Whether you have a class reunion on the calendar, a wedding, or even a special vacation planned, you might be thinking about how your teeth look when you smile.
Perhaps you have noticed in the mirror or in photographs that your teeth do not look quite as bright as they used to. This, unfortunately, is a part of aging and comes from the foods and beverages we consume over time. For those people who drink coffee or use tobacco, staining can occur even faster, making it difficult to maintain a white, healthy-looking smile.
At Brite Dental, we offer two options to our patients who wish to restore their white smiles.
Professional Take-Home Whitening System
Over-the-counter teeth bleaching options may only partially whiten the stains on your teeth. Strips, gels, and pastes can make some improvements, but are often difficult to use and provide only partial results.
Our custom teeth bleaching system includes customized whitening trays that fit your teeth precisely and hold your whitening gel in place, limiting ooze and waste.
We start by taking impressions of your teeth so that we can create your whitening trays. Once we make them, we will supply the type of whitening gel that works best for you. Choosing the correct whitening gel depends upon your level of staining and how sensitive your teeth are regularly. We will send you home with enough gel to get the job done! Your maximum results will be achieved in just about two weeks with regular home wear.
In our Campbell, CA dental office, we will take a before-and-after shade to measure your results.
You should retain your custom trays and can use them in the future.
Efficient In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you have a special occasion just around the corner, you may opt to get a jump start by choosing in-office teeth whitening. We will apply professional teeth whitening gel to the surface of your teeth and activate it with a special light. We can repeat the twenty-minute process several times, giving you dramatic results by the time your appointment is over.
We will send you home with custom take-home whitening trays to continue whitening your teeth and for future touch-ups if staining returns.
We will measure your results with a before-and-after shade. Your teeth will reach maximum brightness within a few at-home treatments following your in-office treatment.
Your teeth will never be too bright. Teeth bleaching only removes stains. It cannot whiten your teeth beyond what is natural for you.
