Information about Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has become commonplace in the US. In fact, it’s very easy to find a wide variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening products in your local drug store. But before you choose an OTC product, remember that nothing works as well as professional teeth whitening.
There are a few different methods of teeth whitening that we offer our Austin, TX area patients, but a home system is one of the most popular. With a home whitening product, you can use the custom-made trays that we create for you here in our office, along with our powerful whitening solution, to perform the whitening process any time you’d like to in the privacy of your own home.
Professional whitening can produce dramatic results and leave you with a whiter smile than you ever imagined possible. But it is important to remember that whitening isn’t for everyone. People who are sensitive to hot and cold food and beverages might find that whitening worsens that sensitivity. Although the discomfort typically goes away a short time after whitening, the process might be somewhat uncomfortable for those patients. It’s also important to know that whitening does not change the color of crowns or other dental restorations.
Whitening doesn’t last forever, and you’ll have to repeat the process periodically in order to keep your teeth white. It also helps to avoid habits that can stain your teeth, such as smoking, or drinking too much coffee, tea or red wine.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
Setting up patients with a home teeth whitening system typically requires you to visit our Austin, TX office twice. During the first visit, we will create clear plastic trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. Then, during the second visit, we’ll make sure that your new trays fit properly. We’ll also explain how to use the trays and the whitening solution so you can do it yourself at home.
