Teeth Whitening

A white smile is the pinnacle of attractiveness. And thankfully at our dental practice, achieving it is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to enhance its appearance. One visit is all it takes to look and feel younger!

Because the natural color of teeth usually falls within light-greyish to yellow shades, after being in the presence of food, beverages, and nicotine, they can become unrecognizable from the pearly whites they once were. This can be a blow to a patient’s confidence, and they may be ashamed of their smile.

We are a dentist’s office providing top-notch teeth whitening and cleaning solutions in South San Jose. Dilber Sraon, DDS’s office works to improve the whiteness of your teeth through a range of cosmetic and dental services. With 20 years of experience, hundreds of happy customers and a variety of kits, products and gels designed to suit your teeth, we’re here to give you your confidence back.

Thinking about getting your teeth whitened, but not sure of the process?

In this day and age of modern dentistry, finding the correct dental service to suit you is extremely simple. There are cosmetic services performed in the office, or other at-home solutions for those who lead a busy schedule.

We recommend you come in for a consultation so our professional dentist can suggest a treatment for you. These specific services are the number #1 cosmetic dental treatment requested across the country, and it’s time to find out how great life feels with that sparkling smile back.

Is getting your teeth whitened safe?

Yes, if performed by a professional. There are excellent kits you can use at home, but the best in the industry are the ones recommended to you personally by a trained dental specialist. Hiring a specialist in the teeth whitening field is the safest and most effective way to get your confidence back.

Before you proceed with teeth whitening treatments you have to make sure that all the cavities in your mouth are filled, otherwise material used to improve the brightness of your smile during treatment may enter the cavity and increase the rate of decay. A check up every 6 months is reccomended but please contact a professional with any concerns before whitening your teeth to be sure.

Will teeth whitening damage my teeth? Does getting your teeth whitened hurt?

The conclusive answer is: NO. Various studies have been conducted on whitening cosmetic services, gel kits and products – all of them have been deemed safe. The enamel on your teeth is considered the hardest tissue in the entire human body and is mainly composed of microscopic tubes, invisible to the human eye. One way getting your teeth whitened works is to send whitening gel deep into the enamel tubes to remove the discoloration.

Yes. This gel can cause some tooth sensitivity after treatment, but this is a perfectly natural response and is not harmful to your teeth or gums. As the gel works its magic, the tubes move from active to inactive in a process known as dehydration. It is absolutely, 100% recommend that you do not eat ANY discoloring food or drink anything that might stain your teeth during this crucial period. Because the tubules are still in the process of reacting, anything you eat or drink WILL stain your teeth.

How does teeth whitening improve your look?

There are many environmental factors that affect the bright whiteness of your teeth, the kind of things you might do every day. These include drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and eating certain foods. Your teeth are bound to get stained by this normal, every day activity.

Our dental office is literally designed to give your confidence back. Services carried out by a dental professional are guaranteed to be more effective than across-the-counter toothpastes or kits you can do yourself at home. Depending on how white you want your teeth, Dr. Sraon’s office will recommend specific treatments that are designed around your mouth. If you want your confidence back, and those sparkly whites to gleam again, check in for a consultancy session and find out what we can do for you.

Will the service work for me? How long will the whiteness stay?

People often ask: ‘Will this whitening treatment work for me?’ The answer is almost always: YES. Our dental services are structured around your mouth on a case-by-case basis. We recommend the best treatment for you, no matter your age, state of your teeth or how white you want your teeth to end up. Plus, teeth are very much the same when it comes to discoloration. Almost always, people’s teeth are stained an off-white, yellow or splotched brownish. These are easily treated symptoms of stained teeth.

In terms of long-lasting whiteness, this depends entirely on those environmental factors we mentioned before – if you drink, smoke or regularly eat foods that stain your teeth brown, then the whiteness will last a shorter period of time. If you want to guarantee a long-lasting whiteness to your teeth then we recommend you book in for regular appointments or use some of our home-kits to carry on topping up your whiteness at home.

How Long Will the Results Last?

A multitude of factors affect the color of teeth, therefore it can’t be certain how long your teeth will stay white. Lifestyle factors are one of the major causes of teeth losing their whiteness. Even if we whiten your teeth, drinks such as coffee and red wine, or habits such as smoking may stain your teeth again, causing discoloration. That said, repeated visits to our office will help keep teeth white. We also offer whitening trays to maintain the whiteness of teeth at home between appointments.
