Tooth Whitening Florence, SC

Are you tired of yellowed, darkened, and stained teeth? Do you want a whiter and brighter smile? Palmetto Smiles offers teeth whitening treatment in Florence, South Carolina. Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about teeth whitening below:

What is in-office teeth whitening?

Dr. Brian Sang and his dental team offer in-office teeth whitening using Opalescence Boost. Treatment begins when a resin is applied to the gum line to protect the gums against sensitivity. A mouth support and tongue shield are then inserted into the mouth to keep soft tissues protected during treatment. Whitening gel is applied and remains on teeth for about 20 minutes. The gel is removed and the process can then be repeated multiple times. Patients are given the opportunity to see their teeth and then decide if they would like whiter results after each 20-minute interval.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Opalescence Boost is a quick treatment that offers better results in less time than other whitening treatments that are typically sold in drug stores. Professional in-office teeth whitening gels are safe and are designed to reduce tooth sensitivity. Touch-ups are also used to help maintain the aesthetics of patient’s smiles. Those who undergo professional whitening treatment are also more likely to keep up a good dental routine so that their smile is brighter and healthier.

How long does teeth whitening last?

The permanence of teeth whitening depends on a patient’s maintenance on their smile. After treatment, patients should avoid coffee, soda, tea, and other drinks that stain teeth. Patients may also need occasional touch-ups to maintain the brightness of their smile.

Is teeth whitening painful?

Teeth whitening is typically a painless treatment. The Opalescence Boost teeth whitening treatment is specially designed to reduce tooth sensitivity and keep the soft tissues in the mouth protected.

Can teeth whitening damage teeth?

No, professional teeth whitening uses safe materials to brighten and whiten teeth.
