At-Home Teeth Whitening Plano
Nothing freshens up your appearance like a whiter, brighter smile received from teeth whitening. The whitening toothpastes at the grocery store just can’t give you the whitest possible smile. In fact, they can actually wear enamel away from abrasiveness. Today’s at-home bleaching methods are safe for the teeth and surrounding soft tissues, and you can have overnight results!
Willow Bend Dental uses the latest technology from Zoom! NiteWhite (formerly Discus Dental called Nite White Excel 3). NiteWhite is a liquid gel that safely and effectively whitens your teeth while wearing customized bleaching trays for five days, for only 1-hour for a day. This whitening program is especially helpful for removing stains caused by food, coffee, wine, tobacco, aging, and other sources.

For sensitive teeth, we offer Zoom! Discuss Day White (formerly Day White Excel 3 from Discus Dental). Zoom! Discuss Day White is a low sensitivity daytime tooth whitener that is used for only thirty minutes twice a day. The delicious cool mint flavor comes in a 9.5% hydrogen peroxide concentration.

Why Should I Use Professional Teeth Whitening?
Are stains on your teeth making you conscious about your smile? Do you find yourself covering your mouth while talking or laughing because of yellow teeth?
While natural remedies may be useful for removing surface-level stains, they often fail to treat deeper stains. And if used incorrectly, they might even damage your teeth.
At Willow Dental Bend, we offer Professional Teeth Whitening treatment in Plano, TX. Our treatments can make your teeth several shades whiter. We can help you get back your beautiful smile!
Frequently Asked Questions
What type of tooth whitener is used with the LaserSmile™ teeth whitening system?
The LaserSmile teeth whitening system uses a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel, which boasts a 37% hydrogen peroxide concentration. In comparison, at home teeth whitening kits usually contain 3 to 10% hydrogen peroxide. This difference in peroxide concentration is why professional teeth whitening treatment can achieve whiter results more rapidly.
How long will it take to whiten my teeth?
The time it will take to whiten your teeth will depend on the treatment you choose. Most people only need their teeth bleached once, as Laser Teeth Whitening can whiten up to six shades in one session. Each teeth whitening session is broken down into four individual applications of the teeth whitener: two applications on the top teeth and two applications on the bottom teeth. The duration of the first application is 16 minutes and the second application is 8 minutes. This means that the total exposure of the patient’s teeth to the LaserSmile teeth whitening gel is a total of 24 minutes on the top teeth and 24 minutes on the bottom teeth, a total of 48 minutes. Pre- and post-treatment preparations and activities that surround the treatment usually cause the treatment to last about two hours.
How should I prepare for teeth whitening?
Make sure you brush and floss your teeth regularly during the days leading up to the appointment. Also, avoid doing any at-home treatment without your dentist’s consultation.
After the treatment, it’s common to feel some sensitivity. Switch to a sensitive toothpaste to manage any post-treatment discomfort.
