Brighten Your Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening at Your Time Dental Urgent Care

A radiant, white smile is an essential part of our appearance, exuding confidence and leaving a lasting impression on others. Over time, our teeth can become stained or discolored due to various factors, such as age, lifestyle habits, and certain foods and beverages.

Luckily, modern dentistry offers a solution to restore the brilliance of your smile: professional teeth whitening. Your Time Dental Urgent Care can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Why Choose Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective cosmetic dental procedure designed to lighten the shade of your teeth, removing stubborn stains and discolorations.

Preparation: Before beginning the whitening procedure, we will clean your teeth to remove any surface debris and plaque.

Customized Whitening Treatment: Your Time Dental Urgent Care offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. In-office treatments deliver immediate results in a single session, while at-home kits provide the convenience of whitening your teeth in the comfort of your home.

Post-Treatment Care: After your teeth whitening procedure, our dental team will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to ensure the longevity of your newfound brilliance.

Maintaining Your Sparkling Smile

To maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment, it is essential to adopt good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. Additionally, avoiding excessive consumption of stain-inducing foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can help prolong the effects of teeth whitening.

A dazzling smile can be a game-changer, boosting your self-confidence and leaving a memorable impression on others. With professional teeth whitening at Your Time Dental Urgent Care, you can achieve the bright smile you’ve always wanted, with the guidance of our expert dental team.

How To Get The Whitest Teeth in Florida

teeth whitening Gibsonton

Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but I think it’s safe to say that most of us Gibsonton residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Your Time Dental Urgent Care can help you achieve that stunning smile you deserve. Today we want to share some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you!

Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many individuals still fail to recognize this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent cavities. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it decreases the damage.

After brushing your teeth, another tip is to use a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it restricts it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.

Sometimes the discoloration is too extreme to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Your Time Dental Urgent Care offer other efficient procedures to beautify your smile. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth bleaching kits. Each of these protocols provide an effective solution to teeth whitening. The comfortable at Your Time Dental Urgent Care will work with you to find the best solution to improve your smile.

Unexpected Stress? Don’t Forget Your Smile

Apollo Beach cosmetic dental and tooth implants

When you suddenly have to juggle extra balls, some are bound to get dropped. Perhaps you are going through a divorce or became the caregiver for an ailing parent. Perhaps you took on a second job or started night school to earn an advanced degree.

Not every stressor is negative. A new baby, marriage, career, or move can be exciting but overwhelming. It’s okay – and sometimes helpful – to drop some of the balls. You can probably let another parent take over room mother duties for a few weeks, forego a haircut, or skip poker night until things calm down.

When life hands you extra challenges it is easy to get lax about oral hygiene, but Your Time Dental urges you not to. Sometimes you feel too exhausted to brush or floss and skip regular check-ups and cleanings. Dr. Richard Kernagis wants to remind you to think about the possible consequences of neglecting your smile.
1. Tooth decay
2. Gum disease
2. Tooth and gum pain
3. Bad breath
4. Infection
5. Tooth loss

Your plate is already full – you don’t want to add poor oral health and the associated expense and inconvenience required to treat advanced issues.

Let the car go unwashed for a few weeks. Record your favorite show to watch later when things slow down. Postpone that kitchen remodel. But keep your smile healthy – it really will make your life easier, healthier, and happier.

Your Time Dental Urgent Care in Gibsonton provides gentle, comprehensive dental care for the whole family. Our services include:
root canals
tooth extractions
weekend dental care
dental implants

Dr. Kernagis is a member of the American Dental Association. You can learn more about the American Dental Association at https://www.ama-assn.org. If you haven’t seen a dentist in a while, we invite you to call us at 813-519-0128 and schedule an exam and cleaning. Our cheerful team will make you feel comfortable and relaxed. There is no need to feel ashamed about plaque build-up or a cavity. We completely understand how stressful life can get and love helping our Gibsonton area patients get back on track.

We make patients feel comfortable!

Can You Name 9 Dental Specialties in the Gibsonton Area?

Lithia Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry

Most Gibsonton area residents probably know how a pediatric dentist differs from an orthodontist. Some Fish Hawk dental patients may even know the unique focus of endodontists. However, few Florida residents probably know that the American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties. Today’s post from Your Time Dental looks at the specific disciplines within the fascinating world of dentistry and the years in which they were formally recognized by the ADA. (If you want a challenge, see if you can name all nine before you continue reading this post.)

Endodontics (1983): This area focuses on “the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp.”1 If you need a root canal in Gibsonton, you may require the services of an endodontist.

Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (2003): If you want to straighten your teeth, you need an orthodontist. Dentofacial orthopedic specialists correct facial deformities using many of the same types of appliances used in teeth straightening therapy.

Pediatric Dentistry (1995): Lithia pediatric dentists provide dental care for infants, children, and teenagers.

Periodontics (1992): “Periodontics is that specialty of dentistry which encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes.”1 Periodontal specialists perform crown lengthening, pocket reduction, and soft tissue (gum) grafts.

