The costs vs. the rewards of tooth bleaching in San Francisco

Dr. Leo Arellano at Leo Arellano DDS PC Explains The costs vs. the rewards of tooth bleaching in San Francisco

Dr. Leo Arellano and his gifted team make smiles sparkle in San Francisco and across the Bay Area with a wide range of professional cosmetic dentistry services. Whether a single dark tooth needs a veneer or all of the teeth need bleaching, they offer effective solutions. The costs of teeth whitening treatments vary, depending on the plan, techniques, and location, but the rewards are universal.

  • Improved appearance – A dingy smile can make someone’s overall appearance seem dingy, no matter how much care is taken with wardrobe choices, accessories, hair styles, or grooming
  • A more youthful look – Discolored teeth are frequently associated with aging, making people seem older than their actual age. Additionally, bright white teeth tend to minimize the appearance of wrinkles because the focus is on the sparkling smile.
  • Restored self-esteem – People who love their smiles tend to value themselves more and exhibit confidence and self-assurance.
  • Better oral health – Patients who whiten their teeth tend to be more proactive about their oral health, scheduling and keeping their bi-annual dental visits to protect their beautiful smile. Teeth whitening might even help smokers who are quitting. When they have those brown and yellow tobacco stains removed from their teeth, they may hesitate to smoke and put those ugly deposits back on their teeth.
  • Fast and effective – All it takes is one office visit, or a week or two in the comfort and privacy of home, to make a dramatic difference in the beauty of a smile.
  • Simple and economical – Teeth whitening is the easiest and least expensive cosmetic smile enhancement available.
  • Safe – The treatment is non-invasive, so the side effects are minimal. The bleaching agents have little to no effect on hardness of tooth enamel, and no effect on the overall health of the tooth. However, when used incorrectly, there is the potential for adverse effects, which is why the supervision of a dental professional is crucial to patients’ safety and wellbeing.

What our patients are saying...

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
