Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
There are many reasons teeth can become stained, including dark-colored beverages (i.e., coffee, tea, soda, berries, soy sauce, etc.), smoking, or simple wear and tear of your tooth enamel. While many of these are considered surface or extrinsic stains, others tend to develop deep below the surface and are referred to as intrinsic stains. These can be difficult if not impossible to remove without professional help.
Fortunately, Dr. Cohen and our team are here to provide the right solution that will help you to feel more confident in professional and social settings.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Apart from the over-the-counter whitening kits you can buy at the drug store, there are two types of teeth whitening you and your dentist will discuss: take-home or in-office treatment. You will find that professional whitening services are far more beneficial and effective than store-bought options. Not only is it tailored to your unique needs, but the products used are stronger than do-it-yourself solutions.
If you are looking to whiten your smile on your own time, your cosmetic dentist in St. Johns will be happy to supply you with customized whitening trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. Unlike store-bought options that often produce uneven and lackluster results because of the one-size-fits-all style and diluted bleaching solution, those provided by our team are guaranteed to fit according to your smile, effectively covering every tooth for an even whitening experience. Also, the bleaching gel is much stronger and will produce effective results in as little as two weeks.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you would rather have a professional take the lead on whitening your smile, Dr. Cohen and our team will be happy to complete the process in about an hour. Using safe and effective ingredients and techniques, you can count on us to quickly administer treatment that produces remarkable results. In-office teeth whitening is an ideal solution if you have a special event coming up and can be completed on your lunch break, making it a truly convenient cosmetic treatment.
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
Choosing teeth whitening for your smile is one of the best investments you can make. Once you’ve completed your treatment; however, it’s important that you keep a few tips in mind to extend your results as long as possible. These can include:

- Eating white dairy products that are designed to strengthen tooth enamel and keep teeth looking bright
- Maintaining good oral hygiene at home by brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly
- Visiting with your dentist every six months for a regular checkup and cleaning
