Michael Decherd, MD - San Antonio, TX
If you have discolored, yellowed, and/or stained teeth it may be a hindrance. You may not feel comfortable in social setting when conversing with others and/or cover your mouths with laughing. If you would like to achieve a whiter, more attractive smile, why not consider tooth whitening. There are several qualified Inland Empire cosmetic dentists who can help you reach your ideal outcome with one of the various options available.
Tooth Whitening Treatments
Based on your preference, desired outcome, and dentist’s recommendation, you may choose from in-office treatments and at-home bleaching kits. If you are looking for same day results, you may be interested in an in-office whitening procedure; these can be performed in as little as one hour.
A professional bleaching solution is applied to the teeth to be whitened (typically these are the most visible front teeth on top and bottom) and then either a laser or high intensity light is used. The laser/light activates the oxygen molecules in the solution in order to whiten the teeth; patients usually experience up to an eight shade difference in just one session. At-home treatments entail the use of custom fitted trays and bleaching solution to gradually whiten teeth over a two week period.
After your treatment, it is important that you refrain from eating and/or drinking any staining foods/beverages, including red wine, coffee, tobacco, and dark sodas. You may also want to seriously consider smoking as this is often a cause of staining. Most patients experience satisfactory results that last up to two years.
Tooth Whitening Cost
Along with finding a qualified tooth whitening dentist in Inland Empire, you must be sure to learn of the cost of your desired treatment. In-office procedures may cost between $600 to $2,000 based on the amount of bleaching needed and technique used. At-home treatments range from $500 to $1,000, which also varies based on the type of treatment chosen.
