Teeth Whitening in Galveston, TX

Causes of Tooth Discoloration

There are multiple reasons why you can develop tooth stains and discoloration: 

  • Foods and drinks: Deeply pigmented foods and beverages, like red wine, soy sauce, and tomato sauces, can stain your teeth.
  • Tobacco use: Smoking, vaping, or using other tobacco products can turn teeth yellow. The nicotine in tobacco products dyes the tooth enamel.
  • Dental trauma: A dental injury can change the color of a tooth. Hits to the tooth can damage the blood vessels in the tooth chamber, which can change tooth color. Tooth chips or cracks can also uncover the dentin in the tooth.
  • Aging: Over time, the outer layer of the tooth, called the tooth enamel, wears away. This uncovers the darker underlayer called dentin.

Am I a Candidate for Tooth Whitening Treatment?

We will examine your smile before the teeth whitening treatment. Our office will take dental X-rays to find signs of tooth decay and gum disease. These problems can affect your dental health.

We will recommend teeth whitening if you are in good oral health but want to change the appearance of your teeth. 

Teeth Whitening in Galveston, TX

We provide in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. These treatments are customized to you.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Our office uses BriteSmile and Zoom! chairside whitening to bleach teeth. These treatments use a safe whitening gel and low-intensity light to activate the gel. This combination allows us to provide you with teeth that are 6-10 shades whiter in about an hour.

Professional in-office teeth whitening is effective because it uses gels with active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide. Teeth whitening can lift stains from the enamel in just one office visit. 

Take-Home Teeth Whitening 

We use tray whitening systems like BritSmile and Zoom! to whiten teeth. You can receive your take-home whitening trays in two office visits. During your first visit, we will make a dental impression. With this impression, we’ll craft custom whitening trays that you can use repeatedly.

You will return to our office, where we will provide whitening trays and whitening gel. At home, you will first brush and floss your teeth. Then, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the trays.

We will provide instructions on how long to wear your whitening trays daily. These instructions are customized to your sensitivity and your desired results. Take-home whitening can change the shade of your teeth by four to eight shades.
