Teeth Whitening Cedar Park, TX

Teeth Whitening At Advanced Family Dentistry in Cedar Park, TexasTooth whitening is an easy dental treatment option that can alter the color of your teeth. This is a simple way to enhance the beauty and appearance of your smile. At Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces, we offer two types of teeth whitening: Zoom and an at-home whitening system. Regardless of the option that you choose, the end result will be a white and beautiful smile that you will be proud of. Tooth whitening isn’t permanent, as you may need touch ups once per year, but by taking certain precautions you can enjoy a white smile for a long time.

Reasons for Teeth Whitening

There are many cosmetic concerns associated with the teeth that may have you turning to whitening:

•  Brown or yellow stained teeth
•  Teeth that have been stained due to certain medications, such as tetracycline
•  Normal aging or wear of the enamel
•  Fluorosis of the teeth due to excess fluoride exposure during the tooth development

There is no "right" time to get your teeth whitened, as any time is a good time to improve the appearance of your smile. If you have a special event coming up like a wedding, class reunion, or job interview, whitening your teeth can help you look your best. A whiter smile is also associated with increased self-esteem and confidence.

Zoom Whitening

At Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces, we offer Zoom whitening in order to whiten your teeth in our office. Zoom is a popular bleaching process that is widely used across the U.S., and it utilizes a special chairside lamp to activate a whitening solution of 25% hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide within the solution is broken down, oxygen will enter the dentin and enamel to bleach the teeth. The end result is a tooth structure that is unchanged, but enamel that appears significantly whiter.

The complete procedure will take about an hour and a half in our office. It typically starts with a regular tooth cleaning before the actual whitening session, your lips and gums will be covered so that only the teeth are exposed. Next, we will apply the Zoom whitening gel, and it will stay in place for 15 minutes while we activate the light. This process will happen three times, and immediately after you have finished, we will place a sensitivity-reducing fluoride solution onto your teeth in order to reduce the potential for discomfort.

At-Home Whitening

The at-home tooth whitening process will require two visits. During your first appointment, we'll talk about what you are hoping to get out of the whitening process. We will examine the current shade of your teeth and can discuss how much of a change you are looking to achieve. Then, we will take impressions of your teeth, as this information will be used to customize a set of clear, plastic trays. This information and the shade specifications will be sent off to a dental lab so that your aligners can be fabricated.

Once your trays have been sent back from the lab, we will call you to set up your second appointment. During this session, we will have you try the trays on to ensure that they fit properly, and if adjustments are needed, we will make them in the office. We will then explain exactly how you should use the trays in order to whiten your teeth.

Typically, you'll wear your trays either twice per day or overnight. They will be filled with a specialized whitening solution, and the amount of time that you need to wear them will depend on how white you want them to become and the degree of staining found on your teeth. Be aware that it is normal to experience tooth sensitivity while whitening, but these effects should subside after your treatment has ended.
