Teeth Whitening in West Austin TX

Do you find yourself wishing you could show off a bright, white, dazzling smile, but instead feeling embarrassed by discolored teeth? Whether you have small stains, allover discoloration, yellowed, or darkened teeth, professional teeth whitening can greatly improve the appearance of your smile. Keep in mind that your teeth change in color as part of the natural aging process. In addition, certain medications may cause your teeth to discolor. Dr. Jaeckle will examine your smile to determine which teeth whitening system best suits your unique needs.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment in which your dentist will apply a bleaching gel formula to your teeth, which reaches beneath your teeth’s surface to reach hard-to-reach stains that daily brushing and over-the-counter whitening products cannot address.

Dr. Jaeckle offers both in-office teeth whitening and take-home whitening. By visiting our office, you may achieve a smile several shades whiter within a single treatment. With Zoom!™ Whitening, we place a protective covering over your lips and gums and apply  a powerful bleaching gel. We then activate the bleaching gel. In as little as 45 minutes, you can achieve a noticeably brighter smile.

Or, you may select a take-home whitening treatment. Dr. Jaeckle will take impressions of your teeth. A dental professional will create custom-fitted trays in office for you to use at home with whitening gel. Most trays are ready to be taken home the same day they are created. By wearing your trays approximately one hour a day for one week, you will see a brighter, whiter smile. Regular cleanings and whitening touch-ups will keep your teeth healthy and pearly white.


What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

You may not realize how greatly your discolored smile affects your daily life. In addition to harming your confidence, the repercussions may cause you to hesitate in situation that may offer you success, such as going for a promotion or meeting new people. Consider the benefits of teeth whitening when deciding whether this treatment is right for you:

  • Removes surface stains, and deeper stains you cannot reach with daily brushing and flossing or over-the-counter products
  • Whitens your teeth several shades, for a brighter, dazzling smile
  • Professional teeth whitening is formulated for sensitive teeth, and to prevent sensitivity, so most individuals can enjoy whiter teeth without sacrificing comfort
  • By visiting your dentist and our team regularly, and practicing good daily hygiene, your whiter smile will last several months, or even several years

Am I A Good Candidate?

If you feel dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile because of yellowing, stains, or general discoloration, you may make an excellent candidate for teeth whitening. However, teeth whitening is formulated for natural teeth. If your smile is composed primarily of prosthetics, you may need to discuss other options with Dr. Jaeckle. In addition, if you have severe stains, your dentist may suggest an alternative service, such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns, to guide you toward the beautiful smile you deserve.
