Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive treatment that focuses on improving the color of your tooth enamel. Daily, your tooth enamel is exposed to elements that can cause darkening, stains, discoloration, and spots. Among the most common reasons for stains on your smile is age, drinking dark liquids such as coffee and wine, smoking cigarettes and other tobacco products, and not utilizing proper oral hygiene habits. An unbalanced diet of sugary and acidic foods can also discolor your tooth enamel. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Scott A. Ervin, provides teeth whitening in Terrell, Texas to reverse stains and discoloration for a dazzling new smile and renewed self-confidence.
There are many different methods to whiten your teeth. At our dental office, we are able to utilize the latest teeth whitening treatments to ensure you achieve the results you want. The most common methods used are in-office teeth whitening treatments and custom-made at-home whitening trays. When you whiten your smile in our office, a specialized whitening gel is applied directly to the surface of your tooth enamel and allowed to absorb. As it does, it gently bleaches stained tooth enamel molecules for a smile that can be multiple shades lighter in as little as an hour. To whiten your smile at home, the whitening gel is applied as you wear custom whitening trays that fit snugly over your teeth. With at-home whitening, you are able to control how white your smile becomes.
