Teeth Whitening and Bleaching

Teeth whitening (aka teeth bleaching) has become a very popular cosmetic dental procedure to improve the color of one's own natural teeth.

Tray whitening (or tray bleaching) is the most popular technique to whiten or bleach one's teeth. Custom fitting trays are fabricated to precisely in our Orlando office to precisely fit your teeth. These trays are worn for an hour or two during the day or overnight depending on the type and strength of whitening or bleaching gel used. As the whitening gel is absorbed into natural tooth structure, the teeth gradually become whiter.

Advantages of teeth whitening as opposed to cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers:
  • With teeth whitening, treatment is not invasive; no natural tooth structure is abraded or removed.
  • Teeth bleaching is less expensive.
  • With teeth whitening, nothing is permanently bonded to your teeth.
  • Teeth whitening requires on average, only minor touch-up treatments every couple years
Disadvantages of teeth whitening compared to cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers:
  • With teeth bleaching, results are dependent on several applications of bleaching gel.
  • With teeth bleaching, it isn't possible to predict exactly to what shade your natural teeth will bleach.
  • With teeth whitening/bleaching, you can harm your teeth by not following your Orlando dentist's recommendations and over bleaching.
  • With teeth whitening, very dark or tetracycline-stained teeth cannot always be effectively whitened.
