Teeth Whitening Orlando
With the desire for a whiter, brighter smile being a priority amongst just about everyone, teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental treatments around. However, with so many options it is difficult to find the right solution for each individual. A consultation with Venetian Pointe Dentistry in Orlando, Florida should be the first step to begin your teeth-whitening journey. Here, we can go through all of the options and see which is best for your unique situation.
Teeth whitening methods
As mentioned, there are several methods for whitening one’s teeth. Here are the most popular methods from least to most effective.
Whitening toothpaste and mouthwash: The least effective method for whitening is the most common due to it also being the least costly. Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes use mild abrasives to combat surface stains, but do not actually whiten the color of the teeth themselves. These can often lead to sensitivity with patients and have short lasting results.
Paint-on teeth whiteners: Another option is paint-on whitening. This method utilizes a gel that is painted onto the tooth using a small brush or applicator. This gel hardens into a film, coating the teeth for a temporary whitening solution that eventually dissolves in the mouth.
Tray whitening: Tray whitening is a professional whitening that bleaches the teeth using trays and a whitening gel that you can get through your dentist at Venetian Pointe Dentistry in Orlando, Florida. This is included with in-office whitening, and makes it so you can maximize the effectiveness of your in-office treatment. A whitening gel is distributed into custom-fitted trays that snugly fit over your teeth. Hydroxyl radicals whiten stained teeth as the peroxide-based gel breaks down.
The benefit of tray whitening versus whitening strips is that the trays encompass the entire mouth and therefore all your teeth are whitened, not just the ones covered by the strips. The custom nature of the trays also can provide additional comfort.
Tray whitening generally takes between 10 and 14 days, with some results occurring after only 3 to 5 days.
In-office teeth whitening: In-office whitening takes about 90 minutes and can be done utilizing the Sapphire system at Venetian Pointe Dentistry. Like other methods, a whitening gel is applied to the surface of your teeth. A light device then interacts with the whitening agent to reveal a whiter, brighter smile. A lot of people don’t want to fuss with strips or deal with sensitivity often associated with whitening toothpastes. In-office whitening is an easy and quick way to deliver results directly from the first day. Our favorite thing about in-office whitening is that “wow” moment when our patient sees their teeth after their whitening visit is completed!

Sapphire Teeth Whitening
Sapphire teeth whitening is an effective whitening process that uses the combination of hydrogen peroxide-based gel and Sapphire light to perform significant whitening results.
While home remedies and products can take weeks to have sometimes barely recognizable short-term effects, Sapphire teeth whitening at Venetian Pointe Dentistry in Orlando, Florida delivers long-lasting and impressive results in less than 90 minutes.
Sapphire teeth whitening candidacy
If you have teeth that aren’t as white as you desire, you could be the perfect candidate for Sapphire teeth whitening. The first step to determining one’s teeth whitening candidacy is through a consultation.
Teeth discoloration occurs for plenty of reasons. Genetics, aging, certain medications, smoking, diet, poor oral hygiene, or most likely some combination of the aforementioned. While it is important to address the underlying issue and potentially make some lifestyle changes, Sapphire whitening could be an effective solution to revert your teeth back to a whiter smile. After a whitening procedure, it would then be wise to take care of your new white teeth as best as possible with a proper diet and oral hygiene routine.
Sapphire teeth whitening advantages
As mentioned, the most significant advantage of teeth whitening using Sapphire light technology is time. Instead of having to put on whitening strips or use trays and gels every day for weeks, Sapphire whitening can be done in a single session at VP Dentistry.
Sapphire whitening is a very safe whitening solution. Some harsher strips or gels that are applied at home can cause discomfort in the gums or teeth, but with Sapphire whitening this discomfort is mitigated using protective gels and barriers.
The final advantage is in the results. Whitening often has extreme variations in effectiveness from person to person with over the counter products. However, with Sapphire teeth whitening, you can expect immediate results that will exceed your whitening goals as you walk out of the office!
Sapphire teeth whitening process
The process for Sapphire teeth whitening is simple. Upon arrival at VP Dentistry, your gums will be covered with a protective gel and the appropriate barriers will be placed to prevent discomfort. This is done to avoid any discomfort in the gums during and after the procedure.
Next, a hydrogen peroxide gel is applied thoroughly to all of the teeth. As the gel is activated by light, Sapphire light is methodically shined throughout the mouth on all of the teeth. This process usually takes between 30-60 minutes. Once complete, the gel is removed to reveal immediate results and a whiter, more radiant smile.
After the procedure it is natural to feel some sensitivity in the teeth. This shouldn’t last for more than a day or two.
