What Is the Best Way to Whiten Your Teeth?

Posted By: Humble Dentistry

Do you have yellow or dark stained teeth? Does your smile look dull and less radiant than it did years ago? If so, professional teeth whitening at Humble Dentistry can remove stains and brighten your pearly whites. Dr. Robert Appel and our cosmetic dental team can turn your smile from dull to dazzling using in-office teeth whitening, at-home teeth whitening, or a combination of the two. 

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. DIY or Store-Bought Whitening   

Unlike whitening kits you can buy at the store or online, professional teeth whitening is personalized to your oral health needs and aesthetic goals. Your dentist considers your ideal tooth shade, lifestyle, tooth and gum sensitivity, budget, type of staining, and more. 

Store-bought teeth whitening kits and DIY whiteners are usually generic, as they are produced for the masses. These generic kits and bleaches can be harsh on your enamel and oral tissues, resulting in enamel damage, tooth sensitivity, and even chemical burns on the gums or lips. The best way to whiten your teeth is by visiting a cosmetic dentist or under the supervision of a dental professional. 

In-Office Teeth Whitening at Humble Dentistry 

If you have stains on your teeth or a dull smile, we can whiten your teeth in a single dental appointment at our Humble, TX dental office. Dr. Appel and our team are gentle and meticulous with our treatments, including teeth whitening, so that you can expect even, thorough results every time. We also use rubber dams to protect the gums, lips, and cheeks from the bleaching solution. Our professional-grade whitener is safe, gentle on sensitive teeth, and provides exceptional results. 

At-Home Teeth Whitening for Stellar Results 

Humble Dentistry also offers at-home custom teeth whitening under the instruction of Dr. Appel. This option is popular because it’s a fast and convenient way to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home. We begin the process by taking impressions of your teeth and using a shade guide to determine your ideal smile. We then create custom-made whitening trays based on your smile’s impressions for a perfect fit. 

For take-home whitening, we recommend wearing your trays with the accompanying gel for 1–2 hours for 14 days before we measure your final results with a shade guide. Then, you can do touch-ups as needed to maintain your white, bright smile. Before you embark on your at-home whitening journey, Dr. Appel will provide detailed instructions on whitening at home.
