Get a whiter, more youthful smile with teeth whitening.
Recent advances in cosmetic dentistry have made it easier than ever before to safely whiten your teeth with professional results (up to 10 shades lighter!) in the comfort and privacy of your own home! Plano dentist Dr. Varun Joseph offers a predictable & affordable solution to the appearance of discolored and yellowing teeth. (aging?)
Professional versus Over-the-Counter Whitening
If you have tried different store-bought whiteners, you have probably been disappointed in the slight (if any) shade difference you achieved. For a quicker and more dramatic difference (experience, effect, the result?) a professionally made custom tray, made to hold our (the?) solution (whitening agent)? snugly against your teeth during activation (treatment?) is necessary. The most effective professional strength whitener is just not available in an otc product. Professional Cosmetic whitening procedures can whiten your teeth up to 10 shades! (redundant from above?)
Causes of tooth Discoloration
Some of the most common causes of dental discoloration include:
- Dark pigments in food and drinks are regularly consumed. (red wine, coffee, berries, etc.)
- Tobacco use
- Genetically darker enamel
- Tooth wear exposing the yellow under layers of teeth
- Certain medications during tooth development.
Local Plano cosmetic dentist Dr. Varun Joseph will evaluate your smile and create a whitening plan for your particular concern.

Veneers are an excellent option for resigning the appearance of your entire smile permanently! As well as color change, you can help design a change in the size and shape of your teeth.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening
The Opalescence teeth whitening system is available from the manufacturers of the innovative Opalescence! teeth whitening system. Opalescence kits include customized application trays and professional-grade gel. The Opalescence process is simple. You’ll place a small amount of whitening gel on your teeth using your custom application trays. For best results, you should leave the application tray in place for 30 minutes each day.
You should start to see improvement after the first few applications, and most patients see their desired result after 10 to 14 days of treatment. Opalescence is also a great way to touch up the results of in-office teeth whitening by taking a “whitening weekend.” If you had a professional whitening treatment in the past, and you’re starting to see some discoloration again, simply use your Opalescence kit for a few days. In most cases, two to three applications are adequate to help patients achieve their previous whitening results even a year or more after their initial whitening treatment.
Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results
After you achieve your desired teeth whitening results, your smile will not be brilliant white forever. The enamel is still susceptible to the same staining elements it always has been. Limiting your consumption of dark foods and drinks, foregoing tobacco use, brushing and flossing each day, and visiting us for professional teeth cleanings will extend the results for several months (or even years for some patients). When it’s time for a touchup, let us know. We can provide refill treatment, using your custom application trays and a new round of Opalescence gel.
