"I like this place better compared to others in Taylor. I know is small and not luxurious but the coupons saved us money. You don't see or hear rivalry or gossiping within the assistants while you are waiting for your turn and your service. They treat each other politely so creates a relaxing atmosphere. The Dr is very meticulous analyzing x-rays and she explains everything to you in a gentle manner and does her best to be on time with you and spend the necessary time working in your mouth not in a rush but very professional no matter the schedule. We'll keep going there as long as they keep up with the good service."- N.T. / Yelp / May 23, 2019

Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for You?
In-office teeth whitening may be a great option for patients seeking to quickly brighten a dull or discolored smile. In fact, many patients also choose to whiten their teeth before weddings, graduations, job interviews, and similar life events. Before performing in-office teeth whitening, our dental experts will make sure your teeth are healthy enough for the process and discuss your concerns, goals, and treatment choices. Teeth whitening will not alter the shade of dental fillings, crowns, or other restorations. However, it may be ideal for brightening teeth that are stained, yellowed, or discolored from:
- Tobacco use
- Berries, tomatoes, or similar foods
- Coffee, red wine, tea, colas, or fruit juices
- Spices, like curry or chili powder
- Certain medications or health conditions
What Is the Treatment Process?
To begin the in-office whitening process, your teeth will be polished and dried so the whitening product can be evenly applied. A protective barrier will be placed over your gums and other soft tissues and your eyes will be shielded with special glasses. Our trained team will then paint a layer of professional-strength peroxide gel to your enamel and expose your teeth to an advanced LED whitening light. The combination of this gel and the light work to break down stains and discoloration on the teeth. Depending on your current enamel shade and desired result, this process may be repeated 2 – 3 more times. As soon as your teeth whitening procedure is finished, we will remove the gel and barriers and rinse your mouth.
Following Your Teeth Whitening Visit
You should be able to resume your regular routine following your in-office teeth whitening treatment. However, it is best to avoid products that may stain your teeth (such as lipstick, coffee, and tobacco products) for at least two days following your treatment. You may encounter sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures, but this should only last for a few days. To maintain your results, we recommend that you brush your teeth after consuming any products that may leave behind stains and keep up with good daily oral hygiene habits. Dental cleanings twice a year at ACE Dental can help polish away stains that accumulate on your enamel. A home-whitening kit may also be useful in allowing you to touch up your results every now and then to maintain a bright smile.
Is Teeth Whitening Covered by Insurance?
As a cosmetic dentistry procedure, in-office teeth whitening is typically not a covered benefit under most dental insurance policies. During your consultation, our team will discuss your payment options and help you select the solution best for your goals and budget. ACE Dental may be able to assist you in finding low-interest medical financing to make your procedure even more affordable.
