Austin Teeth Whitening Treatment
While our patients’ needs and esthetic desires vary, the most commonly requested enhancement is teeth whitening.
Almost everyone would love to have a whiter, brighter smile. The great news is that once a thorough examination is completed to ensure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, there are a multitude of options to choose from, some of which are found in your local pharmacy or supermarket dental-care aisle. However, the highest degree of long-lasting success will be realized by investing in professional, in-office, dental-whitening procedures.
Our Teeth Whitening Methods
- Custom, Tray-Based, Tooth Whitening Gel System
This smile whitening system is designed for use at home. Specially formulated whitening gel is placed into custom-designed trays, fabricated from molds of your teeth, and worn for up to an hour over a period of days, determined by the degree of whitening desired and the internal color of your teeth. If you’d prefer whiteness without the wait, our in-office systems might be what you have been looking for.
- Opalescence Boost
This in-office, chemically activated, whitening gel treatment is also applied in trays fabricated from molds of your teeth. Due to the strength of this formula, offering results in less than an hour, this procedure requires direct supervision by one of our trained, clinical team members.
- Zoom In-Office Whitening System
Developed by Philips, Zoom is our most advanced whitening method. Zoom whitening can safely lighten your teeth up to eight shades, provide greater luster, and still protect your enamel. This is achieved in our office by carefully applying whitening agents activated with the Zoom light source.
Depending on your lifestyle and sensitivity, tooth whitening is not recommended for everyone. We invite you to visit with Dr. Steinberg and members of our clinical team, to discuss what may be appropriate for you.
Beautiful Smiles Start with Health
At the heart of a dazzling bright and white smile are healthy gum tissues. Continuing care visits with our hygienists are required at intervals dictated by your level of bacterial activity and buildup. These harmful bacteria and hard calculus around and under your gum tissue will cause inflammation, staining, and bleeding. Additionally, it is essential that you be committed to an impeccable home-care routine of daily brushing and flossing your teeth.
