How White Will My Teeth Get When I Whiten Them?

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

The results you can expect from your teeth whitening depend on many things. Mostly they depend on the type of whitening used. In-office teeth whitening with Zoom! can give you significant whitening in a very short period of time, but tends to give the most limited results overall.

Take-home whitening trays work slowly, but over time give you great results. Take-home whitening is able to remove nearly all stains on your teeth, so your results are limited only by intrinsic teeth factors, such as the natural color and thickness of your enamel. These two whitening treatments can be used together to give you quick results in the short term and great long-term results.

If you want to get teeth that are whiter than your natural tooth enamel allows, you need to consider a whitening method that covers your natural enamel, such as porcelain veneers. Because porcelain veneers replace the outward surface of your natural enamel with custom-colored porcelain, so your teeth can be any shade you desire.

During your teeth whitening consultation with Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young, you will learn what results you may be able to expect from each technique. Please contact Woodlands Premier Dentistry today to schedule your consultation.
