Tooth Whitening

Have you ever bleached your teeth before only to find that you did not get the expected results? Was the color not stable for a long period of time?  Dr. Vasquez employs a technique that has the greatest possibility of long-term success.

Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth.  The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.  Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.  Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

 Reasons for Bleaching:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

Our office's effective bleaching technique starts with the fabrication of custom-made trays and this is one of the reasons this style of bleaching works so well.  The bleaching trays allow the bleaching material to remain in close proximity to the teeth all the way to the gum line, allowing it to work.  Dr. Vasquez uses a safe and effective combination of bleaching agents in order to achieve extremely pleasing results.  This procedure consists of two office visits, the first for custom impressions and the second the delivery of the trays and an education session.  The results are absolutely amazing!  If you want to know more about this powerful technique please call our office and schedule a complimentary consult with Dr. Vasquez.
