About In-Office Teeth Whitening

Does the color of your teeth have you feeling dissatisfied with the look of your smile? Tooth enamel may become dull, stained, or yellow over time from a variety of factors. These may include age, tobacco products, dark-colored foods or beverages, and even some types of medications. To help brighten your teeth for a more confident, radiant appearance, we are thrilled to offer in-office teeth whitening at our Temple, TX practice. We utilize the Spa Dent Naturals system, which works through a quick, convenient process to whiten tooth enamel up to several shades within about an hour. If you wish to dissolve years of tooth stain, schedule a visit at ACE Dental of Temple to learn if in-office teeth whitening can revitalize the appearance of your smile!

Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?

You may be a good candidate for in-office teeth whitening if you are looking to whiten your teeth for a major life event, such as wedding or reunion, or simply to feel great about your smile each day. For teeth whitening to work best, your teeth and gums should be healthy and free from disease. Keep in mind, whitening solutions can lighten the color of natural teeth but will not change the shade of restorations, like crowns or fillings. In-office teeth whitening can be effective at lightening teeth that are discolored or stained from:

  • The natural aging process
  • Tea, coffee, red wine, fruit juices, or colas
  • Curry, paprika, or similar spices
  • Foods, like tomatoes and berries
  • Some medical conditions or medications

What Is the Treatment Process?

Before beginning in-office teeth whitening at ACE Dental of Temple, our team will polish your teeth so the whitening gel can be applied evenly. We will cover your gums with a protective barrier and provide you with special glasses to shield your eyes. A layer of prescription-strength peroxide whitening gel will then be placed on your teeth and exposed to an LED teeth whitening light for about 15 – 20 minutes. The light activates the gel, which then begins to dissolve stains within your teeth. We may repeat these sessions 2 – 3 more times, depending on your starting enamel color and desired outcome. When your procedure is complete, our team will remove the gel and gum barriers and rinse your mouth thoroughly.

Following Your Teeth Whitening Visit

Since in-office teeth whitening generally carries no downtime, you should be able to get back to your normal routine when you leave our office. You may wish to avoid lipstick, tea, and other products that may stain your teeth for a least a couple of days after your visit. Your teeth may feel sensitive to hot or cold temperatures, but this should resolve on its own in a few days. To help keep your smile bright, it is a good idea to brush your teeth after eating or drinking items that may stain and maintain good oral hygiene habits. During your cleanings at our Temple, TX practice, we will polish your enamel to help minimize stain that may accumulate between visits. A take-home whitening kit may also be used to touch up your results from time to time.

Will Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?

In-office teeth whitening is an aesthetic dentistry service that is not usually covered by dental insurance. However, we still want to help you get a smile that makes you feel confident. Before your visit, we will explain your treatment costs and help you choose among the affordable payment methods accepted at ACE Dental of Temple. A member of our team will also be glad to help you explore low-cost financing options.
