One of the most common cosmetic concerns patients have about their smile is yellowing or stained teeth. Whether it’s due to a daily coffee habit or medication, most people deal with stains on their teeth at some point in their lives. Teeth whitening is a simple dental treatment that can make a dramatic difference in your appearance. We offer both in-office bleaching and at-home bleaching at Oakland Dental Care.
In-Office Teeth Bleaching
In-office teeth whitening treatments are completed in a single visit to our office. We use a protective gel or rubber barrier to shield your gums and soft tissue from damage, then a carbamide peroxide whitening agent is applied to your teeth. A specialized light activates the bleaching treatment to enhance its results.
At-Home Teeth Bleaching
Our at-home teeth bleaching kits allow you to achieve a whiter smile than the treatments you can purchase online and in stores. You’ll come to our office where we’ll take impressions of your teeth, which we use to create a customized mouth guard. This mouth guard is used to hold a carbide peroxide whitening gel against your teeth for optimal results. We’ll show you how to use your whitening gel and provide instructions as to when and how long you should wear your mouth guards.
Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
What is the best whitener for your teeth?
For the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time, choose in-office whitening treatments. Professional bleaching is safe, effective, and fast.
How do I get my yellow teeth white again?
Most patients can achieve a whiter smile with in-office or at-home teeth whitening treatments, but there are times when a different approach might be needed. Some stains are intrinsic, which means they come from inside your tooth. This type of stain must also be addressed internally. Yellowing can also be caused by thinning enamel, which can be remedied with dental bonding or veneers. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll examine your teeth and determine the best way to whiten your smile.
How can I get white teeth in one day?
The only way to get a noticeably whiter smile in a single day is with professional in-office teeth whitening treatments. They’re ideal if you’d like a brighter smile for a special occasion and don’t have time for at-home treatments.
What are the side effects of teeth whitening?
The most common side effect of teeth whitening is temporary tooth sensitivity. If you’ve experienced tooth sensitivity in the past, let us know before your whitening treatment. We can make adjustments to your treatment by prescribing a special toothpaste that works wonders in reducing any post-whitening discomfort.
How many teeth whitening sessions do you need?
Most patients only need a single in-office teeth whitening session to achieve their desired results.
