At Los Gatos Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a bright, beautiful smile. Professional teeth whitening performed by our Dentist in Los Gatos is one of the easiest and safest ways to improve your overall appearance and create a memorable impression.
Why Should I Whiten My Teeth?
Teeth can become stained or discolored over time due to age, medications, certain foods and beverages, or tobacco use. Teeth whitening can quickly reverse the effect of aging and restore stained, dull or discolored teeth so you can smile with confidence and take years off your smile. While professional dental cleanings and daily brushing can remove most surface stains, teeth whitening solutions penetrate beyond the surface into the microscopic pores of the teeth to break down stubborn stains while leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
Teeth Whitening Options
Los Gatos Family Dentistry offers several teeth whitening options. Our in-office teeth whitening procedure is performed in a single, one-hour visit by our trained staff. We also offer a take-home whitening kit that you may use in the comfort of your own home. The kit consists of whitening gel, which placed inside custom fitted trays and worn for 30 minutes daily over a period of 10-14 days until you have achieved your desired shade. Occasional touch ups, along with daily home care and routine dental cleanings, will maintain your bright smile and keep your teeth healthy for years to come.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Research and clinical studies show that teeth whitening performed under a dentist’s supervision is safe. It is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or nursing women. Some patients may experience a slight tingling or sensitively a few days after treatment, which will subside. Please be aware that teeth whitening cannot change the shade of existing crowns, veneers, or fillings. It is recommended that a dental cleaning be done prior to any teeth whitening for the best results.
