Tooth Whitening

Dentist San Diego, CA

Tooth whitening is a simple and particularly effective way to improve the beauty of your smile. It is a great option if you have discolored, dull, or stained teeth. The main causes of stained teeth are consumption of certain foods, poor dental hygiene, and tobacco use. Certain diseases and medications can also cause discoloration. Additionally, as we age, our teeth darken naturally.

We provide two different tooth whitening solutions for patients looking to significantly brighten their smiles. Before recommending whitening, we will evaluate your mouth to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for the procedure.

Please note that patients with open cavities are not candidates for tooth whitening. Should you have cavities, you will need to have those treated before proceeding with whitening.

Philips Zoom! Tooth Whitening Treatment

We offer professional in-office whitening with Philips’ Zoom! system for dramatic and instant results. Zoom! whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the teeth using hydrogen peroxide gel and light from a visible LED lamp. We use the gel and lamp in conjunction with each other to produce maximum whitening results in the shortest possible time.

Take-Home Tooth Whitening Treatment

We offer custom-fitted whitening trays for purchase at our office, which allow you to brighten your smile from the comfort of your own home. Results are noticeable right away, and moreover, will continue to improve over the course of the treatment process. The trays are reusable for touch-ups, and provide long-term results with less risk of sensitivity than the in-office procedure.
