Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most affordable cosmetic dentistry solutions to revitalize your smile. Even with the most diligent oral hygiene regimen, it is common for teeth to become discolored over time due to staining agents such as red wine, coffee, tea, colas, or cigarettes. Dr. Heather Fleschler can help you reverse the effects of these staining agents with a teeth whitening procedure.
Dr. Fleschler offers several different teeth whitening options in order to accommodate your unique individual needs. Your procedure can restore a bright, dazzling smile and make you look several years younger.
The best way to determine the right option for your unique oral health condition and aesthetic goals is to speak with Dr. Fleschler in person. Please call (713) 660-6500 today to schedule a consultation at our West University cosmetic dentistry office.
Teeth Whitening Options
Dr. Fleschler offers both in-office and professional grade at-home teeth whitening options to help you brighten your smile. These include:
If you prefer to have your teeth whitening treatment completed in one short office visit under the supervision of Dr. Fleschler, then our in-office services may be the best option for you. However, if you prefer to gradually whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home over several weeks, you may want to consider one of our at-home whitening options.
In-Office Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost
For in-office teeth whitening procedures, Dr. Fleschler uses Opalescence Boost. Your treatment will be completed in one office visit lasting just under an hour.
Opalescence Boost uses a chemically activated bleaching agent to brighten your smile, eliminating the heat or ultraviolet ray exposure associated with many of the other teeth whitening systems on the market. The treatment is formulated with fluoride and potassium nitrate, which will decrease sensitivity and strengthen your tooth enamel. This ensures optimal safety, comfort and results. You can typically expect your results to last for several years.
Professional Grade At-Home Teeth Whitening Solutions
Dr. Fleschler offers two at-home teeth whitening options, allowing you to achieve your desired results in the comfort of your own home:
- Opalescence Go
- Opalescence Custom Whitening Trays
The Opalescence Go is our most popular at-home teeth whitening option. It uses disposable, pre-filled whitening trays which are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth. The powerful whitening gel only needs to be worn for 15-20 minutes per day. Depending on your desired results, Dr. Fleschler may recommend a treatment lasting between 5-10 days.
The Opalescence Custom Whitening Trays are completely tailored to your smile, ensuring optimal results. Dr. Fleschler can vary the strength of the whitening gel to customize your treatment to your unique needs. Depending on the strength chosen, you may need to wear the trays for 30 minutes daily, several hours daily, or overnight. Your treatment will typically last between 7-10 days.
