Teeth Whitening – Oak Cliff, TX
Giving You a Whiter and More Confident Smile
If you’re like millions of Americans, you may have stains in your smile that make you feel self-conscious and less confident. There are many over-the-counter whitening products because of this common problem, but they rarely provide the results you’re looking for. At Hampton Dental, we provide professional whitening in our office and to take home to deliver you the bright and white smile of your dreams. Read on to learn more about teeth whitening and how you can benefit from this beautifying service.
Why Are My Teeth Stained?
Unfortunately, stains and discoloration will happen inevitably as you get older. However, there are also lifestyle choices and habits that can affect the whiteness of your teeth. Routinely drinking beverages like red wine and coffee will cause stains, especially if you don’t brush and floss daily. Additionally, foods that are rich in color like marinara sauce or blueberries can cause discoloration in your smile. Poor habits like regular smoking, tobacco use, and heavy alcohol consumption can also lead to stained teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Dr. Sai Lavanya Peramala offers in-office teeth whitening to give her patients effective results in the fastest time possible. Using professional-grade whitening gel and a special activation lamp, she can whiten your teeth with safety and precision. This treatment takes about an hour to complete and you’ll leave our office with a smile that is up to 8 shades whiter.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you want the benefits of professional whitening in the comfort of your own home, we offer custom-made at-home whitening kits. These personalized whitening trays fit your teeth to provide an even and effective treatment. Simply wear your whitening trays with our professional-grade gel as instructed and start noticing results after a few weeks.
Patients report lackluster results and even discomfort when using whitening kits bought in-store, which is why we customize our at-home treatment for your smile to give you the results that you want.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Results will vary, but most patients find that they can enjoy a white smile for 3 to 6 months after treatment. This time can be shorter or longer, depending on how you care for your teeth. You can avoid eating and drinking foods and beverages that are rich in color. You should also try to quit the use of tobacco and routine alcohol consumption for a whiter smile.
It’s paramount that you maintain a proper oral healthcare routine if you want to maintain healthy, bright, and white teeth. This means daily brushing and flossing as well as visits to our office for regular dental appointments. Dr. Peramala can also provide you with touchup treatments to keep your smile whiter for a longer period of time. These touchups especially come in handy for upcoming photos, activities, interviews, or other events.
