A beautiful, white smile is a universal desire. Unfortunately, as we age, many of us find that our teeth become dull, darker or yellow. The good news is that a professional whitening treatment can bring back the bright smile of your youth.
Many patients complain about the color of their teeth. At Southern Dental Associates at Katy, we offer professional whitening treatments using our own high-quality products. This provides amazing results that will leave you smiling with pride.
The appearance of our teeth can change for a variety of reasons, including:
In addition to exterior staining, teeth can appear yellow due to the thinning of enamel as we age. This exposes more of the interior dentin which looks yellow. The best way to reverse discoloration is to whiten the interior and exterior of the teeth. Professional whitening treatments can accomplish this in a manner that is safe and effective. Professional whitening products use oxygen ions that treat the surface of the tooth and enter the interior of the tooth to break down staining. This will make the teeth whiter while leaving the structure of the teeth intact.
When providing our in-house professional whitening treatment, we start by protecting your lips and gums. We then apply the whitening product directly to your teeth. This will produce oxygen ions that break down staining. Most whitening treatments are completed in about an hour, and you’ll see the amazing results immediately.
For most patients, teeth whitening is a very comfortable process. If you have very sensitive teeth, please let us know ahead of time. Some patients do have teeth whitening sensitivity. While a whiter smile can help boost your self-confidence, some patients do worry about sensitivity. While it can be uncomfortable, the good news is that it doesn't cause any permanent damage to your teeth, and typically, it doesn't last for very long.
