Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
Question: Does Dr. Truong provide in-office teeth whitening?
Answer: Yes. Our office-based procedure involves your Dallas TX dentist applying a powerful bleaching gel to your teeth. Using a special light, she will then activate the whitening ingredients. In less than an hour, you can receive a brighter smile.
Question: Can I brighten my smile from home?
Answer: Yes. Dr. Truong offers a convenient at-home teeth whitening system. First, you will come to the office where your Dallas TX dentist will take an impression of your teeth. Using this impression, she will create a custom-made set of whitening trays and prescribe a special bleaching solution. Each day, you will wear the gel-filled trays for a specified amount of time. In about two weeks, your teeth can be brightened by multiple shades.
Question: Will porcelain veneers address permanent teeth stains?
Answer: Yes. In some cases, a stain may be permanent. Also known as intrinsic discoloration, these stains develop in the inner tooth structure, below the surface. To mask these stains, Dr. Truong may recommend porcelain veneers. Made from thin shells of stain-resistant porcelain, the veneers will be placed onto the surface of your teeth. Veneers look natural and provide years of quality restoration, covering any unsightly teeth stains.
Question: What can I do to keep my smile bright?
Answer: Keeping your smile bright following a whitening procedure requires regular dental care. In addition to always attending cleanings and checkups, you should brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. This cleanses the mouth of the harmful bacteria and food particles that increase the risk of discoloration.
