Teeth Whitening: Get the Smile You Deserve!

Newlyweds show off their bright white smiles

Take a walk down the oral hygiene aisle in any grocery store and you’ll see a wall of products that promise to whiten your teeth: whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, whitening gel you paint on your teeth, the newest two-step daily whitening system, and much more. Having so many options can feel overwhelming, but don’t worry. Your local Dripping Springs Family Dentistry is here to help!

Over-the-counter products can whiten your teeth … to a degree. It usually takes only a change of just two to three shades for others to notice, which a quality product combined with healthy eating and drinking habits can produce. But why settle for less when you could have a smile that’s up to eight shades brighter?

Our mission is to provide you with the healthy, confident smile you deserve. Both of our in-office and take-home whitening options for new patients begin with a thorough cleaning to get rid of any plaque or tartar buildup. Then comes the fun part – you get to decide how much whiter you would like your smile to be.

You may be thinking, “Eight shades is a lot! How safe is it?” Let’s talk alternatives for a second. There’s no shortage of natural methods for brightening dull and stained teeth online. Have you ever used lemon juice or apple cider vinegar as a mouthwash? Brush your teeth with activated charcoal toothpaste? The acids in citrus fruits like lemons can erode the enamel on your teeth and charcoal’s abrasive quality can wear it away. Once enough enamel is gone, you’ll see more of your teeth’s dentin, which has a naturally yellow hue – the exact opposite of what you originally intended. And even worse, enamel erosion is irreversible.

At Dripping Springs Family Dentistry, you can be assured that our treatment plans are safe and effective. We use professional whitening agents and individually prescribed products. Our team monitors the entire process from start to finish. No stress. No surprises.

An in-office teeth whitening session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes. After an initial cleaning, we’ll isolate your teeth and apply a whitening gel that does all the work while you relax. In less time than it takes to finish a movie you’ll be on your way with a great new look!

Take-home teeth whitening kits start with us preparing your prescribed product to your desired brightness. No unnaturally super-white or discolored results like you may get from an over-the-counter kit. You’ll also receive trays customized to fit comfortably over your teeth. We’ll go over the instructions according to your unique treatment plan and address any concerns you may have.

There’s one question everyone has when it comes to dental services: how much will this cost? Maybe you’ve heard about expensive whitening techniques that really break the bank. Being a responsible spender can be difficult, especially when it comes to spending on yourself. We often let ourselves fall towards the bottom of our priority list, but who better to invest in than yourself?
