What Is Laser Teeth Whitening?

If you have a dull or yellowed grin, professional teeth whitening is an easy and convenient way to brighten your smile. Tooth enamel may become stained or discolored by tea, coffee, wine, certain foods, and the use of tobacco as we age. Our full-service dental practice is pleased to offer efficient laser teeth whitening as a cosmetic procedure that can enhance your smile and make you look younger. Zoom! in-office whitening can quickly brighten your teeth by several shades for a more vibrant smile in just one visit. Find out how you can refresh the look of your smile with professional teeth whitening from Made Ya Smile Spring Cypress by scheduling an appointment with our Houston, TX dentist.

Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

Adults or teens who wish to brighten their smile may benefit from laser teeth whitening. This professional in-office treatment lightens the shade of your tooth enamel by dissolving yellow coloration or deep stains on the teeth. Sometimes performed as a single treatment, professional laser teeth whitening may also be a part of your comprehensive smile makeover plan. A personalized consultation with our dentist can help you decide if our Zoom! in-office whitening is the right way to achieve your desired smile results. Laser teeth whitening may right for you if your teeth have acquired stubborn stains from drinking or eating certain foods (like coffee), chew tobacco, or have overall poor oral hygiene.

It is important, before opting for laser teeth whitening, that your mouth is healthy and free of decay and gum disease. During your consultation, we will closely look at your mouth and chat with you to discover your cosmetic goals for this treatment. Fillings, crowns, or veneers or your front teeth will not change color during your whitening procedure. In these cases, it may be the best course of treatment to whiten the teeth and then change out any apparent restorations to ensure that they blend with the new, brighter shade of enamel.

What Can I Expect With In-Office Teeth Whitening?

Our highly trained team performs Zoom! in-office laser whitening on-site in our treatment rooms in just an hour. This procedure does not require numbing with local anesthetic, but if you have a strong gag reflex, a mild sedation solution may be used for your comfort. We will first polish your teeth to remove any plaque or surface debris and then rinse and dry your teeth. Once the teeth are prepared, we will place a special protective barrier over your gums and soft tissues to keep the whitening gel from coming into contact with these surfaces. You will wear a special pair of glasses to shield your eyes from the powerful laser. We will then evenly apply a prescription-strength whitening gel to your teeth. Our laser light will be placed in front of your mouth, and once placed it will activate this solution and begin to lift away stains. Once 15 minutes have passed, we will remove and reapply the gel and reposition the light to continue the whitening process. Typically, this sequence is repeated 2 – 3 times to achieve the best results. To complete your whitening treatment, your teeth will be rinsed and dried and the protective barrier removed leaving you with a brighter smile.

How Can I Maintain My Teeth Whitening Results?

We will give you some follow-up instructions to support your whitening results once you return home. Some sensitivity to temperature may be present for a couple of days after teeth whitening. Our team will suggest ways to minimize any sensitivity and what types of foods to avoid to keep from staining your enamel or diminishing the results of your bright, new smile. We recommend that you abstain from consuming tea, coffee, soda, wine, and tobacco for the first two days following your teeth whitening. You should brush and floss your teeth right after eating or drinking dark beverages or foods and keep up with your routine cleaning visits with at Made Ya Smile Spring Cypress to keep your smile at its brightest. During your cleaning appointments, we will polish away surface stains that may occur on your teeth in time. To help you maintain your white smile, you may opt for a take-home whitening kit to make it easy to refresh your smile. We can chat with you further if you are interested in finding out more about home teeth whitening products.

Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?

Since teeth whitening is an elective, cosmetic procedure, it is not usually covered by dental insurance. We will go over your treatment costs and give you information about convenient payment options that are available. To help you achieve your smile goals, we can work with you to find a solution that fits within your budget. Made Ya Smile also accepts third-party payment plans from our financing partner, CareCredit®.
