As time passes it’s not uncommon for you to experience for stains to darken the teeth in your smile. This could be compounded by other imperfections like past dental work that no longer matches the current shade of your tooth enamel. In a situation like this, many people will consult with the dental professionals at Alan L. Nix DDS to get a better understanding of their whitening options.

Our staff has the training and experience needed to help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.

Whitening strips are basically clear plastic strips that have been treated with a special topical form of topical hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth. While the whitening strips are in your mouth you will need to avoid drinking, eating and using tobacco products.

Unfortunately, the concentration of whitening agents on whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on teeth. Deep stains from regularly consuming dark foods and drinks and tobacco stained enamel can only be safely and effectively whitened by Alan L. Nix DDS’s dental bleaching procedure.

If you have questions or would like gain a better understanding of your whitening options, please feel free to call Alan L. Nix DDS’s offices in Terrell, Texas, at 972-563-7633 to set up an appointment.
