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!
