, patients may get a many shades whiter smile after about two weeks of daily, 30-minute wear time.

Alternate treatments

No single treatment whitens all patients’ teeth. We can discuss options to whiten deep, intrinsic internal stains, or other types of stubborn discoloration. These options may include dental bonding, internal bleaching,  and porcelain veneers to disguise stains that resist whitening methods.
