Professional Teeth Whitening in Forney, TX
You don’t have to settle for a dull smile. Get dazzling pearly whites with one of our teeth whitening treatments!
LM Family Dentistry offers two different professional teeth whitening services (one we can take care of in our office and the other you can use at home). No matter which you choose, you’ll see dramatic results that are sure to give you a newfound confidence in your smile.
GLO Whitening is an advanced take-home teeth whitening solution that uses both gel and a gentle LED light to create long-lasting results. You’ll apply the gel to your teeth and then put in the one-size-fits-all mouthpiece, which activates the gel with its LED light.
You can think of Opalescence Go as the professional-level version of those drugstore whitening kits. These prefilled trays are ready for you to use right out of the package so we don’t have to fuss with taking any impressions and you won’t have to wait for trays to be made for you from an offsite lab. All you have to do is wear the trays for the specified amount of time each day for 5 to 10 days to get your desired results.
Chairside Opalescence® Boost
Want to dramatically whiten your teeth in one go? We can brighten your teeth in a single visit with Opalescence Boost. The appointment only takes around 1 to 2 hours, so you’ll be able to walk out of our office that same day with radiant pearly whites.
Teeth Whitening FAQ
Simply changing the color of your teeth can make a world of difference for the attractiveness of your smile. If you’re still on the fence about whether to get teeth whitening, read through our frequently asked questions.
Are Teeth Whitening Treatments Safe?
Yes, teeth whitening is safe! Assuming you’re getting it done by a professional or with an approved product that is (beware unverified home remedies!). Some people experience tooth sensitivity after whitening treatment but the feeling should go away shortly. It’s best to see a dentist before beginning teeth whitening so they can make sure any other issues are addressed before you start.
Why Shouldn’t I Just Use Over-the-Counter Whitening?
There’s a lot to be said for going with a professional rather than a generic, drugstore product when it comes to teeth whitening. For starters, a dentist will be there to customize your treatment to your needs so you can get the end result you want. They’ll also be there to minimize any potential tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. On top of all of that, the products used in dentist offices are stronger and more effective than what you’ll find on store shelves.
Which Teeth Whitening Method is Best for Me?
That depends on your schedule and your budget! If you can spare an hour or two, you can come in for our in-office treatment and leave with a whiter smile that same day. If you’d much rather whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home at times outside of our hours, then you can go the at-home route. Just let us know what your needs and goals are and we can make a recommendation.
Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?
Unfortunately not. Teeth just naturally get stained and discolored over time due to the foods and beverages they’re exposed to and natural aging. That being said, getting professional teeth whitening will give you longer-lasting results compared to what you get from over-the-counter products.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
In general, in-office treatment is a little more expensive than at-home treatment. On the whole, yes, professional teeth whitening is pricier than drugstore products, but with that price tag, you’re also getting the added benefits of personalization, safety, and longer-lasting results.
