Upland residents get teeth whitening regularly to look and feel amazing. As we age, it’s common for our teeth to dull and changes yellow. Part of this is due to our diet. Excessive coffee, tea, and wine drinking will stain teeth. Tobacco use and food colorings will also cause stains. Consistent brushing after eating and drinking will help slow down this staining process.
You no longer have to live with yellowing teeth. Residents in Upland can now enjoy the benefits of teeth whitening at our 5 Star dental office.

There are several teeth whitening methods currently out. Many of them help improve your smile and teeth color instantly. Some whitening procedures can be done at home and some at the office with just one visit. Teeth whitening can happen in two ways: take-home kits or chairside bleaching.
With take-home kits, one does the self bleaching themselves. The patient does this by following instructions from the dentist or inside the kit. Depending on the kit product, it may be a gel form, adhesive strip, or pen. However, over the counter home, whitening products have less potency. Meaning they won’t whiten your teeth as quick and as effective as in-office whitening.
In-office whitening is more complicated, thus the need to be chairside. These types of treatments use a laser lamp to boost the whitening action. This procedure also requires a rigorous isolation technique. Regardless of which method you pick, the bleaching action follows the same process. With enough exposure, your teeth will sparkle, and a brand new smile will appear.
Upland Teeth Whitening System by Dr. Zaveri
Your teeth consist of three tissues. They are the dentin, which is the inner layer, the cementum that covers the roots, and the enamel. The enamel tissue, comprised of hydroxyapatite, has pores. With the application of the whitening agent to the tooth, the pores open. This opening results in the solution penetrating the inner tissues.
Most whitening products make use of varying concentrations of hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. These components carry out an oxidizing process that will whiten and brighten teeth.
One of the components of teeth whitening solutions is to open the pores of the teeth. Making the whitening process happen, but it also renders the tooth more sensitive. With open pores, the tooth is more susceptible to everything. So prepare to feel some discomfort during this phase of treatment.
The sensitivity felt is not permanent and may resolve simply by taking an analgesic. Also, note that teeth sensitivity varies based on the whitening solution concentration. More powerful agents will be stronger and may cause increased sensitivity. That is why in-office solutions handling should be by trained dental professionals. Whitening agents can’t contact the delicate soft tissues at any time. If the agents do contact tissue, irritation, and damage will follow. For take-home kits, it’s essential to follow the instructions for avoiding an accident.
Another known feature of in-office whitening is the use of a whitening lamp. The laser light gives the teeth whitening procedure a boost. It results in a better and faster cosmetic result. The light activates the whitening agents, speeding up the work for instantaneous effects. This speed differentiates in-office treatments from take-home methods. Since take-home kits need constant exposure, often spanning to about two weeks. The exact exposure time depends on the results you desire.
Alta Dental Care will provide you with a take-home kit to ensure your new smile will never fade. Soft transparent trays are filled with whitening gel. These trays fit tightly over your teeth and are worn for the prescribed time.
The trays are worn during the night or day, and you should notice results within the first treatment.
For this treatment, we use Philips KoR products.
