Fast, Painless and Cost-Effective
There are many treatments to remove stains from teeth and whiten them but the best and most effective way of whitening teeth is to have professional teeth whitening performed by an experienced Houston dentist. At home teeth whitening products, do-it-yourself, over-the-counter, whitening pens, whitening strips, and whitening trays are ineffective methods because they do not allow for long-lasting whitening and can not be accurately customized to a desired level of whiteness. If you are looking for the best teeth whitening services or teeth bleaching treatments, NW Dental in Northwest Houston and Cypress will give you safe, fast and permanent dental whitening treatments to bring out your most beautiful smile.

Laser Teeth Whitening in Houston and Cypress
Today, laser teeth whitening is one of the most widely used treatments for fast and safe teeth whitening since it can be done easily during a dental visit at one of our dental clinics in Northwest Houston or Cypress. Tooth whitening or bleaching with laser is cost-effective, and the least invasive treatment for professional teeth whitening. The laser light is composed of LED lights, halogen, or plasma arc and is sometimes called light-accelerated or power bleaching. The procedure is simple. Our dentist will first gently apply a specific amount of bleaching gel to your teeth. Then, using a painless laser light that has been configured for your specific teeth, the LED is aimed at your teeth to activate the gel. The procedure usually takes around 45-60 minutes in which you will be comfortably seated in a reclining chair. You can easily use your phone with both hands or enjoy a movie or youtube on a TV screen in front of you.

Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth
Some patients who have sensitive teeth may be put off by teeth whitening due to concerns of pain. However, people with sensitive teeth can still have their teeth whitened and our dentists will explain to your what the best options for you are. Tooth whitening usually involves gels which act as a bleaching agent and contain carbamide or hydrogen peroxide. People who have sensitive teeth have exposed dentin which can be sensitive to these chemicals. Our dentists will assess your teeth and let you know if they think dental whitening is good for you or if you will need bleaching gels that are buffered, meaning they are less reactive to sensitive teeth.
What To Do After Having Your Teeth Whitened
After having your teeth whitened it is important to maintain and protect your beautiful new smile by avoiding the following foods and drinks that cause tooth stains:
- Coffee, tea, and wine
- Acidic drinks like sodas, sports or energy drinks
- Foods such as berries and tomatoes which are deep in color
- Any tobacco products
- Foods with artificial sweeteners
- Hard candies
Teeth bleaching is not permanent and excessive eating or drinking of staining substances will reduce whitening results from treatment. You do not have to completely remove these from your diet but you must take them with moderation, and you must always remember to brush and floss regularly.
