Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening
How you look can have a tremendous effect on you at a social, emotional, and professional level. For instance, patients with a confident smile are viewed by others as warmer and more attractive. But suppose your teeth are stained. How can you turn your discolored smile around have that bright, confident look you’ve been dreaming of. The answer is simple—with teeth whitening.
Over time, you may notice your teeth have become yellow and have lost the youthful look you once had. Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration.
Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.

This is caused by staining from foods such as tea, coffee or soy that build up and settle into the deep layers of your teeth. One of the easiest ways of regaining your smile’s youthful appearance is through teeth whitening procedures. Nowadays, everyone can have a whiter, brighter smile.

Since we have whitened thousands of people’s teeth over the last decade, we have chosen and designed the best methods that are safe and effective for patients.
Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride-containing toothpaste, cleaning between their teeth once a day and the regular cleanings at your dentist’s office. If you decide you would like to go beyond this to make your smile look brighter, you should investigate all of your options.

All teeth whitening systems work by the use of a gel of hydrogen/ carbamide peroxide. Overall, it’s the gel that works by releasing oxygen into the teeth to whiten the teeth.

How Do Teeth Become Stained
Tooth stains are caused by the foods you eat, the beverages you drink, and other factors like tobacco use, aging, genetics, and even certain medications. Sometimes, brushing and flossing can help combat certain kinds of stains, but often these activities aren’t enough to really keep your smile looking white. But you don’t have to settle for discolored teeth. At our Rocklin, CA office, we offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening to help you transform your smile.

In-office whitening usually takes 30 to 90 minutes. You will need 1 to 3 appointments. The number will depend upon the method used, how severe your stains are and how white you want your teeth to be.
Different types of stains respond differently to the treatment.
First, dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums around the teeth. Then, the whitening agent will be placed on the teeth.
After the whitening agent is applied, the dentist will shine the light on your teeth. If they are badly discolored, your dentist may suggest that you continue the bleaching process at home for a few days or weeks.
