Teeth Whitening in Texas City, TX
While there are many over-the-counter whitening products available, the results do not measure up to professional teeth whitening by dentists. Dentist teeth whitening options yield a brighter smile in less time while still affording patients to elect gradual, at-home whitening trays.
There are several key differences between teeth whitening by dentists and those purchased over the counter:
Power. Over the counter products have a weaker bleaching agent, ranging from 10% to 22% carbamide peroxide. This cannot compare in effectiveness to the 15% to 43% mixture used when receiving teeth whitening by dentists.
Comfort. Over the counter whitening trays come in one size and are not comfortable or customized in the way that professional dentist teeth whitening trays are. Dentist teeth whitening trays should fit your mouth to allow the whitening agent to reach the entire surface of your teeth.
Safety. With your dentist, teeth whitening agents will be monitored. Your dentist can apply protective coatings to your gum tissue to shield it from the bleaching agents, keeping your mouth healthy.
Two Options for Safe and Effective Dentist Teeth Whitening:
Teeth Whitening By Dentists: At Home
You will receive dentist teeth whitening trays to fit over your teeth and provide you with a peroxide-based bleaching agent with which to fill the trays. The trays are worn for a couple of hours each day. Depending upon the shade of the teeth and desired results, bleaching may continue for up to four weeks and requires no further visits to the dentist. Dentist teeth whitening at-home is easy and convenient.
Teeth Whitening By Dentists: In Office
A visit to the dentist for teeth
generally takes 30 to 60 minutes. While this option renders the fastest, most dramatic results, it may require more than one visit to the dentist. Teeth whitening agents are applied directly to the teeth and the bleaching process is expedited by using laser technology.
