What are my options for whitening teeth?

Do you want to remove stains from red wine, coffee, or some of your favorite foods? At North Tampa Dentistry, we offer professional teeth whitening to erase stubborn stains from teeth and improve the luster of your smile. 

Stain-Causing Foods and Drinks

Acidic and sugary foods and drinks can erode enamel and set the stage for dental stains. Vibrant foods and beverages can stain teeth, such as:

  • Dark fruits and juices (e.g., blueberries, blackberries, cherries, pomegranates) 
  • Red wine 
  • Soda, cola, and carbonated drinks 
  • Coffee and black tea 
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Ketchup 
  • Sports drinks
  • Candy and sweets

Teeth Whitening Options

Three primary teeth whitening options are over-the-counter (OTC) products, chairside whitening, and custom-made whitening trays. 

#1 OTC products

Over-the-counter products are one-size-fits-all and result in sub-par whitening because the bleaching agent has a low concentration. 

#2 Chairside whitening

Chairside whitening is usually an hour-long visit during which a dentist uses a high concentration whitening gel to brighten your teeth. This process will give you an instant whitening effect, but only to a certain degree. Chairside whitening is the most expensive option, and the results vary from person to person. 

#3 Custom whitening trays

The most common and reliable option is custom-made whitening trays. These custom trays are made from molds of your teeth and given to you with a whitening gel that fits your treatment goals.

We agree with countless dental professionals that custom whitening trays are the most cost-effective way to whiten your teeth and brighten your smile!
