At Gainesville Family Dentistry we offer Tooth Whitening services.
In most supervised cases, teeth bleaching can effectively whiten and brighten the color of teeth for up to five years, without softening or weakening the teeth and gum line. Most patients choose dentist-supervised at-home bleaching, which is more economical and, in most cases, provides the same results.
At-home bleaching involves using a custom-made mouth trays that can be worn comfortably while you are awake or sleeping. The mouth tray is so thin that you should even be able to talk and work while wearing it. Most bleaching systems recommend bleaching your teeth from one to two hours a day, these usually take 3 to 6 weeks to complete and work best on patients with sensitive teeth.
Gum irritation and increased tooth sensitivity are the most common side effects of teeth bleaching. However, each individual may experience side effects differently.
