Preparation for Teeth Whitening Procedure

Before any teeth whitening is done, our professional dentists ensure that an initial examination is carried out to discover any dental diseases that may have developed. This is an important part of the procedure because if any problems are discovered they are addressed to ensure that the result of the whitening procedure is more effective and long lasting. It is important that whitening is performed in a healthy, cavity free environment to reduce complications such as excessive sensitivity.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are two kinds of teeth whitening procedures including non-vital and vital whitening.

Non-Vital Whitening
This type of tooth whitening is performed on a dead tooth that has undergone root canal treatment. Often, the yellowish or grayish color comes from within the tooth, requiring the dentist to place a whitening agent inside the tooth.

Vital Whitening
This is the most common tooth whitening procedure. A gel like whitening solution is applied to the tooth’s surface directly. The procedure takes 20 to 40 minutes and is comfortable and safe. The number of visits depends on the severity of discoloration of your teeth. We also offer a slower, take-home alternative using custom trays.

For whiter, brighter, and cleaner teeth, give us a call at (858) 345-4497.  We’re not just your Solana Beach Dentist, we also serve the surrounding areas. We’re proud to be your dentist in Del Mar, Encinitas, La Jolla, Carlsbad, La Costa and San Diego as well.
