A whiter smile can brighten even the darkest day. You do not have to let stains and discolorations hold you back. Our cosmetic dentist in Houston offers a variety of teeth whitening treatments that can transform your smile.
The outer layer of your teeth, or your enamel, is translucent, which means that it shows the layer beneath it, or dentin. The dentin can be yellow, brown, gray or black, and it can show through the enamel as the enamel becomes worn over time. Additionally, chromogenic substances such as tea and coffee can stain enamel and the underlying dentin. Teeth whitening procedures are designed to open the pores of the enamel and allow the whitening solution to penetrate and lighten the dentin for a brighter smile.
At-home whitening is a common choice. We can customize a mouth tray and whitening solution for you to use at home according to our instructions. Results will be visible within a few days, but your teeth will continue whitening throughout the course of treatment.
In-office whitening is another option. If you are a candidate for in-office teeth whitening, we will apply the whitening solution in our office. A special light activates the whitening solution and allows it to penetrate quickly, evenly and effectively for lightning-fast results. In fact, many patients enjoy a smile that is up to eight shades lighter after a single one-hour appointment.
A brighter smile may be just a few days away. Contact our expert in teeth whitening in Houston today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
