Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

Choosing a professional teeth whitening approach for enhancing your grin is generally more effective than over-the-counter options. We combine our prescription-strength whitening gel with our powerful laser light to gently lift away deep stains on yellow discoloration from tooth enamel to create a smile that is brighter, whiter, and simply beautiful. Adults and teens who wish to give their smiles a boost may be good candidates for our Zoom! in-office whitening procedure. Our team has advanced training and experience in teeth whitening techniques and may perform this treatment as part of a total smile makeover or as an individual procedure. Most laser teeth whitening treatments are completed within a single visit but may also be paired with take-home whitening kits to maximize your results.

Teeth whitening is best performed when the mouth is healthy and free from gum disease and tooth decay. While tooth enamel will lighten with our procedure, prosthetic material like porcelain and composite resin will not. If you have fillings, crowns, bonding, or veneers in the front of your mouth, talk with our dentist to discuss the best approach for brightening and whitening your overall smile.

In-office laser teeth whitening can be effective for teeth that have a diminished cosmetic appeal due to:

• Foods and spices dark in color

• Tea, coffee, red wine, or sodas

• Tobacco products

• Yellow or aging tooth enamel

• Enamel fluorosis

• Poor oral hygiene

• Medications or illnesses

What Can I Expect With In-Office Teeth Whitening?

Whitening your teeth with a professional laser procedure is safe for your smile and typically completed in about an hour. While local anesthetic is not needed to keep you comfortable for this service, we may provide a mild sedation solution if you feel anxious or have a sensitive gag reflex. Our team will begin your procedure by polishing away any surface stains from your teeth. This removes any plaque or food debris and provides an even surface to which the whitening gel can adhere. Once your teeth are rinsed and dried, a protective barrier will be positioned over your gums and soft tissue and a pair of orange glasses will be placed over your eyes to protect against the laser light.

The next step is for our team to apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth, which is activate by our laser light. These components work together to gently dissolve stains and yellow discoloration from your tooth enamel. Every 15 minutes, we will remove the gel, apply a new application, and reposition the light in front of your teeth. To maximize the results of your teeth whitening, this process will be repeated in 2 – 3 sessions. Once your whitening procedure is complete, we will thoroughly rinse your mouth and remove the protective barriers. Our team will be sure to provide follow-up instructions for how to maintain your results after having your teeth professionally whitened.

How Can I Maintain My Teeth Whitening Results?

Following your laser teeth whitening procedure, you may notice some mild tooth sensitivity for the first few days, especially to hot and cold temperatures. We will be sure to provide you with information on how to minimize these effects along with types of foods and beverages to avoid in the initial days after your procedure. These include items that tend to stain the teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries. Avoiding the use of tobacco is also encourages. If you do consume these products, we suggest that you brush or floss immediately after to minimize any staining effects. Keeping up with your regular dental exam and cleaning visits with our Katy, TX team gives us a chance to polish off any new surface stains that accumulate and help you maintain your whitening results for a long as possible.
