Why Choose Nawrocki Dental of Cocoa Beach for Teeth Whitening?

What Causes Teeth to Change Colors?

There are a variety of reasons your teeth may be discolored, yellowed, or just downright dingy. Some of these include:

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

When preparing for teeth whitening treatment, you’ll have two appointments with Dr. Nawrocki. The first will include taking impressions of your teeth so your customized trays can be created. When you arrive for your second appointment, we’ll provide you with your new oral trays and instruct you on how to use them.

You’ll wear your trays together and use the professional, high-grade whitening solution we provide to you. Dr. Nawrocki will instruct you to wear the trays, with the whitening solution, for a specific amount of time (either half an hour or overnight depending on your individual case). Some sensitivity is normal, but you don’t have to worry about it lasting too long. Once the trays are removed, the sensitivity will start to dissipate.

After a few weeks of wear, you’ll see a new and improved smile that is brighter and whiter than before!

How Long Will Teeth Whitening Results Last?

If you are diligent in your treatment, you can expect your results to last for quite some time. You will be required to touch up your teeth every few years in order to maintain the results you originally achieved, so be sure to stay on top of your whitening treatments. If you want your results to last, limit or avoid the number of dark-colored foods and drinks you consume and stop smoking if you haven’t already.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Before you move forward with your teeth whitening treatment, you might have one last question on your mind: how much does it cost? That’s a great question, and one we will answer after learning all about your unique dental needs (including your smile goals) at your consultation. In the meantime, here’s some general information on the topic of the price of teeth whitening:

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

One of the biggest factors that will impact the cost of your teeth whitening treatment is how intense your dental discoloration is. It’s also important that we mention here something that many patients don’t consider: the health of their teeth and gums. If we find tooth decay or gum disease during your exam, we will need to intervene with the necessary restorative care first to ensure the final result is a beautiful and healthy smile.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

If you’ve been to your local pharmacy or grocery store recently, then you know that there is no shortage of whitening products available over the counter. Here’s how the price of those products compares to professional treatments:

  • Whitening toothpastes and strips: These products typically cost anywhere from $7 to $40, depending on where you shop.
  • Store-Bought Whitening Trays: A step up from the toothpastes and strips are OTC whitening trays, which usually cost around $100.
  • Take-Home Whitening Kits: This approach tends to cost a few hundred dollars and is unique because it comes with custom-made trays and professional whitening gel.
  • In-Office Whitening Treatments: Treatments conducted by a cosmetic dentist can cost anywhere from $400 to $800. It depends largely on the practice and the patient’s unique smile goals.

Inexpensive Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

After reading through the information on the prices of the different types of teeth whitening, you might be wondering why it’s worth investing in professional treatments. Well, there is more than just one reason! To start, professional whitening services are customized to you, taking into account both the cause of your discoloration and how bright you want your smile to be. Additionally, there aren’t any diluted whitening gels or one-size-fits-all strips; everything is personalized.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Since dental insurance doesn’t typically cover elective procedures, you might assume that teeth whitening is too expensive for your budget. However, we offer three financial solutions to help make the cost affordable: our loyalty plan, flexible financing, and special offers. We can provide you with further details at your consultation, or you can read the “New Patients” page on our website for additional information.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Many patients fear teeth whitening due to potential discomfort, but professional treatments are usually customized to minimize sensitivity. Dentists prioritize patient comfort, adjusting treatments for those prone to sensitivity. Spaced-out sessions, avoiding hot beverages, and using specialized toothpaste can further mitigate discomfort. Remember, proactive communication with your dental team is key to a comfortable experience.

How Can I Make My Teeth Whitening Results Last?

The longevity of whitening results hinges on diligent oral care. A consistent routine of brushing, flossing, and mouthwash is essential. Regular dental checkups prevent stains and catch issues early. Limiting dark foods and beverages, utilizing straws, and quitting smoking all contribute to sustained brightness. By committing to good habits, you can enjoy your radiant smile for years to come.

Does Teeth Whitening Work on Dental Crowns?

Unlike natural teeth, dental crowns cannot be whitened. Attempting to do so may damage the bond between the crown and tooth. However, maintaining good oral hygiene and lifestyle habits can prevent discoloration. If dissatisfaction arises, replacement is an option to align with your smile goals.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Teeth whitening isn't permanent; results vary from months to years. Longevity depends on oral care and lifestyle choices. Regular touch-up treatments, along with consistent hygiene practices, ensure a lasting bright smile. By staying proactive, you can maintain your dazzling white teeth for the long haul.
