You may notice that your teeth and smile have become dull, yellowed or stained over time. This can occur as a result of a number of factors, including:
- Poor dental hygiene
- The consumption of foods and drinks that stain teeth
- Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
- Illness and the use of certain medications
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption)
- The natural aging process
Our dentist and team offer professional teeth whitening to brighten and renew your smile. Teeth whitening is a simple, quick and highly effective option for improving your smile. While there are many over-the-counter whitening options available, a professional treatment will be faster, safer and more comfortable for you.
Teeth whitening treatments are available as an in-office treatment as well as a take-home treatment. Both types of whitening use a powerful whitening gel applied to the surfaces of your teeth. When you receive in-office whitening our dentist and team will apply this gel and then use a special light to activate it. The gel will then work to break up stains, discoloration and yellowing on your tooth enamel so that you can leave Premier Dental Studio of Katy with a noticeably whiter smile. When you receive take-home whitening we will provide you with a set of whitening trays, into which you will place the gel. You will then wear the trays as directed, and over the course of several weeks your teeth will gradually become whiter. We will discuss your smile goals and whitening options with you during your appointment to determine which type of whitening is right for you.
Please keep in mind that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution — you will need to practice good oral hygiene at home and continue to visit our dentist for routine preventive care in order to maintain your smile. You may also need to receive another whitening treatment periodically to “touch up” your teeth.
