Professional Teeth Whitening in Milton, FL
Dull or yellowed teeth are a common concern among millions of people, affecting their smile’s aesthetics. While discolored teeth may be indicative of poor oral hygiene, they may also signify aging or teeth fragility, caused by various factors.
With professional teeth whitening treatments, attaining a bright and radiant smile has become simpler, and can often be achieved in a single session. The process involves applying a hydrogen peroxide gel on the teeth, followed by activating the gel to release oxygen ions. These ions penetrate the teeth and effectively eliminate interior and exterior stains, resulting in a brighter appearance. This bleaching process is incredibly effective and extremely safe with little to no discomfort.
At Thrive Dental, we are proud to offer the GLO whitening system. The GLO whitening system offers no messy strips, no uncomfortable trays, no drippy gel, and no sensitivity, which is a huge benefit for most of our dental patients. You will have brighter teeth in as little as an hour!

How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like using hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse with on an occasional basis (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), eat more fruits and vegetables as they are good for your body and your teeth, limit foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—it’s still a powerful tool. At Thrive Dental we also offer the GLO take home whitening kit! You can get the benefits of the GLO whitening system from the convenience of your own home. No messy trays or strips, just brighter teeth. Stop in or call for more information.
How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- Professional. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
