TEETH WHITENING IN DELRAY BEACH
Teeth are likely to turn yellow or darken over time. The natural aging process affects the enamel of our teeth causing them to lose that white, bright natural color. Teeth whitening can change that.
For some, the contact with substances such as coffee or tea, alcohol or tobacco makes things worse, causing more severe stains.
Fortunately, there are effective and affordable whitening systems that remove those stains giving your teeth a lighter, whiter shade. Some very effective teeth bleaching treatments available at our office will help you revitalize that dull, darkened smile.
We offer two options to help you get the bright smile you always wanted: In-Office Teeth Whitening and Take-Home Teeth Whitening
TYPES OF TEETH WHITENING
IN-OFFICE TEETH WHITENING
The most effective whitening treatment is an in-office, dentist applied bleaching. This procedure (usually done after a deep teeth and gum cleaning) will whiten your smile and give your teeth a lighter shade. The in-office treatment guarantees amazing and immediate results and it only takes a few steps:
- The whitening gel is applied on your tooth surface.
- The gel is chemically activated, so it instantly starts acting on your tooth enamel to whiten your teeth.
- The total treatment takes about an hour.
- While you wait for the gel to process you can relax and enjoy the comfortable and stress-free environment of our office.
- Finally, you will be able to compare the color of your teeth to the initial color: you will notice your smile much whiter and brighter!
- Optional: You can also be sent home with custom-fitted bleaching trays in order to maintain that bright smile in between checkups.
The in-office whitening treatment will give you amazing and more long lasting results.
TAKE-HOME TEETH WHITENING
Using a professional teeth whitening product is much safer and effective than trying over-the-counter products. With the take-home whitening custom fitted trays we also help our patients achieve a sparkling smile. This teeth bleaching treatment is quite affordable, but it takes a bit longer. It will typically work very well for those with minor stains (thought it may prove less effective if your teeth are severely stained)
The whitening take-home kit generally includes:
- The whitening trays (made out of impressions of your natural teeth)
- The gel (usually used in 10 applications)
You will have to wear the trays for about 20 minutes a day and within a week or two you will get similar results. The take-home system may be right for you if you prefer to get the treatment in the comfort of your home and choose the right moment for your teeth to get whitened.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Does In-Office Teeth Whitening Work?
In-Office Teeth Whitening offers amazing whitening results in about an hour. This product is a chemically activated gel. Once the gel is applied on your teeth, the whitening process begins.
How Often Do I Need to Have My Teeth Whitened?
It depends. The effects of teeth whitening are not everlasting. However, if you lead a healthy lifestyle, chances are you will have your teeth bleaching last longer. This means limiting the exposure of your teeth to substances such as tea, coffee, cigarettes or wine.
Why Do you Recommend a Cleaning Before Whitening?
It is harder for the whitening to make its way into the tooth surface if there is plaque or tartar. So a professional dental cleaning before applying the whitening gel is highly advised to prepare the whole surface of your teeth.
Can I Have my Teeth Whitened if I Have Previous Dental Work?
It’s important to know that teeth whitening does not work on existing restorations such as crowns, veneers, bonding, fillings or bridges. So after the treatment, the color of your natural teeth might be different from these restorations.
Is the Teeth Bleaching Procedure Covered by Insurance?
Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not covered by dental insurance, as it is a purely cosmetic and elective procedure.
