Stained and discolored teeth can dramatically compromise the beauty of your smile. With a teeth whitening treatment provided at our Tomball, TX, office, Dr. Louis Russell, Jr can help patients achieve whiter smiles. We offer both in-office and take-home treatment options, so patients can choose the approach that is most beneficial and convenient for them. Both options can provide a smile that is up to eight shades brighter than before.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Dr. Russell provides Opalescence® Boost for our in-office whitening treatments. After carefully mixing the whitening solution, Dr. Russell applies the 38% hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes. He can reapply the gel several times in a single appointment to achieve your desired results.
Teeth whitening is a simple way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
For take-home teeth whitening treatments, we create custom-fitted trays in our office. Custom trays are superior to generic trays because they fit precisely over the teeth, keeping the whitening gel from coming into contact with the gums. Patients use a syringe to fill the whitening trays before placing them over the teeth. The trays are left in place for 15 minutes to an hour per day. Most patients achieve their desired results in about two weeks.
Our take-home kits include custom dental trays and a special syringe used to apply a powerful whitening formula.
We also provide take-home trays for our patients who choose in-office whitening. Teeth whitening is not permanent, so additional treatments are needed to maintain your results. With our custom-fitted trays, you can maintain the brightness of your smile as needed from the comfort of your own home.
Why Consider Professional Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is safer and more effective than the whitening systems found in drug stores and supermarkets because Dr. Russell carefully monitors dosage and results. This prevents the unnatural look that over-whitening can cause. It also prevents the severe tooth sensitivity many consumers experience with over-the-counter whitening methods.
Teeth whitening is a simple way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. Many patients experience self-consciousness over the discoloration of their teeth. After undergoing teeth whitening, they can smile and laugh with greater confidence. Meanwhile, most patients are candidates. If your smile is free of decay and periodontal disease, whitening can help you achieve the illuminated smile you desire.
Combining Teeth Whitening with Other Treatments
Teeth whitening can provide excellent results when used alone, but can provide an even more dazzling enhancement when combined with other treatments. For example, many patients choose to undergo whitening before receiving porcelain veneers or dental bonding. In this way, the materials can be matched to the whiter shade of surrounding teeth to achieve symmetry and rejuvenation. In fact, smile makeovers that do not incorporate teeth whitening are quite rare.
