Professional Teeth Whitening is the Quickest Way to Instantly Look Younger

With Botox®, dermal fillers, and aesthetic lasers, you have many treatment options to help you defy aging. But before you subject yourself to needles and painful treatments, you may want to consider professional teeth whitening, which can brighten your smile in less than an hour and shave years off your look.

At Higgins Dental in Jacksonville, Florida, we can lighten your teeth up to eight shades with our in-office Zoom!™ professional teeth-whitening system. We also offer professional teeth-whitening kits you can use at home to maintain your younger, gorgeous smile.

So if you’re looking for an instantly younger look, scheduling a professional teeth-whitening session with Dr. Higgins is the way to go.

Your aging teeth

Even if you take good care of your teeth — brushing and flossing daily and coming to our office for your regular dental cleanings — your teeth are susceptible to dulling and discoloration.

Your teeth are encased in enamel, which is a strong mineral composite that protects the inner portion of your teeth. Unlike your bones, enamel doesn’t regenerate, but it does wear away over time. While your enamel is partly responsible for the color of your teeth, it’s also translucent. As the strong mineral wears away, it allows the more yellow dentin portion of your teeth to show through.

But it’s not just the loss of enamel that affects the color of your teeth. Years of coffee, tea, and wine drinking can take its toll, too. Your teeth are porous and stain easily, and these drinks can add to the discoloration.

And if you smoke, well … it’s not helping your look. Like the teeth-staining drinks, the nicotine in cigarettes can turn your teeth a dark yellow or brown, and quickly. Smoking also accelerates skin aging, which means you’ll develop lines and creases sooner.

Turning back the clock

If your yellow, dull smile is making you look older than you feel, then it’s time to do something about it. It’s never too late to make a change and invest in yourself.

We can improve your look and boost your confidence in just one visit with our in-office Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment. The in-office treatment combines a teeth-whitening gel with an LED light that accelerates the whitening process.

We can brighten your smile up to eight shades in just 45 minutes. Imagine shaving years from your look in only 45 minutes.

We customize your teeth-whitening treatment to fit your exact needs and aesthetic goals. Before we begin the teeth-whitening process, we thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any stains or debris. And to ensure you have the best possible experience, we create whitening trays that fit your mouth perfectly.

It’s not unusual to experience some sensitivity after professional teeth whitening, but these side effects usually only last a few hours.

Maintaining your younger look

Once we’ve brightened your smile, we want nothing more than for you to maintain your new, younger look for as long as possible. In addition to the in-office teeth-whitening treatments, we also supply professional teeth-whitening treatments you can use at home to help you keep your beautiful smile. We also recommend that you continue to come in for your regularly scheduled cleanings to keep your mouth healthy.


While you may have a hard time giving up your coffee or wine, keep in mind that these drinks will stain your teeth, even after your professional in-office teeth whitening. To prevent stains from adhering to the enamel, we recommend you rinse your mouth with water after consumption. Or you can drink through a straw so the liquid hits the back of your teeth instead of the front. Brushing after every meal may also prevent stains from setting in.


Aesthetic treatments can help you look more like you feel. To turn back the clock quickly and painlessly, contact Higgins Dental by phone or use our online booking button to schedule a teeth-whitening consultation.
