Bright Smiles In San Diego

Bright Smiles In Palmer

Hello San Diego! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most San Diego folks notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.

Over-the-counter tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile, Dr. Jeff Gray can help!

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not lighten the stains and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Jeff Gray DDS, we can recommend new cosmetic dental work, including veneers or dental bonding, if these have aged and discolored.

Remember, anything that can stain a white tee shirt can stain teeth.

Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however with acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel, causing thinner teeth as we age.

San Diego in-office laser tooth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Take-home professional teeth whitening kits are also available at Jeff Gray DDS and can produce the best results over time.

Do Whitestrips Work?

Do Whitestrips Work in La Mesa? If you have visited the toothpaste aisle at your San Diego Wal-Mart, you have probably noticed dozens of products that claim to whiten your teeth. A few years ago, the only over-the-counter tooth whitening options in San Diego were whitening toothpastes and Crest Whitestrips. Now there is a wide variety of products at every drugstore counter in the San Diego area.

Whitening Rinses
San Diego whitening rinses are similar to mouthwashes. They kill bacteria, offer fresh breath and may help remove plaque. Whitening rinses, however, contain tooth-whitening ingredients not found in mouthwashes. Manufacturers advise taking a mouthful of the rinse and letting it slosh around on your teeth for one minute twice a day. Though this method is simple, many users never notice a lightening of their teeth. This is probably because the rinse does not touch your teeth long enough to truly whiten them.

Whitening Strips
The whitening strips you can buy in San Diego grocery stores have a couple of drawbacks. Though they contain a bleaching agent, it is much less potent than those used in San Diego dental offices. Another problem is that they do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface. Though it is possible to remove stains, it can take months to see any whitening. By that point, you have probably spent more money than you would have if you’d have chosen the professional system at your San Diego laser tooth whitening dental clinic.

Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.

If you are serious about dramatically whitening your teeth, the safest, quickest, and most affordable system is at your San Diego cosmetic dental office.
