Teeth Whitening in Keller, TX
Teeth stains and discoloration can occur even with excellent dental hygiene due to unavoidable things like the foods and beverages we consume. However, in most cases, you can erase stains and restore your smile’s youthful appearance with professional teeth whitening at Sky Creek Dental.
What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Though the name of the treatment is self-descriptive, teeth whitening can be applied in a variety of methods, including the use of over-the-counter (OTC) products that claim to offer amazing results at home. Though convenient, OTC teeth whiteners are significantly diluted and may offer little or no satisfactory results. Professional teeth whitening describes the application of a highly potent but safe bleaching agent, either during a single visit to our office in Keller or from the comfort of your own home.
At Sky Creek Dental, we can design a set of custom whitening trays that rest comfortably over your teeth. These trays allow you to apply the professional bleaching agent properly and evenly for a couple of hours each day. In as little as two weeks, professional teeth whitening can erase teeth stains and brighten your smile up to 10 shades. Or, if you prefer more immediate results, we can schedule an in-office whitening treatment that can achieve similar results in as little as one hour.
Common Questions About Teeth Whitening
Will teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
Some patients may experience a small amount of sensitivity during the teeth whitening treatment. If sensitivity does occur, it is often temporary and will dissipate a few days after the completion of your whitening treatments. There are a couple of desensitizing treatments and kinds of toothpaste that can also be used to help treat or prevent tooth sensitivity.
What To Do After Teeth Whitening?
The idea of going through teeth whitening for a smile you absolutely love probably sounds like an experience that is well worth it. Once you find out that it’s a comfortable, convenient option, following through with it is almost too easy. That is until you start wondering what you can expect once the treatment is over.

How long do teeth whitening results last?
Teeth whitening results are relatively stable and consistent, leaving you with a sparkling smile long after your treatment – from several months to even years! However, there are a few things that can make teeth lose some of their brightness. Certain habits like diet or smoking may affect the span of your whitening results. Fortunately, touch-up treatments are quick and easy at our office in Keller, helping you get that bright smile back.
What if teeth whitening isn’t enough?
Before prescribing a professional teeth whitening treatment, the doctors at Sky Creek Dental will perform a thorough examination to determine the exact nature of your teeth stains. If stains originate from within the tooth, or if the discoloration indicates a tooth infection or internal damage, then you might require a more comprehensive solution, such as tooth bonding/contouring or porcelain veneers.
