If you wish for a brighter, whiter smile, ask Dr. Catalina Cruz Johnson about teeth whitening in Houston, Texas. Whitening can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, tooth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients. Our office offers two methods of whitening: in-office whitening and tray whitening.
In-office whitening is ideal for anyone wanting immediate results. The entire process takes place in our office in about an hour, making it the perfect choice for busy individuals. In this process, a protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue. A special, light-activated gel is then applied to your teeth, and a special light or laser is used to enhance the action of the agent, making your teeth whiter and brighter. As a final step, our dentists take impressions of your teeth to create custom trays for at home touch-ups, and they will give you instructions for keeping your smile bright. The result is dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.
Tray whitening is a less expensive whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home. Our dentists will first take an impression of your mouth to create customized clear whitening trays for you to wear. Within a few days, your trays will be ready to be picked up, and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material to the trays. The whitening gel trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. At the end of this period, you will see maximum whitening results that are nothing short of dazzling. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
