Brushing and flossing your teeth is vital to keep your mouth healthy. Unfortunately, due to genetics and lifestyle, you may not have the bright, pearly whites you long for. Don’t give up hope! With modern technology and state of the art techniques, tooth whitening at our dental office in Houston, Texas is easier than ever!
Tooth whitening can benefit a wide array of people that may have dull or yellow teeth. Most of the population experience less than favorable tooth color due to consumption of tea and coffee, tobacco use, age, or even medications. Tooth whitening works by using one of these two bleaching agents: hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These break the stains down into smaller pieces, making the stains less contracted, and therefore less noticeable. Take home trays make it possible for most patients to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home.
Conventional treatments include whitening strips from local drug stores, but if you want fast results in a safe environment, the dental office offers take-home whitening trays. Molds of your teeth are taken in-office and cured. After the mold has been made, it is then sent to a lab to make whitening trays for your individual set of teeth. The importance of these trays fitting to your exact teeth is to ensure the whitening agent has no room to move, allowing your teeth to get their whitest possible. This type of teeth whitening offers minimal discomfort compared to whitening strips mentioned above.
Don’t hesitate to make your smile the best it can be with take-home trays from our dental office in Houston, TX! Make an appointment today!
