Are your teeth yellowed, discolored, or stained? Do you dream of a more brilliant, radiant smile? Ask Dr. Anthony Gonzalez about teeth whitening in Corpus Christi, Texas. After examining your teeth, our dentist will tell you whether or not teeth whitening would be effective for your smile. Whitening products may not correct all types of discolorations. For instance, yellowed teeth typically bleach well, brown-tinted teeth bleach less well, and gray-hued teeth may not bleach well at all. Keep in mind that any bonding, tooth-colored fillings, or crowns will not be affected by the teeth whitening process and may stand out if you whiten your teeth.

Our office offers take-home whitening kits. These kits consist of a mouth guard-like tray and a gel whitening product. Our dentist will custom fit your tray to your smile for a comfortable fit. Wear the tray with gel as prescribed by Dr. Anthony Gonzalez. Generally, patients wear the tray for a couple of hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.

To maintain the effects of teeth whitening, we recommend that you brush and floss daily. Also, avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages like:

  • Black tea and coffee
  • Red and white wines
  • Sports drinks
  • Carbonated drinks
  • Berries
  • Strongly colored foods
  • Sauces like tomato, soy, and curry
