Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride.

Why Choose Teeth Whitening?

If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter, teeth whitening might be right for you. Through professional teeth whitening, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:

  • The natural aging process.
  • Poor dental hygiene habits.
  • Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee, and soda.
  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use.
  • Illness.
  • Certain medications.
  • Fluorosis.

Teeth Whitening Procedure Details

During your initial consultation, our dental team at Valley Grace Dental will examine your teeth carefully. We don’t provide teeth whitening if you have ongoing dental problems, such as gingivitis or cavities. Our dental experts first examine your teeth and oral anatomy to ensure you have perfect oral health. If not, we fill the cavities and recommend treatments for the other dental problems before the teeth whitening.

We must also examine your teeth to determine the root cause of your stains. Teeth whitening doesn’t work on all types of stains uniformly — as such, we need to determine the root cause of your discoloration to curate the ideal treatment plan. Before your teeth whitening in Bakersfield, we also measure and note the precise shade of your teeth for comparison.

After curating a treatment plan, we apply a carefully-chosen and safe bleaching solution to your teeth, avoiding the soft tissues and lips. After uniformly applying the bleaching agent, we use a special heating system to catalyze the whitening gel to make it penetrate the tooth’s surface and remove deeply-set stains and discoloration.

Each teeth whitening session lasts for about 15 minutes, but it may be repeated multiple times to achieve the desired results. The procedure is painless and doesn’t involve downtime. You can resume your daily activities with a bright and sparkling smile as soon as you leave our dental clinic.
