Teeth Whitening Austin, TX
We offer many common cosmetic dentistry procedures, inlcuding in office and take home teeth whitening services. Learn more about our teeth whitening offerings:
A two hour in-office procedure where the dentist uses a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel oxygenates the enamel and dentin of the tooth to break down stains and discoloration. With Zoom Whitening, the results show immediately. Up to three days following your Zoom procedure, it is necessary to abstain from any food or drinks that can stain your teeth like coffee, sodas, blueberries, etc. Then, all that is needed to keep your teeth looking their whitest is brushing, flossing, and using the included Nite White gel for occasional touch-ups. Side effects of the procedure may include minor tingling sensations immediately after the whitening session. This discomfort usually dissipates within 24 hours. With proper maintenance, Zoom whitening will yield excellent results that can last for many years.
The take-home whitening system consists of custom trays to fit specifically to your teeth and a take home bleach kit. The bleach gel is applied dot by dot onto the trays and can be worn for up to two hours daily. The bleaching process will be different for every person, but typically results can be seen within 1-2 weeks of bleaching. It is recommended to have your teeth professionally cleaned before starting a whitening system to ensure the maximum benefit from the bleach gel.
If you have ever wondered how teeth whitening works, it uses peroxide to remove the extrinsic stains, stains on the tooth enamel, from your teeth. Extrinsic stains are generally caused by certain foods, soda, coffee, and even smoking.
