Teeth Whitening In Mission Viejo

HOW DOES TEETH WHITENING WORK?

Professional teeth whitening lightens the shade of your enamel with the use of chemicals such as hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. These chemicals bleach your enamel through oxidation – breaking up compounds that hold onto staining molecules. 

Once we've broken down these compounds, the molecules have an increased ability to reflect light, which results in a whiter and brighter smile. This can be performed in one of two ways: in the dental chair or at home. 

Ultimately, peroxide whitens the teeth in both treatments but is done much more rapidly in-office and gradually at home. Contact us at Smile Dental Boutique today to schedule an appointment.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR TEETH WHITENING APPOINTMENT

Clean Tooth icon

CONSULTATION

At your consultation, you’ll discuss with your Mission Viejo dentist what your goals and aesthetic problems are with the shade of your teeth so we can determine which treatment is most suitable for you.

Treatment Plan

After examining your teeth and discussing your goals, we can formulate a whitening treatment plan that will fit your budget, needs, and schedule.

Preparation

To prepare for an at-home whitening treatment, we will need to take impressions of your teeth. To prepare for in-office treatments, we will place a cheek retractor in your mouth and a gel to protect your soft tissue from the whitening agent.

Whitening

You will receive whitening trays for take-home whitening along with instructions. In-office whitening involves us applying the whitening gel to each tooth and activating it with UV light.

IN-OFFICE

Nothing can replace a whitening treatment performed in the dental chair by the dentist. This will produce the most powerful and instant results, perfect for special occasions. The process begins by applying a protective gel to your gums so the whitening agent doesn’t come into contact with them. 

A cheek retractor is also used to keep your mouth open and prevent the whitening gel from touching your cheeks. A peroxide-based whitening gel is then applied to every tooth and activated with UV light. 

This process takes about one hour and can lighten your teeth by up to 10 shades. Severe discoloration may take multiple appointments to achieve the desired results.

TAKE-HOME

Have sensitive teeth, are short on time, or would you rather just whiten your teeth from home? Our take-home whitening treatment can achieve the same results as in-office whitening over a week instead of a single one-hour appointment. After the initial appointment you will also want to do a touch up once a month to maintain the results.

You’ll need to come in for an appointment so we can take impressions of your teeth and that will fabricate your custom-made whitening trays. Once they’re ready, you’ll pick them up from the office in a few weeks, along with written instructions and the whitening product.

To whiten your teeth, you will apply the whitening gel to the trays, place the trays over your teeth for the specified amount of time, and repeat every day for one week.

GLO WHITENING

GLO Science is revolutionizing the way you can whiten your teeth. GLO stands for Guided Light Optics, a technological advancement that accelerates the whitening process with a combination of light and heat. A special mouthpiece directs the heat and light towards the teeth, energizing the hydrogen peroxide formula, to provide quicker results, without increasing the risk for tooth sensitivity.

The best part of the GLO Whitening System is that you can get amazing results from the comfort of your own home! We make it easy to get the smile you deserve, without the sensitivity that comes with traditional trays or strips.

WHICH IS THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?

The right treatment for you is whichever treatment best fits your lifestyle and needs. Our in-office treatment is best for patients looking for a quick fix or who have a special event coming up which necessitates instant results. Our office is located in Mission Viejo, CA.

Meanwhile, our take-home whitening treatment is less abrasive because the whitening agent contains a lower concentration of peroxide and does not involve UV light. This is a good option for patients with tooth sensitivity as well as patients who are very busy and would rather whiten their teeth from home.