Prosthodontics (2003): Prosthodontists provide restorative dental procedures including dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures. They also perform cosmetic dental treatments including porcelain veneers, crowns, dental bonding, invisible fillings, and teeth bleaching.

Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology (1991): This specialty concerns “the nature, identification, and management of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. It is a science that investigates the causes, processes, and effects of these diseases. The practice of oral pathology includes research and diagnosis of diseases using clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, or other examinations.”1

Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology
(2001): Oral and maxillofacial radiologists analyze radiographic images (x-rays) for issues of the maxillofacial area.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (1990): Oral surgeons perform surgery on the teeth, jaw, face, and gums. These include facial reconstruction, cleft lip and palate correction, bone grafting, dental implants, and impacted teeth.

Dental Public Health (1976): This discipline focuses on “preventing and controlling dental diseases and promoting dental health through organized community efforts.”1

General and cosmetic dentists in the Gibsonton area are trained in a wide variety of dental procedures. However, sometimes your Tampa general dentist will refer you to a local Tampa specialist, or include a specialist as part of your treatment team.

Affordable Teeth Whitening in Gibsonton?

Affordable Tampa Tooth Whitening If you are like most Your Time Dental patients, you have probably observed the multitude of ads for ‘free teeth whitening kits’.

Some show a ‘real Apollo Beach mom’ who discovered a ‘tooth-whitening secret’. Others assure you that their system is the one that ‘Fish Hawk dentists don’t want you to know about’. Many contain a link to a page that contains a convincing tooth-whitening testimonial. They bolster their legitimacy by aligning themselves with respected companies such as CNN, USA Today, and Forbes.

Unfortunately, most of these are fraudulent. In a recent article, the Better Business Bureau explains the scam:

The countless websites for various teeth whitening products claim to offer a no-risk, money-back guarantee, and free trial of the product. To sign up, customers must provide a credit or debit card number to cover shipping. Complainants to BBB state that they are billed before their trial ends and continue to be billed after they have told the company they want to cancel.

Complainants also may find mystery charges for other companies and services that they didn’t realize they were signing up for with their ‘free’ trial.

The BBB has received complaints about the following company/product names:

  • Dazzle White
  • White Smile
  • Teeth Smile
  • Dazzle Smile
  • Ivory White
  • Max White
  • My Whitening
  • Gleaming White Smile
  • Advanced Wellness Research

Don’t trust your smile to an internet fraudster. Your tooth whitening dental office is the only place for safe teeth bleaching. You don’t want to take a chance with your credit card number or your tooth enamel! Call us at Your Time Dental Urgent Care for advanced cosmetic dentistry and worry-free tooth whitening.

Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

Gibsonton cosmetic dentistry

If you have missing spaces in your smile due to decay, injury, or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or broken, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic Dentistry by Your Time Dental can fix all of those problems.

Dr. Kernagis at Your Time Dental Urgent Care has the ability handle the toughest cosmetic dental problems. Since 2001, Dr. Kernagis has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.

Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to retain your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer several ways for you to maintain (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

Dental Veneers
If you still have your teeth but are not satisfied with them, these might be the best answer. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively economical approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

Dental Implant
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that includes an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.

Dentures
Most Gibsonton residents have heard of dentures: plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are individually constructed and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.

There is no need to miss out on an attractive smile. Schedule your initial consultation at 813-519-0128 to visit us at 13145 Kings Lake Drive Ste 105B in Gibsonton, Florida. We are perfectly situated for our neighbors throughout the Gibsonton area.

Tools For Tooth Transformations

porcelain veneers price Tampa

Too-small teeth. Misshapen teeth. Cracked teeth. Chipped teeth. Spacing irregularities. These problems are all too common. But you don’t have to live with them! With the advances in cosmetic dentistry at Your Time Dental, there are fixes for these vexing tooth problems!

1. Veneers. (Also called dental laminates or porcelain veneers). These fragile shells are custom-made so the size, shape, and color perfectly match your surrounding teeth. The veneers are securely cemented to the front of the teeth to dramatically enhance your smile.

2. Bonding. This procedure uses a strong tooth-colored resin to close spaces, repair chips, and cracks, or change the shape. The resin is molded into place and then a light is applied to harden the material for secure adherence to the tooth.

3. Crowns. Most people are familiar with this durable multi-purpose restoration. Natural-looking dental crowns are fabricated in the shape and color of the tooth and cemented into place to fully cover the part of the tooth visible above the gumline.

4. Braces. Patients of all ages are transforming their smiles with advanced orthodontia. Before you dismiss this option as too time-consuming or costly, learn about the new braces now available. Braces are more convenient and discrete than ever before.

Countless Tampa dental patients have achieved dazzling smiles with a smile transformation from Your Time Dental Urgent Care!

My name is Dr. Richard Kernagis of Your Time Dental Urgent Care in Gibsonton. I am passionate about to helping my patients have optimum oral health and beautiful smiles. If you have any questions about veneers, bonding, recontouring, or crowns, I invite you to call us at 813-519-0128 to make an appointment today. We make patients feel comfortable!
