Teeth Whitening in Carlsbad CA

Do you cover your mouth or avoid smiling altogether because you’re embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth?

Isn’t it time for you to look in the mirror and love what you see?

A brighter smile could make you appear years younger and give you a significant confidence boost!

At Delicate Dental Arts, choose from quick and easy in-office teeth whitening or convenient take-home teeth-whitening kits. Both professional systems yield amazing results.

Why Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is more potent than over-the-counter systems. Only a dentist can prescribe professional systems. As for safety, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends patients check with their dentists and have a thorough oral exam before teeth whitening treatments. 

In short, teeth whitening lifts stains from tooth enamel. If your teeth are dingy because of coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, dark foods, or age, professional-teeth whitening might be right for you. Dr. Nguyen will consult with you and provide all the information you need to make a wise decision about your teeth-whitening procedure. 

In-Office Teeth Whitening

When you need a fast solution to a dark, discolored smile, in-office professional teeth whitening can be an excellent choice. In just one hour, your smile will be several shades brighter and the entire procedure will be overseen by a skilled and experienced dentist.

Many people who choose to whiten their teeth in the office are seeking a beautiful smile in time for a special reunion, an important job interview, or even their own wedding!

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home whitening costs less and takes longer, but you’ll get the same great professional results. We’ll take impressions of your teeth to craft trays that fit your teeth perfectly. This helps avoid many of the problems that are inherent to whitening kits you can buy at the drugstore, such as leaking and uneven coverage. This translates to less sensitivity and better, more even, more beautiful results.

If you have sensitive teeth, you can still whiten your smile! Professional whitening is developed to reduce sensitivity and we can discuss other options to help eliminate any discomfort as well. Most people whiten easily and comfortably, so we don’t anticipate any problems.

Other Options for a Whiter Smile

Certain types of staining and discoloration may be resistant to even professional-strength whitening kits. Don’t despair, though. We offer a number of esthetic dental treatments at Delicate Dental Arts that can conceal discolorations and improve the appearance of your smile.

Dr. Nguyen can discuss your options, which may include porcelain veneers, bonding, crowns, or Snap-On Smile.
