Teeth whitening agents
Some commercially available “whitening toothpaste” can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have harsh substances that can affect your tooth’s enamel.
Similarly, whitening agents change the color of your teeth but are effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains. These products might not work on severely discolored teeth. These also do not work on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding, and tooth-colored fillings. Therefore, whitening performed at our office in Spring Texas is the most effective and safest method.
Our dentists also provide teeth whitening for home so that you may get the whitening process performed as per your comfort. The dentist prepares a tray with whitening gel as per the size of your teeth. He/she also gives detailed instructions on how the procedure should be followed at home. This process takes a longer duration, maybe from few days to few weeks. However, for those who feel comfortable doing the procedure at home, this option is a preferred choice.
How to take care?
Though teeth whitening is a useful procedure to make your teeth shiny, however, it does not suit everyone. Your dentist will be in a better position to suggest what a better option is looking at your teeth condition. Visit our office in Spring Texas today and check if this is the one for you.
