In response to the coronavirus, Governor Abbott has mandated that all dental practices close until at least April 22nd. This mandate includes all hospital and IV sedation appointments and may last longer than currently planned. We will be able to provide emergency services only during this time. Emergency services consist of extractions of teeth that are causing pain or infection, and limited treatment of dental trauma. If you would like to be included in our emergency clinic hours, please call Dr. Patrick's emergency phone number at 214-699-8456 and leave a voicemail. Dr. Patrick will then listen to the voicemail and call you back to schedule an appointment. Thank you for your cooperation during these extraordinary circumstances.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Professional teeth whitening services are performed and monitored by dental professionals, which means safe products and practices are always employed. When you choose a teeth whitening dentist that works with teens specifically, you can rest assured that your child is in good hands. The only side effect that may result from teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity, which usually subsides a few days after treatment. If you know your child has sensitive teeth, let us know before their treatment. We recommend patients try to avoid eating or drinking very hot or cold foods right after a teeth whitening appointment, as that can exacerbate tooth sensitivity.

Can routine cleanings whiten teeth?

Scheduling routine cleanings and exams for yourself and your family is very important for maintaining positive oral health, but they will not enhance the cosmetic appearance of your smile in any way. Only high-quality teeth whitening services will give your teen the whiter, brighter smile they have been dreaming of. Before a teeth whitening treatment can be scheduled, we will have to examine your child’s teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy enough to be whitened, as restorative treatments must be taken care of before any teeth whitening services can be performed.

Is teeth whitening covered by insurance?

Teeth whitening is not usually covered by dental insurance because it is considered a nonessential cosmetic treatment. However, we have found that professional teeth whitening can make an excellent gift for teens, so if your child has a birthday or a special event coming up, a teeth whitening treatment is a great investment to consider. We want to be able to offer our affordable teeth whitening services to anyone who wants a brighter smile, so if you have any further questions about financing a teeth whitening appointment for your teen, please visit our financial page or reach out to our friendly front office team and we will be happy to help.
