Teeth can be lightened effectively by either method; however, the result will not be permanent. Periodic touch-up is necessary to maintain optimal brightness. The longevity of the whiteness varies between individuals, and depends on factors such as age, heredity, and habits. If the initial discoloration was caused by lifestyle habits, and they are unchanged after treatment, results can begin to fade in as little as four weeks, if not sooner. Alternatively, results can last for several years if;

  • Smoking and smokeless tobaccos are avoided
  • Staining beverages such as soda, tea, coffee, fruit juices, and wine are avoided, or sipped through a straw to reduce contact with the teeth.
  • The teeth are brushed or rinsed immediately after consuming richly colored foods. If the food is acidic the mouth should be rinsed, but brushing delayed for twenty minutes to give the tooth enamel time to harden.

During the first 48 hours after in office whitening treatment, the teeth are especially susceptible to staining. During this period, it is recommended that all staining substances be avoided. Dr. Arellano offers a complimentary 15-minute consultation to give the people of San Francisco the opportunity to learn about teeth whitening or other dental treatments. Patients are encouraged to call 415-881-4343 and arrange a personal consultation.

Highly recommend Dr Arellano’s practice.
Dr. Arellano and his staffs are pros and with long experience. It’s your true dentist next door. You can see from pictures hanged on the walk that most, if not all, of his staffs have been working with him for ages. It speaks for itself for how well Arellano DDS PC is!

Have been patronizing this place for many years. Back then I used to live in the same neighborhood. Their service is so good that even after I moved to a new neighborhood that’s super far away from here I still continue to come here for all my dental care.
