Based on recent surveys, the overwhelming majority of Americans want a whiter smile. Many people desire a bright white smile, and professional teeth whitening is a great way to rejuvenate your look.
Professional Teeth Whitening Austin
Professional teeth whitening procedures are effective for many situations. There are, however, certain types of stains that do not whiten as well as others, and Dr. Thompson will discuss this with you if you fall into this category.
Veneers may be a great alternative to situations that may not be ideal for whitening alone. Additionally, fillings and restorations such as crowns and bridges do not whiten, and therefore alternatives can be discussed. Let Dr. Thompson know if you are interested in professional teeth whitening and she can discuss with you your specific situation and whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.
In-office Professional Teeth Whitening: ZOOM
Dr. Thompson currently offers ZOOM in-office whitening for those patients who want dramatic results quickly. For this procedure, the gums and soft tissues are protected, a whitening gel is painted onto your teeth, and a light is used to enhance the effects of the whitening solution. This service comes with custom take-home whitening trays to continue and maintain your whitening results after the in-office procedure.
Take-Home Professional Teeth Whitening Trays
Custom fit take-home whitening trays are a great alternative to an in-office whitening procedure for a more economical option, or for those patients who tend to have sensitive teeth, and still want great results. This type of whitening contains professional strength whitening solution (much stronger than over the counter whitening), but is more gradual of a process than the in-office ZOOM, and takes 1-2 weeks to see results.
