Whitening your smile is one of the safest and easiest ways to enhance the way your teeth look. With our professional whitening in Rohnert Park, you can enjoy better, faster, safer results than any product you’ll find online or in stores.
When to Consider Teeth Whitening
All of our smiles have a small, natural amount of yellow tint to them. But some of us have darker coloration than others. If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, your teeth naturally absorb those stain particles, causing them to look darker than before.
We recommend whitening at times such as:
- When you want a simple, quick boost to your smile
- Before other aesthetic enhancements
- If you feel embarrassed by the color of your teeth
- Before special occasions (weddings, graduation, job interviews, etc.)
Professional Take-Home Whitening Kits
Each of our professional whitening systems consists of a pair of custom take-home trays that are molded to your teeth. The snug fit provides maximum contact with the whitening agents while minimizing the amount of gel that’s necessary. The bright even results far surpass that of anything you can buy from a drugstore.
Wear your trays as directed—usually about an hour a day—and start seeing results within just a few days. Full results are typically visible within 10-14 days at most.
Although over-the-counter kits may seem to be cheaper at first, they don’t work as well and typically require subsequent kits to see a noticeable difference. Your one-time investment in custom whitening trays and affordable refill tubes of professional gel is the most cost-effective alternative.
KoR Whitening for Aggressive Stains
Deep internal tooth stains can be caused by a variety of factors. Medication, for instance, may permanently discolor teeth during development. For especially tenacious stains, we recommend KoR deep bleaching gel to safely lighten the color of your teeth. KoR consists of professional-grade concentrations of whitening ingredients, allowing for effective stain removal throughout your smile.
Maintaining Your Results
To keep your smile bright, our cosmetic dentist recommends touching up with your whitening trays after your six-month checkups. During your cleaning we’ll polish away any new surface stains, providing you with a blank slate to work with. Subsequent touchups typically require fewer applications to keep your smile looking its brightest.
Is Whitening Right for You?
Our cosmetic dentist in Rohnert Park recommends whitening your teeth prior to most smile makeover enhancements. When you do, it provides you with a “blank slate” to work with, matching new porcelain restorations to a brighter shade of enamel.
Teeth whitening is only recommended for people who have healthy teeth and gums, so always reserve an exam before beginning a teeth bleaching regimen.
