FAQs About Professional Teeth Whitening


Do you want brighter teeth? Well, you’re not alone. In the United States alone, people spend over 1.4 billion dollars on over-the-counter teeth whitening systems each year. In order to remove stains and enhance the appearance of your smile, we offer professional teeth whitening services. Your Garland TX dentist, Dr. Vi Mai, provides both at-home and in-office teeth whitening techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening in Garland

Question: Can Dr. Mai really brighten smiles in less than an hour?

Answer: Yes. With Zoom Whitening!, patients obtain smiles up to eight shades whiter in about 45 minutes. First, a protective covering will be placed over the gums and lips. Then, a powerful bleaching gel will be applied to the teeth. Using a special light, your Garland TX dentist activates the bleaching ingredients, removing unsightly discoloration.

Question: Does my Garland TX dentist offer at-home teeth whitening?

Answer: Yes. With Day White, patients will receive a custom-made set of whitening trays and a special bleaching solution. Each day, the patient wears the gel-filled tray between 15 and 30 minutes. After about a week, you will notice dramatic results.

Question: What causes my teeth to become stained?

Answer: A variety of factors can lead to embarrassing discoloration. Smoking and tobacco use can leave yellow stains on your teeth. Drinks containing sugar and dark pigments, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soda, can stain teeth. Finally, foods high in sugar and other starches increase the risk of plaque buildup, which also boosts the chances of developing dental discoloration.

Question: How do I keep my smile brighter, longer?

Answer: In addition to cutting back on the consumption of foods and drinks that stain your teeth, you should always maintain good oral hygiene. Taking care of your teeth reduces the risk of teeth stains. Always undergo a thorough cleaning with Dr. Mai twice a year and practice good homecare, including brushing and flossing.
