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.

I want to give a shout-out to Rachel, who is an amazing hygienist. I have been with Life Dental for many years, long before the name of the practice changed. I have been treated by many hygienists over the years, all really wonderful, and Rachel is #1 on my ‘top 10’ list. She is thorough and extremely efficient - a super smart and skilled hygienist. Rachel takes time to get to know her patients - she remembers highlights in my life that she will ask me about at my next appointment, and she exhibits genuine interest. She is a thoughtful and caring person, and a true professional. In general, all services, from the front office to dental care provided by Life Dental are exemplary and I can’t recommend this dental practice more highly.

I took my young boys to Life dental & Orthodontics because they were airway focused and that was really important for a family! We were mostly helped with Katie the RDA and she was so great with the boys made everything fun and super patient with them. I also really appreciated how in-depth Dr. Hockel explained everything to myself and our kids. My boys can get easily overwhelmed and he had such gentle and calm energy throughout the whole process! I really appreciated that! Highly recommend this team! :) Jessie at the front desk is also super helpful and sweet!

Are there any risks associated with teeth whitening at Life Dental & Orthodontics?

Teeth whitening is generally safe when conducted under professional supervision. However, some patients may experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, or mild gum irritation. These symptoms are usually short-lived. Life Dental & Orthodontics takes precautions to minimize these effects by using protective measures and selecting appropriate treatment intensities for each patient.

How do I maintain my whitening results

To maintain the effects of teeth whitening, it is important to avoid staining foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, especially immediately after treatment. Regular brushing and flossing, along with professional dental cleanings, will help maintain the results. The dental team also provides specific aftercare instructions tailored to the type of whitening treatment you receive.

Can teeth whitening remove all types of stains?

Teeth whitening at Life Dental & Orthodontics is effective at removing most external stains caused by foods, beverages, and smoking. However, intrinsic stains, which are inside the teeth, may not respond well to whitening. In such cases, our dental professionals may recommend alternative treatments such as veneers or bonding to address these deeper discolorations.

How often can I undergo teeth whitening?

The frequency of teeth whitening treatments depends on an individual's oral health and lifestyle habits. Typically, a professional whitening session can be safely repeated every 6 to 12 months. Our dental team at Life Dental & Orthodontics advises patients based on their specific needs and the condition of their teeth post-treatment.
