Teeth Whitening in El Paso, TX
Good oral hygiene can lead to a bright smile, but sometimes other factors like genetics, environment, and diet can cause stubborn discolorations that are very difficult to lighten without professional help. Having teeth that are stained can inhibit you from fully expressing yourself and making the best first impression.
At Marquez Dental, we offer both chairside whitening for instant results and take home trays for whitening at your convenience. Our practice serves the cosmetic dental needs of El Paso, Sunland Park, and the neighboring communities.
When Should I Whiten My Teeth?
Anytime you want a brighter smile and a boost of confidence is a good time to undergo whitening. Many of our patients come in for professional teeth whitening prior to a special event, such as a wedding, important meeting, or job interview.
What is the Procedure Like?
For in office treatment – When instant results are desired, we use Opalescence® Boost professional whitening. Dr. Marquez will make sure you are comfortable in the chair while he activates the whitener. He then applies the special gel to your teeth, and in under an hour, you will have a smile that is eight to ten shades lighter.
For at home whitening - When you choose to whiten at home, our El Paso dentist will take custom impressions of your teeth. You receive the trays made from these impressions and the Opalescence professional take-home whitening gel the same day, with instructions on how often and how long you should wear them for optimal results.
With both the in-office and take-home variations of this whitening system, there are few instances of discomfort. Opalescence contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, a formula that consistently reduces gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
Prosthetics and Whitening
Porcelain restorations cannot be whitened. When a patient is coming in for a crown or veneers, we will often recommend whitening the rest of the smile beforehand. That way, the color of your new teeth will not stand out when compared with their neighbors. Especially if whitening is performed in the future, the end result is a uniform aesthetic.
