Teeth Whitening in Oviedo, Florida

What Is Teeth Whitening?

If you are interested in whiter teeth, professional teeth whitening in Oviedo may be what you are looking for. Teeth whitening uses chemicals called “peroxides” to remove tooth stains. These volatile chemicals react to the presence of stains on your enamel, snapping the chemical bonds that hold stains in place and “bleaching” your teeth. The result is a bright, beautiful, and natural smile. If you are a patient with stained teeth in Oviedo, Dr. Leidy Riano Galeano is here to help. Contact us today to schedule a cosmetic consultation with your Oviedo dentist.

How long will my results last?

How can I make my results last longer?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for keeping your smile bright and healthy, so make sure you brush twice a day and floss once a day. Come to Mint32 Dental for a dental cleaning every six months, too.

Is sensitivity normal after teeth whitening?

Yes. Most patients experience minor sensitivity, which wears off a few days after their treatment. If you know that you have naturally-sensitive teeth, tell Dr. Riano. She will adjust your treatment to keep you comfortable if you are experiencing tooth sensitivity.

Am I able to whiten after certain procedures like root canals?

Absolutely! Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile, even after certain dental procedures like root canals. However, it is important to wait until after your root canal treatment is complete and any necessary restorations, such as dental crowns, have been placed. This allows for proper healing and ensures the best results from your teeth whitening treatment. We recommend consulting with your dentist to determine the ideal timing for teeth whitening after a root canal or any other dental procedure.

How much will teeth whitening cost?

The cost of teeth whitening can vary depending on various factors, including the type of whitening treatment you choose and the extent of discoloration you wish to address. At Mint32 Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening options that are tailored to your specific needs and budget.

Our in-office teeth whitening treatments provide immediate and noticeable results. The cost of this treatment typically ranges from $200 to $500, depending on the complexity of the case and the desired level of whitening.

For those who prefer the convenience of whitening their teeth at home, we also offer take-home whitening kits. These kits are custom-made to fit your teeth and include professional-grade whitening gel. The cost of take-home whitening kits usually falls between $100 and $300.

During your initial consultation, our dental team will assess your oral health and discuss your goals to provide you with an accurate estimate of the cost of your teeth whitening treatment. We also offer flexible payment options and financing plans to help make your dream smile more affordable.

If I smoke, will I be able to whiten my yellow teeth?

Yes, you can still whiten your teeth even if you smoke. Smoking is a known cause of tooth discoloration, as the tar and nicotine in tobacco can stain the enamel, turning your teeth yellow or brown. However, professional teeth whitening treatments can effectively remove these stains and restore the natural brightness of your smile.

It is important to note that while teeth whitening can significantly improve the appearance of tobacco-stained teeth, it is essential to address the underlying cause of discoloration. Quitting smoking or reducing your tobacco use can help maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment and improve your overall oral health.

At Mint32 Dental, we are committed to helping you achieve a brighter, healthier smile. Our experienced dental team will assess your unique situation and recommend the most suitable teeth whitening treatment for you. We will also provide guidance on lifestyle changes and oral hygiene practices to help you maintain your newly whitened smile for years to come.
