We offer several different ways to bleach teeth. You could use over-the-counter strips, which end up being rather expensive and sometimes awkward to use, or you can have it done professionally in our office. We offer zoom whitening, which is an in-office procedure where we use heat and light to activate the bleaching agent. We can get as many as eight or nine shades lighter in one session. We typically follow that up with take-home bleaching, because any type of bleaching that you do, there's a little bit of a rebound as the teeth become rehydrate and become moister again. We like to follow up the zoom whitening with take-home bleaching trays that are custom fitted to your mouth, so they're thin, plastic, Jello molds of your teeth that are used to hold the bleaching material in place. The bleaching material is very safe, it's a peroxide-based products, and these same bleaches have been used as antiseptic dental rinses since the 1920s.

Come to Roseville, CA dentist, Dr. David B. Miller DDS for a teeth whitening treatment today.
It’s time to do something about that. You deserve a beautiful smile and the confidence that comes with it. You deserve teeth whitening that works.
Your teeth may look smooth, but they are not. Enamel is full of tiny grooves, craters, and lines too small to see. When you eat or drink something dark, a tiny amount can get stuck in those imperfections. Coffee, tea, wine, soda, tomato sauce, curry, tobacco smoke, and more can get trapped in your enamel. Plaque can also leave stains. Because the places that trap the staining substances are so small, you don’t notice discoloration at first. Given enough time, however, all of those little stains add up. What was once a white tooth can soon look dark, yellow, or dingy.
There are plenty of products for sale that claim to whiten your teeth. If they are FDA-approved, then they will. In order to be sold without a prescription, the teeth whitening agent must be made weak enough to avoid problems if used incorrectly. That means those whitening strips will likely take several uses before you begin to see results. Whitening toothpastes often have an abrasive agent that scours your enamel but can damage it in the process. The safest and most effective way to get whiter teeth is to come to our Roseville, CA dentist office.
We offer several kinds of teeth whitening systems, including Zoom whitening. You can get your teeth whitened at our Roseville, CA dentist office, which normally gets your teeth whiter in just one visit. However, we do offer take-home trays as well. These are different from store-bought systems because they have the professional-strength teeth whitening agent you need for a dazzling smile.
While most people can use our teeth whitening products without a problem, some people should not. You must be at least 16 years old. That’s because the pulp inside your teeth is often enlarged when you’re still growing. Whitening your teeth could irritate that pulp, causing pain. All teeth whitening products work only on enamel, not on restorations like dental crowns or dental implant restorations. You can still use the product, but it will be hard to keep the shade of your teeth even with the crown or restoration.
