Teeth whitening is a revolutionary procedure that is safe, effective and fast. Our San Carlos, CA Cosmetic Dentistry in-office teeth whitening begins with a short preparation period to isolate the teeth followed by application of a professional strength whitening gel. The specially formulated gel will gently whiten your teeth during three to four short applications. A soothing desensitizing treatment completes the procedure. You can use the dentist-supervised tooth whitening technique, with the custom-made tray, where we provide you with the materials and you perform the treatment yourself at home. If you want faster results, you can use the power whitening technique in the office. We will do most of the work for you, and you will leave the office with teeth that are several shades lighter. We will then give you a set of custom made clear trays to continue the whitening process at home. Otherwise, the brightness will fade away. Wear the trays with the bleaching gel for a certain period of time each day, and your teeth will be permanently lighter. While bleaching is a permanent treatment, your teeth do tend to continue to pick up stains from food and drink throughout your life. Save your trays and your left-over gel, and about once a year use them to touch up your teeth to maintain that beautiful white appearance. See More...
