Our teeth help us eat and speak. But more importantly, they make us look beautiful. An American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Survey showed that people with pearly white teeth and beautiful smiles were perceived as more attractive and friendly than those with flawed smiles. But what to do if one has teeth stains that affect their smile and self-confidence? Don’t worry, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Esfandiari, has the perfect solution for in-office whitening in Los Gatos CA for getting rid of your teeth stains with teeth bleaching.

What is Teeth Whitening or Teeth Bleaching?

Professional teeth whitening is a procedure in which Dr. Esfandiari will use potent yet safe bleaching agents to remove adherent stains on your teeth to give you a pearly white, adorable smile. Whitening Teeth is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic dentistry procedures worldwide. It has been estimated that around 37 million US adults benefited from teeth whitening in 2020 alone.

Who Can Benefit from Whitening Teeth?

Professional teeth bleaching is helpful in removing a variety of tooth stains. Some of the cases where teeth whitening can be effectively used for our Los Gatos patients include:

  • Tea or coffee stains
  • Tobacco stains
  • Red wine or fizzy drink stains
  • Curry or food-based stains

Teeth Whitening at Home Vs. the Dentist?

If you visit your local supermarket in Los Gatos Bay Area, you will find numerous teeth whitening formulas claiming to remove all your teeth stains in a single sitting – and that too in the comfort of your home! But are these at-home formulas really effective compared to professional whitening services? Short answer: no! Why? Because Dr. Esfandiari uses very high potency bleaching agents, which are safe for clinical use but are highly effective in chemically dissolving teeth surface stains. That is why in-office teeth whitening in our Los Gatos office can help you whiten your teeth by up to 5 shades in just one sitting. But on the other hand, most at-home whitening formulas have high-strength bleaching agents. Hence, they are less effective in removing teeth stains than professionally applied formulas. Besides, some whitening formulas use substandard ingredients that may cause adverse reactions. Hence, it is always better to visit a cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Esfandiari in Los Gatos for teeth whitening.

Zoom Whitening

We often come across dental practice advertisements in Bay Area California offering excellent results with zoom or laser teeth whitening. But, have you ever wondered what zoom whitening actually is, and is it really effective? Zoom whitening refers to a special technique where the bleaching agent is activated using blue LED light. The light energy results in the breakdown of the bleaching agent to hydrogen peroxide, which is very reactive, and it effectively dissolves the stains adhering to the tooth enamel, leaching behind a fresh, pearly white layer.
The manufacturers of Zoom whitening claim that this technology allows for the whitening of stained teeth by up to 8 shades in a single sitting. Besides, the zoom whitening formula, used by Dr. Esfandiari, also contains amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), which helps in the remineralization of the tooth enamel following the whitening procedure, thereby reducing the risk of tooth sensitivity and decay. According to the manufacturers of Zoom whitening, over 2.5 million people have benefited from this whitening formula worldwide.

Kor Teeth Whitening (not offered by us)

Kor whitening is another famous in-office whitening formula that uses carbamide peroxide as the active bleaching agent. However, the uniqueness of this formula stems from the fact that the Kor system has trays that have a very effective sealing mechanism, which prevents salivary contamination and dilution of the bleaching agent. This also ensures that the whitening formula remains effective for a longer duration, thereby providing significant improvements in the tooth shade after completion by our Los Gatos patients.

Opalescence Teeth Whitening

Dr. Esfandiari also uses the Opalescence Boost teeth whitening system which offers a range of in-office and at-home products. This system which is the latest and most advanced formula, is based of a carbamide peroxide-based whitening formula, one of the most commonly used ingredients in whitening formulas. Carbamide peroxide quickly breaks down into hydrogen peroxide when exposed to the air. Hydrogen peroxide provides a rich source of oxygen molecules that react with the discolored particles on the tooth surface, thereby removing them chemically. The ultimate result is a milky-white tooth surface and a brighter smile.

Among all the products we have used in our Los Gatos office, Opalescence Boost has been superior with best results and much less sensitivity. That is why Dr. Esfandiari highly recommends Boost Whitening to her patients. Although she uses other whitening systems too, if requested by our patients.

Teeth Whitening Pros And Cons?

Teeth whitening can improve the appearance of yellow or stained teeth and boost self-confidence. However, there are also some potential downsides to consider. When being asked by our Los Gatos patients, Dr. Esfandiari usually brings up these points:

 

Pros:

  • Can improve the appearance of yellow or stained teeth
  • Can boost self-confidence
  • Can be done professionally in a dental office or at home with over-the-counter products

Cons:

  • Can be expensive, especially if done in a dental office
  • May cause tooth sensitivity, if used excessively or improperly
  • Results are not permanent and may require touch-ups
  • Over-the-counter products may not be as effective as professional treatments
  • People with tooth-decay, gum diseases, fillings, crowns, or any other dental work may not be good candidate for teeth whitening treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions about Teeth Bleaching

There are various options for whitening teeth, such as whitening gums, toothpaste, at-home formulas, and in-office bleaching agents. But, if you are looking for the most effective whitening method, Dr. Esfandiari recommends the one that is performed by your teeth whitening dentist in-office. This is because in-office teeth whitening formulas are more potent yet safe enough to prevent any injury to the oral soft tissues.

Teeth whitening uses bleaching agents that dissolve stains from the tooth surface. Dr. Esfandiari uses very high concentration bleaching agents, but they utilize all safety precautions during the procedure to ensure that there is no damage to the teeth. However, some at-home whitening formulas contain substandard or high-concentration ingredients that may cause tooth damage, such as tooth sensitivity or dental decay.

The yellowness of the teeth can occur due to various reasons. For example, it can occur due to age-related changes. In these cases, it is possible to lighten the tooth shade using teeth whitening. However, if the teeth become yellow because of plaque or tartar deposits, the solution by Dr. Esfandiari is to remove them through professional cleaning and then perform whitening to ensure an optimal esthetic outcome.

The time duration for which teeth whitening results last depends on various factors, such as the quality of the whitening formula, the dentist’s skill, and most importantly, oral hygiene maintenance. The better our patients take care of their oral hygiene maintenance after whitening, the longer the results of their whitening will last.

Dr. Esfandiari uses high-concentration whitening formulas that are sometimes activated using LED light to chemically dissolve tooth stains. Compared to at-home formulas, professionally applied whitening formulas are more effective and offer longer-lasting results.

Dentists often use an LED light during teeth whitening. This activates the bleaching agent, which dissociates into hydrogen peroxide and provides oxygen molecules that dissolve teeth stains. However this an older technology. The new Boost whitening technology which is mainly being used by Dr. Esfandiari is a non-LED-based formula and offer better results with less tooth sensitivity.
