Which Teeth Whitening Option Is Right For You?

Did you know that we offer not one, but two different teeth whitening treatments? Unlike store bought systems, these provide dramatic results that last for months to come. In today’s blog, your El Paso, TX, dentists are talking about how we remove discoloration with professional teeth whitening, both at home and in our office!

The Factors Behind Your Teeth Stains

A number of factors in our daily life could lead to unsightly teeth stains. For example, drinking beverages with dark pigments and tannins and could discolor the teeth, such as tea, red wine, coffee, and soda. Using tobacco products could discolor the smile, as could a diet high in sugar and starch, which creates plaque that makes the stains more visible. Understanding the causes of your teeth stains means we not only choose the most appropriate teeth whitening treatment option, but that our team can offer tips for keeping your teeth brighter for much longer periods.

Brighter Smiles in One Visit

If you need results quickly before an event, such as graduation, first date, or a job interview, then we can offer stunning results in as little as one to two hours. Our in-office teeth whitening system is simple. We will apply a protective coating for the lips and gums, and then apply a bleaching gel to the teeth. A special light is then used to activate the gel and begin breaking up the teeth stains. We repeat the process until your smile is several shades brighter, all in one sitting.

Whitening Teeth at Home

We also have an option you can use at home, one that is designed to tackle more severe teeth stains and offer stunning results, all while limiting the risk of sensitive teeth afterward. To begin, you will drop by the office just long enough for us to create a set of custom plastic trays, which we send home with you. We also send a powerful bleaching gel as well. When you return home, you add the gel to these trays and wear them for a specific set of time each day. After a week to ten days, your teeth could be up to eight shades brighter. You can even keep the trays and any remaining gel for touch-ups as needed down the road.
