Oftentimes, one of the first things people see when they meet us is our teeth. Unfortunately, many factors can play into us having less than a bright, white, healthy smile. Drinking coffee, tea, and soda; smoking cigarettes, and more all can play a role into darkening our smiles and making our teeth appear stained. This can be a source of anxiety for many people causing them to smile less and feel insecure when talking. Instead of worrying about your smile, contact Cosmetic Dental! We know how important having a healthy and bright smile is to your life! This is why we offer affordable teeth bleaching treatments in Houston!
Bleaching your teeth is one of the most affordable cosmetic remedies available to enhance a stained smile. It can be done at home or at your dentist’s office, using a variety of products and techniques. But even if you are only considering an bleaching your teeth on your own, it’s better to have a dental exam first to make sure your discoloration is not due to a condition in need of treatment. Your dentist can also help you choose the most effective whitening method for your particular situation so that you are making the right choices for your smile.
When you decide to bleaching your teeth it will be a quick and simple process of applying bleach solutions to each one of your stained teeth .Bleaching solutions are best on colored stains, but may not work at all on gray discoloration. It’s important to keep in mind that bonding material and fillings cannot be whitened with bleach. If you have these restorations in your mouth, you should consider how your teeth will look if the natural parts become whiter and the bonding stays the same. This is important for preserving your smile!
Bleaching your teeth is a noninvasive and safe solution for brightening your smile! This is because the chemicals that are used in the process attack the organic molecules and do not materially affect the mineral structure of your stained tooth. There are tons of resources and studies that support the overall safety of whitening by bleaching, though it’s possible to experience some temporary side effects such as tooth sensitivity. Our dental team will take all necessary steps to protect your teeth and minimize your potential for the complications that so often result in tooth sensitivity.
At Cosmetic Dental we know how important knowing what chemicals are going into your mouth are to you for your health. The bleaches used most often in teeth-whitening products are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Carbamide peroxide is typically considered more appropriate for home-whitening products because it is a more stable compound that will last much longer than the ones we use in-office. It can also be left on the teeth for longer periods with less risk of sensitivity. Professional bleaching solutions containing hydrogen peroxide, a faster-acting bleach, can lighten teeth up to 10 shades in about an hour, though some people may need several treatments to achieve the desired level of whitening. If you are considering having your teeth bleached, come into Cosmetic Dental today! We will gladly answer any questions you may have and get you the bright, white smile you have been dreaming about!
