Is teeth whitening a safe cosmetic treatment for San Jose area patients?
Brightening the smile is one of the easiest ways for patients to enjoy a more beautiful smile quickly and easily. When patients visit the practice of Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental in the San Jose area, they are often introduced to the advantages of teeth whitening services.
Teeth whitening is the process of rejuvenating the smile by breaking up stains and discoloration on the surface of teeth enamel and therefore reducing the yellow, dull appearance to the teeth. It can brighten up to eight shades whiter in one treatment, and is much stronger and longer-lasting than over-the-counter whitening products available at the local drugstore. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental offer this and many other cosmetic services in their state-of-the-art practice.
Teeth whitening through a professional dentist is always much more effective than store-bought solutions. At our facility, we offer both in-office power bleaching and our special, medical-grade take-home whitening kits. Both are effective at dramatically improving the appearance of the teeth and lifting unwanted stains from the surfaces. The in-office treatment is done in our practice under the supervision of a dental professional, while the take-home trays are made using impressions of the teeth and sent home with special instructions and high-quality bleaching gel to be used within the trays and worn once a day for several weeks. Patients find that both will provide the same results, just the in-office power bleaching is faster at achieving them.
Many patients interested in rejuvenating the smile will ask their dentist if cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening are safe for the teeth. While some patients may experience some short-term sensitivity to their teeth after treatment, this is minor and will go away. Other than that, there are no side effects that may negatively impact the way the smile looks or one’s oral health. It will only boost the color of the teeth and provide patients with the confidence they deserve with a beautiful smile!
