The appearance of your teeth can alter how you smile and affect your self-confidence when you’re with family, friends, or on the job. You can enhance your smile quickly and easily by eliminating dental stains and discoloration with professional teeth whitening. A consultation with our dentist will determine your candidacy for whitening as well as the best program for you based on your time requirements, budget, and preferences.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
One of the many advantages of whitening in the office is that you can just sit and relax. In about the time you would normally take for lunch, you can enjoy the changes in your appearance following one session of in-office teeth whitening.
Very often our dentist will recommend you have your teeth cleaned first to remove any topical stain and plaque on teeth before undergoing whitening.
The day of your whitening treatment, your technician will review the procedure with you. The process begins with all soft oral and gum tissues being protected. The whitening gel is applied to teeth and a laser or curing light is used to expedite whitening.
There are several considerations that dictate how many applications you may need … the amount of stain or discoloration as well as your teeth’s response to the whitening gel.
For patients wishing to lighten their teeth in the privacy and comfort of home, there are take home whitening kits available. Our team will provide you with whitening trays and the instructions needed to complete treatment at your convenience.
At-home whitening does take longer than in-office whitening, but similar results can be expected if all instructions are followed.
With all the teeth whitening products on the market today, you might wonder why obtaining this treatment from your dentist is so important? As a licensed dental provider, your dentist has access to the most powerful whitening agents available. Additionally, if you have questions or concerns about your treatment, you have someone to address them. Buying teeth whitening products online or at a store may come with instructions, but no one to help if something goes awry.
Cosmetic dentistry is readily available and more commonplace today than ever before in history. You can enjoy a great smile and give your self confidence a boost by placing a call to our team at Hulen Crossing Family Dental to schedule a tooth whitening consultation.
