Teeth whitening from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry in Dallas is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile. It is quick and non-invasive. While some patients experience short-term sensitivity, most report no pain at all.
If you have looked into teeth whitening systems, you probably already know the essentials. The one thing they have in common is that they use a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have settled in the natural microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
There are many DIY teeth bleaching systems available. Whitening strips and pens can sometimes whiten your teeth a few shades, but the peroxide concentration is much lower than the whitening solutions used in cosmetic dental offices. It may not be dynamic enough for your tooth stains.
We recommend extreme caution when considering a take-home tooth whitener. If you have cavities, gum recession, crowns, or veneers, you definitely need professional guidance.
We offer our patients two options: Zoom! whitening, an in-office, light-activated system, and a professional-grade take-home kit.
