La Mesa, CA, Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most sought after cosmetic dentistry services at our La Mesa, CA, clinic. Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive way to brighten your smile and enhance the beauty of your natural teeth. White teeth make people think of happiness, confidence, and health. Patients with whiter teeth feel more capable during social interactions and share their smiles with other people more often. By making the color of your natural tooth enamel brighter, you can affect the way you feel and make the people around you feel even better too.
Professional Teeth Whitening Benefits
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
- Teeth stained due to diet or other reasons. (frequent coffee or wine drinking, smoking, etc.)
Having whiter teeth is the number one concern for most patients when it comes to the aesthetics of their smile. At A Shop For Smiles – Richard Hagstrom, DDS, Dr. Hagstrom offers professional whitening that is more effective and safer than over the counter whitening options. The most popular method of tooth bleaching available in our office is our at home tooth whitening kits.
At Home Teeth Whitening
At Home Whitening is especially popular among our La Mesa patients because it is convenient and yields dramatic results. With a professional teeth whitening kit, you can whiten your teeth at your leisure, right from the comfort of your home.
When you come into our clinic in La Mesa, California for teeth whitening, we will begin by making impressions of your teeth. Using these impressions we will make custom, clear plastic teeth whitening trays that will fit your mouth perfectly. Our clear plastic trays feel completely comfortable and can be adjusted as necessary for a proper fit. You will be given a special whitening solution that you will add to the trays and wear either twice a day for thirty minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks. We will adjust the whitening instructions to fit your individual needs.
Care instructions for your teeth and trays will be given, and you will be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile. Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine. If you have restorations that need to be brightened, we can brighten them to match your new, stunning white smile.
