Teeth Whitening Can Bring Your Smile Back to Life
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures offered by our Temecula dentist is tooth whitening. Our Temecula patients trust Dr. Michael Skidmore to help them achieve beautiful, bright, and white teeth the easy way. Our in office teeth whitening takes less than an hour, and offers noticeably whiter teeth right away.
Our Teeth Whitening Process
There is no special preparation required for teeth whitening in our office. No anesthetic is needed for this type of dental treatment because it’s pain free. You don’t need to worry about teeth or gum sensitivity because the whitening gels are now more dense and less likely to cause discomfort like thinner gels. Additionally, Dr. Skidmore can enhance your comfort levels with the help of topical desensitizers such as fluoride.
You’ll wear protective glasses during tooth whitening in the office, and your mouth tissue is protected by a special flexible mouthpiece that helps you keep your mouth open to expose your teeth during treatment. The gel is carefully applied to all exposed teeth while you sit comfortably in the dental chair.
A bright light is then directed to shine on your teeth. The light cures the whitening gel to encourage fast and powerful stain removal. Generally, the whitening gel stays on your teeth for only around 15 to 30 minutes. As soon as the gel is removed from your teeth and you rinse your teeth, you’ll notice that your teeth look whiter.
Maintaining Your Newly White Teeth
To keep your teeth looking great, it’s important to follow all of Dr. Skidmore’s post teeth whitening guidelines. Of course, it’s important that you continue to maintain your good brushing and flossing habits. Avoiding the substance that stained your teeth is also important if you want to maintain your results as long as possible.
How long that you can go between teeth whitening appointments really depends on your teeth and your individual situation. Many patients find that yearly teeth whitening helps them maintain the smile they want to show the world. Dr. Skidmore can evaluate your teeth to design a custom teeth whitening plan for optimal results.
