Teeth are prone to staining. Coffee, wine, and other foods can cause discoloration of the teeth. Aging is also known to lead to discoloration, no matter your diet. Dr. Mark Washburn of Romie Lane Dentist offers quality, professional tooth whitening services for patients that are looking for a brighter, healthier looking smile. Schedule an appointment today at (831) 758-0959 for your consultation.
Types of Teeth Whitening Available
The products that most patients purchase over the counter – like the strips sold in retail stores – are not ideal for teeth whitening. They do not fit perfectly around teeth, they are a lower grade bleaching agent, and they can cause issues like tooth sensitivity.
Dr. Washburn offers professional tooth whitening, using only state of the art, dentist-quality whitening agents. There are two different approaches to this type of procedure, both of which are available at Romie Lane Dentist:
Here at Romie Lane Dentist, our team can provide you with a whiter smile while you’re in the office. Results vary, but many patients report as much as 8 shades whiter by the time they leave the office. At the end of the treatment, we can give you a take home tray and safe bleaching agent with instructions to help you keep the progress going at home during your spare time.
The retail, store-bought strips tend to not work because they’re weaker than other forms of tooth whitening, and they are unable to get into the ridges and grooves around the teeth. At Romie Lane Dentist, those that do not want an in-office treatment may want to consider our at-home whitening kits. These include an application tray that is made for your mouth, combined with dentist quality whitening agents that are less likely to irritate sensitive tissues while providing a brighter white.
