As we age, our enamel erodes and results in a yellowish tint to our teeth. The yellowish tint, which stems from the color of the "dentin" at the tooth's core, can become more and more noticeable and result in more and more self-awareness. Getting rid of this tint is now easy though, with state-of-the-art teeth whitening procedures from your Sugar Land TX dentist Dr. Youngs.
What to Expect
Typically, Dr. Youngs will suggest one of two teeth whitening techniques to help restore the white color of your smile:
1. The first method is "in-office whitening"- which takes place at our Sugar Land TX office. This procedure requires the application of a highly concentrated peroxide gel onto the teeth, which we use a special shield on the gums for protection. The application can take about an hour to be completed, but results can be quite immediate.
2. The second method is a "take-home whitening kit" which you can purchase from our office. These kits, while a lower grade strength than "in-office" treatments, are far more effective than any in-store whitening strips or toothpaste you will find. Depending on the product, you may need to apply the treatment for about two hours a day, or overnight, for a few days in order to see results.
With either whitening method, the application can result in a brighter, healthier looking smile.
