Brighten your smile with Professional Teeth Whitening options
If you’ve ever scanned the oral care aisles at your local drugstore, you know how overwhelming it can be to choose a teeth whitening product. Strips, trays, and gels are readily available, but many patients find them to provide little, if any, results. Instead, Dr. David Frank of Walden Dental in Austin, Texas, encourages patients to ask about in-office teeth whitening solutions that provide same-day results or long-term enhancement. With the help of our team, patients have the opportunity to brighten their smiles on their terms, in the office, or at home.
What methods of teeth bleaching are available at Walden Dental?
Dr. David Frank is pleased to provide both in-office whitening and at-home dental whitening options.
- In-office whitening – in-office whitening is achieved with our Zoom! teeth whitening system. Patients come into the office and relax in the treatment chair as their teeth are cleaned and prepared. A special gel is applied to the gums, and a light-activated bleaching gel is applied to the teeth. Using a unique light-based system, the teeth are exposed to the light and brightened in less than an hour. The teeth are cleaned once more before patients leave, and they can enjoy same-day results.
- Take-home dental whitening – alternatively, patients who want more control and a gradual enhancement of the teeth, paired with an economical alternative, will want to ask about our take-home dental whitening treatments. With the use of customized trays and prescription-strength bleaching gels, patients can achieve the changes they want in the comfort of their own homes. Some patients will combine the take-home dental whitening package with the in-office Zoom! whitening to maintain longer results.
Whitening your smile | Walden Dental
Hey there! Let’s talk about whitening your smile. Many of our patients have tried a bunch of whitening products sold at the grocery and drug stores but are often underwhelmed with the results. Many patients find it take so much time and daily hassle of remembering to use those pesky strips that they give up altogether and settle for having stained and dull smiles. Even worse, those over-the-counter strips are impossible to use if your smile is anything less than perfectly straight, something hardly any of us have! With our in-office Zoom! Whitening, the patented light-activated gel enhances the brightness of your teeth with little to no sensitivity. Plus, many of the over-the-counter whitening options are abrasive and damage your enamel. I have some of the most sensitive teeth out there and I was able to have my teeth noticeably whitened with hardly any sensitivity compared to past attempts. Whitening is an amazing way to bring back a bright and youthful smile and get rid of those annoying stains that can come from some of our favorite foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, and tea.

Frequently Asked Questions
If your teeth are stained or discolored by tea, coffee, wine, tobacco, food dyes, or medication, but you are otherwise healthy, professional teeth whitening can help you. Discuss the procedure with your dentist.
The procedure was designed for the tooth enamel and is not effective on restorations like dentures, fillings, crowns, bonding, bridges, or veneers. This means you may have to replace any restorations to match the post-treatment color. Talk to your dentist before proceeding.
The results are not permanent and may depend on the care you take. If you expose your teeth to colored/dyed foods and beverages, the results may not last more than one month. If you avoid such items, your results may last one year or longer.
Professional teeth whitening offers the advantage of significantly reducing the risk of damage to the tooth, gums, etc. Dentists use products that are safer and of a higher standard, thus reducing any chances of tooth sensitivity or root damage.
The treatment may cause tooth sensitivity and slight discomfort in the gums during or after treatment. These are usually temporary and will disappear in a few days, but tell your dentist so they can advise you on any precautionary steps.
