Teeth Whitening services offered in West Des Moines, IA

Whiter, brighter teeth make your smile attractive and fill you with confidence. At Plaza Dental Group in West Des Moines, Iowa, the dental team offers three types of teeth whitening to get you the results you desire. Call the office today or use the online tool to book an appointment and find out more about their teeth whitening options.

Why should I consider teeth whitening?

Teeth that have dulled and discolored due to aging, smoking, or foods like red wine and coffee, benefit from professional teeth whitening. Over-the-counter whitening products, like toothpastes and strips, have very mild concentrations of whitening solutions and often result in a disappointing outcome.

Professional whitening uses high-quality and more concentrated solutions to get you a noticeable difference in the look of your smile. You’re also monitored by the professional team, so you’re less likely to experience tooth sensitivity or gum tissue damage from the whitening process. 

At Plaza Dental Group, the team offers in-office whitening and professional at-home whitening trays. 

What are my options for teeth whitening?

At Plaza Dental Group, you choose from three types of teeth whitening: KöR® Whitening, ZOOM!® Whitening, and basic whitening take-home trays.


The team provides ZOOM! Whitening as an in-office procedure. The process takes about 90 minutes, and you benefit from teeth that are several shades whiter. 

Your appointment begins with a consultation to make sure ZOOM! is right for you. Then, you come in for your treatment, during which a hygienist carefully covers the soft gum and inner cheek tissue to keep it safe from the whitening solution. They paint on the whitening gel and activate it by shining a special blue light onto your mouth. 

You’ll see your results immediately. 


At-home whitening trays

Plaza Dental Group also offers at-home whitening trays for patients who like the convenience of whitening on their own time. The results appear more gradually, too. 

Your dentist prepares custom-fit trays that match your smile exactly, so your teeth get an optimal coverage of whitening gel. You wear these trays for a specified amount of time every day for a few weeks. 

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

The dental team recommends teeth whitening for patients with realistic expectations for their results. Teeth whitening is not effective on restorations like crowns or veneers.

Patients with extreme tooth sensitivity or active gum disease may also want to avoid teeth whitening.
