questions about teeth whiteningServing areas of DeBary, Orange City, and Deltona FL

If you are looking for a simple solution to improving the look of your smile, then professional teeth whitening in Orange City may be the solution for you. Teeth whitening treatments offered by cosmetic dentist Dr. Terry Soule provides you with long lasting results, with reduced sensitivity than compared to store-bought varieties. Here are answers to commonly asked questions regarding teeth whitening.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes! Teeth whitening, when using professional strength gel as directed by your dentist, is safe for patients ages 14-70+. Our safe yet effective whitening solution yields results that are more profound and that last longer than what you will get by using store-bought whitening treatments.

What makes professional teeth whitening better?

Teeth whitening products are available everywhere you look in the oral hygiene aisles of stores. Whitening strips or pens are the most popular over-the-counter teeth whitening products. While these products can produce noticeable results, your teeth will not get nearly as white as they could. Plus, results from these store-bought varieties of teeth whitening agents will not last as long either. A box of whitening strips may seem affordable upfront since it will only set you back about $40 a box, but in the long run, you will end up spending more money trying to achieve more profound, longer lasting results. Save time and money by opting for professional teeth whitening in DeBary at Terry Soule, DDS, instead!

How much do professional teeth whitening treatments cost?

To determine the cost of your treatment, we invite you to discuss your smile needs with Dr. Soule during a consultation. You may require only one round of whitening treatment, while others may require two or more before desired results are achieved. Touchups are usually necessary to maintain your white teeth.

How long will my teeth stay white?

While there really is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, certain factors will contribute to the longevity of your results.

  • Diet – What you eat will matter when it comes to the color of your teeth. Foods like berries, marinara, and beverages such as coffee and wine tend to stain teeth. If you avoid these or consume in moderation, your whitening results will last longer. At the very least, be sure to rinse out your mouth with water, or better yet, brush your teeth after consuming these things.
  • Oral Hygiene – Keep your teeth clean by brushing twice a day, and flossing daily. This removes plaque buildup that collects stains. Also, be sure to have your teeth cleaned twice a year at the dentist’s office to remove stuck on tartar buildup, and stains. While the results of your teeth whitening will last quite a while, occasional touchups may be necessary.
  • Avoid Tobacco – Tobacco use in any form will cause your teeth to stain at a more rapid rate than not using tobacco at all. It is best for your teeth, and your overall health, to avoid tobacco products.
