Teeth Whitening

a woman smiles | cosmetic dentist humble txPart of having good oral health is feeling confident in the appearance of your teeth. If there is something that you would like to change, whether that's teeth that need to be replaced or you want to improve the shade, shape, or spacing of your teeth, we offer the full scope of modern cosmetic dentistry to help patients achieve a smile they feel proud of.

Some of the cosmetic treatments we offer include:

Tooth-colored restorations – The need for metal-based restorations has declined due to advancements in materials available that match your natural teeth. We offer tooth-colored fillings, bonding, crowns, veneers, bridges, and dental implants that enhance the beauty of your smile.

Teeth whitening – Professional teeth whitening bleaches away years of stains to give you a brighter and more youthful appearance. Humble Dentistry offers both in-office and take-home whitening options.

Full smile makeovers – For damaged or severely worn teeth, combining cosmetic dentistry options gives patients a whole new look that enhances their oral health and their appearance.

Porcelain veneers – Veneers completely cover the front of your teeth and correct a number of esthetic concerns such as gaps, wear, chips, color, and irregularly shaped teeth.

Today’s cosmetic dentistry options provide solutions for every smile and budget. Contact us for a consultation with Dr. Robert Appel and discover the possibilities for your own smile. We look forward to hearing from you.

What Is In Teeth Whitening? 

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.

Will Teeth Whitening Lift Stains?

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.

Teeth Whitening is Safe for Your Smile

We frequently get this question and the answer is no, tooth whitening will not damage your teeth. As with many of the treatments we offer, we work hard to stay up to date with the most relevant research to guide our recommendations.

A 2008 study from the Journal of Dental Materials looked at the effect of strips, trays, and in-office bleaching products on the enamel surface of teeth. The product tested was Opalaescence by Ultradent, which is the same product we offer to our patients. The results found that all versions tested improved the whiteness of the teeth without impacting the hardness of the enamel, nor did they impact the surface roughness.
