It is an unfortunate fact that almost everyone will deal with stained or discolored teeth at some point over the years. Even if you are brushing and flossing multiple times a day, there may come a point when it feels as if you are fighting an uphill battle. Our team understands just how frustrating this problem can be, and that is why we are proud to offer our patients professional teeth whitening services. These treatments take around 45 minutes to complete, and you are going to walk out of our office with the dazzling smile of your dreams.
Where Did These Stains Come From?
The most effective way to keep your teeth bright and healthy is to brush and floss them a few times a day, but everything that you eat and drink will take a toll on your smile. Foods and liquids will become trapped in the microscopic holes that are found in the outer layers of your teeth, and that debris will eventually result in discoloration. Some of the worst offenders include coffee, tea, dark sodas, candy, and dried fruits. When those foods and drinks permeate the outer layers of your teeth, you may begin to notice yellow or brown stains. Over time, that debris is also going to increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Some over-the-counter whitening kits are effective, but patients need to realize that those products can also be very dangerous. They often contain harsh chemicals that will strip away the outer layers of your teeth. Once those layers have been removed, you might struggle with a wide variety of secondary complications including yellowish patches on your teeth or sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Those are just a few of the reasons why we suggest our professional teeth whitening services. Our whitening treatments are both safe and effective, and you won’t have to worry about any unwanted complications or side effects.
Your Whitening Appointment
The total length of your professional teeth whitening appointment depends on a few different variables, but most of our whitening treatments take around 45 minutes to complete. During your treatment, you are going to relax in a comfortable chair while our powerful whitening gel lifts the stains away. We generally use a whitening gel that can be activated with a specialty light. Once the treatment is over, you can immediately resume all normal activities. In the weeks following your treatment, you should continue to brush and floss multiple times a day to prevent the stains from coming back.
If the stains ever return, then you can easily schedule a follow-up professional teeth whitening appointment at Blair Med Spa to brighten your smile once again. Most of our patients schedule annual or biannual whitening treatments to keep their teeth vibrant and beautiful. We are conveniently located in Houston, TX.
