The Many Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’re thinking about whitening your teeth, consider the many benefits of professional teeth whitening. Discover how the Zoom whitening system can make your smile up to 8 shades brighter without damaging your enamel.

If you’ve stopped smiling because you’re embarrassed by stained or discolored teeth, it’s time to consider the benefits of professional teeth whitening.

Here at Allure Dental of Hollywood in Hollywood, Florida, Vadim Valdman, DDS, and our team offer safe and highly effective in-office teeth whitening treatments to give you a whiter, brighter smile. We also offer clinical-strength, do-it-yourself whitening trays if you’d like to improve the appearance of your smile from the comfort of your own home. 

Read on as we explore the many advantages of professional teeth whitening, and find out how it can give you something to smile about.

How professional teeth whitening works

To help you get the best results, we use the Zoom teeth whitening system. During your treatment, Dr. Valdman applies a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth. He then accelerates the whitening process with a blue LED light.

The whitening gel penetrates every layer of enamel to reduce the yellowing and staining that results over the years from your diet or habits (i.e. tobacco use or red wine consumption). The Zoom System can also effectively address age-related yellowing that occurs as your natural tooth enamel becomes thinner.

In addition to in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Valdman offers custom take-home whitening trays that are easy to use. The trays contain a clinical-strength whitening gel that boosts the whiteness and brightness of your smile without causing bothersome tooth sensitivity. 

Candidates for professional teeth whitening

You should schedule a teeth whitening consultation at Allure Dental of Hollywood when discolored enamel makes you feel unhappy with your appearance.

Typically, people who have good oral health and are free of infection are good candidates for professional whitening treatments. Dr. Valdman performs a comprehensive oral exam before recommending whitening services.

You may not be a candidate for tooth whitening if your tooth discoloration is caused by the use of certain medications or a traumatic tooth injury. Whitening doesn’t work on dental work like crowns, fillings, or veneers, either. 

The benefits of professional teeth whitening

One of the biggest benefits of the professional teeth whitening services available at Allure Dental of Hollywood is the amazing results Dr. Valdman can achieve.

The professional whitening gel he uses can brighten your teeth by up to 8 shades in just a few treatments. You simply can’t achieve the same results with over-the-counter whiteners.

Professional teeth whitening is also safest when done in a dental office. Dr. Valdman takes great care to protect your lips, gums, and teeth during the whitening process. He also reduces your risk of experiencing increased enamel sensitivity, a problem that can occur with harsh whitening agents and less careful techniques.

To optimize your results, we consider the true, unsullied shade of your teeth to ensure your results are as natural-looking as possible; you can expect a bright, luminous smile — not a fluorescent one. 

Maintaining your teeth whitening results in the long-term

To get the most out of your professional teeth whitening sessions, you should take care of your teeth to prevent new stains from developing.

We recommend that you limit your intake of dark-colored juices and wine when possible, or use a straw to avoid staining. Brush your twice teeth daily, especially after consuming foods and beverages that can cause discoloration.

Dr. Valdman may also recommend a safe and effective whitening toothpaste to use to keep your smile bright. Be sure to floss regularly to remove debris from in between your teeth that can lead to staining, cavities, and other oral health issues.

Keeping up with your regular dental exams and cleanings is also key for avoiding the kind of plaque buildup that can set the stage for future enamel discoloration.
