If you would like to transform your discolored teeth into a bright, radiant smile, ask Dr. Steven Ross about teeth whitening in Salinas, California. Teeth whitening may be for you if you have healthy, unrestored teeth. Fillings and dental crowns will not be affected by the bleaching product. Keep in mind that mind that while yellowish teeth respond well to whitening, brownish and grayish teeth will not bleach as well, and may not respond to the treatment at all. Our office offers in-office and at-home whitening.

In-office whitening is the quickest way to whiten your teeth. Our dentist will apply the whitening product directly on your teeth. Then with the use of heat, a laser, or a special light, he will enhance the whitening results. Treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes, and many patients see results after just one visit. However, to achieve the results you desire, several treatments may be needed.

At-home whitening kits consist of a custom-made mouth guard and a gel whitening solution. Our dentist will take impressions of your mouth to make a mouth guard that will have ideal fit and comfort. Wear your mouth guard with the whitening solution as prescribed by our dentist. Usually, patients use the mouth guard for several hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.
