If your teeth are starting to look dingy or stained even after brushing, you may want to contact California Shine Dental to make an appointment for some San Jose teeth whitening. What you don’t want to do is to try to depend on those teeth whitening kits that you can buy in stores. Those kits use solutions that are much weaker than the ones a dentist uses. The kits come with a solution tray made as a one-size-fits-all. The problem with that is that everyone’s teeth are different so the wrong size solution tray may leak solution on to your gums and that can cause some very painful problems.

When you go to a a dentist for San Jose teeth whitening, they will first give you an exam to make sure that you don’t have any untreated cavities or any gum infections. If you do have either, they will tell you that they need to be fixed before the whitening treatment begins. The reason is simple, gum infections or untreated cavities don’t go well with the whitening solution. Get some of the solution in an untreated cavity and you will get some immediate pain that you don’t have to experience. Fix them first and the whitening treatment will be pain free. Also the dentist may need to use a dental laser to get some stubborn stains off and you certainly don’t want a laser touching an infection or untreated cavity.

The San Jose teeth whitening professionals at California Shine Dental will start your treatment by making a mold of your teeth so that they can make you a custom made solution tray. The custom fit tray will ensure that there will be no solution leakage. They will then treat your teeth with the proper strength solution to get your teeth to the exact shade of white that you are looking for. They will double check how well the solution part of the treatment has whitened your teeth. The will apply more solution if needed or make use of the dental laser if you have some particularly stubborn stains. When the job is completed, you will have a beautiful white set of teeth. You will be very proud of your smile. Call the dentist today if you have dingy or stained teeth to get started on your teeth whitening process.
