What Is Whitening?
Tooth whitening is a popular oral cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of stains on teeth. The outer layer of a tooth is called enamel, but enamel may be damaged over time. There is a thin coating called pellicle that may form on the enamel each day. Pellicle and the pores of the enamel may trap stains or other particles that causing yellowing or darkening of teeth.
What Could I Expect from the Process?
Tooth whitening is performed in simple outpatient treatments in the convenience of our Texas office. A treatment session begins with cleaning the teeth to remove surface bacteria or other substances from your teeth. A specialized substance is applied to the teeth to protect the integrity of your teeth. The whitening agent is then applied on the teeth, and it is left to set.
Tooth whitening treatments may take a few hours, but you should be able to return to your normal daily activities! Results will vary for each person, but these cosmetic dental treatments typically provide immediate results. To achieve and maintain the best results, a series of regular treatments is often recommended. Our professional staff will work with you to develop the plan best for you, and good oral hygiene may help you preserve your brighter smile!
Could I Benefit from Tooth Whitening?
Whitening treatments may be performed for most generally healthy individuals. It may be appealing to those who are concerned about the natural tone or color of their teeth. These treatments may be performed on individuals whose teeth have been negatively impacted by:
- Drinking dark liquids (i.e. coffee, soda, tea, red wine)
- Poor oral hygiene habits
- Tobacco use
It is important to keep in mind this treatment does not provide health benefits for teeth. It is intended to provide cosmetic benefits for teeth, which may provide a boost in confidence! To determine if you could benefit from this treatment, we recommend a consultation with our professionals in Lubbock. They will evaluate your teeth, discuss your goals for treatment, and work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
