While our patients’ needs and esthetic desires vary, the most commonly requested enhancement is teeth whitening. Almost everyone would love to have a whiter, brighter smile.
The great news is that once a thorough examination is completed to ensure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, there is a multitude of options to choose from, some of which can you can find in your local pharmacy or supermarket dental-care aisle.
However, you will enjoy the highest degree of long-lasting success by investing in professional, in-office, dental whitening procedures. Your dentist in Austin can also provide options and advice if you should encounter any problems with sensitivity.
Beautiful Smiles Start with Health
At the heart of a dazzling bright and white smile are healthy gum tissues. Continuing care visits with our hygienists are required at intervals dictated by your level of bacterial activity and buildup. These harmful bacteria and hard calculus around and under your gum tissue will cause inflammation, staining, and bleeding. Additionally, it is essential that you be committed to an impeccable home-care routine of daily brushing and flossing your teeth. An excellent routine at home combined with professional whitening treatments can give you the brighter more beautiful smile you desire.
Our Teeth Whitening Methods
Custom, Tray-Based, Tooth Whitening Gel System
This smile whitening system is designed for use at home. A specially formulated whitening gel is placed into custom-designed trays fabricated from molds of your teeth. The trays are worn for up to an hour over a period of days, determined by the degree of whitening desired and the internal color of your teeth.
If you’d prefer whiteness without the wait, our in-office systems might be what you have been looking for.
This in-office, chemically activated, whitening gel treatment is also applied in trays fabricated from molds of your teeth. Due to the strength of this formula, offering results in less than an hour, this procedure requires direct supervision by one of our trained, clinical team members.
Glo In-Office Whitening System
Glo is our most advanced whitening method. During whitening, we carefully apply whitening agents to your teeth and activate them with the Glo light source. This process lightens your teeth up to eight shades while protecting your dental enamel.
Depending on your lifestyle and sensitivity, tooth whitening is not recommended for everyone. We invite you to visit with Dr. Steinberg, Dr. Farahani, and members of our clinical team, to discuss what may be appropriate for you.
