TEETH WHITENING2022-01-31T17:10:45+00:00

Teeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks such as soda, spicy food, and coffee. However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting the tooth structure.

Almost all teeth whitening services in Houston, Tx has to offer are similar in concept, but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. Another contributing factor is the concentration of the material, which is why less potent over-the-counter whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they are hoping for. Look no further than Applewhite Dental Arts for Dr. Hedieh Pournik provides the best teeth whitening services in Houston. Call for a consultation today!

Affordable Tooth Whitening Services in Houston

The two main methods of treatments that our teeth whitening dentists at Applewhite Dental Arts use are tray whitening and in-office treatment. In tray whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then, a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears the tray for a few hours each day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal side effect of this whitening method and is almost always transitional.

On the other hand, in-office whitening is the most efficient means of whitening. There are a number of different types used, but the process is very similar for these methods; you can have your teeth whitened in one session and achieve significant results. Dr. Pournik can give you more detailed information and help you decide which method is more suitable for you and your teeth.
