Dr. Jim Lassiter offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to patients in Jay, FL. Professional tooth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that brightens teeth, improves tooth health, and is long-lasting. Whitening teeth also reverses the effects of aging on teeth and can help improve your confidence. Brightening your smile not only improves the aesthetics of teeth but can also benefit your oral health. Having a brighter smile often motivates people to maintain their smile with brushing and flossing as well as regular dental checkups.
What Causes Discolored Teeth?
Darkened, stained, and yellowed teeth can be caused by a variety of factors such as age, smoking habits, staining foods and drinks, and certain medications. These conditions may wear down teeth, showing the dark dentin underneath. They may also stain or discolor teeth deeply. However, these effects may be reversed with the correct treatment.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that doesn’t damage teeth or gums. Bleaching agents that are crafted with tooth sensitivity in mind are painless while providing long-lasting results. Over the counter, tooth whitening treatment that is found in supermarkets and drugstores is usually not effective enough to whiten teeth. Professional teeth whitening overseen by a dentist can lighten teeth by multiple shades.

Finally, the patient receives a take-home gel and instructions to keep the smile bright for long-lasting results.
