Our Teeth Whitening Options in Cibolo

In-Office Whitening - An in-office whitening treatment is the most effective way to drastically alter the shade of your teeth. We can lighten your teeth by up to 10 shades in a single session! Depending on the severity of your discoloration, you could need just one session or a few. 

The process involves applying a whitening agent made of peroxide to your teeth. Your teeth will be cleaned before applying the peroxide. We take precautions to protect the soft tissue of your mouth so the peroxide does not come into contact with your gums or lips with the use of protective gel and a cheek protractor.

We activate the bleaching agent with UV light and repeat this process a few times until we’ve whitened all of the teeth, which takes about one hour. We use a shade guide at the beginning and end of your treatment to determine what shade your teeth are from start to finish. 

We recommend getting your teeth whitened in the dental chair if you have a special event coming up and would like an instant drastic change to the appearance of your teeth.

Take-Home Whitening - Similar to in-office whitening, your teeth will be whitened with the use of a peroxide bleaching agent. However, instead of applying this substance to the teeth chair-side and activating it with UV light, we will create custom-fit whitening trays for you to wear at home.

These whitening trays are created to fit perfectly over your teeth by taking impressions of your mouth and sending them to a dental lab for tray construction. By using teeth impressions to create your trays, the whitening agent does not come into contact with your gums, unlike with over-the-counter trays.

After taking your impressions, it will take a couple of weeks for us to receive your trays. You will return to the dental office for a tray fitting and leave with your take-home whitening kit.

Which Teeth Whitening Treatment is right for me?

To choose which whitening treatment is right for you, a few things need to be accounted for, such as time, convenience, why you are opting for the treatment, and how drastic of a result you are looking for. 

Our at-home whitening treatment is best for patients who are looking for whitening maintenance or to improve their overall teeth appearance but do not necessarily have a special event coming up and can afford to wait 2 weeks to reap the full benefits. It is also incredibly convenient to be able to whiten your teeth from home so those with little time and who do not want to sit in the dental office for an appointment tend to prefer this option.

If you have an upcoming special event such as a wedding, dance, party, or business opportunity, the in-office whitening treatment is likely a better option for you. This whitening treatment takes just one hour to achieve drastically whiter teeth and you do not have to worry about doing it incorrectly because the dentist will take care of the entire treatment for you.

The best way to determine which whitening treatment is right for you is to come in for a consultation. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Niraj Patel, contact us at Cibolo Family Smiles today.
