Teeth Whitening – Katy, TX

Boost Your Confidence with a Whiter Smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular, safe, and effective methods of cosmetic dentistry available. The team at The Dental People is pleased to offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening kits to help patients achieve whiter, brighter smiles in less time. While aisles upon aisles at the local drug store are filled with products that promise “instant results,” we encourage our patients to stop wasting money on over-the-counter kits and instead, invest in a solution that produces lasting results in less time. To find out how you can get started, contact our office to schedule an appointment.

How Does In-Office Teeth Whitening Work?

In-office teeth whitening

If you want results in about an hour, then in-office teeth whitening might just be for you. During your visit, one of our highly-trained dentists will sit down to discuss your goals and what you want from treatment. Depending on your individual case and the severity of your staining and discoloration, we will begin by placing a guard around your soft tissues (i.e. lips and gums). This will keep them protected from the high-grade bleaching gel that will be used on your teeth.

Next, we will use the whitening gel on each individual tooth in combination with a special UV light to blast away surface and deep-down stains. This will penetrate your tooth’s enamel and produce a brighter, whiter smile in no time.

Should it be necessary, we will apply the gel multiple times in order to achieve desired results.

How Does At-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

If you prefer to whiten your smile at home, we are happy to provide at-home whitening kits with customized trays to fit your smile. There’s no one-size-fits-all at our office. Instead, we will take impressions of your smile and have dental lab technicians create customized trays to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

Once at home, you will wear your trays a designated amount of time each day for two weeks. After that time, you will notice a dramatic difference in your smile.
