Teeth Whitening Santa Monica
Brightleaf Dental is the best source for your teeth whitening needs in Santa Monica. Do you feel confident in the color of your teeth? Most Americans don’t. Americans spend around 1.4 billion dollars a year on over-the-counter whitening products. Here in Santa Monica the plentiful opportunities for good meals and fancy drinks that stain your teeth are almost too limitless to list, but whether you’re enjoying your morning tea or enjoying that homemade Italian tomato sauce, with Brightleaf Dental teeth whitening you’ll smile big before and after. Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and LA smiles have quite the shine, so let us help you smile brighter than any of the stars! Brightleaf Dental has a couple different options for teeth whitening available in our office and to take home. Be confident in your smile.
At Home DIY vs. Dental Office Teeth Whitening
Teeth Whitening, or bleaching, is a simple non-toxic, non invasive treatment we use to lighten the color of your tooth enamel. What’s the difference between teeth whitening at Brightleaf Dental compared to the over-the-counter products? The max percentage of whitening agent available over the counter is 6%, and with those products it can take multiple weeks to months before you see an effective increase in the shade of your teeth. Sensitivity with whitening usually occurs, but based on the lack of ability to isolate the chemicals using strips or at home kits, it is tougher to prevent damage to your gumline. At Brightleaf Dental, we use two common substances for teeth whitening; hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Our team mixes the perfect concentration to help lighten the shades of your teeth. When you decide to get your teeth whitening done in our Santa Monica office, we will first conduct an assessment of your teeth. We will take impressions and make custom fitting trays that hug your gum securely. We have multiple systems that we use; our basic package and deep bleaching package. As part of the basic package you’ll be fitted for custom trays with 10% or 20% bleach to be used for 14 days 30 to 60 minutes per day. Compared to our more advanced “premium” bleaching package, our team will sit down with you for an in office bleaching session for about an hour with 34 to 44% strength whitening agent.
Our team will walk you through all of the prep to make sure there is no sensitivity or aggravated gums. You’ll leave the office with your custom trays for 2 weeks of daily use at 20% bleach and then a 2nd in office bleach session to finish it off. The best part about either package is once your customized trays are made, you can do touch up bleaching at home anytime.
