Rejuvenate Your Smile This Fall

September 22 marks the first day of Autumn, a time of year that brings new beginnings. Many people return to classes after enjoying summertime months off. Fall is also a time of year many couples get married with nature’s picturesque, fall foliage as their ceremonial backdrop. No matter what events you may have on your calendar this fall, Palm Harbor Premier Dental wants you to look and feel your very best. This is the perfect time of year to rejuvenate your smile!

Your smile is one of the first things people notice. If your teeth have become dull and stained over the years, teeth-whitening treatment can put the sparkle back into your smile. We know how disappointing it can be to no longer have that pearly white smile you once had. Teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive treatment that provides a significant and noticeable improvement to your smile.

Rejuvenate Your Smile and Your Relationships

A bright and confident smile can affect many aspects of your life. Your work-related relationships can be negatively impacted through your insecurities if you are overly self-conscious about your smile. Dealing with customers or clients can also become more problematic. Career advancement can become more out-of-reach if your self-confidence issues show through during job interviews and meetings. Your personal relationships can also suffer if you are holding back from social situations and the fall season is often packed with parties and events. Teeth whitening can be an effective solution to boost your confidence during these social situations.

Walking down the aisle, starting a new semester of school or attending a special fall event with the utmost confidence has never been easier. Contact Palm Harbor Premier Dental at (813) 879 – 0560 to rejuvenate your smile this fall season. We are ready to help you bring back the radiant smile you deserve!

Can Strawberries Whiten Your Teeth?

July 7th is National Strawberry Sundae Day. Although this delicious treat has many flavorful variations, all strawberry sundaes are topped with a bountiful helping of sliced, whole, or chopped strawberries.

Fun facts: Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside and are a member of the rose family.

We would like to take this opportunity to talk about the dental benefits of strawberries. Strawberries are loaded with vitamin C, which helps your body make collagen for healthy gums. Strawberries also contain xylitol, which prevents cavity-causing bacteria from sticking to your teeth. Read more about the Nutritional Benefits of the Strawberry.

Finally, this leaves us with the big question… Can Strawberries Whiten Your Teeth?

Yes! Strawberries contain the tooth-whitening enzyme called malic acid, which can brighten up a dull smile. Remember that berries are very acidic and using this home remedy too frequently could damage the enamel on your teeth.

There are only two ingredients in this strawberry whitening recipe:

      • 1 Strawberry
      • 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

Follow these simple instructions to get your whiter smile using the strawberry / baking soda mix method:

    1. Puree or crush one strawberry.
    2. Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and mix well.
    3. Dip your toothbrush into the mixture.
    4. Coat your teeth well.
    5. Let the mixture sit on your teeth for about 5 minutes.
    6. Brush your teeth with regular toothpaste and floss right away.

Of course, nothing is as effective as a professional whitening treatment. However, there are whitening toothpastes and natural whitening methods that can be used in moderation to help maintain your bright, stain-free smile. Always remember to brush as soon as possible after eating acidic and sugary foods.

Don’t forget dental checkups and cleanings should be done every 6 months to maintain your healthy smile. Contact Palm Harbor Premier Dental at (813) 289 – 0560 to make your next appointment. Our friendly staff will find a day and time that works best with your busy schedule. We have appointment times before and after work hours 7 am to 7 pm for your convenience. We look forward to hearing from you!


Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the fairest teeth of them all? We pick Charlize Theron to fill those shoes. With the release of the movie sequel Huntsman: The Winter’s War, we thought we would give this villainous vixen applauds for her wickedly white smile. In her role as The Evil Queen, Ravenna, you may not notice her vibrant, bright teeth; Evil queens rarely smile except an occasional howl of laughter as an expression of evil intent.

If you haven’t seen the movie trailer, you can see it here. We are sure it will love it! It’s a film that is sure to entertain and put a smile on your face, but don’t let the yellowing effect keep you from showing off all that contentment. Ravenna’s stunningly white teeth radiate with her golden hair and all her auric glory.

A Wickedly White Smile with Teeth Bleaching

 Tones of yellow and gold can be a beautiful sight, but not when it comes to your teeth. Over time, your teeth can become yellow and discolored even in their healthy state. This discoloring can make you feel self-conscious and may even prevent you from smiling. If you are hiding your smile because they are not as bright as you would like, Palm Harbor Premier Dental offers bleaching treatments both in-office and at home. Our deep bleaching treatment can increase the brightness of your smile many levels past your biologically whitening limit.

Prior to your in-office professional bleaching, you will be given trays to use at home that prime your teeth for the treatment. We combine at-home and in-office treatment to whiten your teeth even beyond traditional methods and whitening solutions. This bleaching method lasts much longer than conventional whitening methods.

The cosmetic treatment needed would depend on what issues you have with your teeth. It could be as simple as teeth whitening treatment to brighten your smile if your teeth are already in great shape.

