At Elite Dental Wellness, our Houston TX dental treatment office specializes in teeth bleaching for those who want whiter teeth. Over the years lots of different substances can stain teeth, leaving them yellow and discolored. Wine, nicotine, and coffee can all have an effect on teeth color and whiteness. Dental bleaching is safe and effective, so our whitening procedure can be done in just a few trips to our office or by using our convenient take home trays.
We recommend patients receive a regular teeth cleaning before their session so that teeth are in their best condition. If you prefer to use our take home trays for your Houston TX dental treatment, the method is just as easy and simple. We first make a mold of the teeth at our offices so that we can provide you with custom made trays that you take home and use during your own time. This ensures the whitening solution covers just the teeth needed and that maximum coverage is provided, without irritation of the gums. Also, over the counter bleaching solutions can irritate gums, so it’s best to have the procedure performed in our offices.
Should you choose to have teeth bleaching done in our offices we’ll ask you to come in for several sessions. During the visit, we’ll apply bleaching gel to the teeth to break up stains and discoloration. Most bleaching procedures take a half an hour to 45 minutes for us to whiten teeth during your Houston TX dental treatment. We then apply a paste to the teeth to reduce gum sensitivity. With proper care and oral hygiene routines, teeth whitening procedures can last up to a year or more, depending on maintenance. Our dentist can also provide you with a touch up kit that includes custom fitted whitening trays for spot maintenance if needed.
