The benefits of whiter teeth go beyond a cleaner looking and more attractive smile — a brighter, whiter smile can significantly increase your confidence and self-esteem. And when you feel confident in your smile, you tend to take better care of it to keep it looking beautiful.
During your whitening visit, Dr. Kunjumon will fit you with a set of custom-made trays and give you a supply of professional-strength whitening gel to take home. Simply insert the gel into the trays, wear them as prescribed, and you’ll be showing off dramatically whiter teeth in no time!
There are a variety of whitening products on the market today, from inexpensive drugstore kits to dentist-dispensed, professional-strength kits. While they all provide whitening benefits, those given to you by your League City dentist have better whitening results overall than their over-the-counter counterparts.
While teeth whitening is not permanent, it is typical for your results to last anywhere from six months to several years if you take care of your new smile. If you drink a lot of teeth-staining drinks or food (such as coffee, wine, etc.), your results will not last as long.
Most individuals will be able to benefit from teeth whitening. However, there are always exceptions and your specific dental situation will determine the answer. It’s good to keep in mind that restorations (such as crowns, veneers, etc.) will not lighten. Contact Touchstone Dentistry to schedule a consultation to find out if whitening is an option or other ways to improve the brightness of your smile.
Teeth whitening is safe! Many studies have shown teeth whitening has no negative effect on enamel or a tooth’s nerves.
No, any sensitivity caused by whitening is temporary and generally goes away within one to two days. After that, your tooth sensitivity will be the same as it was before your whitening treatment.
