Find out how in-office teeth whitening in Sugar Land can wipe away years of dental stains.

Do you have a wedding or special occasion coming up? Have you been trying to whiten your teeth at home with commercial products In-Office Whitening and home remedies but not seeing the results you want? Find out how professional in-office teeth whitening from your Sugar Land dentists Drs. Stephen P. Lukin and Mark Lukin are all you need to get the results you want.

What is professional in-office teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is different from any whitening system you see on the market. Since your Sugar Land dentists have been specially trained to brighten your smile we use high-grade whitening gels that you can’t get with commercial products. Our whitening system removes surface stains and whitens your smile while also being gentle on sensitive teeth and gum tissue.

What should I expect when I get teeth whitening from my Sugar Land dentist?

The entire process takes about 45 minutes to complete. Before your whitening session can start, your Sugar Land dentists will place a separator in your mouth to keep lips away from your teeth while we whiten them.

Then we will apply whitening gel to the eight teeth in the front (the teeth that are visible when you smile) and then direct a light beam at your teeth to activate the gel. After the gel has been activated for about 15 minutes, we will wipe it off, reapply a fresh whitening gel layer and then reactivate. Each whitening session involves three, 15-minute applications.

How bright will my smile get with professional whitening?

The results you get will vary from patient to patient and will depend on the severity of your stains and discolorations. Those with minor surface stains will experience the most significant results. Some patients may even get a smile that’s up to 10 shades whiter in just one session.

How long will my results last?

A lot will depend on how well you care for your smile after your whitening session. If you stay away from foods and drinks that can stain your teeth then your results will last longer. Furthermore, you need to brush and floss regularly and thoroughly to prevent surface stains from affecting your whiter smile. By adopting proper oral care, some patients can maintain a brighter smile for up to one year or more.

Can I get more than one whitening treatment?

If you want to maintain your results than you may want to think about getting follow-up whitening sessions every few months to keep your smile looking its best. Many of our patients come back for subsequent whitenings because it’s the easiest way to maintain their new look.
