About In-Office Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth can become yellow, dull, or stained from a wide array of dietary habits and other life factors. A stained or dull smile often leaves many patients searching for a solution to whiten their teeth and bring confidence back to their smiles. In-office teeth whitening can diminish years of stains caused by tea, coffee, tobacco, and certain medications, among other causes. At ACE Dental of Belton, we offer Spa Dental Naturals teeth whitening that can lighten the color of tooth enamel by several shades within a single office visit. Contact our friendly team to learn whether this quick, convenient cosmetic dentistry option can help boost your confidence and brighten your smile!

Who Is a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening can quickly and effectively lighten the color of stained or dull tooth enamel. Many patients have their teeth whitened before major life events, like job interviews, graduations, reunions, and weddings. Prior to performing in-office teeth whitening at ACE Dental of Belton, our general dentists must ensure your teeth are healthy enough for this procedure. While teeth whitening will not change the color of restorations like crowns or fillings, it is often effective at whitening teeth affected by:

  • Tobacco use
  • The aging process
  • Tea, coffee, colas, red wine, and fruit juices
  • Tomatoes, berries, and similar foods
  • Chili powder and other pigmented spices
  • Certain health conditions and medications

What Is the Treatment Process?

We will first polish and dry your teeth so that we can evenly apply the teeth whitening solution. You'll wear special glasses to shield your eyes, and we'll place a protective barrier over your gums to prevent the gel from touching your soft tissues. Then, we'll apply a professional-grade peroxide solution to your teeth and activate it with an LED whitening light. Together, the powerful gel and LED light break down and dissolve stains within the tooth enamel. After about 15 minutes, we'll remove and reapply the gel. We'll repeat this process 2 – 3 times, depending on your starting enamel color and desired results. Upon completion, we'll remove the gel and protective barriers and will rinse your mouth.

After In-Office Teeth Whitening

Following your in-office teeth whitening treatment, you'll be free to resume your normal routine. However, we recommend that you avoid foods, beverages, and other items that can stain your teeth (like tobacco, tea, and lipstick) for a minimum of two days following your visit. Some patients experience minor sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, but this generally subsides after a couple of days. Keeping up with daily hygiene by brushing and flossing after consuming products that tend to stain can help maintain your whitening results. Routine dental cleanings at ACE Dental of Belton allow our team to polish off surface stains that build up on your enamel between visits. You may also consider using a take-home whitening kit every so often to help keep your smile looking bright.

Will Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?

In-office teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry service, so it's generally not covered by dental insurance. Nonetheless, ACE Dental of Belton is dedicated to offering affordable solutions to enhance the smiles of our patients. We can help you select the ideal treatment option and payment type for your goals and budget and can even assist you in applying for low-interest medical financing.
