Teeth whitening is a versatile, affordable, and non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can be used to remove surface stains caused by the natural aging process and the consumption of coffee, tea, and wine. At Altamar Dental Studio, Dr. Marquez offers affordable and convenient teeth whitening in Naples to help spruce up your smile and self-esteem.
In-office whitening treatments are typically completed in one or two appointments. Dr. Marquez will clean your teeth and use a special barrier to protect your gums. Next, a powerful carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide solution will be painted onto your teeth and a powerful UV (ultraviolet) light will be used to “cure” the solution. Overall, you’ll spend about 30-90 minutes at our office and depending on the severity of your stains, your smile may be up to 10 shades brighter after a single appointment.

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, Dr. Marquez can provide you with a custom-made, professional teeth whitening kit. During your consultation, Dr. Marquez will take photos and impressions of your mouth, which will then be used to make your custom whitening tray. We will give you professional-grade whitening gels and pastes to use along with your trays. Over the course of the next 2-3 weeks, your smile will gradually become brighter and whiter as you follow our instructions for treatment.
Many store-bought whitening kits are much less effective than professional whitening trays. While you may save a bit of money by opting for an over-the-counter treatment, you simply won’t get the same results. In addition, if you overuse teeth whitening agents without the supervision of a dentist, you risk harming your teeth. Your gums could become irritated and inflamed, or you could even cause permanent damage to your tooth enamel. Because of this, we always recommend professional whitening treatments from Altamar Dental Studio.
