What Is Involved With Teeth Whitening?

Dr. Leo Arellano at Leo Arellano DDS PC Ex plains What Is Involved With Teeth Whitening?

One of the fastest ways to improve your smile is by whitening your teeth. Many patients of Dr. Leo Arellano’s office in San Francisco enjoy teeth whitening. It is fast and effective, as well as extremely affordable. Teeth whitening is one of many cosmetic dentistry treatments that Dr. Arellano can complete for his patients, and one of the most popular.

The procedure depends on the whitening method that you select. Dr. Arellano’s San Francisco office offers a number of teeth whitening techniques. At your consultation appointment, he will talk with you about the options available and which one will work best to help you whiten your teeth effectively. He offers in-office bleaching, home whitening systems, and other whitening products that can be used in conjunction with professional bleaching procedures to prevent stains and discoloration on the teeth from reappearing. This will also lengthen the amount of time the bleaching lasts.

In-office teeth whitening involves a single visit to Dr. Arellano’s office where a bleaching gel is applied to your teeth and is left on the surface for up to an hour. Depending on the whitening system used, a special light may also be applied to activate the bleaching agent. The process is generally painless, safe, and very effective – perfect for your upcoming wedding or other special event.

At-home teeth whitening uses a set of custom mouth trays that fit snugly to your teeth and are filled with a bleaching gel. These trays are worn for about an hour a day for several weeks in order to gradually whiten your teeth at home with similar results to teeth whitening done in-office.

Finally, for the ultimate in teeth whitening the combined use of in-office and at-home bleaching systems produces the whitest and longest lasting results.

Dr. Arellano also recommends continued whitening with other products such as over-the-counter toothpastes and whitening strips in order to keep your teeth white longer. These products, in conjunction with professional teeth whitening systems, will give you a brighter more radiant smile that you’ll be proud to show off!

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.
