Bright, white teeth are the cornerstone of a healthy looking smile, but even with a thorough oral hygiene routine, maintaining pearly white teeth can be nearly impossible.
Foods and beverages, lifestyle choices, and even the aging process can all conspire to make teeth look dingy and stained, but with a simple teeth whitening solution from Salinas cosmetic dentist Dr. Mark Washburn, even the most discolored teeth can once again have a beautiful shine.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Dr. Washburn offers Sensational Smile. Unlike home-use whitening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening (also known as power bleaching, power whitening, professional whitening or chairside whitening) for patients in Salinas, Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Marina, and Prunedale takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are immediately visible.
Take Home Solutions
Dr. Washburn also offers professional take-home whitening kits. Our whitening kit, Opalescence, come with customized application trays that evenly and consistently bleach even the back teeth. Not only are our professional kits substantially more effective than those purchased at stores, the inclusion of customized bleaching trays reduces your risk of solution contact with sensitive oral tissues, which can help protect against tooth sensitivity.
When used as directed, the take-home kits offered by Dr. Washburn produce the longest lasting results.
During your initial examination, Dr. Washburn will assess your teeth, answer any questions about teeth whitening you may have, and help you decide which professional solution best serves your unique needs.
