At Texas Dental Center, one of the most popular ways that people use to transform their smile is through teeth whitening. Our patients are often overwhelmed by the sheer amount of products available at the store. They often promise results that they do not deliver on fully. Whitening toothpaste and mouthwashes require more exposure time than is generally given during a typical brushing, whitening strips are generically made so they can cause uneven whitening results, and generic trays with whitening gel can spread the material to the gums and cause damage.
For fast and dependable whitening, a professional teeth whitening from your dentist is the best way to go. Our use of the Zoom! Teeth whitening system allows us to whiten out patient’s teeth in just one session! An in-office treatment takes the stress off of your back and allows you to just sit back and relax. After the advanced whitening gel is applied to the teeth, Zoom’s special blue LED lamp is used to speed up the whitening process. This procedure can be repeated during a session depending on the amount of whitening desired.
For continuous follow-up, a custom tray for home whitening purposes can be created. The custom tray is much more beneficial to the generic style since it ensures consistent coverage of the at-home whitening gel. This is a smart method of continuing to keep your teeth dazzlingly white after the in-office method.
