Causes of Tooth Discoloration
You cannot avoid tooth discoloration because it is a natural part of the aging process. Over time, your enamel becomes thinner, which causes more of your yellowish dentin to be more visible. Besides age, there are other factors that cause stains, including:
- Poor oral hygiene habits
- Darkly pigmented foods and drinks
- Smoking and tobacco
- Certain medications
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments
At the first sign of discoloration, you have probably tried a few over-the-counter whitening products, like a toothpaste or a mouth rinse. Although you had high hopes to experience significant change, your teeth only became slightly brighter. This is because the products do not contain professional grade whitening agents, so they cannot deeply penetrate your enamel. The only way to achieve noticeable improvement is with the help of your cosmetic dentist in Frisco.
At Stonebriar Smile Design, we offer two whitening systems: GLO and Zoom! Both treatments can get your teeth as much as 8 to 10 shades brighter using a safe and effective whitening agent. We offer 2 convenient solutions to help you get the results you want.
After just one appointment, you can have a dazzling bright smile that lasts. A protective barrier is applied to your lips and cheeks to avoid causing any irritation to your soft tissues. The whitening agent is put on your teeth and a special light is used to activate the gel. It penetrates your enamel to resolve tough stains when used for three 15-minute intervals. The whitening gel is specially formulated to help you achieve maximum results while minimizing any tooth sensitivity.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you prefer to get a bright smile using the convenience of an over-the-counter product, you can with our at-home kit. We provide you with custom-made trays to ensure the even and consistent distribution of the whitening agent. We give you the professional-grade whitening gel to use at home for a weekend. As each day passes, you will see your smile become several shades whiter.
Enjoy a Lasting Smile
Your new smile can stay white with the right aftercare, such as:
- Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each session.
- Floss daily.
- Limit your contact with darkly pigmented foods and drinks.
- Do not smoke or use tobacco.
- Visit your dentist in Frisco twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Are you still curious as to whether professional teeth whitening in Frisco is right for you? Then you’ve come to the right place! Below, we’ve included the answers to some of the questions about teeth whitening that our team members get asked the most often. We hope that by reading through these FAQs, you’ll feel confident enough to reach out to us and schedule a consultation. If you can’t find the answer to your question on this page, feel free to call us and ask – we’re always happy to help!
Does teeth whitening hurt?
Unlike the teeth whitening products you can find at your local drugstore, our solutions are created with your comfort and safety in mind. In order to minimize the risk of gum irritation following your treatment, we isolate your teeth during in-office whitening and make customized trays for take-home whitening. We also formulate our bleaching agents to reduce tooth sensitivity as much as possible.
If your teeth are prone to sensitivity, we may recommend take-home whitening instead of in-office treatment, so as to avoid aggravating your teeth. We might also suggest using a desensitizing toothpaste for a few days after starting your treatment to reduce discomfort.
Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
Most patients who wish to have brighter smiles make good candidates for teeth whitening. However, you’ll need to visit us for a consultation first, just to make sure. If your cosmetic dentist in Frisco discovers any untreated oral health conditions, such as cavities or gum disease, then they must be addressed before we can focus on the aesthetics of your teeth.
Does teeth whitening work on dental crowns?
Dental crowns (and other restorations like veneers, bonding, and tooth-colored fillings) are not porous like tooth enamel is. While this makes them resistant to staining, it also means that whitening gel will not penetrate the surface. Therefore, teeth whitening does not work on dental crowns. In fact, the bleaching agent might even weaken the bond between your restoration and your natural tooth.
We typically don’t recommend that patients with dental crowns undergo teeth whitening, as their crowns will stand out. However, if you’re unhappy with the color of your crown, we can discuss replacing it after teeth whitening in order for it to match the rest of your smile.
Is teeth whitening covered by dental insurance?
Teeth whitening isn’t normally considered “medically necessary,” so it’s very unlikely to qualify for dental insurance coverage. That said, there may be some exceptions. Our team is happy to double-check the details of your plan to help you save as much money as possible. We can also help you apply for a low- to no-interest payment plan through CareCredit.
