If your teeth have become dulled and discolored over time, our dentist may recommend our professional teeth whitening services. Normal aging, as well as various other factors and habits, can cause your teeth to become yellowed, darkened, and stained. The following may contribute to tooth discoloration:
- Natural aging
- Consumption of certain drinks, including wine, soda, tea, and coffee
- Eating highly pigmented foods like berries
- Tobacco use
- Certain medications
- Poor dental hygiene
To brighten your smile, our dentist offers two types of teeth whitening in Danville, California. For our patients who are looking for a quick, noticeable change in their smile, we may recommend Zoom Whitening. Zoom is an in-office whitening treatment that uses a special light-activated gel to bleach away stains and discoloration. In just one visit of about one hour, your smile can be lightened by up to 8-10 shades.
For our patients who would like to whiten their smile more gradually, Dr. Gary Cappelletti offers White & Brite™ take-home teeth whitening. You will simply wear custom-fitted trays filled with whitening gel over your teeth while you sleep. In just 2-3 weeks, you will notice your teeth becoming whiter.
