Cosmetic Dentistry

As we age, the natural brightness of our teeth can become dull or faded—even with good oral health and habits.

Thankfully, professional teeth whitening treatments can reverse enamel staining and give you back a youthful and polished smile. 

How Teeth Whitening Works

Your enamel has tiny, microscopic pores that allow food particles to dull your smile. Over time, your enamel can thin, making the yellow layer of dentin visible. If you drink coffee, wine, or eat acidic foods, you could be contributing to the stains that start appearing on your teeth. Smoking tobacco is also a common culprit to yellow teeth. 

Professional teeth whitening can remove stains and whiten your smile by eight shades, and usually in under an hour. If you prefer whitening your teeth at home, we also offer custom take-home kits for your convenience. 

Dental Cleanings in Bastrop, TX

At CS Family Dentistry, we recommend getting a professional dental cleaning before your teeth whitening treatment. We can remove any plaque or tartar to ensure smooth and consistent results. While teeth whitening is not permanent, we can offer tips on how to maintain your white teeth for up to a year. We also provide touch-ups when needed to keep your teeth as bright as possible.