Some cases may need a little longer treatment if the teeth are misaligned and contributing to further dental health concerns. With today’s technology, we have 6 month braces. They are practically invisible and only take 6 months vs. the 2+ years from traditional orthodontic treatment.

Christmas is a time for celebrating life, love, experiences and new beginnings with friends and family. This is the time of year when people look forward to reconnecting with old friends and also meeting new ones. When joining together with the special people in your life, it’s always nice to express your happiness with a warm and welcoming smile.

Don’t be hesitant to show your holiday smile because your teeth are less than bright and white. You can have a dramatically brighter smile through professional teeth whitening treatments. Here at Palm Harbor Premier Dental, we offer at home bleaching as well as deep bleaching in the office for maximum whitening results. Our teeth whitening treatments are far more superior than the over-the-counter products you may have tried in the past. These OTC treatments are generally not as effective and can take weeks to show noticeable results.

When you have your teeth professionally whitened, you will have the most dramatic results in the least amount of time. We can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades in a single visit because the active ingredient in our whitening gels is a much higher concentration than OTC gels. The treatment is generally safe and effective when done under professional supervision. We closely monitor the whitener’s action during treatment, and ensure your lips, gums, and surrounding tissues are fully protected from exposure to chemicals.

A full dental exam with x-rays is a requirement prior to having any professional teeth whitening treatment. Certain dental problems may cause a dull appearance to your teeth, such as a root canal. During the exam, we rule out any problems with your teeth that may be contributing to any discolorations. You will also need a regular dental cleaning. This is to remove any stains and plaque build-up that could hinder the bleaching process. Following these steps and any additional dental work that may be needed, we can begin your bleaching treatment.

White Christmas Smile


The use of dental crowns with bleaching is a great option for acquiring a natural looking, bright smile. Sometimes dental crowns alone will not get the desired look for the best smile possible. The two treatments can be used together to cover damaged teeth and brighten the appearance of your overall smile.


Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. In the past, dental crowns in Palm Harbor required a metal substructure, but with today’s technology, all-porcelain crowns are now available.

All-Porcelain Crowns

All-porcelain crowns are more natural looking than traditional porcelain fused to metal crowns. They provide support for damaged teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury. Read more about All-Porcelain crowns and view some of our before and after photos.


Professional teeth whitening can also be used along with all-porcelain crowns for maximum results. Deep bleaching is the best-known tooth whitening solution. It can leave your teeth significantly whiter than other teeth whitening solutions. Find out more about deep bleaching and view the results of some of our patients here.


If you think dental crowns with bleaching might be a dental treatment for you, Palm Harbor Premier Dental can help. We offer amazing deep bleaching, professional teeth whitening treatments to our patients. For more information about our dental crowns with bleaching, please contact us today at (813) 289 – 0560.






Certain beverages that stain your teeth that have more staining potential than others. The presence of pigmented molecules called chromogens and the acidity of the drinks both cause staining. There are also drinks that contain compounds that boost the chromogens’ ability to attach to the enamel of your teeth. These are called tannins. If a beverage contains chromogens and tannins together, the probability for staining is increased substantially.

Coffee and TeaBeverages That Stain Your Teeth - Coffee & Tea

In general, the darker the beverage, the more staining can occur such as coffee. Although coffee contains high levels of chromogens. It is low in tannins. Tea, however, is rich in both chromogens and tannins making it quite possibly the bigger stainer of the two.

Beverages That Stain Your Teeth - Red & White WineBoth Red and White Wine

Red wine is an acidic drink that contains chromogens and tannins making it more likely to cause staining. The acid in white wine can etch away at your teeth leaving them more porous and susceptible to staining.

Sodas and Sports DrinksBeverages That Stain Your Teeth - Sodas & Sports Drinks

Sodas and sports drinks are highly acidic and help promote staining by other foods. The darker sodas are also chromogen rich.

Beverages That Stain Your Teeth - JuiceJuice

Consider the dark pigment in juices such as grape and cranberry. Berries are chromogen rich and so are the  beverages containing them. Most juices are highly pigmented and cause staining on your teeth.

Things you can do to limit staining:
  • Try adding milk to your coffee or tea to lighten it up a bit.
  • Consider consuming less
  • Rinse with water after drinking
  • Drink through a straw to bypass the fronts of your teeth
  • Have herbal teas instead of black tea
Treatments for Stained Teeth
  • Take Home Bleaching – a simple and affordable way to remove teeth staining due to things we eat and drink.
  • Deep Bleaching Treatments – for people looking for the whitest smile, deep bleaching is the best-known tooth whitening solution, and it can leave your teeth significantly whiter than other teeth whitening solutions.
  • Veneers – for people with staining not due to eating and drinking but maybe due to medications or old bondings, Veneers are the best option.
