Tooth Whitening

Over time teeth can become discolored or stained, often due to smoking, coffee, tea, colas, or dark fruit juices. Tooth whitening is a safe, inexpensive solution to brighten your teeth in a relatively short time period. Restorations and endodontically treated teeth do not whiten as effectively, so the dentist must evaluate your teeth to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.

What does tooth whitening involve?

While there are several methods of tooth whitening, we have found the most effective and reliable treatment is by using at-home bleaching trays.  This procedure involves two appointments.  At the first appointment, we take impressions of your upper and lower teeth.  We then fabricate thin plastic trays that are closely adapted to your teeth.  At the second appointment, we give you the trays along with the bleaching gel and discuss how to use them.  Each appointment usually lasts 20-30 minutes, and you do not have to be numb.

  • “I had to find a new dentist in 1977. I elected to try the new Byron Dental Group, which had just opened. I’ve been going there for 30 years and I sure made the right choice. The staff is excellent; they use up-to-date equipment and resources, all generating a more personal touch.”

  • “I was a patient at the Byron Dental Group for over 20 years. A career change brought me to Texas. My new dentist told me I needed several thousands-of-dollars’ worth of work. I called and scheduled an appointment at the Byron Dental Group while returning for the holidays. Their second opinion revealed no such work was needed. I really appreciate their honesty.”
