Whether you're just looking to brighten up your smile a bit or need to correct years of staining, Pacific Heights Dental can help you with teeth whitening in San Francisco.
We recommend bleaching for most of our patients seeking whiter teeth. This procedure is convenient since most of the whitening process takes place in your home. Professional bleaching offers several shades of brightness beyond over the counter methods.
Typically, you'll need to visit our Fillmore District dentist office twice. On the first visit, your dentist will take a series of molds of your mouth. These will be used to create your custom whitening trays.
On your second visit, you will test the fit and comfort of your new trays. Your dentist will make any needed adjustments, and then instruct you on the rest of the process.
Once home, you will fill the trays with your specially prepared solution. Depending on your whitening plan, you may need to wear the trays twice a day for 30 minutes, or overnight. You may experience some tooth sensitivity during this process. This sensation is normal. Call us if there is an unusual amount of pain or redness.
“Dr. Kuhn is the most professional, interesting, and caring doctor I have ever met. If you are shopping for a dentist - Tom is the one. Shop no more. ”
Once you complete the regimen, you are ready to reveal your restored smile. Our San Francisco teeth whitening patients agree - the results are amazing.
Keep in mind that your whitening is not permanent, and you may need to visit our office in every few years for touch-ups. Avoid common stain-causing substances like coffee, wine, and tobacco to maintain your whiter teeth. Of course, good oral hygiene habits, including regular check-ups with your dentist at Pacific Heights Dental, will keep your smile shining for years to come.
