Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
There are two choices when it comes to whitening your teeth:
This is a very safe way to Whiten your teeth in 1-2 hrs in a controlled In-office setting. We use a White Light Crystal with NO UV Exposure to activate a revolutionary gel to whiten your teeth 2-3 shades lighter. The whole process takes 1-2 hours depending on the existing color of the patient’s teeth.
The patient will get a Home Kit at no extra charge for future in-home maintenance.
In only a day or two, your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, almost invisible splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.
- Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages.
- It is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method of teeth whitening in Plano TX for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is it done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
The procedure itself should not cause any discomfort and is relatively easy to complete. Before getting started, we simply recommend that patients schedule a dental exam with our Plano dental office. Priya Mainker, DMD will then examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they are healthy enough for our teeth whitening in Plano TX. This way if any cavities or infections exist they can be treated first. To learn more or to get started, call (214) 618-6250 and schedule your appointment.
