Teeth Whitening In Richmond, TX

Grand Mission Dentistry
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in America. Millions of people either get professional teeth whitening every year, or use at-home whitening products for a brighter, shinier smile.

Because teeth whitening is affordable, non-invasive, and totally safe, it’s a great way to make your smile more attractive, and provide you with a boost of self-confidence. And Richmond dentist, Dr. Sung, of Grand Mission Dentistry has the teeth whitening services you’re looking for!

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

All teeth whitening products, whether consumer-grade or professional-grade, use the same basic principle for whitening teeth.
Essentially, tooth whitening products “bleach” your teeth using powerful peroxides. Usually, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is used.
Peroxides contain oxygen molecules that react powerfully upon contact with the molecules that discolor your teeth. This breaks the molecular bonds that hold discoloration in place, removing surface stains from your tooth enamel.

What Can Teeth Whitening Treat?

Teeth whitening can treat surface staining of any kind, from yellowing due to age or tobacco use, to stains caused by dark beverages such as coffee, wine, and tea.
Teeth whitening can only treat staining and discoloration on the exterior of teeth. Teeth that are discolored due to metal-amalgam fillings, staining caused by antibiotics like tetracycline, or root canal therapy will not benefit from teeth whitening.
What Is The Difference Between In-Office and At-Home Teeth Whitening?
There is no difference in effectiveness between in-office and at-home teeth whitening received from Grand Mission Dentistry. Dr. Sung uses KOR Teeth Whitening products for both in-office and at-home treatments.
In-office teeth whitening is the best way to get a brighter smile. First, Dr. Sung will clean your teeth thoroughly. Then, you will be given take-home trays for two weeks. This preparation process is added so that the in-office whitening is that much more effective.
Once you return to the practice, Dr. Sung will use a special compound to protect your gums during the bleaching process. This is done without a potentially harmful UV light. Instead, a highly-concentrated KOR whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The gel will do all of the bleaching without unnecessary additives. No extra steps are needed to give you beautiful, bright teeth. In as little as one appointment, you can get a smile that’s 5-10 shades brighter.
At-home teeth whitening is very similar. Dr. Sung will take impressions of your teeth and create a set of custom KOR whitening trays just for you. Instead of returning to the practice, you can simply wear these trays at home as directed by your dentist.
At-home teeth whitening usually takes a bit longer than in-office whitening, as it does not use a UV lamp to “cure” the whitening compound, but the end results are similar.

I’ve never had such a positive experience with work being done. I actually was able to relax and it was over before I knew it!Mays recently did my cleaning and she was thorough and did a great job! Definitely recommend this office and team!

Visiting the dentist can often be an experience filled with anxiety and discomfort, but my recent visit to Grand Mission Dentistry, specifically with Angela, transformed that stereotype into a remarkable and pleasant memory. A Wonderful experience.Everyone in office is nice and helpful. Special acknowledgement for Angela who did amazing with my cleaning. She took the time to thoroughly explain each process from the simplest cleaning to more complex treatments, ensuring I understood every step. Her amazing skills, coupled with her gentle approach and patience, make dental visits for me far less daunting. She is highly recommended ! 🙂
