Methods for Whitening the Teeth

Are your teeth looking dull, dark and discolored? Teeth whitening may be an option for you. Our Thousand Oaks cosmetic dentist offers a variety of teeth whitening treatments that can restore your bright smile and your healthy smile confidence.

OTC teeth whitening is one of the most common ways people choose to whiten their teeth. However, this may not be the best solution for most people. That is because OTC whiteners can increase your risk of sensitivity and gum damage, and some people may choose them even when they are not good candidates for this type of whitening.

At-home whiteners are another popular option. These are professional-strength whitening kits that are only available through a dental professional. We offer at-home whitening kits to patients who want gradual, effective whitening results that are safe and healthy.

In-office chair-side whitening may be the best choice for many patients. This type of whitening procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. We apply the whitening gel directly to your teeth so there is no risk of gum irritation. The mixture is then activated with a special light, which helps it penetrate deeply, quickly and evenly. You will have your new smile in just about an hour.

Not every whitening solution is appropriate for every patient, and we recommend a professional consultation before undergoing any whitening procedure to ensure the best possible results. Contact our expert in teeth whitening in Thousand Oaks to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
