Life is full of big moments when you’ll want to look and feel your very best. But maybe you’re self-conscious about smiling because your teeth aren’t as whites and fresh-looking anymore. If you need a boost to your confidence, professional teeth whitening treatments may be just what the dentist ordered to help you smile like you mean it! If you are in the Los Altos, CA area and are considering professional teeth whitening, Dr. Ken Schweifler and his team can help.
How Do Teeth Get Discolored?
You may have religiously cared for your teeth, brushing twice daily and flossing every day as recommended by your dentist, however, discoloration of your teeth will still occur naturally over time. This staining can also be helped along by other precipitating factors such as smoking or chewing tobacco or daily drinking of coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Even using certain prescription medications can cause discoloration of your tooth enamel.
Following your dentist’s recommendations for regular daily dental hygiene may slow this process and help your smile stay brighter and healthier longer, but it cannot reverse this process completely.
Los Altos, CA dentist Dr. Schweifler offers patients the option of professional strength at-home teeth whitening treatments. This powerful bleaching solution can erase years’ worth of stains and restore a brighter, more youthful appearance for your teeth. A refreshed, white smile can boost your sense of confidence and help you feel ready to meet whatever challenge you’re facing.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit
More convenient than in-office treatments, this method for removing stains from your tooth enamel utilizes custom-fitted trays that Dr. Schweifler creates in the office and maximum strength bleaching gel. The take home kit will provide results far superior to over the counter options such as whitening strips and toothpastes that you may see for sale at your local drugstore.
At home, you will fill the trays with bleaching gel and fit them over your teeth for the prescribed amount of time daily, often overnight while you sleep. The whitening agent will remove stains and, because it contains fluoride, it will also reduce sensitivity and strengthen your enamel. After about a week of regular use, your teeth will look dramatically whiter.
All our teeth whitening products are specially formulated to minimize irritation of the teeth and gums and Dr. Schweifler carefully supervises teeth whitening treatments.
