Tired of Your Dull and Yellowing Teeth?
Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile.
For many people, dull or stained teeth are the primary concern that they have about their smile. At-home teeth whitening systems are popular, however, if you have older fillings, crowns, and other restorations, you need to be aware that these whitening systems will only work to improve the appearance of the natural tooth enamel, so you won't notice any changes on those restorations. You need a professional whitening treatment from a dentist in Santa Clara, CA.
The Dentists at Crestview Dental Group are committed to giving you a beautiful, bright smile.
What is Teeth Whitening Treatment
Whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will alter the color of your tooth enamel to make your smile look whiter and brighter.
Reasons to Whiten Your Teeth
There are numerous reasons why you might choose to whiten your teeth:
||Brown or yellow stains due to smoking or your diet
||Discoloration due to fluorosis (too much fluoride during the development of the teeth)
||Stains due to certain medications
||Normal wear of the enamel
The Teeth Whitening Process
If you choose to whiten your teeth with a home whitening system, you will generally need two dental appointments. At your first visit, Dr. Wallis will take molds of your teeth to create customized plastic trays to hold the whitening solution.
After your trays have been fabricated, you'll have a second appointment where we'll make sure they fit properly. You'll receive instructions on how to wear the trays for optimal results. In most cases, this will involve wearing them either overnight or twice per day for several weeks.
Caring for Your Whitened Teeth
It is important to remember that teeth whitening isn't a permanent procedure, so to get the most out of your results, you should be sure to avoid foods and beverages that could stain your smile, including: wine, tea, soda and coffee. If you are a smoker, you should also consider giving up the habit. Additionally, you will likely need an annual touch-up in order to maintain your beautiful, white smile.

Great dentist who really talks you through what is going on. I felt like I actually learned a decent amount in this appointment and the dentist and associates are super friendly.
I've been to a few dentists and this was by far the most pleasurable dental experience I've ever had. The ladies at the desk were very helpful and made me feel welcomed. Dr. Lai is is an excellent dentist who was also very accommodating. He took the time to explain every procedure he was doing. He also played one of my favorite albums to make me as comfortable as possible. I'd definitely recommend this dentist and new patients get free teeth whitening kits! :D
