For your convenience, Port Lavaca Dentistry offers both in-office and take-home tooth whitening options.
Over the years, eroding enamel creates a discoloration of the teeth resulting in a yellowish tint. The thinning enamel allows for the yellow substance or dentin from the teeth's core to be visibly noticeable. The yellowing teeth create a negative sense of self-awareness. Riding the yellowish tint from teeth may require the application of teeth whitening techniques. The bleaching process allows the teeth to return to brighter, shiny white color.
What to Expect
Under most circumstances, Dr. Ahmed will utilize one of two teeth whitening application to restore the white color to your teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Your in-office teeth whitening takes place at our Port Lavaca TX dental office. The procedure requires the application of a highly concentrated, peroxide gel onto the teeth with a special shield for protection. The application requires an hour for the process. The results are immediate with a significant change in color.
Take-Home Tooth Whitening
Purchasing the home whitening kits from the dentist will ensure your receive the highest quality product. The kits offer a lower strength gel than the in-office whitening method. With the in-home method, the patient will need to apply the gel for a longer period of time. Depending on the product, the application may require two hours or an overnight method for quality results.
