Professional teeth whitening is quick, effective, and worthwhile

Dr. Leo Arellano at Leo Arellano DDS PC Providing Professional teeth whitening is quick, effective, and worthwhile

A simple smile is much more important to happiness and success than many people realize. A smile sets a positive tone for the communication between people in personal, social, and professional situations. In a survey conducted by the American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry, respondents said they considered people that have an attractive smile to be more trustworthy, intelligent, sensitive, and successful. These perceptions can improve relationships with family, friends, employers, co-workers, business associates, and even neighbors.

Many people hide their smile, or refrain from smiling at all, because they are embarrassed about the appearance of their discolored or stained teeth. This problem can be resolved with teeth whitening, San Francisco dentist, Dr. Leo Arellano, offers several options, such as Opalescence® or BriteSmile®! to meet the needs of his patients.

The chairside treatments are performed in his office and teeth can be lightened up to ten shades in as little as an hour. The in-office whitening gel is stronger than the at-home gel, but is perfectly safe because the rest of the mouth is protected during treatment. In addition, if sensitivity occurs, there is a professional at hand to handle the issue. This treatment is usually done on the eight front teeth, and can be followed by an at-home whitening kit to optimize the procedure and maintain the brightness.

Dr. Arellano also offers take home kits for patients that would prefer the convenience of whitening at home. The trays are customized to fit teeth snugly, and the whitening gel is thick and sticky to prevent it from leaking out of the tray and prevent saliva from diluting the whitening gel. The gel is available in different strengths, and many of them contain fluoride, which can strengthen enamel, decrease sensitivity, and provide protection from cavities. The at-home treatment is usually completed in about two to three weeks.

Individual results will vary, depending on the causes of the discoloration and the treatment option chosen. The results can last one to two years, upon depending on a variety of factors, such as oral hygiene, habits such as tobacco use, as well as types of foods eaten. If the aesthetics of the smile require more than simple teeth whitening, other options are available. Invisalign can straighten misaligned teeth, dental implants can replace missing teeth, and porcelain veneers can create a quick smile makeover. After a comprehensive examination, Dr. Arellano guides his patients to the best options for their specific concerns. For additional information, call 415-881-4343.

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.
