Teeth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Every day we subject our teeth to a host of staining agents (coffee, tea, tobacco, etc.). Teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth quickly, and at a much lower cost than other techniques. Check out the other cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer.
The outer layer of each tooth (called the enamel) contains pores that hold stains. Teeth whitening wipes out these stains and measurably brightens your smile. If you are a Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, or Mountain View patient seeking teeth whitening, contact our office and arrange a consultation. Visit our Smile Gallery and see some of the results our patients have achieved. In as little as one visit, you too can have dramatically whiter teeth. Make an appointment with Dr. J. Brent Gorrell today.
Teeth Whitening – LaserSmile™
Teeth whitening allows you to achieve dramatically whiter teeth in just one visit to our Mountain View office – serving Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, and Los Altos. LaserSmile™, a revolutionary teeth whitening procedure that is safe, simple, and hassle-free, produces whiter smiles in less than an hour. This shorter treatment time facilitates a decreased and safe exposure to heat. Sensitivity, a common side effect of other whitening devices, is thereby reduced.
In addition, the LaserSmile™ procedure is performed only by licensed dentists and dental professionals to further ensure your safety. Using the most advanced teeth whitening technology, LaserSmile™ safely and effectively whitens stained teeth in just one office visit.
The Procedure – Teeth Whitening
The LaserSmile™ teeth whitening treatment procedure is similar to other teeth whitening treatments. However, the LaserSmile™ teeth whitening procedure utilizes a special laser. Los Altos, Sunnyvale, and Palo Alto patients who choose teeth whitening using LaserSmile™ achieve dramatic smile makeovers.
- Dr. J. Brent Gorrell will evaluate your pre-whitening teeth shade.
- The teeth which will be whitened are isolated.
- Eye protection and a bib are placed to protect from any splashes.
- A peroxide gel is applied to your teeth.
- The special LaserSmile™ laser is used to activate the gel.
The laser is only exposed to a few teeth at a time and even then only briefly (about 15 seconds). During the entire teeth whitening process (about 24 minutes) it is likely that each tooth will only receive about two to four minutes of exposure to the laser's output.
Over the last decade, teeth whitening has become one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures. Every year, thousands of Americans improve their smile using teeth whitening.
