Are discolored or dull teeth causing you to feel less confident about your smile? When you're embarrassed by your teeth, you might hide your smile in photos or not present yourself in the way you'd like when you first meet someone.

The good news is that professional teeth whitening is affordable, effective, and you can complete it in the comfort of your own home. Here's what you should know about teeth whitening in Foothill Ranch.

How Dental Teeth Whitening Works

At Healthy Living Dentistry, Dr. Roy Kim, DDS offers personalized take-home teeth whitening kits to deliver proven results in 10 to 14 days.

He starts by taking impressions of your teeth that he uses to make customized plastic bleaching trays. The trays fit snugly over your teeth and provide a secure fit to ensure that no bleaching gel escapes and harms your gums or soft tissues.

Dr. Kim will send you home with prescription-strength bleaching gel that he chooses based on your levels of sensitivity and your smile brightness goals. Most patients achieve their bright new smile by bleaching for 30 minutes a day for about ten days.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening Over Store-Bought Products?

When you can find so many teeth whitening products at your local grocery store, why would you choose teeth whitening at a dental office? Actually, for several reasons:

  • Your dentist has access to prescription strength whitening gel, which means quicker and better results
  • Your dentist can help if you encounter any issues with tooth sensitivity during your bleaching
  • Customized whitening trays are safer and more effective at providing great results

Best of all, you'll always have your whitening trays available to you at home whenever the next vacation or big event arises.
