Why Do People Whiten Their Teeth? Fort Lauderdale, FL | Dr. Patty

What Can You Do if Your Previous Teeth Whitening Didn’t Work?

Cosmetic DentistryYou can look younger, more confident, and more attractive by having whiter teeth. For over 3,000 years, people have wanted whiter teeth. Today, you can find hundreds of products made to whiten teeth both online and in stores along with procedures that your cosmetic dentist can perform such as:

  • Professional tray whitening
  • Light-activated whitening
  • Chair-side teeth whitening

Whether you purchase these products or visit your dentist, they all have one thing in common; they are temporary. Eventually, you will need to re-whiten your teeth due to any of these reasons:

  • Foods you consume
  • Natural effects of aging
  • Genetics
  • Dental conditions

At Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, FL. we can help you choose the option that is best for your situation so that you can have an incredible smile day after day.

Teeth Bleaching

This is the least invasive method that you can use to maintain a whiter smile along with proper dental hygiene. While this option is highly recommended, it may not be effective in all cases. For example, if you suffer from tetracycline stains or similar dental conditions, you may need a more invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure. Also, you may want to invest in another option if you want whiter teeth than what can be achieved through teeth bleaching.


While cosmetic dentistry can focus greatly on professional teeth whitening, there are other options that you will have if you are interested in achieving a permanently white smile such as a smile makeover, veneers, or other restorations.

Permanent Whitening Techniques and Procedures

If you have decided that you want to whiten your teeth permanently, the cosmetic dentists at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique can help. If you would like a more pleasing appearance, we can offer a variety of techniques and procedures for existing dental or oral structures that can:

  • Augment
  • Reduce
  • Reshape

We can create a permanent, radiantly white smile that you will want to show off in your Instagram selfies all day long.


When you schedule your complimentary consultation, we can discuss what you would like to improve with your smile, what you would like to have done, what can be done, and which dental procedures will be needed to achieve your goal. We may use the following techniques:

  • Additions

Along with these options, you will still be able to take a cosmetic approach by neither adding nor removing dental materials, tooth structure, or gums within your mouth.
