Teeth Whitening

Dr. Arteaga Family & Cosmetic Dentistry knows that everybody loves a bright white smile. Tooth whitening is a process that bleaches the enamel to lighten and remove any tooth discoloration and stains from teeth. Tooth discoloration can be caused many factors, including: beverages that stain (such as coffee, teas, and colas), tobacco, trauma, tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, and nerve degeneration.

The process of bleaching teeth is considered to be the safest cosmetic procedure available today. Research and clinical studies show that under the supervision of your dentist, whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide and/or hydrogen peroxide is safe for both teeth and gums. Typically, these whiteners usually come in a gel form and are applied by the use of a custom-fitted mouth guard, which Dr. Arteaga will make for you, fitting your teeth exactly.

If you are a candidate for tooth whitening, you should consider chair side tooth whitening at Dr. Arteaga Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. Sessions generally take from 30 minutes to one hour and are pain free. We can also provide you with a bleaching kit for convenient home use.
