Laser Teeth Whitening
For a non-invasive laser treatment that can add shades of brilliance to your smile, Smileneeds Dental offers professional teeth whitening. Whether seeking to regain natural coloration or augment the tone of their dentition, Upland dentist, Dr. Mariano Castro, offers teeth whitening tailored to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.
Who Benefits from Teeth Bleaching?
Professional teeth whitening can serve most patients seeking a more natural sheen to their smile without altering the structure of teeth. There are a number of situations where dental staining can be addressed particularly well by teeth whitening. This includes discoloration due to excessive fluoride exposure or use of medications known to have a cosmetic impact on teeth. Patients whose teeth appear yellowed due to the normal wear of the outer layers can see improvement after whitening. Additionally, teeth whitening may minimize the stains that result from drinking coffee, tea, or wine as well as from smoking.
While effective, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. To keep your teeth bright, Dr. Mariano Castro will work with you to provide regular maintenance. It is also important to note that teeth whitening will not change the color of restorations such as fillings or crowns. Dr. Mariano Castro may recommend replacing these to give a more consistent, natural appearance to your smile.
What Does Laser Teeth Whitening Involve?
Lasers can greatly expedite the tooth whitening process by increasing the activity of the particles in the peroxide bleaching solution. The laser beam is extremely bright, and special glasses will be provided to protect the eyes. The dentist will then direct the beam at the affected area and carefully whiten the teeth. Our goal is to create the look of a naturally white smile.
Whether as a supplement to the in-office service or as the sole recommendation, Dr. Mariano Castro will provide you with proper care instructions for safe and effective at-home whitening. We also encourage regular follow-up visits at our Upland dental office to monitor progress as well as to assist with any issues that arise during treatment.
The amount of time you will wear your tray at home depends on the degree of discoloration and your unique smile goals. This ranges from twice daily wear for 30 minutes to wearing the trays overnight for a period of a few weeks. Some sensitivity is normal after whitening and should subside gradually afterwards. Contact Smileneeds Dental immediately if the sensation does not diminish over time.
