Dentist in San Francisco, CA helps patients brighten their smiles with home teeth whitening

Dr. Leo Arellano at Leo Arellano DDS PC helps patients brighten their smiles with home teeth whitening

When people’s smiles no longer sparkle because their teeth have become dull, discolored, or yellowed, they may find themselves looking for ways to bring back the whiteness and the shine. A quick trip to the local drugstore or a scan of the infomercials on a late night will show a number of products that promise to deliver dramatic results quickly. While these products may sound like the perfect solution, many patients in San Francisco, CA, find that they don’t usually live up to their promises. Furthermore, if not used properly, they can actually cause discomfort, pain, or damage to the teeth.

Those looking for ways to brighten their smiles can call Dr. Leo Arellano. He has been helping patients achieve their best, and most confident smiles for many years. With Dr. Arellano and his team, patients can be sure they will not only achieve the results they want, they will do so in a safe and comfortable manner.

Some patients want whiter teeth immediately. However, that treatment uses a high concentration of whitening solution and can have more side effects such as sensitivity. Dr. Arellano offers his patients a different option with custom-made trays and safe, professional-grade whitening solution.

This at-home whitening treatment gives Dr. Arellano and his patients more control over the process than they have with over-the-counter products and greater safety than single-visit whitening treatments offer. For patients who have a greater concern or risk of sensitivity, Dr. Arellano can decrease the concentration in the gel solution. Additionally, the at home treatment gives patients greater flexibility because they can use the whitening trays while reading, answering email, doing light housework, or watching television.

While the dentist prescribed, at-home whitening systems are effective, it’s important to remind patients that if they continue to consume dark foods and beverages, the stains will reappear. The at-home whitening system can be used for touch up sessions in the future, but it’s best to try to avoid those foods or habits that discolor teeth.

Call Dr. Arellano today to learn more about at-home whitening 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.... More Reviews
