Am I a candidate for professional teeth whitening?

When debating the advantages and disadvantages of professional vs. store-bought whitening solutions, you should consider what you are really attempting to achieve. If your smile has been white your entire life and just recently is starting to yellow, an over-the-counter product might produce temporary results. If your teeth have darker stains, you might be a perfect candidate to receive professional-strength, in-office teeth whitening at Parker West Dental Associates in Plano, TX. If you want home touch-ups, Dr. Nguyen may also offer at-home customized trays which are compatible with our whitening solutions for maintenance.

What should I expect from treatment?

Teeth whitening is available in two separate concentrations, which the dentist  or hygienist will recommend, based on the patient’s specific cosmetic goals. For optimal results, patients are expected to wear their mouth tray for 30 minutes per day. Doing so can dramatically brighten the teeth. Many patients experience brighter, whiter results within just 10 days. KoR-Day whitening trays are custom-fit for each patient, reducing the chances of irritation. The tray also protects the gums from exposure to the whitening gel and ensures that each tooth receives treatment, not just the front teeth. This is vital to providing all-over brightening and natural-looking results.

What happens after teeth whitening?

Following either session, you may experience some sensitivity to cold or hot food, but this typically dissipates within a couple days. Just like all dental procedures, routine dental exams by Dr. Nguyen are highly recommended and essential to preserving results. These examinations will check for everything from gum tissue health and the state of each tooth. When the main procedure is finished, we typically suggest coming back for touch-ups a few times annually, in addition to bi-annual cleanings that will benefit your oral wellbeing. Bear in mind that just because your teeth are white doesn't necessarily indicate that they're in perfect health. That is why regular examinations are important. You'll also be provided specific instructions regarding what food should and should not be consumed in the future, for example coffee and red wine.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The cost for teeth whitening will vary depending how much staining is present on the teeth, as well as the amount of whitening the patient desires. The average cost for this procedure runs between $250-$1,500.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Will my teeth be sensitive after teeth whitening?

It's common to experience some tooth sensitivity after a whitening treatment, but this is typically mild, temporary, and resolves quickly. This sensitivity is usually temporary and can be managed with desensitizing toothpaste or gels recommended by your dentist. At-home treatments typically result in less sensitivity, but it varies from person to person. It can also be helpful to refrain from eating and drinking cold, hot, or sugary items in the first few days after treatment.

Is at-home teeth whitening as good as in-office treatments?

At-home teeth whitening can provide satisfactory results for many people, but it may take longer to achieve the desired level of whiteness compared to in-office treatments. In-office procedures, like Zoom, often offer quicker and more dramatic results. Our knowledgeable dentists can guide you on which approach is best suited to your specific goals and dental condition.

Should I get KoR or Zoom! teeth whitening?

The choice between KoR and Zoom! teeth whitening depends on your individual needs, the nature and severity of your tooth discoloration, and your preferences. KoR is known for its effectiveness in treating stubborn stains, while Zoom! offers quick in-office results. Consult with your dentist to determine which option aligns better with your goals and dental condition.

What kinds of staining does KöR teeth whitening treat?

The KöR whitening system is effective at treating enamel discolored by dark geriatric staining of fluorosis. It begins with an in-office conditioning therapy of 13% hydremide peroxide gel, then 3 – 4 weeks of KöR-Night. Next, one in-office procedure with 34% hydremide peroxide gel is done. KöR ULTRA-T is one of the few remedies that may improve enamel stained by tetracycline.

How long until I reach my Optimal Results?

While whitening results vary, most patients can see their best results within a couple of weeks. Typically, patients with stains caused by antibiotics will not see completely white results.

Can I get teeth whitening with Previous Dental Work?

The bleach solution only works on a natural tooth, which means it will not whiten any previous dental work, such as crowns, caps, veneers, bridges, bonding, fillings, dentures, or cavities.

Does teeth whitening treatment prevent future staining?

A good oral hygiene regimen and regular visits to the dentist will keep your teeth bright and shiny. Patients who just had their teeth whitened should avoid staining foods, such as coffee, alcohol, and sugars. Patients should also avoid smoking.
