"Found this dentist ofc thru my employer insurance info. Great Service! Soo professional, friendly, and informative, and competent! The staff was so helpful, Dr. Mary Swift, "Liz" (hygienist), and the front desk personnel was awesome! Customer Service at it's best! I was/am very impressed! You will not be disappointed in your visit."- G.M. / Google / Jun 08, 2018
"I am so happy I went to see Dr. Swift as a fourth consultation for my tetracycline stained teeth. The stains lifted to a nice pretty white in about 2 weeks with the at home whitening system I purchased through her office. My regular dentist plus two cosmetic dentists told me that I could not remove the tetracycline stain from my teeth with bleaching because the stain was so bad. One local dentist even tried to sell me on a 'Smile Lift' in addition to 10 veneers on the top. I'm still in shock that this was so easy!!"- A.R. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2018
"You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well let me try NOT to use a thousand words to express my gratitude of the AMAZING job Dr. Mary Swift & her team did for my smile. Where do I start first? First of all when you first come into the office everyone & I mean everyone greets you with the utmost respect & curtesy. When I met Dr. Swift she was so thrilled to be working on my case that she already had some great ideas on how she wanted to execute getting me the best possible smile imaginable.They gave such great care & dedication in making sure my work was done effectively & efficiently that when I broke one of my temporary teeth (eating banana flavored taffy) they got me in right away to make the repairs. Dr. Swift also sent my permanent teeth back to the lab when it wasn't up to her specifications. My temporary smile looked so good that I almost didn't want to trade it in for the permanent but when I DID I couldn't do anything but cry streams of tears down my face because unlike most people I had never shown my teeth to anyone except close friends & family. The level of work that she did was so impeccable that I now can't even stop smiling. It's an extraordinary transformation from who I once was to who I am today. Getting this dental work done has truly changed my life & I will forever be grateful."- L.F. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2018
"Straightforward & fast working. Easily can got an appointment. Felt very comfortable & when you get inside the office & sit on the dental chair you feel at ease. Will be back for my crown in 2 weeks. I never dread or think of pain when I visit a dentist after my consult & procedure with Dr. Swift. Excellent service"- V.P. / ZocDoc / Jan 03, 2018
Most Dallas Laser Dentistry patients can benefit from a whiter, brighter smile. Natural aging and staining food and drink, such as coffee, tea, colas, red wine, and tobacco, make the teeth darker and yellow. Tooth discoloration can also be caused during tooth formation, from certain antibiotics, and excessive fluoride. Tooth whitening helps patients to have a younger, more dazzling smile.
What to Expect
Zoom! Whitening takes place over three 15-minute sessions. The dentist uses a special UV light to activate the hydrogen peroxide gel, so the patient’s eyes, lips and gums must be completely protected throughout the process. The gel works with the UV light to break up and remove stains. Patients are recommended to have a routine teeth cleaning prior to the procedure. Some patients may experience minor tingling immediately after the procedure. While whitening results can be seen immediately, a dramatically whiter smile can be seen in one or two weeks. Patients will be given home-use touch-up kits to maintain the whitening effects.
Plan Your Procedure
Drawbacks of Zoom?
Zoom! Whitening uses an artificial UV lamp, similar to what is used in tanning beds, which can cause a sunburn on any unprotected skin or those with sensitive skin. Patients using products with Retin-A or blood pressure medication are at greater risk for a sunburn since these products make the skin more sensitive to UV light. Zoom! also causes greater tooth sensitivity after the treatment since the bleaching agent is left on for a longer time.
For the first 48 hours after the procedure, the enamel’s pores are open, which means they can absorb stains faster. Patients will be given a comprehensive list of dietary restrictions to follow for the first 48 hours. If a patient happens to eat or drink something from the list, they should brush or rinse their teeth immediately to prevent any staining.
Zoom or Laser?
At Dallas Laser Dentistry, most of our patients prefer laser tooth whitening since it takes less time, leaves patients with less tooth sensitivity after the procedure, it’s safer since there’s less contact with the bleaching agent and the laser lamp will not cause a sunburn on exposed or sensitive skin.
