Tooth whitening is something we do every day at Brighton Dental San Diego, and it’s a great way to quickly and painlessly improve your smile. If you have healthy teeth with no gum disease, tooth whitening may be all you need to get your teeth looking younger and better than ever before. And if you need additional dental work, we provide a full range of cosmetic dental services.
Today, society demands white teeth from all us. From celebrities with ultra-white teeth to bosses, spouses and more who want us to look younger and more vibrant, everyone seems to expect us to have beautiful, glistening teeth – which really is possible for you. Plus, white teeth can give your self-esteem a boost, and that’s a great thing too.
Advantages Of Professional Teeth Whitening
While you can use over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and strips at home, the results are often very slight and quite unimpressive. Professional take-home kits are better, and in-office treatment is often better still. Among the many advantages of professional teeth whitening are these:
Consistent results. While OTC tooth whiteners work for some and not for others, professional tooth whitening is tailored to your needs and designed to work with your teeth. Under the supervision of Dr. Woods and our team, you’ll get the results you expect.
Quick and comfortable treatment. Professional tooth whitening is much faster than a do-it-yourself program that offers no supervision. And there’s no pain or discomfort or fiddling with bits and pieces of equipment that may not be doing you any good anyway.
Lasting results. The whitening programs we use here at Brighton Dental are designed with long-lasting results in mind. When you use a kit you buy at a drugstore or grocery store, you don’t know how long the results will last or when you’ll have to shell out for a new kit and start all over.
A safe solution. Under Dr. Woods’ supervision, you’ll never be treated with a whitening program that’s too strong for you or causes unnecessary sensitivity. And if something rare or unusual were to happen, you’re under the supervision of a dentist and we can take care of it for you. OTC whitening products leave you on your own.
Whitening Can Solve Many Problems
Whitening isn’t just for getting rid of coffee and tea or tobacco stains. It can be used for many other purposes, including:
• Fluorosis, spots on your teeth caused by excess fluoride during teeth development
• Yellowing caused by wear to the outer layer of teeth from acids or aging
• Brownish or yellowish staining from a variety of foods and beverages, including wine
• And many other kinds of discoloration of teeth.
If whitening can’t solve your problem, we’ll tell you which of our offerings can.
And treatment is simple. We offer in-office whitening and professional take-home trays for your convenience. In-office treatment can be completed in a single visit. For take-home treatment, we take impressions during one visit and then provide custom trays when you return for a second visit. The trays hold the whitener to your teeth better than strips or other over-the-counter solutions and fit better than OTC trays. In most cases, you will only need the whitening solution for a few minutes twice a day.
