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!

Dr. Arellano has been my dentist since 1989 and I believe he is the best of the best! I have experienced many uncomfortable dental procedures in the past, many due to painful injections. Dr. Arellano has excellent technique in anesthetizing that results in painless injections. He truly cares about his patients and his work. His staff, especially Mei, is extraordinary and will go above and beyond to work in appointments, assist in resolving payment/insurance issues, referrals, etc. Dr. Arellano and his team have always provided excellent care and service over the years. I highly recommend him for your dental care.
