Let’s Take Care Of Those Tooth Stains

Houston Teeth BleachingThe effectiveness of teeth whitening depends partly on the types of stains. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we get consistently good results.

There are two basic types of tooth stains.

  • Extrinsic stains are the simplest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages, as well as tobacco. Time also takes a toll.
  • Intrinsic tooth stains appear from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove, but it is possible.

We have a couple of options for our patients. The Kör Whitening System is a proven method that can lighten teeth over several weeks. We set you up with custom trays made from impressions of your teeth. The trays hold high-potency whitening gel against your teeth.

Alternately, we offer an in-office whitening treatment that can be completed in a single appointment.

At the Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, professional teeth whitening can transform your smile and take years off of your appearance. It’s just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. Call to schedule an appointment today!

What Can Veneers Do For Your Smile?

porcelain veneers cost North Tomball

Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth – or maybe even a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit veneers to go over the front part of your teeth, giving them an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are so effective they’ve even been called “instant orthodontics.” Technically, of course, they are not orthodotnics – but they’re very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

To find out more about porcelain veneers, schedule an appointment with us at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston. We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry. Call our office today!

Your Perfect Smile Is Only A Few Dental Visits Away

Houston lowest price teeth bleaching

What does it take to really change the way you look? Long hours at the gym? Expensive trips to a top salon? What about teeth whitening from the Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston?

You may not like going to the dentist, but you will love the results when we help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, but the dramatic results never fail to impress.

We can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:

  1. Bleaching in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.
  2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home, the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects, so it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Also, there are many at-home whiteners available, and your dentist can direct you to the best ones.
  3. Toothpaste with whitening properties. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemical or polishing agents. These will provide additional stain removal which complements the surface stain removal offered by all toothpastes.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, teeth whitning is just one of our cosmetic dentistry procedures we use to improve smiles every day. We also offer a wide range of general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today to find out what we can do for your smile!

How Can You Improve Your Smile Quickly?

Porcelain VeneersWith porcelain veneers from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, you can revamp your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Porcelain veneers are glass-like, wafer-thin covers that are attached to the front of your teeth. Porcelain has been used in dentistry for many years because no other restorative material is such an excellent match for natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is translucent and can be matched to the color of any tooth. It is stronger than enamel and resists stains.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are so effective they’ve even been called “instant orthodontics.” Technically, of course, they are not orthodotnics – but they’re very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

Porcelain veneers are just one of our cosmetic dentistry services, at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston. Please call our office to find out what we can do for your smile!

Lighten Up!

Lighten Up In North Tomball

Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again! At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we have never encountered a dull smile that we couldn’t improve.

Generally speaking, there are two types of tooth stains: extrinsic and instrinsic.

Extrinsic stains are surface stains, caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. These stains respond somewhat to over-the-counter whitening products like toothpaste, but the whitening is usuallly minimal and doesn’t last long.

Intrinsic stains form on the inside of the tooth. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining. These stains are harder to remove, but it can be done. Most patients get the best results from professional whitening systems.

It be done! But once you have a brilliant new smile, you help keep it that way by taking good care of it. For one thing, don’t smoke. It really stains teeth, and of course is really bad for your health. If you drink something like coffee or red wine, rinse your mouth out afterward, ideally within thirty minutes, to wash away those substances that discolor.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, teeth whitening is just one of our cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
