Everybody’s teeth get stained or yellow. This is the result of factors such as tobacco use, food and drink consumption (such as coffee, tea, or wine), childhood medications and illnesses, improper hygiene, or natural yellowing over time. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the top feature that people want to improve in their smile is having whiter teeth. So, it follows that teeth whitening procedures are becoming more popular. At Sweetwater Dental Studio, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening services in Sugar Land, TX.
Also called chairside bleaching, in-office treatments utilize the highest concentration of bleach, making them the quickest method of whitening teeth. They are administered by a dentist, normally within one office visit. For this treatment, the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth and treated with heat, a special light, or a laser. Results can be seen after one treatment lasting 30 to 60 minutes, though more dramatic results can be achieved over several visits.
Dentist-supervised take-home treatments consist of a mouth guard-like tray that delivers the whitening gel. At Sweetwater Dental Studio, we use the Venus White brand of products, which offers the advantage of resulting in reduced tooth sensitivity, a common side effect of other tooth whitening systems. To use the take-home treatment, the patient will first be fitted for the customized bleaching trays, made by the dentist office. The gel is available in three different strengths; the dentist will select the one most suitable for each case. To use the system, the gel is applied to the trays, which are worn on the teeth. Treatment times will be provided by the dentist, as they vary depending on the individual and strength of gel being used. Once finished, the tray will be removed and any remaining gel on the teeth can be brushed away.
