Whiter Teeth in Houston, TX with Professional Teeth Whitening

What’s more attractive than a white, youthful smile? Yet as adults, our teeth rarely remain as bright as we’d like them to without professional assistance. For that reason, help is available at WellSmiles.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Houston

Teeth whitening performed by a dentist in Houston is an effective way to brighten your smile safely. In addition, it is the most affordable cosmetic dental treatment out there. Depending on the bleaching method, whitening results can be dramatic: for example, professional whitening at WellSmiles can brighten teeth up to 10 shades whiter in just one hour.

Professional teeth whitening at WellSmiles works quickly and protects soft tissues and root surfaces better than OTC bleaching products. Having a dental exam in Houston before starting any whitening treatment is non-negotiable. This important first step will ensure your staining or discoloration is not the result of an oral health condition.

Teeth Whitening at WellSmiles

Professional whitening in Houston involves bleaching gels with a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide that only a qualified dental care provider can administer.

  • In-Office Dental Whitening — This process offers the fastest whitening results with the most powerful bleaching solutions available. Your gums and tooth surfaces are first covered with a protective barrier. A thin plastic retractor will hold your cheeks and lips away from your teeth as your Houston dentist applies the professional-grade gel. The whitening agent will be allowed to penetrate for about an hour. Once the gel is removed, the results are instant.
  • At-Home Whitening Kits— Take home whitening is also a powerful way to lighten your smile, but it will take longer to achieve the desired results. You will fill the custom-made bleaching trays with peroxide gel and position the device over your teeth. Typically, the trays are left in place for about an hour each session.

Caring for Your Newly Whitened Teeth

There are steps you can take to extend your bleaching results. First, keep up your usual brushing and flossing routine every day, and maintain your regular schedule of professional teeth cleanings at WellSmiles. Avoid heavily pigmented foods and drinks including coffee, tea, and red wine. If you use tobacco products, use your freshly brightened smile as an impetus to drop the habit. A periodic touchup, either at home or at WellSmiles, can keep your smile bright and beautiful for years.
