Teeth Whitening

Today's teeth whitening treatments are so easy, convenient and affordable that they've become a regular part of everyone's beauty routine. If you haven't tried one yet, you'll be happy to know that you have plenty of choices. For the fastest, most dramatic results, consider laser teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening treatments take just an hour and can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. If you're the do-it-yourself type, an at-home teeth whitening kit might be right for you. These professional grade teeth whitening kits produce excellent results over a longer period of time. They can be purchased from your dentist or over-the-counter, but for best results, it's recommended that you always consult with a dentist before trying any over-the-counter teeth whitening system.

KöR Bleaching

The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System is a reliable and effective way to whiten your smile. KöR Whitening helps to restore the ability of your teeth to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deep into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules, and can lighten even the most stubborn coffee stains and discoloration. Combined with simple periodic home maintenance, you can keep your new, brighter smile without future office visits.

Nite White®

Nite White | Peninsula Smiles | Dentist Stanford, CA
Teeth whitening is by far the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. One option for whitening your teeth is a product called Nite White® from Discus Dental®. Nite White offers a long line of gentle, effective teeth whitening products for use at home.

As with any professional teeth whitening product, your dentist must first ensure that your teeth are healthy and free of cavities before you begin to use Nite White. Your dentist will make a custom fit appliance for you to wear while you sleep in tandem the with Nite White product.

How Will It Whiten?

Nite White's active ingredient is carbamide peroxide; this ingredient breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. This allows oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin (hard tissue of the tooth) to loosen tooth stains. The other active ingredient is ACP. Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) is a proven technology that "rebuilds enamel and aides in the prevention of dental caries." 

Nite White is a great option for people with all different types of sensitivity, tooth staining and even taste preference. It can be an amazing tool to capture that dazzling smile you desire.

Porcelain Veneers

Years ago, smile makeovers involved multiple dental treatments over a period of several months. That's no longer the case, thanks to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth. They require little to no prepping and can often be applied in just one dental visit!

Dental Implants

Dental Implants | Peninsula Smiles | Dentist Stanford, CA
Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. Made of titanium, dental implants are securely anchored into the jaw and serve as roots for dental crowns. In many cases, dental implants – and mini dental implants, the smaller version -- are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are also used to replace dental bridges or partial dentures, or to provide support for dentures. Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They look, feel and function just like real teeth! With dental implants, surrounding teeth are left untouched. Finally, dental implants are exceptionally reliable. Year after year, dental implants have had high success rates and typically last 15-20 years.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped teeth, stained teeth and gapped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. And it's fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.

Everyone's talking about Invisalign braces, and for good reason. Invisalign braces have completely transformed the way we think about and experience dental braces. With Invisalign braces, there's no worry about metal brackets and wires that are uncomfortable and unattractive.

You can eat what you want, drink what you want, and brush and floss more thoroughly to keep your dental health in top shape!

Clear Correct
