During your initial consultation, our dentists will determine if you are a good candidate for tooth whitening. Normal yellowing due to age or stains from smoking or eating habits — all of these are readily fixed by tooth whitening. Other types of stains, such as from certain medications, are best dealt with by using veneers.
After ensuring that your smile will benefit from the process, our Sacramento dentistry office takes a mold of your teeth. This mold is then used to design and create whitening trays specific to your mouth. This perfection in construction ensures the safety of your gums and reduces hassle for you during the whitening process.
When your trays arrive from the dental lab, you return to Dr. Steele for a second consultation. The trays are checked for fit and you are taught how to use the whitening agents. The trays can be worn overnight or during the day — it’s your choice. The amount of whitening you desire determines the length of the procedure, usually a couple of weeks.
Safer, faster, easier, better – that’s the tooth whitening process when you enlist the experience of our Sacramento dentists to change the brightness of your smile!
