Teeth Whitening Information

Teeth Whitening - My Family Dentist Garland

Our whitening solutions are safe, quick, and inexpensive. Let Dr. Heaton know at your appointment that you are interested in whitening your teeth, and we will consult with you to formulate the best course of action for your desires. We have options for upper teeth and lower teeth whitening and they can be done separately if desired.

My Family Dentist Garland builds custom bleaching splints which can be ready for pickup in one or two days. Alongside your custom splint, we include a special bleaching agent which will be used in the splint before wearing for 3 to 4 hours per day. The bleaching agent lifts stains right out of your enamel in a short time without effecting tooth structure or tooth work. This process is continued until your teeth reach the desired brightness, and occasional maintenance is necessary to retain this color. We always take “after” photos after you have completed your treatment so that we can keep them for our records.

Dental bleaching can be used to treat and correct tooth discoloration caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage. My Family Dentist uses the latest in bleaching technology and provides a safe way to whiten your teeth. If discoloration or damage is too severe, the only solution might be crowns or veneers. However, bleaching is popular because of its low cost and amazing results.

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects discoloration of the teeth (yellowness, brownness, or spotting)
  • Works on patients of all ages
  • Acts as a near-permanent solution and creates a bright white smile.

Teeth Whitening Procedure

Dr. Heaton will take an impression of your teeth in order to create a custom “stent” or “mouthguard” which will act as a vessel for holding the bleach on your teeth. This mouthguard along with a bleaching agent will be applied to your teeth for 3-4 hours per night for about one to two weeks. Significant whitening occurs during this time, and most patients are amazed with the results. Our bleaching process is overwhelmingly successful and gives us a reliable way to help our patients brighten their smile. If we decide that your teeth are too severely stained, the only option might be crowns or porcelain veneers.

You might find over-the-counter tooth bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, these products can harm your teeth and gums and are not recommended by our practice.
