Did you know anything that will stain a white shirt will stain your teeth?
Strawberries, blueberries, smoking, tea, coffee, red wine and ageing will discolor teeth.
Pasadena Texas Cosmetic Dentist Michael Nugent can utilize teeth whitening (also referred to as teeth bleaching) to return your teeth to their original white and shiny look. Almost all patients can benefit from the amazing and easy to use dental bleaching trays. Whitening your teeth will not damage or harm your teeth.
“Teeth whitening is the easiest and most cost effective cosmetic dental procedure available. My patients love their new dazzling smiles!” Michael Nugent DDS
Can you tell who has bleached their teeth? Look at the shade difference between bleached teeth and non-bleached teeth. Teeth whitening gives you a nice cosmetic white smile. (This patient was all smiles and giving a thumbs up because I just completed a cosmetic dental implant on one of her front teeth)
Teeth Bleaching is the easiest Cosmetic Dental Procedure.
Dr. Nugent utilizes home bleaching kits and does not do laser one hour office whitening. The in-office laser whitening is very expensive, painful and will not yield optimal results. Patients that have the laser in-office whitening sill will need to use at home bleaching trays to achieve maximum results.
Dr. Nugent loves take home bleaching kits because they are cost effective, easy to use and patients will achieve optimal whiteness while using the home bleaching kits. The average initial time investment is about 20 minutes a day for about 12 days. This initial usage is removing the stains that patients have built up their entire lives. Once the stain is completely removed patients will have a beautiful cosmetic smile and patients will stop using their bleaching trays. On average, patients will touch up their smiles every 6 to 9 months. These touch ups usually are just wearing the bleaching trays for 20 minutes for two days. This touch up is simply removing the stain that has built up on the teeth in the last 6 to 9 months. After the initial bleaching, the maintenance of your beautiful new white teeth gets extremely easy.
Dr. Nugent is a leader in Cosmetic, General, Implant and Sedation Dentistry. He has the honor of winning PASADENA TEXAS BEST DENTIST in 2010 and PASADENA TEXAS BEST DENTIST 2011 from the Pasadena Citizen Newspaper. Dr. Nugent helps patients from Pasadena, Deer Park, La Porte, League City, Clear Lake, Friendswood, Baytown, Webster, Pearland and Houston Texas.
Whitening your Teeth
Teeth whitening, also called bleaching, is a simple, painless way to change the color of your natural tooth enamel and make your smile look better.
Most people now care most about how their teeth look, so there are many ways to whiten them. The most common way is to use a teeth-whitening kit at home, which will make your teeth a lot whiter. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, you should think about getting any old fillings, caps, etc. replaced. Any fillings or crowns will be replaced after cleaning so that they match the new color of the teeth.
Whitening your teeth does not last forever. Periodically you will need to touch up your teeth with your bleaching trays.
At the first visit, impressions (molds) of your teeth will be made so that clear plastic trays can be made just for you.
At your second visit, you’ll try on the trays to make sure they fit right. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution once a day for 320 minutes. After about 10 days you will have a brighter smile.
You will be given advice on how to take care of your teeth and trays, and you will be encouraged to visit your dentist often so that you can keep your smile healthy, white, and beautiful.
