In-Office Teeth Whitening

    In-office teeth whitening is a professional cosmetic dental procedure designed to brighten and enhance the color of teeth. Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, this treatment is performed by a trained dental professional in the comfort of their office. The process involves applying a high-concentration bleaching gel to the teeth, which is then activated with a special light or laser to accelerate the whitening process. This allows for quicker and more dramatic results compared to at-home treatments.

    Aftercare and Maintenance

    After completing your in-office teeth whitening session in Los Altos, CA, it's crucial to take care of your newly brightened smile. To maintain the results and prevent discoloration, follow these aftercare tips.

    • Avoid consuming staining foods and beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, and berries immediately after the treatment. These can undo the effects of the whitening process. Instead, opt for lighter alternatives or use a straw to minimize contact with your teeth.
    • Practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing regularly. This helps remove surface stains and prevents plaque buildup that can lead to yellowing.
    • Consider touch-up kits recommended by our dentist in Los Altos, CA, to prolong the whitening effects between visits. Following these simple steps in maintaining your dazzling smile post-treatment will help you enjoy long-lasting results.
