Overview

Teeth whitening is an easy and convenient way to brighten the appearance of a dull or yellow smile. Over time and as we age, the enamel on our teeth may become stained or discolored by tea, coffee, wine, certain foods, and the use of tobacco. As a full-service dental practice, Made Ya Smile Dental in Sugar Land, TX is pleased to offer fast and efficient laser teeth whitening as a cosmetic solution to enhancing the appearance of your smile. Zoom! in-office whitening can brighten your teeth by several shades for a younger-looking, more vibrant smile within a single visit with our team. Learn more about how you can quickly refresh the cosmetic appeal of your smile with professional teeth whitening by scheduling an appointment with general dentists Dr. Joe Prasifka or Dr. Trey Nguyen today.

Best Candidates

Laser teeth whitening may be a great option for adults or teens who wish to brighten their smile for a whiter and more attractive appearance. Professional in-office whitening treatment lightens the shade of tooth enamel by gently dissolving yellow or deep stains on the teeth. This type of cosmetic dental procedure may be performed as a single treatment or completed within a smile makeover. Schedule a personalized consultation with Dr. Prasifka or Dr. Nguyen to learn more about our Zoom! in-office whitening and whether this option is ideal for helping you achieve your desired smile results. Laser teeth whitening may be a good choice to whiten teeth that are discolored or stained due to:

  • Aging or yellowed enamel
  • Coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Some foods and spices
  • Tobacco products
  • Certain medications or illnesses
  • Fluorosis of the teeth
  • Poor oral hygiene

For the best treatment outcomes, your mouth should be healthy and free of decay and gum infection. Our team will examine your mouth and talk with you to learn all about your cosmetic goals for your smile. If you have fillings, crowns, or veneers for your front teeth, please understand that these restorations will not change color during the whitening procedure. In some cases, such as with a smile makeover treatment plan, we will first whiten the teeth and then change any restorations that show in the smile to blend with the new brighter shade of enamel.

What to Expect

Zoom! in-office laser whitening is performed in one of our treatment rooms by our highly trained clinical team. The process generally takes about an hour and does not require the need for you to be numbed with a local anesthetic. However, if you tend to have a strong gag reflex, a mild sedation solution may be used. To ensure the best possible results, our team will begin by polishing your teeth to remove any plaque or surface debris. We will then rinse and dry your teeth and place a special protective barrier over your gums and soft tissues to prevent any of the whitening gel from coming into contact with these surfaces. You will also be provided with a special pair of glasses to wear to shield your eyes from our powerful laser. An even application of prescription-strength whitening gel will be placed on your teeth. To activate this solution and begin the process of lifting away stains, we will position our laser light in front of your mouth. After 15 minutes, we will remove and reapply the gel and reposition the light to continue the whitening procedure. In most cases, we repeat this process 2 – 3 times to achieve the best possible results. Your teeth will then be rinsed and dried and the protective barrier removed, completing your in-office teeth whitening treatment.

Recovery

Before you leave, we will provide follow-up instructions on how to help you maintain your whitening results at home. Some patients notice temperature sensitivity in their teeth for a couple of days after having their teeth whitening. Our team will give you tips on how to minimize any sensitivity and offer suggestions on what types of foods to avoid that could stain or diminish the results of your bright, new smile. We do recommend that you avoid consuming tea, coffee, soda, wine, and tobacco for the first two days after your teeth whitening procedure. It is best to brush and floss your teeth immediately after eating or drinking dark beverages or foods and maintain your routine cleaning visits with our team to keep your smile at its brightest. During your cleaning appointments at Made Ya Smile Dental, our team will polish off surface stains that may develop on your teeth. To help you maintain your white smile over time, you may wish to have a take-home whitening kit made so that you can touch up your smile when you see fit. Let us know if you are interested in learning more about home teeth whitening products.

Insurance Coverage

Dental insurance plans typically do not cover teeth whitening treatments since this is an elective and cosmetic option. Our team will let you know about your treatment costs and provide information on our convenient payment options. To help you get a smile you can be proud of, we can help you find a solution that meets both your budget and cosmetic goals. Made Ya Smile Dental also accepts third-party payments plans available through our financing partner, CareCredit®.
