Teeth Whitening in San Diego, CA

Teeth whitening is the quickest way to improve the appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence. Over time, your teeth house plaque, tartar, and other build-ups, which not only affect their appearance but also cause other problems like tooth decay and infection. Professional teeth whitening is one of the most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures that whitens your teeth and restores their natural color.

What Causes Teeth Staining?

  • Consumption of foods such as acidic fruits and vegetables makes your teeth discolored.
  • Staining of the teeth is also the result of excessive consumption of coffee, tea, wine, and other beverages.
  • Teeth staining happens because of chewing tobacco and smoking.
  • Some medications may also make your teeth look stained.
  • Discolored teeth may also be caused because of various diseases.
  • When you do not maintain proper oral hygiene, your teeth accumulate the build-up of unwanted substances, thus causing tooth discoloration.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

  • Professional teeth whitening is a quick and non-invasive procedure that makes your teeth look whiter and brighter than before.
  • Not only does this procedure help you in maintaining an aesthetically appealing smile, but it encourages good oral care.
  • It is a cost-effective procedure suitable for people of all ages.
  • Professional teeth whitening is a safe procedure to choose.

How is Teeth Whitening Performed?

The procedure is completed within one visit only. When you visit us for an appointment, we carry out your visual dental examination. We may record the existing color of your teeth to check the effects of the treatment.

We will cover your gums, mouth, and cheeks with a dental dam so that only your teeth are visible for the treatment. We will rinse your mouth and apply a hydrogen peroxide gel on the surface of your teeth. The concentration of the gel depends upon the severity of discoloration. In general, we take 25 percent of hydrogen peroxide for application.

We will keep the gel on your teeth for some time. If your teeth are highly discolored, we will rinse your mouth and reapply the gel. In some events, we also use a laser on your teeth to quicken and deepen the absorption of gel. After the final application of gel, we will rinse your mouth. Your teeth will become visibly whiter. Visit us for professional teeth whitening once every six months to maintain the effects of this treatment.

Besides this, we will also give you at-home teeth whitening trays that you may use timely to maintain your pearly white smile.
