For the Best teeth whitening in San Francisco, you need your dentist
It seems that most people would love to have a little smile makeover. Even when teeth are straight and healthy, discoloration may occur simply as a result of the foods and drinks regularly consumed. Fortunately, there are several options available when it comes to whitening teeth and regaining confidence. However, not all options are effective, or even safe. For the best teeth whitening in San Francisco, you really do need your dentist.
Whitening toothpastes are very commonly used today. Consumers tend to believe that such products will improve the appearance of their teeth significantly and therefore use them on a daily basis. While there is very little risk involved in using a whitening toothpaste every day, there are also limitations on how much they will improve your smile. These products are manufactured to remove surface stains. As such, they typically contain either special abrasives that gently polish the teeth or chemicals such as sodium tripolyphosphate that help break down or dissolve stains. The stains removed by a whitening toothpaste are on the surface; the fact is that most stains are within the deeper layers of the tooth.
After whitening toothpastes, consumers will usually reach for the best-looking whitening strip. Strips are made of thin plastic and coated with a whitening agent such as hydrogen peroxide. The dosage of the bleaching agent is provided by the manufacturer at the back of the packet of the whitening strip, and is limited due to the fact that this is a commercial over the counter product. While manufacturers tout amazing results and ease of use, strips, like whitening toothpastes, only have limited results also.
Rather than fall into the trap of believing over the counter methods are more cost effective and just as reliable, speak with Dr. Arellano about professional teeth whitening services. Today, there are options that fit into every budget and lifestyle. Whether you choose an at-home method or one that takes place right in our office, in just one visit, you are guaranteed better results that last longer than what you get with commercial products. Through professional grade products, bleaching agents reach into the deeper layers of the tooth where stains have settled.
By working with Dr. Arellano, you can remove years of staining on your teeth and improve your appearance with a dazzling smile!
