Teeth Whitening Rancho Bernardo

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening kit that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since this only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine. Reasons for teeth whitening:

Reasons for teeth whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of the outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

What does teeth whitening involve?

This usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic, trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solutions either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

Get the smile you want with Zoom!® teeth whitening

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment San Diego

Zoom!® teeth whitening is a popular and effective treatment for achieving a brighter and whiter smile. It offers several advantages over other whitening treatments and provides long-lasting results. Here’s a breakdown of the Zoom!® teeth whitening process and what to expect:

  • Consultation: Prior to treatment, you will have a consultation with your dentist to discuss your goals and determine if Zoom!® teeth whitening is suitable for you.
  • Cleaning: On the day of the treatment, a thorough cleaning (prophylaxis) will be performed to remove any debris and plaque from your teeth.
  • Preparing for treatment: Your dentist will provide special eyewear to protect your eyes and splash guards to protect your clothing from the whitening gel.
  • Application of whitening gel: The dentist will apply the Zoom!® whitening gel to your teeth. The gel contains a hydrogen peroxide component, which breaks down into oxygen bubbles that eliminate stains and discoloration.
  • Activation with light: A mercury metal halide light, equipped with an infrared filter to reduce heat and sensitivity, will be used to activate the gel and expedite the whitening process. The light can be positioned to treat all your teeth simultaneously.
  • Gel application and removal: The gel will be applied and left on your teeth for 15 minutes. Afterward, it will be removed, and your mouth will be rinsed. This process will be repeated two more times for a total of three gel applications.
  • Post-treatment care: After the treatment, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene practices to prolong the results. This includes daily flossing, using anti-sensitivity toothpaste, and occasional retreatment with Zoom!® Weekender.
