Over the years, our teeth go through hundreds of ups and downs. They’re busy on a daily basis, which means they constantly come in contact with foods, drinks, and more that all have the potential to cause some severe damage to your smile. The most common issue that patients run into is the discoloration of their teeth. When your enamel wears down, it allows your dentin (the core of your teeth) show through, displaying its yellow colored substance. This is what makes our teeth have that yellow tint in the first place!
Thankfully, with the help of our available teeth whitening methods, patients are able to get back their bright white smile faster than they think.
Teeth whitening methods
There are some popular options that patients can choose from to brighten their smile with the help of your cosmetic dentist in Victoria TX. Our first option is in-office teeth whitening, where we carefully monitor the amount of high-concentration peroxide gel that’s applied to your teeth to give them that extra shine you’ve been looking for. This treatment is completed in a short amount of time, getting you in and out in about an hour.
Another available method is the use of take-home whitening kits. While these are available at your local store, they may not always give you the results you’re looking for, especially if you don’t know what kind of kit to buy. The strength of the gel in the take-home boxes are lower than what’s used during our in-office treatment, but this is to ensure that your teeth and gums are still protected and the gel can be worn for longer periods of time whenever convenient for you.
