What Is Teeth Whitening?

Aesthetics has become a large part of our world so we understand why the color of your teeth is a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Life Dental & Orthodontics in Walnut Creek, CA can help you address this concern with professional teeth whitening. Although there are tons of store-bought whitening alternatives, we proudly offer a product that has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter remedies currently offered. Our whitening treatments can whiten your teeth by several shades, helping you keep your amazing results for much longer than alternative options. We employ both strips and trays of professional-strength gels that truly work, reaching below the surface of the teeth to remove deep stains, as opposed to consumer-level solutions that literally just scrape the surface and merely produce a brighter shade of yellow at best.

What Is the Teeth Whitening Process?

What you should expect for the whitening appointments is dependent upon the procedure. Since our clinic offers a few treatments for effective and quality teeth whitening, the procedure selected for you will be determined after a consultation where your goals and lifestyle will be discussed and taken into consideration. Most in-office teeth whitening procedures will be completed in less than an hour through the application of professional-strength whitening gel technology that immediately whitens the teeth several shades. Our convenient at-home systems are equally effective and often provide a more subtle result over a few weeks or months.

Life Dental has an excellent Dental staff! Everyone is friendly & accommodating. Please consider Life Dental & Orthodontist for your next visit.

Absolutely love this place! Friendly and accommodating staff and I really appreciate Dr Hockel’s knowledge of what’s going on with not only my teeth, but how it all works together with my airway and everything else too!

I came to Doctor Hockel due to problems with sleep apnea. He diagnosed a narrow palate and some other issues that ultimately are obstructing my airway and recommended a course of palate expansion (upper and lower) before going for more extensive surgery to correct problems with my jaw. It's been really great working with him and his staff! They're all extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. They've answered every question I had and taken the time to explain what's being done each time (in what's going to be a couple-year-long process.) They're definitely using the latest tools and techniques and I feel completely comfortable with whatever they recommend. All in all, a *really* great dentist! [Edit from 2+ years in the future - 10/18/2023] I had my jaw surgery (total TMJ replacement and MMA (Maxillomandibular advancement, to move the upper teeth forward) in St Louis in May (via the only surgeon Dr Hockel trusts to do the surgery, who really is great) and returned to Dr Hockel's care in late June. Sleep apnea is cured, my bite was lined up and everything went well. Today was a great day - I got my braces off! We're now in the process of stabilizing the teeth with a retainer, but they look great and feel even better, with everything in my bite closing in the right places and all the teeth nice and straight and even. Dr Hockel's staff were awesome as usual - I showed up 20 minutes early and they said "come right in!" and we got to work. If you ever need to deal with airway issues (or indeed with orthodontia and other dental procedures), definitely give Life Dental and Orthodontics a call. They're the best!
