Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening Pasadena

Dramatically whiten your smile for a cleaner, younger look!

The Problem:

  • Dull colored or stained teeth

The Solution:

A great smile is one of the first things people notice about you. However, if you have ever worried about having dull, gray or yellowed teeth, you’re not alone. Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly discolor teeth. Some foods, such as berries and chocolate, can stain teeth. And the dulling effects of both aging and smoking are easy to see.

Fortunately, tooth whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile, often times in just one visit. The advantages are excellent:

  • Significant whitening results in just one visit
  • Long lasting
  • Low sensitivity
  • Proven safe

Comparison of Whitening Options

  Treatment Length Avg. Result
In Office Professional Whitening One hour/one visit Up to 8 shades
Professional Home trays 7 - 14 days 6 shades
Over the counter whitening strips/paint on gel 7 - 30 days 3 - 4 shades
Whitening Toothpaste 30 days + 1 - 2 shades

A shade is a color matching key used by dentists to determine the brightness of teeth. A 6-8 shade shift in whiteness is excellent and can be achieved with our professional techniques. Please join us today for the whiter, brighter smile you have always wanted!

Advantages:

Modern tooth whitening systems are highly effective and have dramatic results. Many celebrities consistently whiten their teeth to improve their appearance.

Disadvantages:

Occasionally, patients may experience some gum or tooth sensitivity when using their trays. These symptoms subside when whitening is discontinued for several days.

Alternatives:

Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed, or at bedtime). A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just a few weeks.

Accelerated whitening is another option for some patients. This process can result in whiter, brighter teeth in just one office visit. Please consult with the doctor to see if this procedure may work for you.

Occasionally, teeth may be stained in a way that limits the effectiveness of tooth whitening. In those instances, porcelain veneers or crowns are an excellent alternative.
