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.

What to Expect

 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 the 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.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Benefit of Teeth Whitening?

One of the benefits of this method of teeth whitening, and one of the reasons we use it at our Plano practice, is the active ingredients: ACP, potassium nitrate, and fluoride. These elements are proven to reduce sensitivity and keep the teeth strong during the whitening process. Rather than break down the enamel, ACP actually provides added strength.

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.

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.

Future Stain Prevention?

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.
