What Are My Teeth Whitening Options?
No two patients have identical needs, schedules, or preferences when it comes to teeth whitening. At Beauty and the Teeth, we created several teeth whitening packages to suit each patient.
Our Brightest White Package is the preferred method of our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Diana Tadros, for long-term results. This option includes an in-office whitening procedures that uses an accelerator light to whiten your teeth up to eight shades. This appointment can be completed in about two hours.
Following your initial whitening procedure, Dr. Tadros will recommend between three and four sessions of ZOOM! Light whitening, which take about 15 minutes each. You will also receive custom trays with Daywhite whitening gel and post-whitening sensitivity relief gel so you can maintain your results at home.

Dr. Tadros is an extremely accomplished dentist, the only legit accredited cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale! Highly recommend 10/10!
treatment begins with a two hour in-office whitening procedure which whitens the teeth 3-4 shades. Following this treatment, Dr. Tadros will recommend three to four 15-minute Zoom! Light sessions and send you home with post-whitening sensitivity relief gel to use with at-home trays.
If you’re short on time, the Take Me Home Tonight Package may be for you. This treatment includes custom trays that require a simple 15-minute appointment to take impressions. Then, you’ll receive either Zoom! DayWhite or Night White gel and post-whitening sensitivity relief gel. Multiple strengths of bleach are available through this package, making it a great option if you are prone to sensitivity. At home, you will then use the trays and whitening gel for 10-30 minutes per day, and can purchase touch-up kits as needed.
This is the best option for our busiest patients. Opalescence Go kits include 10 trays that are disposable and pre-filled with whitening gel. The unique formula of this system warms with the temperature of your body, making it comfortable and adaptable.

With so many options available, teeth whitening is right for virtually any patient who has healthy teeth and gums. Before you purchase any of our teeth whitening packages, Dr. Tadros will ensure that your teeth and gums are suitably healthy and recommend which option will be most effective for you.
How Can I Make My Teeth Whitening Results Last Longer?
After you’ve had your teeth whitened, it’s important to keep up with good oral hygiene practices to keep them white and healthy. Avoid coffee, tea, or wine, which can stain the teeth, or use a straw when possible. Touch up treatments are available if you notice staining or yellowing after whitening.
