How to fix a discolored tooth with teeth whitening services in Dublin, CA
Patients in Dublin, CA considering advanced teeth whitening services to fix a discolored tooth or a stained smile are welcome to contact StarBrite Dental Dublin and visit Dr. Munira Lokhandwala to discuss solutions. Bleaching the teeth is the most common way for men and women to address imperfections of the natural tooth enamel such as yellowing or dullness.
What teeth whitening services are available?
At StarBrite Dental Dublin, there are two methods of whitening available to patients for their consideration, including:
- In-office power bleaching
- Take-home whitening kits
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team educate patients on the advantages of each so patients can make an informed decision regarding the one they would like to choose. There is no “one size fits all” option for all our patients, so we like giving patients the opportunity to select a treatment that is best suited for their specific needs and desires.
In-office power bleaching
The first option for professional whitening is in-office power bleaching. These treatments are done right in our office within two hours and include a thorough cleaning of the teeth, an examination, and the whitening session. Patients relax in the dental chair as our whitening products work to lift and eliminate staining and discoloration from the natural tooth enamel. Deep stains respond extremely well to this treatment. Patients who have in-office power bleaching performed will notice their smile brightened up to eight shades whiter in just one session.
Take-home whitening kits
Another option for our patients to consider is take-home whitening kits. This treatment is not as expensive as in-office power bleaching but does take more time to reach comparable results. Many patients enjoy having more control over their whitening process, since they use these trays in the privacy of their own home. The trays are custom-made for the individual using impressions of the dental arches. This ensures proper fit while patients wear their trays to achieve the results they desire. Take-home whitening kits may be used each day to brighten the smile over the course of several weeks. Once the patient has reached the level of white they desire, they can use the whitening product every now and then to maintain the results.
One other solution includes a combination of the in-office power bleaching and the take-home whitening kits. Some patients decide to jump-start the whitening process with in-office power bleaching. Then, patients request to have whitening trays made to use at home to continue to brighten the smile. By combining the treatments, patients not only achieve faster results, but enjoy these results for longer than usual because they continue services at home. Combination treatment is best for patients who have stubborn stains and want to enjoy results for many months and years instead of just a short-term boost of brilliance.
Which whitening treatment is right for me?
Choosing a whitening treatment that works for you is a personal decision. However, our team of professionals can help ease the confusion by providing the information patients need to make an educated selection. For patients seeking fast results, in-office power bleaching will be recommended, while patients seeking more control and a gradual enhancement would be better suited for the take-home whitening kits. Anyone who is interested in long-term results may ask about using a combination of the two for a brighter smile!
How much does whitening cost?
Whitening in the dental office is more expensive than over-the-counter options, but the results are faster and longer-lasting than anything at the local drugstore!
