Do you want a whiter and brighter smile? At The Dental Design Studios in Houston, Texas, you can achieve this with two professional solutions: in-office teeth bleaching or at-home whitening trays. Our dedicated team will assist you in choosing the option that suits your needs to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure used for whitening stained or discolored teeth.
For in-office treatments, the dentist uses peroxide-based bleaching agents. The solution is applied to your teeth and activated to brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in one dental visit.
For at-home whitening, the dentist can offer you customized trays that use whitening agents similar to the ones used in in-office treatments.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
The teeth whitening procedures performed by professionals are significantly more effective than the ones you may find in drugstores. They use special bleaching solutions that are more powerful and special light or lasers to intensify and speed up the whitening process.
In only 30 to 60 minutes, you can get a smile that is three to eight shades brighter.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening is considered more convenient by some patients.
To ensure the best results, the dentist will design trays that perfectly fit your teeth and then provide a special solution and instructions on how to apply the whitening agent and when.
You will have to use the trays for about one hour each day for two weeks to achieve a bright white smile.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening treatments provide the following benefits:
- They increase your self-esteem by improving the appearance of your smile
- They instantly make your teeth whiter and brighter
- They are safe and painless procedures
- They will dramatically improve your oral hygiene
- They are a cost-effective way to improve your smile
Aftercare Tips for Teeth Whitening
After getting your teeth whitened professionally, you should avoid consuming staining or highly acidic foods to maintain the results. You should also maintain a good oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist every six months for dental cleanings and checkups.
