Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can lighten the color of your natural tooth enamel, creating a whiter and more radiant smile. A variety of teeth whitening kits are readily available over the counter; however, professional treatments are stronger, well tolerated, more effective, and deliver longer-lasting results. Additionally, when you turn toVirginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp. for teeth whitening, you will benefit from the knowledge and experience of a qualified dental professional who can fully personalize your treatment for the best possible outcome.

Reasons to Consider Teeth Whitening

Whitened teeth look healthy and are more visually appealing.Over time, your teeth can become stained or discolored for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Genetics
  • Normal wear and tear
  • Certain medications, such as tetracycline
  • Trauma
  • Highly pigmented foods and beverages, such as tomato sauce, coffee, and red wine
  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Tooth decay

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening involves the application of a hydrogen peroxide gel or carbamide peroxide-based gel to the surfaces of stained teeth.The gel breaks down the stains and makes their color less concentrated, resulting in brighter, whiter teeth. The treatment is only effective on natural teeth; it cannot improve stains on dental restorations, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, and dentures.

Several teeth whitening options are available at Virginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp. including in-office whitening treatments, take-home whitening kits and strips, and whitening toothpastes. We can also create custom teeth whitening trays and gels for you to use at home. At-home teeth whitening methods can be effective for superficial stains, while in-office treatments are best for deeply discolored teeth.

If you are interested in teeth whitening, we encourage you to book a consultation at Virginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp. in Orinda, CA. Your dentist can discuss your treatment options in detail and help you decide which is best for you.
