Teeth Whitening

Brighten Your Smile

Teeth WhiteningEven with excellent care, your teeth will naturally lose their bright white shade. While the natural aging process has an effect, so do staining agents like tobacco and super-pigmented foods like coffee. Fortunately, you do not need to spend a lifetime suffering from a discolored smile. We offer teeth whitening so teeth appear much whiter and brighter. To learn more about achieving a dazzling grin, visit us today at Dental Associates of Riverside.

Teeth Whitening

Your teeth are composed of many layers. The outer layer, called enamel, is easily treated for discoloration with professional teeth whitening. However, over-the-counter (OTC) products like whitening strips and even daily brushing and flossing cannot address serious staining. Too many attempts to whiten teeth on your own may lead to sensitivity or damage, which is why we invite you to visit us for professional cosmetic treatment. The application of carefully formulated hydrogen-peroxide-based bleaching gel will penetrate your enamel, breaking up and displacing stains as the result of an oxidation process.

Teeth Whitening Options

We offer in-office and at-home whitening to address the preferences of our patients. If you prefer an accelerated treatment, you can visit us for approximately one hour for in-office whitening. After protecting your soft tissues, we place bleaching gel over your teeth. In some cases, we may use a light to activate the gel. Within one hour, you can expect stunning improvement. For individuals who prefer to whiten at home, we offer at-home whitening. We will provide you with custom-fitted trays and bleaching gel that you will take home with you. Over the course of one to two weeks, you will place the gel into the trays and wear them once daily.
