Nowadays, many people wish to have whiter teeth, and hence whitening treatments have become a widely preferred cosmetic option. Tooth whitening can whiten your pearly whites several shades lighter than their original color and keep you ready just before any momentous social occasion or engagement. At Capistrano Dentistry in California, we provide various tooth whitening treatments to boost the aesthetics of your smile.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a regular, non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure that can change the color of natural tooth enamel and augment the beauty of your smile. Bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide are generally used to whiten your teeth. The teeth whitening effects are not permanent, and the process may have to be repeated often to maintain the whitening results.
Reasons for Teeth Whitening
- Excessive fluoridation during tooth development
- Normal wear of the outer tooth layer due to vigorous brushing and aging.
- Stained teeth due to medications like tetracycline
- Yellow, brown stained teeth
- Tooth discoloration due to an injury.
- Cosmetic purposes
- Tooth stains due to smoking or chewing tobacco
Teeth Whitening at Capistrano Dentistry
A professional-strength bleaching solution used at our dental office can deliver a visible difference after just one application. Alternatively, you can acquire our at-home products that you can use in the comfort of your home. We provide custom-made bleaching trays to be used in combination with whitening gels. Regardless of the stubborn stains that have developed on your teeth over the years, you should be able to achieve the results that you always wanted.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This procedure uses a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide, and it works to remove all the stains off your teeth. In this method, we will first screen your teeth for infections and other problems. After screening, the gel is applied to the teeth and spread evenly. The solution is left on the teeth for half an hour and is later rinsed off.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
We also provide customized plastic trays to remove stains from your teeth. This system involves taking a mold of your teeth and using it to fabricate a customized plastic tray. You will have to wear this tray as prescribed, along with a whitening gel. The home whitening system can be more convenient for you though it may take longer to reflect the effects.
