"Everything went as planned. Started promptly. Procedures were explained as they were implemented."- D.M. / Demandforce / Nov 10, 2015
"Let me start by saying that I typically hate going to the dentist. But I love this place! Dr Reifer is amazing! She is super nice and funny and will put you at ease. I've had a few dental emergencies and they have been able to squeeze me in at the last minute. All of the staff are incredibly nice and helpful. I also decided to get my teeth whitened using the method of building a mold of my teeth so I can do it at home. I've already seen great results. Do yourself a favor and switch to this dentist (specifically if you can see Dr Reifer) ASAP!"- C.S. / Yelp / Mar 15, 2020
"I grew up despising the dentist, but in the past year I've been seeing Dr. Reifer I've had a complete perspective shift. I highly recommend whether for routine dental hygiene or if you have extensive needs. Even the doctors she refers out to are great!"- K.C. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020

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.
