Teeth Whitening at Victory Smiles in Houston
Plenty of our patients wish that they had whiter teeth like celebrities and influencers do. Coffee and tea, as well as wine or tomato-based foods are common causes of yellowing. This can be attributed to their acidity levels and how they can slightly weaken our enamel, often discoloring it. Although there are whitening products you can buy at the pharmacy that may seem legitimate because they are made by toothpaste brands, those kits may not be what's best for our patients. Instead, we recommend going to a cosmetic dentist such as ours at Victory Smiles, who has access to specially designed bleaches that can break up the yellowing stains on your teeth and, as a result, help you achieve that pearly white smile you've always wanted.
Why We Don't Recommend Teeth Whitening Kits
When it comes to at-home whitening, it's quite a tedious process and the treatment can be lengthy. If done incorrectly, it can lead to excessive sensitivity and pain. Over-the-counter treatments can end up being a waste of money because trying again could only worsen your discomfort and sensitivity. Additionally, the results only last a few weeks and will cost more in the long run because you will have to keep re-purchasing kits in order to maintain the whiteness of your teeth. Unlike store-bought kits, which will require multiple applications to achieve a certain degree of whiteness, a trained cosmetic dentist can help you achieve your desired results much more quickly.
Visit a Houston Cosmetic Dentist Instead
Sometimes the fact that dentists use professional-grade equipment may mislead our patients into thinking that an over-the-counter treatment is a great and user-friendly route to go, but this is not the case. In fact, professional-grade equipment is far superior and safer when compared to DIY kits. The good thing about trusting a cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening is that they will tailor your treatments to your needs far more than a boxed whitening kit ever will. If you already have some sensitivity, you can still come to Victory Smiles for a whitening treatment. Our dentists will make sure to complete the treatment without putting you at risk of more sensitivity afterward. As a plus, this can usually be done in one short visit and you will see results instantly.
