Teeth Whitening

Feeling like your teeth could be a little bit brighter and whiter? Drink a lot of coffee or tea and feel like your teeth are looking a little bit more yellow? Or you’ve just quit smoking but get reminded everyday of it from the dark pigment left on your teeth? 

 

Let’s discuss professional ways to brighten up that smile once again!

Do I need teeth whitening?

 

Your lifestyle appears on your teeth; years of drinking coffee, tea, soda, or red wine, as well as smoking, can darken your teeth. Let us help you bring that bright smile back! Leung Dental’s whitening service in Hayward, California, is both non-invasive and simple, and can remove years of stain and color from your teeth in a single, one-hour treatment. Another option is for us to create a custom whitening tray for you to bring home for at-home whitening treatment. If you're interested in either option, let us know at your consultation!

What to Expect

 

1 HOUR TREATMENT

After an examination and cleaning have already been completed at Leung Dental, we will prepare you for a whitening procedure by having you brush with a special toothpaste for one week prior to the whitening. This toothpaste helps relieve sensitivity, which may be a short-term result of the professional whitening. A hydrogen peroxide solution gel will be carefully and evenly applied to your teeth, taking careful precautions to avoid the gums. The solution will be left on the teeth for 15 minute intervals and then washed away. Usually after three intervals of 15 minutes your teeth will have lifted three-four levels of on the shade guide! A fourth interval could be done if necessary.

A relief gel will be applied to your teeth and Dr. Leung will review with you what food and beverages to stay away from temporarily for the next few days.

Brief sensitivity will occur to even the most non-sensitive people, but will not last long. Brushing with toothpastes like Sensodyne will help, as well as staying away from foods at both extremes in temperatures for the next day or two.
