Your Options For Professional Teeth Whitening

Cleveland, TX, dentist offers professional teeth whitening services

Do you have a special event coming up that you want to look your best for? You may have the perfect outfit and accessories picked out, but you may not feel the most confident if your pearly whites do not look as bright. To improve the appearance of your smile, Cleveland Family Dentistry in Texas offers professional teeth whitening services. In today’s blog, we will discuss the options available for this treatment.

Brighten Your Smile In One Session

For patients looking to accomplish this in a short time frame, we offer professional teeth whitening in our office. During this appointment, we will apply a bleaching solution to a silicone tray and activate it with a special light. In less than 30 minutes, you will have a visibly brighter grin. Following the appointment, you may have some sensitivity, but it should not last long. To help maintain these results, you will also be given a touch-up pen to use when necessary.

A Personalized Kit To Take Home

If you prefer to do this by yourself, we can create a tailored solution for you to bring home. This will include the bleach and customized trays. You will wear this every day for the time specified by your dentist. After about two weeks, you will have a stain-free smile. This professional treatment is safer than generic store-bought strips that contain harmful ingredients because it is personalized to your specific needs. Before beginning the at-home or in-office treatment, you will need a consultation with your dentist to ensure this is a good option for your needs.

Restoring Your Smile

In some cases, the problems with your pearly whites may be more than a visual concern. For patients who have cavities, or broken, or chipped teeth, cosmetic treatment will not be able to improve these concerns. Instead, your dentist may suggest a restorative treatment. This could include a filling, crown, or more depending on the concern. Severe decay can make your teeth appear brown. The bleach solution will not be able to remove this problem, because it is not caused by staining. Instead, your dentist may need to remove the cavity and fill it with composite resin. If the problem is more severe, a root canal or extraction may be necessary.

A tooth that is yellow or brown may also be due to trauma. This may occur after an injury such as breaking or chipping it. If this has happened to you, you must have the area examined and treated promptly with a crown to avoid infection.
