Teeth Whitening in Dallas, TX

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, you are not alone. In fact, research shows that more than 50% of Americans are unhappy with their smile. However, teeth whitening at Luminescence Dentistry in Dallas, TX, can help.
Professional teeth whitening has been proven to be safer and more effective than OTC methods. Results also last longer, with proper care. Below, we’ll explore some of the reasons you should consider teeth whitening, the benefits of professional teeth whitening, and take a closer look at how the procedure works. We will also go over some of the most common questions the team is asked about teeth whitening.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening offers several benefits, including:

Results are guaranteed

Chances are, you’ve tried OTC teeth whitening products and been disappointed in your results. However, professional whitening is fast and reliable. In addition, Dr. Gaurav Tyagi will provide you with some tips on how to make your results last as long as possible.

Treatment is safe and comfortable

Some of the OTC whitening products can cause damage to your gums and increase tooth sensitivity. However, at Luminescence Dentistry, we never use harmful products on patients’ teeth. During treatment, we will monitor your progress and adjust the concentration of the gel to keep you safe and comfortable.

Improves oral health

There’s much more to oral health than brushing and flossing your teeth. You should also have a dental checkup and cleaning every 6 months. Poor oral health can lead to a variety of issues, including mouth ulcers and possibly organ failure. Professional whitening removes all stains from teeth, leaving them healthy and strong.

Boosts self-esteem

Your smile is one of the first things people see and if you’re unhappy about the appearance of your teeth, you may not be willing to smile. Professional teeth whitening gives you a bright, white smile. This will improve your self-confidence and make it easier for you to meet new people.

Treatment is Customizable

Another one of the major issues with OTC whitening treatments is that they are sold as “one-size-fits-all”. However, everyone is different and therefore, not everyone will have the same results. Professional teeth whitening treatments are personalized and customizable. The dentist will start with creating a custom-fit tray, which fits your teeth perfectly and protects your gums and lips from the gel. Additionally, the dental team can help you achieve the shade you want.

Treatment is affordable

At Luminescence Dentistry, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Unfortunately, most of these are not covered by dental insurance, so many patients can’t afford them. However, whitening procedures are a budget-friendly way to change your entire life.

Improves mental health

When you’re worried about your physical appearance, you’re at an increased risk of developing mental health issues. However, when your teeth look good, you feel good about yourself. This will trickle into the other areas of your life as well.

Why You Need Teeth Whitening

There are several reasons why patients at Luminescence Dentistry in Dallas seek teeth whitening, including:
●     A desire to look and feel younger and more attractive
●     Wedding or another important event
●     Fighting the effects of aging
●     Reversing blemishes due to trauma
The list can go on and on- but each and every one of these reasons can be traced back to a single purpose: to get the smile you’ve always desired.

We Offer Both In-House and Take-Home Whitening Options

At Luminescence Dentistry, we offer both in-house whitening treatments and kits that you can take home. Professional take-home kits are much better than the OTC kits you’d find at your local drugstore.
Our take-home kits are customized to fit your needs and goals. This allows you to do your whitening treatment in the comfort of your own home and still get professional results. We will provide you with specific instructions for using the kits and you should see results within a couple of weeks. You may have short-term gum and/or tooth sensitivity, but if it continues, bring it to our attention.
On the other hand, in-office is best for patients who want the best results fast. Since you are being monitored, we can increase the strength of the whitening agent.

Teeth Whitening Procedure

On average, in-office procedures take 30 to 90 minutes. We will start by applying whitening gel to your custom trays which will then be placed on your teeth. Then, you will be placed under a UV light that will activate the gel and start dissolving stains.
At-home professional whitening kits have custom trays as well. You will start by applying the gel to the trays and then placing them on your teeth. On average, treatment takes about an hour every day for 2 weeks.


In order to maintain your results as long as possible, there are certain things you will need to do:
●     Practice proper oral hygiene with a whitening toothpaste
●     Avoid dark sauces
●     Avoid coffee, tea, wine, and dark sodas
●     Avoid dark chocolate
●     Avoid acidic foods
●     Use a straw to drink
●     Quit smoking
●     Consider touch-ups

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth and you have a special occasion, job interview, or just want to feel better about yourself, you should consider getting teeth whitening.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

No, teeth whitening should not hurt. You may feel some discomfort if the gel gets on your gums. If you do, let us know and we will resolve the problem.
