How Do You Take Your Teeth Whitening?
You want whiter teeth. I can help. I’m Dr. Brock Lynn, a cosmetic and restorative dentist in Dallas.
You should consider your schedule, budget, and lifestyle when deciding on any cosmetic dental procedure. Here’s a brief explanation of my office’s teeth whitening options.
Zoom! Whitening: If you need immediate results for a special event, like a wedding or reunion, or if your time is very limited, one-hour Zoom! Whitening may be your best option. Zoom! uses a light-activated gel to lift stains from deep within the pores of tooth enamel so that we can literally wash them away. In a single visit, this system can brighten teeth up to 8 shades.
Professional Home Whitening: If you prefer to whiten your teeth over a few weeks’ time, or you are concerned about tooth sensitivity, I may recommend a prescription-strength home whitening kit. With this system, I’ll fabricate custom-fitted trays to hold a strong bleaching gel against your teeth. Wear the trays as directed, for an hour or two each evening. After about 14 days of treatment, you’ll see results that rival the results of Zoom! Keep your trays to touch-up your teeth as needed, and call my office to order more gel if you run low.
Whitening Pen: For patients who aren’t seeking amazingly dramatic results from whitening, our inexpensive whitening pen offers a practical and effective option. Simply paint your teeth with the pen before you go to bed, and the bleaching action will occur while you sleep.
Porcelain Veneers: If your teeth are permanently stained, and no bleaching system has delivered the bright, white teeth you really want, we should discuss porcelain veneers. These handcrafted, thin shells of high-quality dental porcelain are permanent restorations that fit onto front teeth. They look completely natural, and they never stain. In addition to whitening, veneers can alter the shape, alignment, and overall appearance of teeth.
The best way to decide which teeth whitening solution is best for you is in a cosmetic consultation. Call my LBJ office at 972-934-1400 to schedule your visit.
