Teeth Whitening Procedures Houston

At Vivid Dental, we want all of our patients to enjoy a beautiful smile they can feel confident in sharing. This is why we offer Houston area patients with quality, professional teeth whitening procedures to enhance the natural beauty of their smiles. Natural teeth can whiten up to eight shades whiter with our KöR whitening system available through our practice.


Teeth whitening procedures such as the KöR whitening system are effective because they are stronger concentrations than the whitening products available over-the-counter at the local drug stores. At Vivid Dental, we use the KöR whitening system because it is proven effective and safe with monitoring by a quality dental team. KöR whitening is a combination of both in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening trays.


To start the teeth whitening procedure, patients must first consult with Dr. Monti Harpalani to determine candidacy for treatment. Whitening does not whiten restorations such as bridges and crowns, so this must be taken into consideration before opting for a whitening treatment.


Once patients are determined proper candidates, they can then schedule their whitening appointment. The first step required is a professional teeth cleaning. This removes all plaque and tartar from the teeth to ensure the whitening products perform effectively. Then, patients relax as the in-office procedure is done. Dr. Monti Harpalani applies barrier gel to the gums to protect them from the whitening agent, which is applied next onto the teeth. The whitening gel pulls stains from deep within the teeth in approximately one hour. Once this has been completed, the teeth are cleaned again to remove the barrier gel and whitening gel from the surfaces.


Then, impressions of the dental arch are made to fabricate plastic trays, which are sent home with the patient along with whitening gel. This can be used at home every day to whiten even more. Patients can also use this whitening product to maintain the results by using once a month for a few days to keep the smile bright and beautiful!
