Teeth Whitening in Kingwood, Texas

Over the years our teeth can get stained from the foods we eat or from the beverages we drink. Brushing and flossing are ways to keep your teeth white, bright and healthy. Even after you have taken preventative measures to keep your teeth healthy and white, you might feel as if there is still a tint to them.

Reasons for Tooth Whitening

 
  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
 
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

Process

At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.
    At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
    You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays. Visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
