Get a Dazzling Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening

smiling couple with white teethA smile that sparkles can boost your self-confidence and help you look your best. Dr. George H. Burgess offers a fast, easy way for you to have that beautiful smile: professional teeth whitening at his Bradenton, FL, dental practice. Professional teeth whitening uses a more powerful bleaching solution than you can buy with an over-the-counter whitening kit. With our Zoom!® in-office whitening system, it takes only one visit for your teeth to get several shades whiter. We also offer convenient take-home whitening so you can brighten your smile on your own time. To learn more about our teeth whitening options, schedule an appointment today.


Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is one of the safest, easiest cosmetic dental procedures available. Whitening your teeth with Dr. Burgess:

  • Can take years off your face
  • Is a relatively cost-effective way to dramatically improve your smile
  • Does not require a large investment of time
  • Looks completely natural, even at the maximum whiteness
  • Has improved with newer methods that reduce tooth sensitivity



Most patients that would like to have brighter teeth are candidates for either in-office or at-home teeth whitening. If you have any oral health conditions such as gum disease, cavities, or worn enamel, you should have them taken care of prior to whitening. Dr. Burgess can advise you of any general dentistry or periodontal care you may need when you have your evaluation. If you have the type of deep-set, intrinsic stains that can result from certain medications and health conditions, he may advise you to choose a different cosmetic procedure, such as porcelain veneers, to achieve your treatment goals.


In-office Whitening

The fastest way to get results is with Zoom!® chairside bleaching. First, you will receive a regular dental cleaning to remove plaque and debris. Then Dr. Burgess will protect your lips and gums by covering them with a rubber barrier that leaves your teeth exposed. He will then apply the whitening gel to your teeth. The Zoom!® system uses a light to activate the gel and maximize the whitening process. You will undergo three 15-20 minute sessions during your in-office treatment. The gel will then be cleaned from your teeth, and you will see your results immediately. We recommend maintaining your results with a take-home kit for touch-ups.


Take-home Whitening

If you opt for this method, Dr. Burgess will make you a set of custom bleaching trays. He will take impressions of your teeth for an exact fit. These trays work much better than the types you get in over-the-counter kits. They are also far more effective at keeping the gel in the trays so it does not get on your gums and potentially cause irritation. As with in-office bleaching, you should have a professional hygienic cleaning prior to treatment. When you take your kit home, you simply fill the trays with gel and wear them for about 30 minutes per day. Most patients attain the shade of whiteness they want in approximately two weeks. Afterward, you can touch up your smile at your convenience.
