The Professional Difference
Professional teeth whitening treatment with Perfect Smiles California uses a powerful bleaching solution to brighten teeth in as little as one hour. Our Chula Vista office uses a teeth whitening system through Opalescence®, which allows us to adjust the concentration of the solution to whiten your teeth comfortably and effectively. Your dentist will monitor your progress and, if necessary, apply a second application of the whitening gel to reach your desired shade.

Candidates for Teeth Whitening Treatment
During your initial consultation in Chula Vista, your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening treatment. If you have oral health concerns like gum disease, tooth decay, or damaged teeth, our dentists will have to treat them before you can proceed with teeth whitening.
If you have sensitive teeth and worry about candidacy, your dentist can customize your treatment by adjusting the whitening solution concentration to minimize discomfort.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Professional teeth whitening is safe and supervised by your dentist to minimize any risk of gum irritation and tooth sensitivity. Dr. Garate and Dr. Falcon will use a bleaching concentration that is strong enough to achieve your desired results, without putting you at risk for sensitivity.
Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Stains What You Need to Know
It's important to keep in mind that teeth whitening treatments and products can only address staining of the enamel, or extrinsic stains. This type of staining typically makes the teeth look yellow. If you have intrinsic stains, which occur deeper within the tooth and become visible through the enamel, your smile might appear yellow, brown, or even gray.
Though intrinsic stains can't be treated by whitening, you still have options for whiter teeth. Deep-set discoloration can be concealed through a number of alternative cosmetic treatments, including veneers, dental crowns, and dental bonding. During your consultation in Chula Vista, your dentist can determine which type of stains are affecting your smile and which treatment option will work best to give you the beautiful results you're looking for.
Maintaining the Results Of Your Whitening Treatment
Brush and Floss Properly
It may seem obvious, but practicing good oral hygiene is the number-one thing you can do to maintain your bright smile. Not cleaning your teeth well or frequently enough can lead to plaque and tartar buildup, which can make your smile appear dull or yellowish. Thoroughly brushing twice a day and flossing once a day will help keep your teeth healthy and beautiful.
Watch What You Eat and Drink
Certain foods and drinks, like tomato sauce, soy sauce, red wine, and coffee, can gradually stain your smile when consumed on a regular basis. You don't have to cut them out of your diet after whitening your teeth, but consider limiting your consumption to maintain the results of your treatment.
Smoking and other forms of tobacco consumption are common causes of dental stains. Using tobacco is also harmful for your oral and overall health. It can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and more. Our Chula Vista practice recommends that all our patients who smoke work towards quitting.
