No matter how vigilant a person is about their oral health, stains on the dental enamel develop over time from food, drinks, and tobacco, which makes the teeth seem older and darker. For an improvement to their self-esteem and appearance, a lot of patients use Opalescence tooth whitening to efficiently remove stains from their enamel and whiten their teeth several shades. Opalescence offers several options to help each patient with their individual goals and needs. Patients can pick with help from our dentists between home Opalescence teeth whitening kits and in office whitening treatments at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX. Every Opalescence whitening option uses potassium nitrate and fluoride (PF) to strengthen the enamel while whitening for stronger, healthier teeth.

"I was terrified of dentists until I became a patient of Dr Devlin. I "was" instilled with a fear of dentists since childhood in Australia (snakes, spiders and dentists are MEAN over there), maturing to adulthood I figured that ignorance was bliss and that if no teeth were black and/or falling out then I didn't need to see a dentist. Now, in my 30's, my wisdom teeth erupted and I was having issues so HAD to see a dentist, I eventually conceded that it was time to face my fear so I went to see the lucky Dr Devlin. (Who my husband had already been seeing) I brought my husband in room for moral support, Dr Devlin and his tech thought that was amusing, my husband was embarrassed but I was "happy wife". I needed my wisdom teeth removed and had more than a dozen cavities. (Oops!) For those if you afraid of needles, I've never felt a single needle stick for local anaesthetics administered by Dr Devlin. He is understanding of my irrational fear and of my medical issues and I always leave with a smile. Dr Devlin and his team are fantastic, they're flexible, cheerful, and I love their customer service. I have always been greeted by my first name as when I walk in the door, Dr Devlin asks about hubby and my fur babies at every visit (I've now had a visit or two, ya know, teeth with more holes than Swiss cheese) My irrational fear gives me some insane facial expressions and poorly timed nervous talking sessions during dental work which is less than ideal but have caused moments of uncontrollable laughter for everyone else in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would."- L.S. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2018
"NEW UPDATE!!9/26/18I had my teeth cleaned by the most knowledgeable dental hygienist ever. She was able to answer my questions while performing the most thorough cleaning possible. If you have not tried this dental office, and are looking for a great place to call your dental home, it will be impossible to find better. 9/11/17Today was my second visit to Highland, and again the experience was absolutely perfect. In fact, soboerfect, that I am going back tomorrow to get some fillings repaired and replaced. If you are looking for a new dentist, I have no problem at all recommending Highland. ORIGINAL POSTAfter spending over 20 years with an amazing dentist here in Pearland, my insurance forced me to look for a new dental home. Honestly, I was more than nervous, I was worried and extremely hesitant to make an appointment with my selected new dentist. Finally, I made an appointment and forced myself to go. When I arrived, I almost rescheduled and left for the day. I stayed, and I could not be happier. First, the young lady at the front desk went out of her way to help get my insurance information set up, and just shoot the breeze to help me relax. After no wait at all, I was welcomed by the young lady who was ready to do exrays and clean my teeth. She could not have been any kinder, or more thorough, throughout my entire exam. She actually did techniques I have never had done in 20 years, including photographing each tooth. Once the Dr came in, he was as personable as any Dr I have ever been around. He also was extremely thorough, and explained everything he was seeing, in great detail. In closing, I can only say, my day at Highland Dental could not have gone any better."- J.H. / Google / Sep 27, 2018
