Over the years many different substances can stain teeth, leaving them yellow, and discolored. Wine, nicotine, and coffee can all have a staining effect on the color of teeth and their brightness. At Rayburn & Hilliard, DDS our teeth whitening in Houston TX is a great way to restore teeth back to their natural condition using dental bleaching. The whitening procedure can be done in just a few trips to our office or by using our take home trays. Both methods are simple and take just a few minutes in our dental chair.
Before your teeth whitening in Houston TX, we’ll perform a full and comprehensive exam. We recommend patients receive a regular teeth cleaning before their teeth whitening session in order to get teeth in their best condition for whitening. For those who wish to do the procedure at home, the method is just as easy and simple. First, we’ll make a mold of your teeth so we can provide you with custom made trays that ensure that the whitening solution covers only the teeth and doesn’t irritate the surrounding gums. Because whitening solution can be irritating to any other part of the mouth but the teeth themselves. The take home trays can be done anytime, anywhere. Some patients are recommended to leave them in overnight.
Should you choose to have your teeth whitening done in our offices you’ll come in for one to three appointments depending on the level of whitening needed. We first apply a paste to the teeth to reduce any sensitivity. Then we apply bleaching gel to the teeth to break up any stains and discoloration present. Most bleaching procedures take a half an hour to 45 minutes. With proper care and oral hygiene routines, teeth whitening in Houston TX procedures can last up to a year or more, depending on maintenance.
Are you unhappy because you never were able to have your teeth straightened when you were a child? If so, we have some great news for you. Today adults and teens are able to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign invisible braces. This means that at our cosmetic dentistry practice, patients are able to have their teeth straightened in a manner which will allow them to have discrete orthodontic care. Since the Invisalign clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn, this means that patients are able to attend work, social gatherings, and school without anyone even knowing that they are having their teeth straightened. If you are interested in learning if you are a good candidate for Houston Invisalign, we hope you will come and visit our cosmetic dentistry practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS.
At our cosmetic dentistry practice, our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn and Dr. Russell R. Hilliard. If you are thinking about getting treatment with Houston Invisalign, you can be very confident when you come to our office because our office is a Certified Invisalign Provider. You are able to come to our office for a complimentary consultation to see if treatment with Invisalign will work for you. Unfortunately, Invisalign cannot be used to correct all smile situations, but there are many different types of smile problems which can be corrected using Invisalign. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign invisible braces, our dentist will use CAD/CAM computer technology to have a personalized set of aligners created just for you. Depending on the bite situation being corrected, your set of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Aligners are worn sequentially, for two weeks at a time.
Other reasons why our patients thoroughly enjoy treatment with Houston Invisalign is that patients are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment process. This is because the clear plastic aligners are removed while you eat. Additionally, the aligners are removed during teeth cleaning so that your teeth can be as healthy at the end of treatment, as they were at the beginning of treatment. Whether you are an adult who is interested in being treated with Invisalign, or a teenager who would be treated with Invisalign Teen, contact us today for an appointment to meet with our cosmetic dentist.
