If you’re considering teeth whitening, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get at our downtown San Diego dentist‘s office.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is an elective and cosmetic dental procedure that involves the use of safe and effective methods to lighten the shade of your teeth. This procedure is performed by experienced dental professionals who utilize professional-grade whitening agents and advanced techniques to achieve optimal results in the least amount of time possible. This could be through a light-activated “same day” process, or through custom molded whitening trays that hold prescription-grade gel snuggly against your teeth at home. At AlignBar, our San Diego dental team is dedicated to providing top-notch teeth whitening services to help you achieve the best results possible.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Teeth whitening, when performed by trained dental professionals, is considered a safe procedure. However, your teeth and gums must be healthy, as it is not safe to apply bleaching agents in the presence of tooth decay or periodontal disease. Additionally, teeth whitening is not recommended on children or women who are currently pregnant or nursing.

AlignBar prioritizes the well-being and comfort of all our patients. Our dental team is highly skilled and experienced in providing teeth whitening treatments using best practices and high-quality materials that are both gentle and safe. We take all necessary precautions to ensure your comfort throughout the process, making your experience at AlignBar a worry-free experience. For example, we may incorporate desensitizing products or use special barriers to prevent contact with non-tooth surfaces.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Tooth discoloration can occur due to various factors, some of which are natural and others that are artificial. Common causes of tooth stain include drinking dark liquids like coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products. Additionally, certain medications, aging, and genetics can also contribute to the yellowing or darkening of teeth. However, regardless of the cause, teeth whitening treatments can effectively address these issues and restore the natural brightness of your smile. Even if your teeth are naturally yellow, professional treatments can effectively lift several shades to leave your teeth whiter than ever.

What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?

When you visit AlignBar for teeth whitening in San Diego, our dental team will conduct a thorough screening and evaluation to determine the most suitable whitening treatment for your specific smile. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening options to cater to your preferences and schedule. In-office teeth whitening involves direct application of a professional-grade whitening gel to your teeth, which is then activated with a specialized light for a fast stain release experience. This process typically takes about an hour, and you’ll get immediate results.

Can I Whiten My Teeth at Home On My Own?

While there are various over-the-counter teeth whitening products available, it’s generally recommended to seek professional dental care for the best, fastest, and safest results. Over-the-counter products aren’t able to provide the same level of effectiveness or customization as professional treatments. Plus, the generic fit can lead to uneven whitening and tissue burns. AlignBar offers take-home teeth whitening kits that are custom fitted to your specific smile. These kits include contoured trays and professional grade whitening gel, ensuring optimal results while maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Plus, you can keep the gel on hand to touch-up whenever needed!
