Teeth Whitening

Your smile is extremely important because it is usually the first thing noticed when meeting someone. A smile that is brighter and whiter, coming from a more confident person, can make a memorable impression on anyone you meet, as well as make you feel great in the process. It is unfortunate that aging and bad habits can darken and stain your perfect teeth. Our Cosmetic Dentists at Gums and Smiles Family Dental can help restore the white shine back to your teeth. Call our dental office at 512-337-1919 for white teeth!

Take-home whitening kits: At-home teeth whitening is a cost effective solution to brighten and make over your smile. Patients will need to visit our Burlington dental office in order for your dentist to take an impression of your teeth to make customized clear whitening trays. Your whitening trays will take a few days to complete. Once completed, patients can wear their whitening tray for 30-60 minutes a day, twice a day. Patients can expect to see results gradually appear within a few weeks.

Since whitening kits contain high levels of peroxide, we advise patients to exercise caution during use. Take extra care when placing the whitening gels in the trays and ensure it is not overfilling the gums, which can lead to sore gums or more serious health problems. Also, do not wear the kit for more than an hour when whitening at home, as it could result in increased teeth sensitivity. If your teeth ever feel sensitive, discontinue use of the whitening kit for a few days to allow the teeth to settle. Contact our office for more information.
