Professional Teeth Whitening
Keeping teeth white is really an impossibility. Over time, teeth begin to darken. This is due to what we eat and drink, and for many, teeth are affected by smoking and chewing tobacco-related products. Regardless of why your teeth have become a darker shade, our dentists at Houston Dental Esthetics can help brighten your smile.
Our Katy dental office provides two different types of dental whitening procedures. These two options enable patients to whiten their teeth at their own rate and at different price ranges.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening – Our in-office whitening procedure is very powerful and only takes a short amount of time. Our cosmetic dentists place two retractors in your mouth to keep your lips away from your teeth. Then hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth and left applied for approximately an hour. After the hour treatment is complete, the gel is removed and then the retractors are taken out. The results are instantaneous. Depending on how white a patient wishes their teeth to be, multiple in-office teeth whitening procedures may be required.
- At-Home Teeth Whitening – For an at-home whitening kit, patients still must schedule an appointment with our dentist. The reason they must come in is because we take impressions of the patient’s mouth in order to create custom trays to fit the teeth. These trays are filled with teeth whitening gel and are worn for approximately 30 to 40 minutes at a time, preferably every other day or once every three days depending upon how sensitive the patient’s teeth are. The process of getting teeth at the desired shade takes longer than in-office teeth whitening, but it is not as expensive.
