What Is Laser Teeth Whitening?

A fast, simple treatment, such as laser teeth whitening, can take away years from your teeth and give you a brighter, whiter, and more confident smile. At Made Ya Smile Dental, we understand that even the healthiest teeth can dull or yellow over time with aging, or with different types of foods, beverages, or tobacco products. Our general dentists offer the powerful and effective Zoom! in-office treatment at our location in The Woodlands, TX. Professional Zoom! treatments are known to lighten teeth by at least several shades in just one visit so there's no reason not to contact our office today to schedule a consultation near you. 

Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

In-office Zoom! treatments work by eliminating stains and discoloration on the enamel for a brighter, younger-looking smile. Laser teeth whitening is a great choice for teens or adults who have stained or dull teeth or as part of a more complete, comprehensive smile makeover. A consultation at our clinic with one of our doctors can help you learn if a Zoom! in-office treatment is the right choice for your teeth. You may not be an ideal candidate if you have restorations, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings, in the smile zone at the front of the mouth because your natural teeth will whiten, but the restorations will not. Patients must also have strong, healthy teeth with no signs of cavities or decay. Made Ya Smile Dental will work to address these issues first before we move forward with any cosmetic procedures. Professional Zoom! in-office whitening may be ideal if you have discolored teeth from:

  • Tea, coffee, wine, or certain foods
  • Tooth discoloration from illness, medications, or aging 
  • Smoking or use of other tobacco products 
  • Poor oral hygiene

What Can I Expect With In-Office Teeth Whitening?

Made Ya Smile Dental offers Zoom! laser teeth whitening at a warm, welcoming environment in one of our treatment rooms. If you are feeling anxious about the procedure, or if you have a strong gag reflex, we may provide a few mild sedation options. Laser teeth whitening works best on clean teeth so Made Ya Smile Dental will remove any debris and polish your teeth with a paste, then rinse and dry your teeth before applying the whitening gel. Our dentists will rinse and dry the teeth again to ensure an even application, then place a barrier to protect your soft tissues and give you special glasses to shield your eyes. 

Afterward, Made Ya Smile Dental will apply a professional-strength solution that will be activated by the state-of-the-art whitening laser. This will work to dissolve the stains on your teeth quickly and efficiently, depending on your starting shade or color. Typically, the process is repeated a few times during 15-minute increments. At the last stage of the process, we will thoroughly rinse the gel and remove the protective barriers. All of this can be completed at our practice in The Woodlands, TX in less than an hour. 

How Can I Maintain My Teeth Whitening Results?

Our helpful staff will go over some follow-up instructions so you can maintain your laser teeth whitening results for as long as possible. Patients normally notice some sensitivity in the teeth for a few days, especially when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. It's best to avoid staining foods or beverages, like tea, soda, wine, and tobacco products, for at least a couple of days to minimize the chances of discoloration. During your biannual cleaning appointments, Made Ya Smile Dental can polish your teeth and offer a take-home kit so you can touch up the enamel as needed in the comfort of your home.

Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?

Cosmetic treatments, such as Zoom! in-house whitening or laser treatments are not normally covered by dental insurance. However, the staff at Made Ya Smile Dental is ready to help make your whitening treatment more affordable by offering one of several different payment options to fit your budget. Teeth whitening is an essential part of having a brighter, more confident smile you want to show off. For this reason, we also have a third-party financing partner, CareCredit®, so you can make low-interest payments.
