Teeth Whitening in Houston
One of the most common cosmetic dental issues is teeth that are dull or discolored. Not only are yellowed teeth less-than-attractive, they can age you and cause you to feel self-conscious when smiling. Professional teeth whitening, available from Mills Dental Group, is a simple, pain-free way to start looking your best. Mills Dental Group has been providing advanced cosmetic dentistry treatments to the Houston, Katy and Sugar Land, Texas area for more than 40 years and has helped countless patients improve the appearance of their pearly whites.

The Causes of Teeth Discoloration
There are a number of factors that can cause the teeth to appear dull or discolored. Some of the most common include:
- Consuming abrasive drinks such as coffee and soda
- Eating abrasive foods
- Use of certain medications
- Poor oral hygiene habits
While most causes of tooth discoloration are avoidable, it can be difficult to maintain a bright, white smile, even for patients who follow strict oral hygiene habits. Mills Dental Group works closely with patients to understand the specific causes of their tooth discoloration and recommend the treatments that will work best with their goals and their lifestyle.
Mills Dental Group understands that you may not have the time to schedule several dental appointments in order to achieve the bright, white smile you desire. Custom-fit tooth whitening trays can be used at your convenience. During an initial appointment, the dentist takes an impression of the teeth to be used as a blueprint for the creation of a customized whitening tray. After the tray is created, an effective whitening gel and instructions for use are given to the patient. In most cases, you may only need to wear the tray for a short period of time during the day. The length of time it takes to whiten your smile will depend on several factors including the frequency of use as well as the degree of change you’d like to see.
Zoom!™ In-Office Teeth Whitening
For patients who prefer to receive all of their teeth whitening treatments in-office, Mills Dental Group is proud to provide the Zoom!® teeth whitening system. This advanced procedure can brighten your teeth by several shades in just one appointment in the office. During the procedure, a specially formulated gel, consisting of peroxide and other active ingredients, is placed on the teeth. The Zoom™! light is then applied to the teeth, activating the whitening ingredient in the gel. After the light has been applied for the specified amount of time, a fluoride treatment is administered to protect the teeth. The treatment, which takes about two hours, can dramatically improve your appearance in one easy appointment.
