Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that removes stains and discoloration for a healthier, more youthful appearance. Drs. Clark Damon and Kari Blankenship offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions at our Dallas, Amarillo, and Fort Worth, TX, offices to conveniently help you achieve a brighter smile. This simple cosmetic procedure has grown significantly in popularity in recent years. It is an easy and quick, yet effective, way to improve your confidence.
The Teeth Whitening Process
In-office and take-home whitening both offer unique benefits. We can help determine which one is right for you during an examination.
With in-office teeth whitening, we can brighten your smile by several shades in an hour or less. The entire process is designed to minimize or completely eliminate sensitivity. Drs. Damon and Blankenship have extensive training in cosmetic dentistry, so they will provide a whiter smile that still looks natural. For all of our patients who choose in-office whitening, we provide whitening trays and bleach for maintaining your results at home.
At Texas Dental Center, we offer all hygiene patients a free whitening kit.
We encourage all of our patients to undergo in-office teeth whitening and then use the take-home kit strictly for periodic touch-ups. However, we understand that take-home treatments are more convenient for some patients. If you select a take-home kit for your whitening treatment, we will provide you with whitening trays and the bleaching gel. Drs. Damon and Blankenship will also provide you with detailed instructions for use. Following these instructions will ensure you achieve a naturally whiter smile without over-whitening or damaging your teeth or gums.
Positive Effects of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening offers several benefits:
- Quick: Both in-office and take-home treatments are quick. In-office takes less than an hour to complete, while take-home treatments take 15 minutes to an hour per day for an average of two weeks.
- Low-Risk: Professional teeth whitening is not invasive and carries very few risks. With the expert supervision of Drs. Damon and Blankenship, you can avoid many of the risks other whitening methods carry, such as sensitivity and over-whitening.
- No Downtime: There is no downtime after your whitening treatment. You can return to work, school, or any other activities immediately following your treatment.
- Convenient: Take-home kits allow you to whiten or maintain your smile from the comfort of your own home. You can read, watch TV, or even do chores while you whiten.
Most importantly, patients experience improved self-confidence with a whiter smile. Not only does a whiter smile make your teeth look as healthy as they are, but they also lend a more youthful look to your smile. Many patients find they smile and laugh more after having their teeth whitened, improving their overall quality of life.
