For the Best teeth whitening in San Francisco, you need your dentist

Dr. Leo Arellano at Leo Arellano DDS PC Providing Best Teeth Whitening

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.

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.... More Reviews
