Whitening

At Summerhills Dental Care in Citrus Heights, California, we feel that anyone who would like a whiter, younger looking smile should have the opportunity to get that smile at an affordable price. At our office you will be able to get whiter teeth for a fraction of the cost charged by most other offices in the greater Sacramento area.

Even if you think whitening is not possible for you, give it a try. Our modern whitening systems are highly effective at brightening stained teeth, discolored teeth or intrinsically yellowish teeth. Often times the results are dramatic and exciting for our patients.

Our dentists in Citrus Heights offer two, effective options for whitening teeth.

In Office “Power” Whitening

Chair side whitening is used for people who need whitening done in a hurry due to an upcoming event such a wedding or a high school reunion.  This method is also appropriate for people who cannot tolerate wearing the clear tray shown below. This accelerated, in office whitening can result in whiter teeth in just one office visit.

The in office experience resembles going to “tanning booth” for your teeth. Although results vary, most people will attain several shades of lightening in a single treatment of about an hour.

Take-home Tray Whitening

In some cases, we combine in office whitening with home whitening trays and gels.In this method, impressions are taken of your teeth. Our office fabricates a set of soft, pliable, clear plastic trays that precisely fit your teeth.  Bleaching gel is placed in the trays and worn at home or at work for several hours at a time for a period of 2-4 weeks. This method is comfortable and easy to use. The long contact time between the gel and the teeth makes this method successful for nearly all patients.  The results can be amazing!A note about over-the-counter products.

Undoubtedly, you have noticed an abundance of over the counter whitening products. Nearly all of these products are messy and uncomfortable. The poorly fitted trays cannot be worn for long periods and cause saliva to go into overdrive. As a result, the contact time with teeth is insufficient and the desired level of whitening is never achieved. Most of our whitening patients have tried these over-the-counter products and ended up coming to us for an effective and safe alternative.  

We recommend that you save your money on the over the counter options. If you’d like to try whitening, give us a call at 916-723-3368 and we’ll show you how easy and affordable it is to get a whiter, younger looking smile!
