Yellowed or stained teeth can make us embarrassed to smile in social situations and photos. Teeth whitening is an effective dentistry solution that can lift deep dental stains from teeth, resulting in a dazzling smile. See how Dr. Scott Azari of Lucie Dental in Port St. Lucie, FL, can help you achieve a vibrant and healthier-looking smile.
Though over-the-counter treatments like whitening toothpaste and strips can lift surface-level stains from teeth, professional teeth whitening treatments can effectively target deep dental stains, including those that are a result of:
Dentist-Directed Whitening Vs. Over-The-Counter Whitening
Professional, dentist-directed teeth whitening in Port St. Lucie comes with several key advantages, like:
With our dentist, you can achieve whiter teeth in about 90 minutes, though your desired shade may take a few treatments to attain. Teeth whitening can also be used as a touch-up treatment before special occasions.
Unlike at-home treatments you can buy from the store, professional teeth whitening can whiten your teeth an average of seven to eight shades. This is because the concentration of bleaching solution we use during in-office whitening is stronger.
Teeth that are a few shades whiter may be exactly what you need to feel confident enough to show off your smile. A whiter, brighter smile can help you navigate social situations and give presentations with ease.
Professional Opalescence™ teeth whitening at our office uses more effective and concentrated hydrogen peroxide formulas tailored to your teeth. Our dentist can answer questions, conduct treatment, and personalize your care.
Means Longer-Lasting Results
While buying a simple tube of whitening toothpaste may look cheaper, in many cases, it's actually less cost-effective, especially over time. That's because it uses weaker hydrogen peroxide bleaching formulas — so any results you do see will be less apparent.
Not to mention, you'll continually be spending money on something with less noticeable changes. Professional teeth whitening results, on the other hand, may remain brighter and more beautiful for around six months to two years. They can even last as long as three years, with proper maintenance. If you're excited to finally see longer-lasting, more apparent whitening results, our Port St. Lucie team can introduce you to Opalescence products. Contact us to learn more.
See For Yourself
Personalized dental care doesn't come right out of a box. Our dentist, Dr. Azari, can tailor treatment to your own unique needs, like decreasing the strength of our hydrogen peroxide bleaching solution to prevent tooth sensitivity.
We also offer specials and discounts on teeth whitening through our Lucie Dental Plans, which can help make your visit more affordable. Potential discounts can include a free consultation for new patients, as well as 25% off whitening. Current options and availability may vary.Request Consultation
At-Home Treatment To Work?
You can whiten your teeth in just one appointment with Opalescence, instead of spending weeks or months hoping your at-home bleaching strips or whitening toothpaste will provide you with results. We strive to offer the best Teeth Whitening Port St. Lucie has to offer.
Dr. Azari explains the importance of using ADA-approved teeth whitening products to achieve a whiter smile. Lucie Dental uses Opalescence™ professional teeth whitening, which uses a hydrogen peroxide solution to break up molecules that will stain your teeth. At our practice in Port St. Lucie Teeth whitening treatment can last up to six months or longer.
During your consultation for teeth whitening, Dr. Azari will determine your candidacy for treatment. Candidates include people who:
If you meet these requirements and want a brighter smile, we invite you to request a consultation with our dentist at Lucie Dental in Port St. Lucie, FL, where you can receive this cosmetic treatment.
At Our Dental Office
Lucie Dental in Port St. Lucie, FL, offers in-office Opalescence Teeth Whitening as a fast and effective way to enhance your smile. During your appointment, Dr. Azari will place a hydrogen peroxide solution on each tooth.
This bleaching solution is then activated by a light source and spreads through each tooth to break down discoloration and brighten the enamel. You can whiten in your teeth in just one appointment for this dentistry solution or attend several short sessions for more dramatic results.
Make Your Whiter Smile Last
After your hydrogen peroxide whitening session, you may wonder how you can maintain your dazzling results. Here are some simple things you can do:
An at-home oral hygiene routine that includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing can go a long way in keeping your smile bright.
Avoid pigmented and acidic foods and beverages that can stain teeth and cause them to become discolored.
Smoking and chewing tobacco products are likely to stain your teeth and give them an unsightly yellow tinge.
The results of your teeth whitening session will fade over time, but touch-up whitening sessions every six months can keep your smile bright.
Though our office may recommend this treatment for patients who have superficial stains and discoloration, teeth whitening treatments can't lift dark stains that occur deep within the dental tissue. Fortunately, these deep dental stains can be concealed with alternative treatments like dental bonding, veneers, and crowns.
Teeth whitening is considered cosmetic, which means it's not covered by insurance. Still, if you're bothered by darkened teeth, it can be a valuable investment in your self-confidence. That's why we strive to make bleaching treatment possible for you with:
We accept financing options like CareCredit®, GreenSky, and Alphaeon Credit, so you can pay for your teeth whitening in manageable payments.
