Stained or discolored teeth can make you feel self-conscious whenever you open your mouth; they can turn a simple smile into a source of shame and embarrassment. Over-the-counter whitening kits can help, but the results are inconsistent and they can leave your teeth feeling sensitive. That’s why the best solution for stained and discolored teeth is a professional in-office whitening.
At Greg Campbell, DDS, we understand the power of a radiant smile and the social anxiety that can come from stained and discolored teeth. That’s why we offer only the best and most efficient teeth whitening in Long Beach, CA 90807.
Our Whitening System
At our practice, we use the Opalescence whitening system, in which a peroxide-based whitening gel is applied to the teeth to eliminate discoloration and stains without causing any discomfort to your teeth or gums. Opalescence is safe, non-invasive, and takes effect in about one hour, unlike over-the-counter products, which can take months of repetitive applications to begin working.
The in-office Opalescence teeth whitening process is a simple one. First, your dentist will use a shade guide in order to determine the desired level of whitening. Next, your dentist will mix the appropriate amount of whitening gel in a syringe that is connected to a special brushed tip.
Finally, your dentist will apply the whitening gel to your teeth using the brushed tip. The mixture will need to rest on your teeth for about twenty minutes in order for the peroxide to react with the molecules that have caused the staining on your teeth. Last, but not least, you enjoy your beautiful smile!
