Teeth Whitening | Shifa Dental Does Teeth Whitening in Plano & Garland

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening enhances the whiteness and brightens your natural teeth. However, it isn’t for everyone. We always suggest speaking with your local Plano or Garland dentist at Shifa Dental before taking any whitening action on your teeth.

Three different options for teeth whitening at Shifa Dental

Your dentist at Shifa Dental clinics in both Plano and Garland will determine whether you’re a candidate for teeth whitening and help you explore your options.

Store-Bought Kits

Shifa Dental always recommends choosing a teeth whitening kit approved by the American Dental Association should you decide to whiten your teeth at home. Always follow the directions, and keep in mind that they require seven to 30 days of consistent use to see their full effects. Individual results vary with store-bought teeth whitening kits.


Dentist-supervised teeth whitening kits provide greater results than the aforementioned kits. Normally, there are two types of treatments available:

  • An in-office teeth whitening treatment that brightens your teeth five to ten shades within 45 minutes.
  • A dentist-dispensed teeth whitening kit that you can take home with you. These contain higher concentrations of whitening agents compared to store-bought kits, and they’re easy to use.
  • When it comes to teeth whitening in Plano or Garland, we’re always happy to advise and give you more information about your options.

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment

The most common cosmetic dental procedure today is professional, in-office teeth whitening. In contrast to home-use systems that use low-dose bleaching chemicals, in-office teeth whitening takes place under closely regulated settings, allowing for the safe, controlled, and pain-free application of a high fraction of bleaching gel – with rapid effects.

Teeth whitening in our Plano and Garland clinics offers the best results and is the safest method of bleaching. Thicker peroxide gels (that don't soak into the teeth as much as previous gels) and the use of desensitizers like potassium nitrate and fluoride have made gum and tooth sensitivity more manageable in recent years.

1Is teeth whitening safe? Any side effects?
While teeth whitening is generally regarded safe, you may suffer some tooth sensitivity as a result of the procedure. This could happen on your first or second treatment, and it will go away with time. Always read and carefully follow the instructions that come with your take-home kit or over-the-counter product.
2How long does teeth whitening last?
Depending on the type of teeth whitening and how well you maintain your teeth, whitening can last for anywhere from 4 months to up to 12 months.
3Is teeth whitening covered under insurance?
The cost of teeth whitening is rarely covered by insurance. Check with your insurance company to see if you're covered. Talk to our staff today to check if your insurance cover it or to get an exclusive teeth whitening deal.
4Does teeth whitening affect my existing filling or implants?
If you have crowns, veneers, or fillings on your front teeth, whitening will not change their colour. The crowns and fillings may stand out more if the surrounding teeth are whitened.
