What Is Laser Teeth Whitening?
A simple tooth whitening procedure can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile and increase your self-confidence. It's normal for teeth to dull or yellow during the aging process, and some foods and beverages, as well as tobacco use, can stain and discolor the teeth over time. The Made Ya Smile Rayford team wants you to have a happy, bright smile you can feel confident about, and that's why we offer laser teeth whitening treatments from the comfort of our modern, Spring, TX practice. You can take years off your smile with our powerful Zoom! in-office whitening procedure in just one visit. Schedule a visit with our dentist to find out more about how to enhance the look of your smile with our professional teeth whitening solutions.

Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for Me?
With teeth whitening procedures, deep stains and discoloration are lifted from your tooth enamel to give you a brighter, younger-looking smile. Adults and teens with stained and discolored teeth may benefit from this fantastic procedure as a convenient, cosmetic choice, or teeth whitening may be part of a more comprehensive smile makeover plan. Our dentist can give you a customized consultation to help you decide if in-office professional teeth whitening is right for you and find out if your teeth are healthy enough for a whitening treatment. During this consultation, we will chat further with you about your unique smile goals.
As a convenient way to refresh your smile, Zoom! laser teeth whitening is a simple and easy procedure. Those who have crowns, veneers, fillings, or other restorations that are located in the front of the mouth may find that this is not the ideal treatment for them. Restorative material will not whiten as tooth enamel will. Previous dental work in the smile zone may require us to change or create new restorations to match your new shade if teeth whitening is part of a comprehensive smile makeover procedure.
Professional teeth whitening may be the right choice if you have stained or discolored teeth from:
- Staining foods and drinks
- Certain medications or an illness
- Overexposure to fluoride
- Using products containing tobacco
What Can I Expect With In-Office Teeth Whitening?
You'll receive your Zoom! professional laser teeth whitening in one of our comfortable treatment rooms from our professional, caring team. No local anesthetic is used for this procedure, but a mild sedation option is available for those with a sensitive gag reflex or a general fear of the dental environment. Since teeth whitening works best when done on professionally cleaned teeth, our team will begin by polishing surface debris away with a special paste, and then we will rinse and dry your teeth to ensure the whitening gel is applied evenly. At this point, we will place a barrier to protect your gums and soft tissues, and give you glasses to shield your eyes from the laser we use to whiten your teeth.
After preparing your mouth, a professional-grade whitening solution will be placed on your teeth and our advanced whitening laser will activate the solution. This process, which uses our powerful Zoom! laser, lets the whitening gel gently dissolve stains on your enamel. This process will be repeated 2 – 3 times in increments of 15 minutes in order to match your preferred shade. Once complete, we will rinse the gel away and remove the protective barrier. The professional teeth whitening procedure with the Zoom! in-office system can be completed within an hour.
How Can I Maintain My Teeth Whitening Results?
Once your in-office whitening treatment is complete, we will go over instructions for home care to help you maintain your result. You may experience tooth sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures for a few days following your teeth whitening, but we can give you some tips to reduce any discomfort that occurs. For at least two days following your professional whitening treatment, you should avoid consuming foods and beverages that might stain your teeth like tea, soda, red wine, and tobacco products. In addition, it's important to continue to brush and floss after eating, drinking, and tobacco use, as well as maintaining your regular preventive care appointments. Following the recommended care plan can help keep your smile bright. When you visit Made Ya Smile for your twice-yearly cleaning appointments, we will help preserve your shade by polishing away any new surface stains on your tooth enamel. You can also opt to have a take-home kit made to touch-up or refresh your whitening results whenever you feel the need to. Our team would be happy to provide more information on additional teeth whitening solutions, and we invite you to call us today to begin your whitening journey.
Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?
As a cosmetic treatment, professional teeth whitening is not typically covered by dental insurance plans. Before beginning your treatment, we will review the cost with you and try to help you find a convenient payment solution that fits your budget. Made Ya Smile Rayford accepts a variety of payment methods and partners with CareCredit®, which offers low-interest financing options.
