Before you undergo any cosmetic dentistry in Nederland, your dentist examines your teeth and gums—especially if you have not been to our office in some time—to make sure professional teeth whitening is a good option for you.

Your dentist in Nederland considers any restorations or gum health conditions before moving forward. However, dental health issues do not necessarily rule you out for professional teeth whitening. Your dentist also wants to learn more about your smile goals.

Following professional teeth whitening, your dentist or a member of our team can also give you tips to help you maintain your dazzling new smile.

Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening Systems in the 77627 Area

At Nederland Family Dental, we have tried it all when it comes to teeth whitening. We looked everywhere to find the most effective teeth whitening system, and the one that worked best for our patients, provided outstanding results, and was easiest to use was our custom deep bleaching system.

After a consultation with G. Whitney Gomez DDS, we will take impressions of your teeth to make your custom whitening trays. You can keep your trays forever and clean them with cold (not hot) water and a toothbrush after each use. With proper care, your trays will last many years for touch-ups, and your dentist can prescribe or refill your whitening gel when needed.

Once we make your custom trays, we will determine the best professional whitening system to use for you. Whitening gel comes in different strengths, and which one will work best depends on your desired outcome and the health of your teeth. For people with sensitive teeth, we have lower strength gels.

We take before-and-after pictures so you can see how many shades your teeth lightened with your professional whitening kit.

The best part about our custom system is that you can use it when it works for you. Whether you are cleaning your house, running errands, or doing paperwork, you choose your time to whiten.

Imagine curling up with a good book and whitening your smile at the same time!

Your dentist or a member of our team will tell you how often you should whiten your teeth, how much gel to place in each tooth receptacle, and how often you should use the system.

Professional Teeth Whitening Is Safe

When performed under the supervision of a dentist, teeth whitening is entirely safe. The most common side effects include tender gums and tooth sensitivity. This can be especially challenging for people with gum recession. If you experience teeth sensitivity, you may need to cut back on the frequency that you whiten. If your gums hurt, cutting back on the amount of gel you use is a helpful solution.

Your teeth stain more easily during the whitening process. Avoiding staining foods like coffee, tea, and red wine can help you achieve better results as well.

If you have questions during your teeth whitening, or if you notice any oral health changes that are not common to whitening, contact our dental office. A member of our knowledgeable team can advise you on the proper steps to take.

When you whiten your teeth under the care of a dental professional, it means that the dentist has deemed your teeth and gums safe for treatment. When you rely on store-bought kits or internet purchased gels, you may be using ingredients that are too harsh or abrasive, which can lead to damage or prolonged tooth sensitivity.

Additionally, with a custom tray, you are far less likely to get the gel on your gums, which is probably one of the leading causes of tooth sensitivity when whitening your smile.

 We have also had patients who were disappointed with their results following teeth whitening with systems purchased in stores. You can never be sure of even results, which can mean stripes on your teeth or varying hues across your smile line.

Can I Combine Teeth Whitening with Other Cosmetic Dental Options?

If you’re considering making over your smile, our cosmetic dentist in Nederland, TX can help, and it is easy to make professional teeth whitening part of a cosmetic makeover. Your dentist can even help you plan your smile and work with you on a timeline that fits your budget and lifestyle.

However, restorations like white fillings and crowns do not bleach the way your natural teeth do, which is why planning is so important.

Starting your cosmetic journey with teeth whitening means that you can choose lighter restorations like crowns and fillings.

Our cosmetic dentistry options in Nederland, include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings to close cavities without the silver
  • Dental bonding to conceal chips and other tooth flaws
  • Porcelain crowns to support a damaged tooth aesthetically
  • Invisalign to gradually and discreetly straighten your teeth
  • Laser gum treatments to help with gummy smiles and more
  • Porcelain veneers to give a movie star finish
  • Dental implants to take the place of missing teeth
  • Full smile makeovers to implement a variety of services to achieve your best smile
