Teeth whitening in Houston

Whether done in our office by our Houston dentist, or at home by you, using custom-made whitening trays, you can get the brighter smile you’ve been wanting. It’s quick, effective, and most of all, safe. At Dentistry on Kirby, we make it a priority to offer all of the valuable services you need to have healthy, strong, and great-looking teeth.

Why not just buy a product off a store shelf? Well, there is certainly no shortage of them. Pretty much every supermarket and drug store has them. But there are three aspects of them that you should be aware of. First, they are generally not designed to turn discolored teeth white in the first place; they are more suited for maintenance. Second, if you get generic whitening trays, they won’t fit you with the precision and comfort that you get when they are made just for you. And third, many over-the-counter options contain abrasive ingredients that can harm your tooth enamel. So turn to our Houston dentist instead. If you decide to have it done in-office, you’ll experience whiter teeth in just about an hour. And if you would like the convenience of doing it yourself at home, impressions will be taken for your trays, that you will wear for two or three hours per night for about two to three weeks, after which you will come back to have our Houston dentist check your progress. There is no doubt that teeth whitening can improve your self-esteem and confidence as much as having stained and discolored teeth can cause the opposite effect. The results you get can last from a year to even several years, depending on how well you maintain them and what habits you have. For example, smoking is just one example of how the effects of whitening can be shortened.

Schedule an appointment. Call us today, and soon you will be enjoying the benefits of whiter teeth.

You have probably heard that it’s a good idea to get a dental checkup every six months, but are you aware of all the benefits from doing so? A visit to us at Dentistry on Kirby two times per year helps to prevent gum disease, save you money on future dental problems, and may even detect signs of possible oral cancer in its early stages. These are the advantages of regular examinations with our Houston dentist.

Gum disease begins from the effects of plaque and tartar. Most plaque is removed with brushing and flossing, but it can hide in your gum pockets, out of reach of your oral hygiene efforts. It then hardens into tartar. Irritation and gum redness can be a result, and they are signs of gingivitis, early stage gum disease. But a thorough teeth cleaning done twice-yearly will not only stop the advancement of gum disease, but will reverse its effects, preventing the onset of periodontitis, the later stage of gum disease, and it’s potential consequences. An oral cancer screening is simple and as with cancer anywhere in the body, early detection is closely linked to the best outcomes. If any signs are noticed, our Houston dentist will refer you to the appropriate specialist for any applicable follow-up. As for future dental problems, it’s always true that prevention and early treatment are less complex and expensive than waiting for those concerns to become more severe. For example, it is far easier to get a small filling now than it is to have root canal therapy later. And advanced gum disease can require deeper cleaning or even gum surgery. Our Houston dentist is dedicated to the goal of nipping such issues in the bud.

It isn’t difficult nor time-consuming to visit our office every six months. Why not call us right now and schedule your checkup?
