Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional Teeth Whitening
It doesn’t always take elaborate procedures and long, expensive treatments to get the beautiful smile you have been dreaming of. Tooth whitening is a quick, safe and inexpensive way to turn this dream into reality.
This simple treatment will improve and correct brown, yellow, age-related and mottled tooth staining and works on patients of all ages. Only severely stained teeth might have to be corrected with crowns or veneers. Teeth bleaching is a long-lasting solution to restore the brightness of your teeth, and it will transform dull-looking teeth into a radiant smile. It is an instant confidence booster!
How does professional tooth whitening work?
First, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, so we can create customized stints that will perfectly fit your teeth to achieve the best possible outcome. It only takes a day or two until your trays are ready.
Afterward, the teeth whitening process can finally begin. We will provide you with a special bleaching agent that will gradually brighten your teeth as you are wearing your stints. For best results, we recommend that you wear your trays every night for 3-4 hours for 1-2 weeks.
The teeth whitening process itself is unobtrusive and safe. Since the trays are clear and you only have to wear them for a few hours every night, they are almost invisible and easy to incorporate in your daily routine. Nobody will even notice that you are wearing them. The bleaching agent will then simply remove stains from your enamel without altering your tooth structure or existing dental work. As you advance in your whitening process, you will be able to see your teeth brighten up significantly with each new day. We will want to take before and after photos to document your teeth’s stunning transformation! Once you have achieved the desired brightness, only occasional treatments are necessary to maintain the white of your teeth.
Depending on your individual needs, we can either brighten up all of your teeth at once or just your upper teeth. Our dentists will give you detailed instructions and thoroughly explain the process to ensure that you will be satisfied with your bright, stunning smile.
Getting healthy-looking, white teeth couldn’t be easier. Just simply ask one of our dentists or staff at your next appointment or schedule a consultation today, so we can get you started!
Beware of over-the-counter products!
Drug store and pharmacy shelves are full of over-the-counter teeth bleaching agents. Since certain products can harm your gums and teeth, we advise that you consult our office for recommended products and correct application.
See what our happy patients are saying:
I am very grateful to have the fine dental care by Dr. Stephen Ikemiya. He and his hygienist keep me feeling that my teeth are well cared for. As a senior citizen, 80, I appreciate this.
I so appreciate the service I receive when I go to Dr. Lehr's Office for my checkups. I think the practice as a whole is much improved by technology and process improvements.
It's so nice to be back in Carmel Valley after a five year absence and back to MPDG and the excellent care of Dr. Falkel. It is always a professional, caring experience.
