Vibrant Smiles in Cypress, TX
Like many aspects of the aging process, we often don’t notice that the color of our teeth has changed until we look at pictures and see how bright our smile used to look. Unfortunately, many of our favorite foods and drinks leave trace stains on our enamel and, as the years pass, those stains accumulate and leave our smiles looking dull and yellowish. While daily brushing and regular visits to your dentist for professional cleanings can keep the worst of the stains at bay, more proactive methods are needed to return your smile to its former brilliance.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening offers an affordable, long lasting, and conservative solution for stained teeth. By removing the stains that occur as a result of foods and drinks, you can enjoy a smile that looks younger, vibrant, and healthy. We accomplish this with our in-office, and home-based, KöR Whitening products.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Why should you see a dentist for teeth whitening when many products are available in stores? Unfortunately, many store bought systems contain a very low level of peroxide, so the results aren’t as noticeable, and don’t last as long. In addition, many people who use over-the-counter strips and whitening gels, complain about tooth and gum sensitivity. With professional teeth whitening from Councill Dental Group, you can enjoy better results and a smile brightened by multiple shades. Benefits of professional whitening include:
- Dramatic results, often brightening teeth by multiple shades
- Less sensitivity than store bought whiteners
- Longer lasting results
- Both in-office and at-home options available
Obtain a Shining, Confident Smile
To help you recapture your most confident smile, we offer products and techniques to brighten stained or dull teeth. Based on their expertise in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Councill and Dr. Glass have chosen KöR whitening for a comfortable and cost-effective route to a brighter smile.
The difference that KöR whitening makes lies in the results. Utilizing a combination of in-office and at-home procedures, KöR involves a comfortable, quick, and highly-effective treatment at our office, followed by a take-home treatment that you can apply from the comfort of your own home. At home, you will wear a set of comfortable and custom-made tracks, which you fill with a powerful bleaching gel. Together, the duel procedures are designed to erase teeth stains and brighten tooth structure more effectively than most other professional teeth whitening treatments. The procedure allows the teeth to better absorb oxygen, returning the teeth to a more youthful appearance. With routine dental maintenance, you can expect the results to last for a long time.
Who Qualifies for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a conservative cosmetic dentistry treatment similar to tooth bonding and contouring. Anyone over the age of 14 with extrinsic teeth stains, which form on the surface and are often caused by foods, drinks, or tobacco use, can benefit from teeth whitening. However, intrinsic teeth stains, which form below the surface as a result of medication or injury, may require more extensive cosmetic treatment, such as porcelain veneers. If you currently have crowns or veneers, teeth whitening cannot remove stains from them. Instead, you may need to replace the restorations.
