Almost anyone with staining and discoloration on their teeth is a good candidate for teeth whitening in Jacksonville. Of course, the only way to know for sure whether or not you’re eligible is by having a consultation with Dr. Schumacher. He’ll conduct an oral examination, review your oral health and medical history, and ask about your goals to determine if this option is right for you. It’s an excellent cosmetic treatment for patients wanting to feel more confident in professional and social settings.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Once we’ve decided that you’re eligible for teeth whitening, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal smile. At your consultation, Dr. Schumacher will explain how the in-office whitening treatment works so you know what to expect.

The cosmetic procedure is called “20 Minute Smiles” because it can make your pearly whites six to eight shades brighter in just one appointment. The dental-grade bleaching gel that Dr. Schumacher uses is far more powerful than anything you find at your local store. It’s capable of penetrating the enamel and breaking up even the most stubborn stains. Not only does this specific treatment minimize the risk of sensitivity, but it delivers stunning results that’ll last several months with proper care.
