Teeth Whitening (In-Office Treatments and Take-Home Trays) – Cocoa, FL*

27 Services ( View All )

Overview

At a time when appearance is everything, we can understand why the color of your teeth is a big cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Advanced Dental Care in Cocoa, FL can help you deal with this concern with professional-strength teeth whitening. While there are plethoras of store-bought whitening choices, we offer a product that has proven superior to some over-the-counter treatments currently on the market. Our whitening services can whiten your teeth by several shades, helping you to maintain your beautiful results for much longer than alternative products. Leading dentist Dr. Dieter Burr uses professional-strength whitening solutions that really work, reaching beneath the surface of your teeth to treat deep stains, rather than consumer-level solutions which merely scratch the surface (quite literally), leaving a brighter color of yellow at best.

Best Candidates

When considering the pros and cons of professional vs. over-the-counter whitening solutions you should think about what you're attempting to do. If your teeth have been white your whole life and have just recently began to become discolored, an over-the-counter kit might produce temporary results. However, if your teeth have deeper stains, either in terms of tooth depth or shade, you may be a great candidate for professional-grade teeth whitening at Advanced Dental Care. If you need home touch-ups, Dr. Burr might also provide take-home customized trays that are compatible with our whitening products for maintenance.  

What To Expect

What to expect for your teeth whitening treatments depends upon the process deemed best for you by Dr. Burr. As our practice offers a few treatments for successful and quality teeth whitening, the procedure chosen for you will be determined after a consultation where your aesthetic goals and lifestyle will be discussed and taken into account. In most cases, your in-office teeth whitening treatments will be completed in under an hour, through the application of a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with the assistance of a lighting system which quickly cures and whitens the teeth several shades. Our at-home kits are equally effective but may provide more subtle results over a period of weeks and months.  

Follow-Up

Following either session, you may experience some additional sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages, but this typically subsides within a couple days. As with all dental procedures, regular dental exams with Dr. Burr are highly recommended and critical to maintaining results. These exams will check for everything from gum and soft tissue health as well as the state of each tooth. Once the main procedure is finished, we generally suggest coming back for touch-ups a couple times a year, when professional cleanings can also be performed for your oral health. Keep in mind, that just because your teeth are white doesn't necessarily mean that they are healthy. That's why regular exams are still important. You will also receive careful instructions regarding what foods should and shouldn't be consumed in the immediate future, like red wine and coffee.

Insurance Coverage

Because teeth whitening is considered elective and cosmetic in nature, it is not commonly covered by dental insurance providers. Nonetheless, our talented billing team can obtain and evaluate your dental benefits to determine if any portion of your dental appointment can be covered by your insurance to lower the cost of your treatment. If you do not carry dental insurance, we will be happy to speak with you regarding our payment options as well as the possibility of obtaining low-interest medical financing.
