At Fallbrook Dental Care, we understand the importance of a bright, radiant smile. That's why we offer professional teeth whitening as one of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments. Whether your teeth have become discolored due to aging, smoking, or consuming dark-colored foods and beverages, our teeth whitening services can help you achieve a smile that's up to 10 shades whiter!
Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
The effectiveness of teeth whitening varies depending on factors like the natural shade of your teeth and the level of staining. It's important to note that teeth whitening is not effective on dental restorations, porcelain, or tooth-colored fillings. Additionally, if your teeth have yellow tones, the results of the whitening treatment may not be as noticeable.
Types of Teeth Whitening Options:
In-Office Teeth Whitening: Our in-office teeth whitening procedures provide quick and dramatic results. A professional-grade whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and then a special light is used to activate the bleaching agent. This process is repeated for 1 to 2 hours, depending on your teeth's specific needs.
Over-The-Counter Commercial Whitening Products: You can also find over-the-counter whitening products, such as mouth trays, strips, or liquids, at retail stores and pharmacies. However, it's essential to know that professional teeth whitening conducted at our dental office is more effective and longer-lasting than these store-bought options.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening:
- Reverses stains caused by aging, smoking, and dark-colored foods and drinks.
- Provides a relatively quick and cost-effective solution for enhancing your smile.
- Results can last for several months, making your teeth brighter and whiter.
- Professional teeth whitening can even tackle the toughest stains.
Safety and Effectiveness of Teeth Whitening
Your safety is our priority, and all our whitening products are approved by the American Dental Association. Our dental anesthesiologist ensures that all procedures and products meet the highest safety standards.
While teeth whitening is generally safe, it may not be suitable for everyone. If you have cavities, gum disease, or exposed roots, teeth whitening could lead to sensitivity. Pregnant or nursing individuals are also not recommended for teeth whitening. Additionally, if you have white fillings, crowns, or veneers, they won't respond to the whitening treatment.
