Professional Teeth Whitening Is The Way To Go For A Brighter Smile

Welcome back to our dentistry blog!

At the office of Dr. Ghina Morad, we are a comprehensive family dental practice, situated among the streams and redwoods of San Carlos, California.

In our convenient San Carlos Avenue location, we offer dental cleanings and exams, fillings, gum disease treatment, TMJ relief, orthodontics, and more.

Because many of our patients are concerned about the color of their teeth, we also provide several great whitening solutions.

Your Teeth Will Darken

We have found that your smile tends to darken with age.

What’s more, your daily habits can leave layers that yellow or stain your teeth in unflattering ways.

In California, it is no secret that we love our morning dose of coffee or tea.

Some of us even enjoy a soda pop with lunch or a glass of red wine with dinner.

We are surrounded by wine country, after all!

And with all of our wonderful seasonal fruits and vegetables, our meals are likely to contain foods rich in color.

All this means that, even if you are diligently practicing good oral hygiene, these foods and beverages will take their toll on the natural color of your teeth over time.

And we all know that darkened, yellowed teeth can be embarrassing.

Over-The-Counter Help Usually Doesn’t Help

These days, no matter where you go, you can find over-the-counter “whitening” toothpastes or at-home whitening kits that claim to quickly take care of your stains.

However, most over-the-counter kits do not work very fast, when they work at all.

Plus, they expect you to know how to manage the process.

And they leave you with one-size-fits-all trays that usually don’t fit your unique mouth.

This can cause damage to your gums when the whitening solution doesn’t stay where it is supposed to and seeps out onto your soft tissues.

Dr. Morad Has Effective Whitening Options For Your Family

There’s just no escaping the fact that dentist-guided teeth whitening is always going to be better in terms of getting the job done, and doing it safely.

At our San Carlos dental office we have a few good options that we can oversee for you.

ZOOM! Whitening

ZOOM! is particularly effective system that is done on-site.

For this, we utilize a teeth whitening gel that is activated using a special light.

After three 15-minute sessions (that take place over the course of one visit), you’ll be able to leave our office with a fresh new smile that is much whiter and brighter.

Directed Whitening At-Home

From an impression of your teeth, we are able to create whitening trays that fit your mouth perfectly and maximize the spreading of our professional-grade whitening gel.

You will see stunning results within a week of wearing these trays for two or so hours each day.

The best part is that this can be completed in the comfort of your own home and on your own timetable, under our direction of course.

Internal Bleaching

If your teeth are grey or discolored as the result of a root canal or some sort of trauma, we have a special technique for dealing with that.

First, bleaching material is applied to the inside of your tooth.

Then we will apply a special composite to protect the surface so that your tooth remains nice and white.
