Tooth Whitening Dallas


Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening in Dallas has never been easier! One of the first things others notice about you is your smile. Our dental procedures help you improve your smile by "turning back the clock" - repairing the damage to your teeth caused by decay, darkening caused by aging, and stains from food/drink.

Whiter teeth, in about an hour. It's that simple. Years of yellowing as well as stains from coffee, cigarettes, or red wine are almost magically erased in the time it takes for a haircut, manicure, or lunch.

LaserSmile™ tooth whitening is safe, and no other method produces a better result for anyone wanting results right away. What patients tell us is that people remark how much better or younger they look, but don't realize their improved appearance is due to whiter teeth. You won't have to worry you'll look like Ross in that Friends episode where his teeth glowed in the dark. Instead, you'll have the whiter teeth like you had as a teenager, and that makes you look younger!

Dallas cosmetic dentists vary significantly in their experience, the materials they use, the services they provide, and how they treat their patients. Don't be fooled by advertisements that advertise state-of-the-art "laser whitening", then use a conventional non-laser light source instead, such as Zoom whitening.

What is Laser tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. The laser whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The doctor then applies the proprietary LaserSmile™ Whitening Gel, which is activated by a powerful diode laser. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more.* You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.

What causes tooth discoloration?

There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening?

Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective or some as it is for others. Dr. Swift can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment.

Do many people whiten their teeth?

More people than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The LaserSmile™ tooth whitening system makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Is whitening safe?

Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, laser whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

How long do the results last?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with our take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available only through dental professionals.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and laser tooth whitening?

Yes! Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Laser whitening typically whitens your teeth eight shades in one visit. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.

How does the LaserSmile™ tooth whitening system work?

The laser activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The laser aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

How can I maintain my new whiter teeth?

Following the laser tooth whitening procedure an optional take-home touch-up kit and trays are available that can be used whenever discoloration is noticed. Most often a touch-up once every six months will maintain a whiter smile that sparkles for years. In addition, we offer our Laser White for Life Plan. Click here for more details.

What does a patient experience during the laser tooth whitening procedure?

During the procedure, patients may comfortably listen to music. Many actually fall asleep. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.

Are there any side effects?

Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.

How is exposure to the laser light controlled?

All soft tissue in and around the mouth is protected. Protective eyewear is required during the procedure.

How long does Laser Tooth Whitening take?

The complete procedure takes just over an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by several brief bleach activation sessions using the laser (a cleaning is recommended prior to the actual tooth whitening session).

  • Individual results may vary.

A Note of Assurance

Tooth whitening is a well-established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen Peroxide, the active agent in laser tooth whitening has also been safely used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue.

The whitening process is effective on most discolored teeth. Darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth.
