How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

The teeth whitening options we offer involve using professional strength whitening gels and tools, like our custom-fit trays, to lighten the shade of your teeth. These whitening treatments effectively remove discoloration and staining, giving you a noticeably brighter smile. Sometimes known as teeth bleaching, our San Diego teeth whitening process prioritizes your comfort and safety, ensuring you can feel confident about your whitening sessions, whether in our office or at home.

What Leads to Tooth Discoloration?

As you age, you might look in the mirror and feel your smile doesn't wow like it once did. The natural brilliance of teeth can diminish over time due to various lifestyle and health factors. Understanding these causes is key to addressing and preventing further discoloration. Some common contributors to tooth staining include:

  • Regular consumption of dark-colored beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine.
  • Use of tobacco products, which can leave stubborn stains on teeth.
  • Eating heavily pigmented foods such as dark berries and tomato-based sauces.
  • Inconsistent oral hygiene practices that allow plaque and stains to build up.

We can better tailor our teeth whitening treatments to address your concerns by identifying these factors. You'll also be in the know and able to better protect against the factors that affect the shade of your teeth. It's important to note that some stains are unresponsive to most whitening options. Our team will talk to you about choices for more stubborn issues and cosmetic options such as veneers or porcelain crowns.

Effective In-Office Phillips Zoom Whitening

When you want results as quickly as possible, or you're preparing for a special occasion, our in-office Philips Zoom whitening treatment offers a rapid solution. This convenient procedure involves carefully applying a professional-grade whitening gel to your teeth, followed by activating the gel with a special light.

This method can lighten your teeth by several shades in just one visit, providing instant, evenly distributed results. Our skilled dental team takes every precaution to protect your gums and minimize sensitivity, and we'll always take the time to understand your past experiences with whitening. This understanding will allow us to account for any issues you've had with sensitivity.

Tailored Take-Home Whitening Kits for Your Convenience

We offer personalized take-home whitening kits for those who prefer the flexibility of whitening their teeth at their own pace. These kits come with custom-fitted trays and various gel strengths, allowing us to cater to your individual sensitivity levels and whitening goals.

Our detailed instructions ensure that you use the gel safely and effectively, achieving professional-grade results from the comfort of your home. Whether used as a standalone treatment or to maintain the brightness achieved from in-office whitening, our take-home kits are a convenient and effective way to keep your smile shining. As with in-office treatments, we'll work to accommodate your comfort, providing teeth whitening options that work for your unique smile.

3 Tips for Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results

Once you've achieved that perfect shade of white, the focus becomes maintaining your desired results. There are many ways to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. If you struggle to keep your smile shining like you want, we are always available to discuss other cosmetic options, like stain-resistant porcelain veneers. Here are three ways to keep your smile sparkling:

  1. Include crunchy fruits and vegetables in your diet to naturally clean your teeth and stimulate saliva production. Using a straw for darker beverages can also help minimize direct contact with your teeth.
  2. Consider quitting smoking, as tobacco can quickly dull the brightness of your teeth.
  3. Adhere to a rigorous oral hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing.

San Diego Teeth Whitening FAQs

We believe in transparent communication and giving you the knowledge you need to make confident choices about teeth whitening. We're always here to answer your questions and take the time to talk to you about concerns you have. Below are some of the most common questions we encounter:

How long will my teeth stay white after treatment?

The effects of teeth whitening generally last from several months to a few years. Adhering to good oral hygiene and avoiding staining substances can significantly prolong the effects.

Typically, teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, we strive to offer affordable options to make teeth whitening accessible to everyone.

We use the latest teeth whitening technologies, like Philips Zoom, designed to maximize your comfort. While some patients might experience temporary sensitivity, this is usually mild and short-lived.
