Everyone aspires to having a beautiful, flashing smile and white teeth, just like film stars and toothpaste advertisements. Surprisingly for those of you who live in California, it is a relatively simple procedure to achieve a gorgeous smile by way of teeth whitening in Bakersfield, CA.
Tooth whitening or bleaching is probably the most common form of cosmetic dentistry used today and we are able to offer the very best methods of tooth whitening in the City of Bakersfield, CA.

Children have the whitest teeth but, as we age, the dentin layer of our teeth darkens and may also be mottled by nicotine stains, tetracycline (antibiotic) use or large quantities of tea, coffee, red wine and citrus fruits.

As every patient is an individual and has different needs, one of the dentists at Sunshine Family Dentistry will examine your teeth and mouth and decide which form of tooth whitening would be the most successful for you. The treatment plans range from a deep cleaning to remove any plaque which may be stuck to your teeth (and which will therefore not allow the whitening product to penetrate the teeth) and the simple use of special toothpastes, to multiple visits to our surgery so that precision applications of special preparations can be used in order to achieve the desired results.

The most common method of tooth whitening is performed in our surgery at Sunshine Family Dentistry. The procedure involves the use of a specific amount of peroxide gel which is loaded into a special tray that fits over one’s teeth. It is then inserted into the mouth and left there for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Depending on the severity of the staining, this procedure could be repeated two or three times at each appointment, up to a maximum of one hour, until the desired color is achieved. In some stubborn cases, you may be given some gel and a mouth guard (specially made to fit around your teeth) and be instructed to continue the treatment at home; or to return to the surgery for the dentist to do it for you. You should also be aware that, although this form of treatment offers excellent results very quickly, it does not last forever; and you will therefore have to repeat the procedure from time to time.
