Tyler Teeth Whitening

Happy woman with beautiful smileIf you want to brighten your smile, chances are you’ve already tried one or more store bought teeth whitening products. These whiteners promise dramatic results, but they are typically unable to deliver on these promises. At Stansbury Dental, we are happy to offer professional teeth whitening solutions that can brighten your smile up to ten shades. We use the Spa Dent system in our Tyler dental practice. Skilled Tyler cosmetic dentist, Dennis E. Stansbury, DDS, offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening services. Call our team to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation today. We’ll evaluate your smile, and help you find the best treatment to brighten your smile.

Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Your teeth can become discolored for a number of reasons, and before we recommend any teeth whitening treatment, we’ll want to discover the underlying cause of your dental stains. Some of the most common causes of dental discoloration include:

  • Consuming dark foods or drinks
  • Aging and tooth wear that reveals yellow dentin below the enamel
  • Over consumption of fluoride as teeth develop can lead to fluorosis stains
  • Tetracycline medications can stain teeth if taken during dental development

What is Spa Dent?

Spa Dent is a unique professional teeth whitening system. It uses a combination of carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide xyliprox to create a neutral PH balance. That means the dental sensitivity often experienced following teeth whitening is not a problem. The Spa Dent system offers two types of in-office teeth whitening as well as customizable take-home teeth whitening kits.

How Does Spa Dent Work?

Spa dent has two in-office teeth whitening options. For a quick touch up or small boost during any teeth cleaning appointment, we can use the Boost Brightening system. Boost Brightening takes just ten minutes, and patients can brighten teeth as much as four shades. The Flex Whitening system offers more advanced results, up to ten shades brighter in just 20 to 40 minutes. Both Boost Brightening and Flex Whitening utilize low heat LED lights to accelerate the teeth whitening process. Whichever option you choose, the Spa Dent system delivers brighter smiles without dental sensitivity.

Can I Whiten At-Home?

Absolutely. Spa Dent offers at-home teeth whitening plans as well. These take-home kits use professional doses of whitening gel and customized application trays to achieve the same results possible with in-office treatment.  You’ll need to use your at-home whitening kits as directed each day for ten days to see the smile brightening results you’re after. There are both light activated and nonlight activated kits to meet your needs.
