Teeth Whitening – Vintage Park, Dallas, TX

You Don’t Have To Live With Stained Teeth

Unfortunately, it’s very likely that just about everyone will have stains and discoloration on their teeth at some point. Even when you’re born with naturally white teeth, the enamel naturally becomes thinner with age, exposing the darker layer of tooth structure underneath. Fortunately, Dr. Castleberry has two highly effective options for teeth whitening in Vintage Park to help your smile look like new again. If you’d like a beautiful white smile, call us today to schedule an appointment. Getting rid of stains and discoloration is faster and easier than you might think!

What Causes Stains and Discoloration?

Along with the effects of age, which no one is immune from, there are many other reasons for stained or discolored teeth:

How Does Whitening Work?

A whitening treatment uses bleaching agents such as carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide that contain oxygen molecules to penetrate the enamel. When used in the right concentrations, these agents break up and removes both deeper stains and surface stains to whiten your teeth by up to 8 shades.

The FDA limits the strength of store-bought whitening treatments, so they won’t provide the same results as our professional options. We offer two choices, both of which are not only faster and more effective than over-the-counter options, but also minimize the temperature sensitivity that some people get from whitening.

With a Zoom! whitening treatment, you’ll come into our office and leave about 2 hours later with your final results. Here’s how it works:

Take-Home Whitening Kit

As a cosmetic dentist in Vintage Park, we know that some of our patients want an option that can be used at home. With our convenient whitening kit, you’ll still get a smile up to 8 shades brighter, but it will be done more gradually. This option takes just 2 visits to get started and includes the following steps:

  1. We’ll start by taking impressions of your teeth to make custom whitening trays. These trays will fit your teeth perfectly so the whitening gel can reach the entire surface area of your teeth.
  2. It typically takes 1-2 weeks to make your trays. When you return to pick them up, we’ll give you a supply of whitening gel along with instructions for using them at home.
  3. You’ll wear the trays for 30-60 minutes a day until you get your final result, which usually takes 10-14 days.

With both options, we’ll also review the best way to maintain your results at home.
