How Effective is In-Office Teeth Whitening?


In-office teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways to whiten your teeth. The procedure uses professional-strength whitening solution, which is typically activated using a special light or laser. Because it is performed under our direct supervision, you can be confident of your safety at each stage of the whitening process. Our cosmetic dentists can help you decide if in-office whitening is right for you.

Professional whitening can be a great choice for patients who have:

  • Healthy teeth and gums with no untreated dental disease
  • Stains from coffee, tea, wine, or similar substances
  • A desire for fast, dramatic results

If you are a candidate for in-office whitening, our team will first protect your gums and other soft tissues, and then apply the whitening solution to your teeth. The activating light will allow the solution to penetrate your teeth quickly and effectively, and as the peroxide-based solution breaks down into oxygen and water, it will break the stains into smaller, less noticeable molecules. Your teeth can look up to eight to ten shades lighter after a single whitening treatment. Call us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our teeth whitening dentist in Santa Clara.
