Treatments for Confident Smiles


Having a set of pearly whites is often associated with good health and hygiene, not to mention it can significantly improve your confidence and smile. However, age, lifestyle habits, and genetics can cause teeth to become discolored and stained. Among our many procedures, we offer teeth whitening for our patients at Jupiter Smiles Dental in Garland, Texas.

Teeth Color Correction

Tooth discoloration can happen for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Staining drinks like soda, coffee, and tea
  • Acidic and sugary foods
  • Tobacco
  • Poor dental hygiene

While over-the-counter teeth whitening products exist, they aren’t the most efficient option, especially in the long term. Professional teeth whitening is a safe procedure that produces quick and satisfying results that last longer than at-home treatments.

Teeth Replacements

Another goal of cosmetic dentistry is to replace any missing tooth to ensure a full smile. Your dentist determines what type of tooth replacement meets your needs depending on your overall dental health and the number (and position) of missing teeth that need treatment.

For individual replacements, your dental provider can use a dental implant (full tooth prosthetic). And to fix a broken or chipped tooth, they can opt for a crown, which replaces the part of the tooth above the gum line. When multiple teeth require restoration, bridges, and dentures (partial or full) can be more efficient.

Before any cosmetic dentistry procedures, our team will perform a thorough examination and review your medical history to design individualized treatment plans to maximize your results.

What is Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is a cosmetic procedure that removes stains and discoloration from teeth. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that can be done in the office or home using different products such as gels, strips, or trays. The main components of teeth whitening products are hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which penetrate the enamel and break down the stains. 

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that offers various benefits for enhancing the appearance of one’s smile. Here are five short benefits of teeth whitening:

  1. Improved Aesthetics: Teeth whitening enhances the overall appearance of teeth by reducing stains and discoloration, resulting in a brighter and more attractive smile.
  2. Boosted Confidence: Whiter teeth often lead to increased self-confidence. A brighter smile can make individuals feel more comfortable and confident in social and professional settings.
  3. Youthful Appearance: Teeth whitening can contribute to a more youthful look. Stained or discolored teeth can make a person appear older, while whiter teeth convey a sense of vitality and youthfulness.
  4. Enhanced Oral Hygiene Motivation: People who invest in teeth whitening may become more motivated to maintain good oral hygiene habits to preserve their brighter smile, leading to improved oral health.
  5. Quick and Non-Invasive: Teeth whitening is relatively quick and non-invasive compared to other cosmetic dental treatments. It provides noticeable results quickly, making it a convenient option for those seeking immediate improvements in their smile.

 

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

As mentioned before, teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. When these products are applied to the teeth, they release oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel and break down the stains. This chemical reaction causes the stains to become less visible, resulting in whiter teeth. Keep in mind that teeth whitening does not change the natural color of your teeth, but it does remove external stains.

 

Who Can Get Teeth Whitening

Generally speaking, teeth whitening is safe for most people. However, there are certain instances where teeth whitening should not be done, such as for pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with gum disease and tooth decay, or those with hypersensitivity to teeth whitening products. It is important to consult with a dentist or healthcare professional to assess if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.

 

Procedure Process

The teeth whitening procedure can differ depending on whether in-office or at-home. 

In-Office: For in-office treatments, Dr. Larry Tam or Dr. Thanh Chiem will apply a potent whitening gel to your teeth and use a special light to speed up the whitening process. This usually takes about one to two hours and can result in whiter teeth immediately. 

At-Home: For at-home treatments, Dr. Larry Tam or Dr. Thanh Chiem will create custom-made trays with a weaker whitening gel for you to wear at home. This process can take longer, usually a few weeks, but can still result in whiter teeth.

Aftercare

After the teeth whitening procedure, properly caring for your teeth is essential to maintain the results. Avoid consuming foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Brush and floss regularly to prevent plaque buildup, and use sensitive toothpaste if you experience any discomfort. Make sure to attend regular dental check-ups to assess the health of your teeth and ensure the results of your teeth whitening treatment last longer.
