Austin Teeth Whitening Dentist
If you have stained or discolored teeth, you may feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your smile. Fortunately, a simple teeth whitening procedure can help to brighten your smile by eliminating unsightly yellowing or tinting. This safe, tested method can whiten teeth by one or several shades, and a single problematic tooth can be singled out as needed to give you a lasting, shining smile that you can show off with confidence.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Teeth whitening is an effective method for lightening stained or discolored teeth. We use teeth bleaching products that are capable of making your teeth up to 12 shades lighter, and the treatment can be adjusted to match your shade preference. The most common form of teeth whitening, known as chairside bleaching, typically involves:
- Applying a protective gel or rubber shield to protect sensitive gum tissue
- Applying dental bleach to the tooth or teeth
- Shining a dental light on the teeth to boost the bleaching process
Depending on the condition of your teeth and how many shades lighter you would like them to be, you may require one or multiple bleaching sessions. Teeth whitening yields the best results with yellow or brown teeth that have been discolored or stained by coffee, tea, or smoking, though teeth with gray stains can also be lightened to an extent.
