How does teeth whitening in Humble, TX work?
If you have yellow or brown tooth stains, we offer professional teeth whitening in Humble, TX. This affordable cosmetic treatment is a great therapy if you have a wedding or job promotion on the horizon.
The active ingredient in most tooth whitening products is peroxide. It is available in strips, as a gel worn in a custom-fitted tray that fits over the teeth, or applied directly to the teeth in our dental office. When it comes in contact with the teeth, the peroxide absorbs into the enamel and helps to break apart substances that cause staining. The bleaching products are available in different strengths — the stronger the bleaching product, the faster the results.
Certain stains can be more challenging to bleach than others and may require higher strengths or longer treatment times. Any existing fillings, crowns, or veneers will not change color. Age and the initial color of the teeth may also impact the effectiveness of teeth whitening in Humble, TX.
Your dentist in Humble, TX can assess your oral health and tooth color to help you decide whether teeth whitening is right and safe for you. Contact our dental office today to schedule your whitening exam and chat!
