Have you noticed that your teeth look more yellow or stained than they used to? Do you feel like your teeth are brown, dingy, or dull-looking, and you want to get that beautiful smile back? Our teeth stain as we age and it can make you appear older than you really are. People associate white teeth with youth and health. White teeth can also give you self-confidence when talking to people at work or socially.
Our patients of all ages appreciate a beautiful smile. Professional teeth whitening is still the easiest, least expensive way to improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you work in sales or you just started dating again, looking your best is important. Teeth whitening can give you that extra boost of self-esteem in professional and social situations.
Professional Take Home Teeth Whitening Systems
At Nederland Family Dental, we have tried it all when it comes to teeth whitening. We looked everywhere to find the most effective teeth whitening system, and the one that worked best for our patients, provided outstanding results, and was easiest to use was our custom deep bleaching system.
After a consultation with G. Whitney Gomez DDS or James Howell DDS, we will take impressions of your teeth in order to make your custom whitening trays. You can keep your trays forever and clean them with cool (not hot) water and a toothbrush after each use. With proper care, your trays will last many years for touch-ups.
Once we make your custom trays, we will determine the best professional whitening system to use for you. Whitening gel comes in different strengths, and which one will work best depends on your desired outcome and the health of your teeth. For people with sensitive teeth, we have lower strength gel.
We take before-and-after shades so you can see how many shades your teeth lightened with your professional whitening kit.
The best part about our custom system is that you can use it when it works for you. Whether you are cleaning your house, running errands, or doing paperwork, you choose your time to whiten.
Professional Teeth Whitening Is Safe
When performed under the supervision of a dentist, teeth whitening is completely safe. The most common side effects include tender gums and tooth sensitivity. This can be especially challenging for people with recession. If you experience teeth sensitivity, you may need to cut back on the frequency with which you whiten. If your gums hurt, cutting back on the amount of gel you use is a helpful solution.
Your teeth stain more easily during the whitening process. Avoiding staining foods like coffee, tea, and red wine can help you achieve better results.
