Everyone wants a beautiful smile, and the procedures for whitening teeth are becoming more popular every day. People drinking their fill of wine, coffee, and tea have caused stained teeth to be on the rise, so there is a significant need to find a way to bring those teeth back to being white.
At Town Center Dental in Cedar Park, we use passive tray whitening to make teeth white and your smile much more attractive. It has been found to be the best way for our patients to whiten their teeth in their home, at a time convenient for them.
Teeth whitening has been found to be effective and safe. To complete the process will take 3-4 weeks of daily or every other day use. Here at Town Center Dental, we recommend the tray method for most of our patients who have stained teeth. There are some discolorations, like those caused by tetracycline, that may take several months to see a significant improvement. To maintain the whitened teeth, using the trays should be done every few months.
Let us know here at Town Center Dental in Cedar Park if you are interested in this type of teeth whitening, and our dentists will be able to examine you and tell you if you are a good patient for this specific procedure.
We also offer laser teeth whitening here in Town Center Dental in Cedar Park, and it is the most expensive type of teeth whitening. The laser method lifts the stain a lot faster. One advantage of using the laser method is that it can be used to whiten one tooth at a time. It is helpful if you have one tooth that is more discolored than the teeth surrounding it.
No matter what form of teeth whitening you use it can cause you temporary pain and sensitivity, and especially for the people who already have problems with teeth sensitivity. If this is the case, your dentist might prescribe a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication before your first whitening session with him.
Teeth whitened by the laser can last for six months or as long as several years at a time.
