Your smile should reflect confidence, beauty, and health. For individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth, we offer a comprehensive range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including teeth whitening, at our North Dallas dental practice. These dental treatments can radically enhance the appearance of your teeth and bring your smile back to life.
Endless Benefits, Outstanding Results
With professional teeth whitening treatment, our team can dramatically whiten your smile - in many cases, by up to eight shades in as little as one hour.
Each in-office whitening treatment consists of three, fifteen-minute whitening sessions, during which the whitening gel is applied directly to the teeth. We utilize only the safest, most effective whitening systems for the benefit of our patients, including ZOOM® and Boost®. Both options can instantly transform your smile from ordinary and dull to positively radiant.
Dr. Khodabakhsh begins treatment by cleaning and drying the surface of teeth. Next, he administers the whitening agent in such a way that the peroxide components are isolated to the surface of the teeth.
Because he strategically places the whitening solution on the surface of the teeth, he minimizes gum irritation and maximizes whitening results. Tooth and gum sensitivity is often associated with teeth whitening because of the whitening agent's effectiveness at penetrating the enamel for long-lasting results.
Candidates for Whitening Treatment
If you are tired of having a dingy smile, you rarely smile because of the condition of your teeth, or your teeth are harshly stained, undergoing teeth whitening treatment at our North Dallas facility can take your smile to new heights.
Whitening treatments can also improve the color of your teeth if you frequently use tobacco products or take certain medications. To keep your smile looking healthy and white, we encourage you to refrain from using tobacco and drinking products that often cause stains.
Professional whitening is not recommended for women who are pregnant, patients who have receding gums or highly sensitive teeth or gums, or those with an allergy to hydrogen peroxide.
The Importance of Doctor Supervision
Dr. K offers professional at-home teeth whitening treatments to patients who would prefer to achieve a whiter smile in the convenience of their own home, on their own time. At our practice, we happily offer the Opalescence® tooth-whitening system, the leading take-home option on the market.
Before you begin the treatment, Dr. K must first take an impression of your smile and send it to an outside laboratory. Once your whitening tray has been crafted and returned to our facility, we will have you try it on to ensure it fits properly. We will then educate you on how best to achieve your desired results.
Once at home, you can whiten your teeth by simply dispensing the whitening agent into the base of the translucent aligner. Because the whitening tray is designed to form snugly to the contour of your smile, and because we train you on how to administer the whitening gel properly, you are at a lower risk for damaging your enamel and gums. This supervised approach is what differentiates professional at-home whitening treatment from over-the-counter whitening treatments.
Over-the-counter whitening treatments that are not performed under the supervision of a specialist can cause severe, irreversible damage to your gums and enamel. Because many take-home whitening systems don't use custom whitening trays to administer the peroxide evenly over the surface of the teeth, some regions of the mouth may become overexposed to the powerful chemicals, resulting in an uneven appearance.
