Professional teeth whitening offered by a cosmetic dentist in San Francisco, CA

San Francisco, CA dentist, Dr. Arellano, is a dentist who offers professional whitening solutions for patients seeking cosmetic enhancement

One of the most common complaints about the appearance of the smile is dull or discolored teeth. When yellowing and discoloration occur, it may be time to speak to a professional about the benefits of using professional teeth whitening procedures in the San Francisco, CA area. Dr. Leo Arellano is a cosmetic dentist who can assist with brightening the smile using professional-grade products.

What methods of whitening are provided?

While there is a myriad of whitening products in the oral care aisles in your local drugstore, many of these fall short in providing real results. Additionally, using them over and over can be expensive and result in unwanted sensitivity. Instead, we encourage patients to speak with a dentist about professional options, which may include:

  • In-office power whitening
  • Take-home whitening kits

With the in-office power bleaching, patients can enjoy same day brightening. This treatment is performed by the dentist and staff and will include highly monitored bleaching that is done with proper protection for the gum tissues as well. Typically, patients can achieve a more attractive smile with the use of our whitening treatments in office in approximately one hour. These fast and effective results come at a cost but can be a great way to quickly achieve a brighter smile for upcoming reunions, weddings, and other special events.

For patients who want a little more control over their whitening process, we may recommend the use of professional in-home whitening kits. These include custom whitening trays that are fabricated from impressions of the smile. Patients are supplied with high concentrated whitening gels by their dentist that is administered into the trays. The trays are then worn over the teeth for a specific period each day, so patients can brighten their smile gradually over several weeks.

Some patients choose to combine both treatments for amazing results. They start with the in-office power whitening that bleaches the teeth several shades in one day, and then they take home a whitening kit to continue to brighten the smile over several weeks. This is the best way to get a brighter smile while having control over the results. Patients can also use their whitening trays and gels as needed to boost the brightness when it begins to dull, maintaining the results over the course of time. We encourage patients to ask about all three methods to determine which one is right for their lifestyle as well as for the results they would like to achieve with treatment.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
