The 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!
