Teeth Whitening in Cape Coral, FL

Cape Family Dental offers two distinctly different approaches to illuminating your smile: take-home trays and in-house whitening. Whichever non-invasive procedure you choose, our team can make you feel more confident about your smile.

Take-Home Trays

A dentist creates a transparent tray after making a mold of your teeth. At home, you will apply whitening additives to the trays before you put them in. A convenient approach to teeth whitening in Cape Coral, FL, take-home trays allow you to wear a nearly invisible mouth guard while you sleep.

The benefits of this system include:

  • Lower cost than other options
  • Convenience since you can use the solution and whiten your teeth at night
  • Trays to fit your teeth, minimizing gum sensitivity

Since you have to add the whitening additives and put in the trays yourself, the risk of user error is higher. However, Dr. McClaran and the Family Dental Care staff will walk you through the process, so you feel confident about using take-home trays.

In-office Whitening

Supervised by a dentist, in-office whitening acts fast with immediate results. The dentist treats your teeth over the course of 90 minutes. We place a protective barrier over your gums and then apply a solution primarily made of carbamide peroxide to your teeth. We repeat this process until you are satisfied with how bright your smile is.

With in-office whitening from Cape Family Dental, you can expect:

  • Whiter teeth from only one appointment
  • Doctor supervision to ensure safety and privacy

Because a dentist, rather than the patient, performs this treatment, in-office whitening tends to be more expensive than other procedures. We recommend follow-up appointments to fully remove stains and discoloration to reveal your white smile.

Your gums may experience some sensitivity during the bleaching process; however, there are no long-term side effects of whitening your teeth.
