Professional Teeth Whitening

You obviously have a lot of teeth whitening options- every drug store and big box store in Texas offers entire rows of over-the-counter whitening products. These are tempting- who wouldn't want whiter teeth in the comfort of their own home?

However, you're much better off choosing professional teeth whitening from our office.  We can custom design trays used to apply whitening gel, ensuring that you get a full, even whitening across all of your teeth.

Furthermore, professional teeth whitening is safer. While over-the-counter products don't pose a serious danger to your health, they can sting your gums, tongue and cheeks if improperly applied. We can prevent that.

And if you're truly enthusiastic about at-home whitening, we can accommodate that. We can provide you with custom-built whitening trays you can wear at home. You'll see improvement over the course of four to six weeks.

Are You a Candidate For Teeth Whitening?

The key to a safe procedure is ensuring that you're a good candidate for that procedure in the first place. The same is true of teeth whitening.

To be a good candidate for whitening, your teeth and gums need to be structurally sound. If you're suffering from gum disease or you have teeth that are rotten or broken, we'll need to address those issues before moving forward with whitening.

Our experienced dentists will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and gums to determine if whitening is the best course of action for you.
