Whether you are just looking to brighten a dull, yellowing smile or you have a special occasion coming up, there are many reasons people turn to our Madera, CA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ahmed ElSayed, to get professional teeth whitening. Sure, you could whiten your teeth at home, however, if you are looking to get a brighter smile quickly, there is no better option than in-office whitening. Read on to learn why

What kinds of stains can professional teeth whitening treat?

The benefit of turning to your dentist in Madera, CA, for whitening treatment is that this powerful system can target more serious stains that may not respond as well to at-home whitening treatment. While it is true that yellow stains do respond the best to bleaching, even brown stains can be treated with teeth whitening. Just remember: the darker the stain the more whitening sessions you may require before you get the results you want.

What should I expect from whitening treatment?

This will depend on whether you choose to have our dentist whiten your teeth right here in our office or whether you want to get at-home whitening from us. In-office whitening is more expensive than professional at-home systems because you will often see visible results in just one session. Although in-office is the fastest way to get a whiter smile if you aren’t on a time crunch and are on a budget, than our at-home whitening system may be a better option for you.

With our in-office whitening system, you can expect the process to take anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour. We will need to clean the teeth and remove any plaque and tartar buildup beforehand. From there, we will place a protective barrier over the gums and lips before placing the bleaching gel over your smile. The bleaching gel will then be left on for an extended period of time before being rinsed off and reapplied. Sometimes a light is directed over the teeth to activate the gel.

With our at-home system, we will provide you with custom-fitted, sometimes pre-filled whitening trays so all that you have to do is pop the trays into your mouth when it’s most convenient for you.
