Lighten Your Smile With Help From Our San Francisco Dental Team

If you have noticed that your smile is starting to look dark or stained, then this article is for you! Today we will be talking about the treatments our San Francisco dentist uses to lighten and whiten smiles. As you’ll see, you have a number of great options when it comes time to refresh your smile.

The first thing that you’ll want to do is to complete a professional dental cleaning. Visible plaque and tartar can make your smile look dark, dingy, and older. Many people are surprised at how much better their teeth look after simply completing a thorough in-office cleaning.

The next treatment you may want to consider is professional dental whitening. This treatment actually lifts stains from the enamel surfaces, in order to restore your smile to its previous level of whiteness. Our dental team will apply a whitening formulation to your smile, and then you’ll leave the solution on for about 45 minutes (the exact length of time will depend on your needs). Finally, our team will clean the formulation off of your teeth, and you’ll be ready to go! Sometimes people see full results after just one appointment, while other dental patients undergo multiple whitening sessions in order to reach their whitening goals.

When a dental cleaning and professional whitening treatments are not cutting it, you can explore treatments that cover unsightly enamel with fresh and clean materials. Dental bonding, for example, covers natural enamel with dental resin. Cosmetic veneers cover enamel with thin porcelain restorations. Both of these treatments completely cover the visible surfaces of your teeth, and remain in place permanently. These treatments are also both customizable.

As you can see, there is truly no need for you to keep living with a dark or dingy smile. Our San Francisco cosmetic dentists provide the treatments that you need in order to love your smile again.
