What our patients say about us
  • I had a wonderful experience with Lone Oak. I have a LOT of anxiety about having my teeth worked on and the staff made me so comfortable. My previous dentist retired and I needed to find a new dentist. I knew I needed a crown but was very fearful of trying someone new. Dr. Jordan and his staff did an AMAZING job helping me to relax. I was especially impressed when Dr Jordan called to check on me after the procedure and gave me his cell phone number in case I needed anything. I couldn't be happier with my new dentist and would recommend Lone Oak with no hesitation.
  • The first time I went to them I felt very much at home. All of the staff acted very professional and courteous. I feel that my dental exam was very thorough and found problems that I was unaware of. The dental procedure was carried out efficiently, timely and with minimal discomfort. I'm very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend this practice to anyone. Their dental equipment seems very up-to-date and my dentist very knowledgeable.
  • The staff and Dr Brad were very pleasant and saw to it that I was very comfortable and the procedure was painless. Dr Brad very trustworthy he did just what he said he was doing and he quote the exact amount before he did the procedure. I would recommend Dr Brad and his staff.

Teeth Whitening

Stained, discolored, or yellow teeth are unattractive and can make it embarrassing for you to smile. Let Dr. Jordan at Lone Oak Dental whiten your smile to the brightest it has ever been! Bleaching or whitening is one of the most cost-effective ways to create a more pleasing smile. It is a relatively quick, non-invasive way to better your appearance.

Why Your Teeth Discolor

Think of your teeth like a white t-shirt. If you spill highly pigmented foods or drinks on your shirt, it will result in a stain that’s difficult to remove. Some foods and drinks that stain teeth are coffee, tea, soda, and wine. Teeth are porous, and these pigments can enter your tooth, leading to stains that are not removable by brushing and dental cleanings. In addition, these foods can lead to staining around white fillings. Carbamide peroxide used in our professional whitening treatment is a safe chemical typically used to whiten teeth as it breaks down the stains that build-up inside.

Before starting the whitening process, you should have an examination and any appropriate x-rays taken. Some areas that appear to be stained may actually be cavities or cracks in a tooth that may require treatment other than bleaching. However, if there are small cavities and they are not sensitive, whitening can be done with minimal concern.

How Teeth Whitening Works

Whitening is most effective after you have had your teeth cleaned, so we would recommend that you plan to have the whitening treatment performed within a month of your cleaning. The whitening process starts by taking molds of your teeth to create custom trays. At Lone Oak Dental, we can make whitening trays in our office typically within one week so you can quickly get started with this confidence-boosting process. These custom trays hold the bleaching material close to the teeth, providing the best results. Depending on what color your teeth are to start and what your goals are, whitening may take from 2 weeks to 6 months to achieve the desired effect.

One of the convenient, easy aspects of whitening is that it is very effective when done while you are sleeping. The trays and whitening material are worn for 6-8 hours at night, creating a beautiful smile while you sleep! Most people find that after about one month, their teeth have lightened significantly and they are happy with the result. To maintain that beautiful snow-white smile, whitening should be done one to two nights per month. 

Whitening is very beneficial before dental procedures such as veneers and cosmetic dentistry. When veneers and crowns are done, we often try to match the color of the final product to the current color of your natural teeth. If you have recently bleached your teeth, the resulting crowns or veneers will be whiter, giving you that Hollywood smile!
