Zoom is one of the most advertised and well known teeth whitening treatments in the marketplace

When you visit our dental office for teeth whitening, you can be confident that your smile will be whitened by eight shades or more. However, we utilize a laser and do custom laser teeth whitening instead of Zoom. This is the most dependable way to improve the appearance of your smile without undergoing major dental work. In fact, we can complete this procedure on your lunch break so everyone has time for a whiter smile. If you try a solution at home, it could take weeks for the process to be complete, and your teeth still will not be as white.

How laser teeth whitening works

When you visit our cosmetic dentist office, we will meet with you and examine your teeth and gums to determine if they are healthy enough for a cosmetic treatment. If you have gum disease, cavities, or an infection, we want to treat this first so that you are in good oral health and to prevent you from experiencing any unnecessary sensitivity. Once cleared for the procedure, these are the steps that we will take:

  • Clean and polish your teeth to ensure that the whitening gel is being placed on clean teeth, rather than plaque buildup
  • Protect your lips with a special lip cream to avoid irritation
  • Place a retractor in your mouth to help pull back the lips and expose the teeth
  • Next, you will bite down and rest your tongue on a cup that was placed in your mouth with the retractor
  • We will use a shade guide so that you can determine how white you want your teeth to be
  • After taking a photo of your teeth, we will place gauze inside of your mouth and a bib around your face, while giving you protective eyewear to use. This step can take a few minutes to ensure that the only area exposed to the whitening solution is your teeth
  • Next, we will place a protective solution on your gums
  • Then the whitening gel is evenly brushed on

While a Zoom whitening dentist would shine an LED light (or a UV light with older Zoom systems) on all of your teeth and face at once from outside your mouth to activate the whitening solution, for laser whitening we activate the whitening gel tooth by tooth with the powerful laser inside your mouth. This usually takes about fifteen-minutes, and then we let the bleaching gel do its job. We then repeat the process of placing new gel and again activating it tooth by tooth with the laser. There is no such thing as a perfect smile or the right shade of white – only what you find attractive and beautiful. With that in mind, we do our best to ensure that the final shade of your teeth is one that you are pleased with – if not, we’ll do another session at no additional cost.

Once the process has been completed, remove the protective barrier then rinse your mouth. The entire procedure can be completed during your lunch break so that you can have a gorgeous smile right away – and we’re always open during the lunch hour!

Dallas Tooth Whitening

Both Zoom and laser whitening are better than whitening strips or over the counter treatments you can buy in the store.

At Dallas Laser Dentistry, we recommend whitening your teeth with our laser teeth whitening process because your teeth will become whiter faster than if you try a kit at home. We will also ensure that your teeth are healthy and prevent any unnecessary sensitivity. This is a significant benefit of whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dentist. If you whiten them at home, you risk overexposure to the whitening solution and your teeth becoming sensitive as a result. Simultaneously, most over the counter solutions like whitening strips, trays, or toothpastes will only remove the surface stains on your teeth. Most of the staining and yellow comes from under the enamel so you need a whitening solution that will penetrate it. As with Zoom, laser whitening solution penetrates the enamel and begins the process of oxidization so that the molecules inside of your teeth reflect less light and appear colorless. This is what produces dramatic results. Most people that whiten their teeth at home see improvements but not to the degree that makes a significant impact. This is mostly due to the quality of the solution that is used while in some cases, like with whitening toothpaste, it is also because the solution is not on the teeth long enough.

When you visit our dental office, we can review all of your options with you and create a treatment plan that will give you the brightest and most beautiful smile. We highly recommend that you try laser teeth whitening for the best possible results. If you have any remaining stains, we can discuss other cosmetic solutions for covering them like placing dental veneers for a more attractive smile. We also recommend that if you are planning on having other dental work performed like getting dental implants, crowns, or veneers, that you have your whitening procedure completed first since these restorations are bleach resistant. Timing is critical when planning a smile makeover so we will let you know if whitening should be part of this process. For more information or to schedule an appointment with our dental office, call 214-702-5708. We will be happy to answer any further questions that you may have.
