Tackle Tough Dental Stains with Professional Whitening

teeth whitening DallasAre you embarrassed by stains on your teeth? Perhaps you’ve given store-bought whitening products like strips and toothpaste a try but saw little, if any, results. The best way to tackle tough dental stains is through professional whitening. Professional teeth whitening treatments are powerful enough to lift deep stains to reveal a vibrant, white smile.

Our cosmetic dentist offers take-home whitening systems that utilize prescription-grade ingredients for predictable and effective results. This means you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home while you clean house or watch television.

Why Store-Bought Products Fall Short

Teeth whitening products found in grocery stores and pharmacies cannot lighten permanent stains. Their formulas are not strong enough to penetrate the enamel surface of teeth. These teeth whitening products tend to contain abrasives, which can lift some surface stains but do pose a threat to tooth enamel. On top of permanently damaging tooth enamel, these abrasive ingredients contribute to tooth sensitivity.

How Take-Home Teeth Whitening Works

Those receiving take-home kits from our practice can enjoy powerful whitening at their convenience. Take-home kits contain prescription-strength bleaching solutions and custom trays that are worn over teeth. It’s important to follow teeth whitening instructions exactly as directed to see optimal results.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is safe and effective. With proper use, a take-home kit could lighten a person’s smile eight to ten shades brighter. Since harsh abrasives are not used, professional teeth whitening does not cause permanent tooth sensitivity or enamel damage.

Whitening your teeth has positive effects on your appearance and your emotional wellbeing. Our patients report a boost in their confidence and self-esteem after lightening their smiles. We recommend that you maintain your results by practicing thorough oral hygiene, receiving routine cleanings, and avoiding teeth-staining foods/beverages.
