Get Answers to Three of the Most Commonly Asked Questions about Teeth Whitening

There are many ways in which a person can benefit from teeth whitening services. From boosting confidence to improving a person’s smile, there is a lot to be said of this simple, affordable option. At California Dental Group we know that many people have questions about the process. Keep reading to get answers to three of the most common questions we are asked and then contact us at (800) 407-0161 if you have questions about this or other cosmetic dentistry options.

  1. Can I Get Teeth as White as I Want Them?
  2. It is important to know that we are not painting your teeth. Everyone’s teeth have a natural color and this is the shade that their teeth would be if there were no surface stains. This color can vary from one person to another, and as a result how white a person’s teeth can get will vary from one person to another.

    That said, most people ho choose professional whitening notice a dramatic difference immediately after their session. If you do get your teeth whitened and they are not white enough for you, there are other cosmetic dentistry options you can consider including porcelain veneers.

  3. Can I Use a DIY Option at Home?
  4. We understand why you would want to use an at-home option. It may be more convenient and much less expensive but remember that this is a case where you get what you pay for. You may see dozens of options at your local big-box store but these strips, mouthwashes, gels, and tubes of toothpaste do not have nearly the whitening power a dental office does.

    While some of them may provide results, you will likely wait months to see any difference. This can end up costing as much as it would have cost to simply have the professional whitening done in the first place. Note that some of these products can actually damage the enamel of your teeth, which will lead to gray-looking teeth as years go on.

  5. Are There Benefits to Having the Professionals Whiten My Teeth?
  6. Yes. When you take advantage of the teeth whitening options available from California Dental Group we can get your teeth as much as eight shades whiter in a single 45-minute appointment. You will see noticeable results immediately. Even better, the effects you get from our process will last much longer than the results you would get from any DIY at-home whitening process.

If you are ready to find out more about the cost of teeth whitening, what the process entails, and how to get started, we invite you to contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 at your convenience.
