Pamper Yourself With Professional Teeth Whitening

fast teeth whitening North Tomball

Have you ever thought about getting your teeth whitened? At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX you get to relax in a comfy chair, and enjoy a bright smile when you leave.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. The good news is that it has never been easier to achieve. There are tons of whitening products available at the grocery store: toothpastes and strips and other whitening products.

Most commercially available products do an adequate job whitening your teeth. But none can match professional teeth whitening.

We use the KöR® whitening system. A powerful whitening gel is placed in trays that are custom-fitted to your teeth. The trays have a special seal to keep the gel in and keep saliva from contaminating it. The results, we think you’ll agree, are quite startling.

You deserve to be pampered! At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX our teeth whitening is unmatched. Patients from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Contact us today!

Whitening vs Bleaching At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

Whitening vs Bleaching At The Gentle Art of Dentistry In Houston

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that we provide almost daily at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX. Everyone, it seems, would like to have a brighter smile.

And why not? A whiter smile boosts self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away.

Since modern dentistry offers a vast list of cosmetic options, we know it can be hard to distinguish between different procedures. In order for our patients to stay informed, we have put together a simple comparison between teeth whitening and teeth bleaching. The terms actually describe two different procedures.

Teeth whitener consists of any over-the-counter product used to remove stains from tooth enamel. Toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and cost-effective, and can improve teeth with continued, regular use. They’re a good choice for anyone with sensitive teeth and gums.

The term “bleaching,” however, refers to a teeth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. For best results, teeth bleaching should be administered by a dentist. The results tend to be far superior than any over-the-counter product.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we have brightened countless smiles with professional-grade teeth whitening. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services. Request an appointment with us today!

Help For Tetracycline Stains At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

Help For Tetracycline And Fluoride Stains At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

There’s hardly anyone out there who wouldn’t like to have a brighter, whiter smile. With professional teeth whitening at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, getting the whitest possible smile has never been easier.

You might think that over-the-counter whitening products are a simple shortcut to whiter teeth. It’s true there are lots of whitening gels, strips, and toothpastes at any grocery store. But they won’t deliver the results you’ll see from professional whitening.

Effectiveness is one of the biggest advantages to professional whitening. Another is speed. Imagine walking into our office with dull or yellowed teeth and leaving with a brilliant smile! In most cases teeth whitening can be finished in a single office visit.

When it comes to hard-to-remove stains, like those from tetracycline, the ballgame changes a little. Tetracycline is an antibiotic, and in high doses can permanently stain teeth. Lighter stains can usually be removed with teeth whitening. For more serious discoloration, veneers may be in order. These are thin porcelain shells that are custom-fitted to cover the surfaces of teeth.

Teeth whitening from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston can give you a stunning new smile. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to our office for porcelain veneers, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!

Sparkling Smiles At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

affordable teeth whitening Houston

Sparkling smiles are more attractive than dull and yellow ones: you won’t get much disagreement there. Everybody likes to see a pleasing smile, and having beautiful teeth is also good for your self esteem. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we create sparkling smiles every day with cosmetic dentistry.

Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but we see staining on young patients, too. To protect teeth from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.

A great smile is a huge asset. It’s how we express a range of emotions without saying a word. Our goal is to draw your teeth and facial structure into harmony, so that you are able to present the world with the best possible you.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, teeth whitening is safe and effective. With whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures we have improved smiles throughout East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Tooth Whitening: In-Office Or At Home?

affordable teeth whitening Houston

If you are planning to whiten your teeth, the important first step is to settle upon a whitening method. It may seem like there are a lot of options, but they all use a peroxide-based whitening solution. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston we offer in-office whitening, and professional-strength whitening kits you can use at home.

The main difference between professional strength and commercial, over-the-counter products is in the strength of the bleaching solution and method of delivery. Professional strength is much stronger, surpassing anything you’ll find at the store.

Doesn’t require a trip to the dentist

Solution must be applied many times over a period of weeks

The Tea And Teeth Question

Houston teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’ll talk about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is vital.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider professional teeth whitening. We offer in-office teeth whitening, which can transform your smile in just one office visit. For those who prefer to control the process, we also have a professional-grade take-home kit.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures can transform yellow or dull teeth. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Should Houston Teens Whiten Their Teeth?

Houston teeth bleaching best price

Getting a smile just like their favorite singer or movie star might be high on your teen’s priority list. However, you may want to talk with The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston before buying an at-home tooth whitening product.

As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of variables that can influence the results such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. Your dentist can determine if tooth stains are a symptom of an underlying condition.

It’s always a good idea to stress prevention over treatments, especially with kids. Make sure your teen is observing sensible oral health habits. Make sure they understand that coffee, tea, cola, and energy drinks can stain their teeth.

And if they need another reason not to smoke, remind them that tobacco products will destroy their beautiful smile along with their lungs. Lastly, warn them of the dangers of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.

If you or any member of your family decides to use an over-the-counter teeth whitener, be sure to follow the instructions exactly as the bleaching agents used can damage your mouth and gums.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, teeth whitening is one of our cosmetic dentistry services. Call for an appointment today!

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!
