Teeth Whitening

Dentist in San Mateo, CA

What makes teeth whitening a popular cosmetic procedure? It is safe, quick, inexpensive, and life-changing.

We begin by performing a thorough exam to evaluate your teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure to determine whether teeth whitening is a safe and appropriate option for you. Whitening is appropriate for many people, but not everyone. There are two types of whitening, in-office, and take-home.

Take-Home Whitening. We provide FREE customized take-home teeth whitening FOR LIFE for patients who keep their regularly scheduled hygiene appointments, are in good standing, and for whom whitening is appropriate. Learn More

In-Office Whitening. For those who want rapid teeth-whitening and don't want to use whitening trays, we offer highly effective in-office whitening that's usually completed in one treatment. For in-office whitening, your mouth, lips, and gums will be protected so that only the teeth are exposed, and a strong whitening gel is applied to the teeth. A special light is then concentrated on the teeth to help activate the whitening agent. The total in-office treatment time is about 2-2.5 hours, and you are provided with custom touch-up whitening trays to use at home. We can ensure a comfortable experience as your teeth are being whitened.
