Suppose you have a discolored smile and live in the area of McKinney, TX. In that case, the Thompson Dental team encourages you to consider the professional teeth whitening services available at Thompson Dental. With a proficient and experienced dental team, patients can achieve a whiter, brighter smile in as little as one day!

What types of teeth bleaching are available for patients at Thompson Dental?

  • Zoom teeth whitening – The Zoom teeth whitening system is an in-office whitening treatment performed by our trained and experienced dental staff. This method utilizes a light-activated bleach that can pull stains deep within the tooth enamel for dramatic results. In less than two hours in the dental chair, patients can leave the office with a whiter, brighter smile!
  • At-home teeth whitening – another option for our patients to consider is the at-home teeth whitening kits, including custom-designed trays that fit perfectly along the patient’s dental arch. A professional-strength whitening gel is placed into the trays and worn for a specific period each day. Some patients use this treatment alone to brighten the smile over several weeks or utilize the at-home trays after their Zoom teeth whitening to maintain the results over time.

Which one is right for me?

Choosing a professional whitening treatment is a decision that patients should make while considering their needs, desires, and lifestyles. As with many dental treatments available at Thompson Dental, there is no “one size fits all” solution. Consulting with a team of professionals is the best way to determine the whitening type you should use to improve your smile.

Who is a candidate for teeth whitening?

Most patients are appropriate candidates for professional teeth whitening, except those with restorations such as dentures, bridges, crowns, or veneers. Whitening products do not impact these restorations, so they may appear dark and discolored once the smile has improved with a whitening solution.
