Professional Teeth Whitening In Tomball, TX
Your smile can become less bright and your confidence can decrease if your teeth have yellowed. Poor oral hygiene, old age, and tooth frailty brought on by a combination of a number of various conditions can all contribute to discolored teeth.
Your smile might look noticeably more radiant with as little as one session of professional teeth whitening. A gel containing hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth during the procedure, and the treatment is then activated to produce oxygen ions. They then flood your teeth and break down the discoloration on both the interior and the exterior of the stains. This procedure is proven to be safe and effective, and the majority of patients report feeling only minimal to no discomfort throughout it.

There are various options to help whiten your teeth—see which option is best.
Is teeth whitening safe?
In general teeth whitening is considered to be safe. Professional teeth whitening treatments are the safest option for your teeth. If you are using at-home teeth whitening solutions, it’s important to be careful not to overdo it. For abrasive whiteners, it’s important to not use them too often or too aggressively as this can damage your enamel. If using chemical whiteners, use strips that have a lower concentration of the chemical, and don’t leave them on for too long. This can cause tooth sensitivity and discomfort of the gums.
How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
