Is it really almost 2016? Time really does fly, which means the holiday office parties and family get togethers are just around the corner. If your smile could use a pick-up, then now is the time to consider the options offered by Vanderbrook and Hoppe Dentistry, the cosmetic dentist Lakewood Dallas turns to for beautiful results. One of our most popular and most effective cosmetic treatments is teeth whitening. With either our in-office or our at-home whitening systems, you can have a smile that is ready for holiday cheer!
Teeth become yellowed and stained for a variety of reasons. Some of these are:
- Foods and beverages that are prone to stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, colas, tomato sauce, chocolate, berries and soy sauce
- Smoking and chewing tobacco products, which contain nicotine, a prime factor in tooth discoloration
- Teeth grinding and clenching, which can dull the biting surfaces of your teeth
- Cracks in teeth that hide stain-causing debris
- A traumatic injury that discolors a tooth or causes a crack that collects debris
- Some medications including the antibiotic tetracycline and certain forms of chemotherapy
- The unavoidable aging process
Regardless of why your teeth are not as white as they used to be, Dr. Vanderbrook and Dr. Hoppe offer a teeth whitening system that is right for you, your schedule and your budget.
Teeth Whitening in Lakewood Dallas
For the best teeth whitening results, our office trusts both Opalescence® Boost in-office treatment and Opalescence at-home whitening. If you need to have whiter teeth in time for a special occasion, then Opalescence Boost works in about one hour. Other in-office systems need to be heat or light activated. Opalescence Boost, on the other hand, relies on a 100 percent safe and effective chemically-activated formula. The whitening ingredient—either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide—enters the enamel of your teeth to break up the stains in your teeth. As a bonus, Opalescence reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity and makes tooth enamel stronger.
Opalescence at-home whitening is perfect for people whose schedules are already packed and would, therefore, rather whiten their teeth at home on their own time. Although there are plenty of over-the-counter whitening kits available, the strength of the whitening gel cannot be guaranteed. With Opalescence at-home from Vanderbrook and Hoppe, you can be sure the gel you receive is fresh and potent. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and fabricate custom mouth trays. Simply fill the trays with the Opalescence gel we provide and wear according to our instructions. These can always be used for touch-up treatments after in-office whitening.
