Whiter, Brighter Teeth Whitening Solutions

McElroy Smiles By Design offers teeth whitening near Carlsbad, CA, to help make your smile whiter and brighter. As you age, your teeth naturally darken and become stained. Food and drink you consume cause stains to deepen over time and are made worse by other potential factors, Smoking, wine, coffee, dark sodas, tea, acidic foods, and beverages, and even chocolate can stain your teeth over time and cause tartar buildup. Even though brushing after every meal can help remove stain-causing particles from your mouth, residual particles will remain on your teeth and gums.

Why See a Dentist?

While there are over-the-counter options to whiten your smile, there are better results and fewer risks with a professional whitening. Teeth whitening products from the store are weaker and lower quality than what you are able to get from your dentist. In addition, over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions can damage your tooth enamel or worsen existing conditions like cavities. A professional whitening lowers the risks of adverse effects, including irritated gums and permanently sensitive teeth.

Before beginning treatment, you will receive a thorough dental exam to ensure that you can safely undergo teeth whitening. On your first teeth whitening visit, our dentists will take impressions of your teeth to craft plastic whitening trays that perfectly fit your smile. On your second visit, we will ensure that the trays fit properly and prescribe a regimen that is tailored to you and the results you desire. Within two weeks, you’ll begin to notice a dramatically brighter smile!

Dental fillings, veneers, and crowns will not respond to teeth whitening solutions. Prior to any teeth whitening procedure, we will discuss any need for restorations to ensure a uniform, bright smile.
