Teeth Whitening & Bleaching

Teeth Whitening & Bleaching in Palo Alto

Want a whiter, brighter smile?

Nearly everyone in America wants to have white teeth that sparkle when they smile, but at the same time they carry on eating and drinking things that are known to stain their teeth. Coffee and red wine may be the most widely acknowledged offenders, but they are not the only ones. Other common foods and drinks that can rob your teeth of their whiteness include soda, sports drinks that contain food dye, certain types of sauces and berries. To make matters worse, many people simply don't brush their teeth often enough to keep them at their whitest.

Given the option of either purchasing an at-home tooth whitening kit from the grocery store and paying more to have a professional cosmetic dentist perform the procedure, it makes sense that you would choose the home kit, right? In truth, such products have only limited efficacy, since they typically contain between half and one-fifth of the bleach as compared with what an aesthetic dentist uses. Further, obtaining results with a do-it-yourself kit typically requires dedication and diligence in application, using the product every day for weeks on end. If you want whiter teeth and are serious about getting the best possible results in the least amount of time, come to Nidhi A Pai DMD, a recognized leader in the field of cosmetic dentistry in Palo Alto

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Having your teeth whitened can make you look younger, healthier and more physically attractive, and it can give you an enormous confidence boost. This can be especially important if you work in a profession which requires you to have face-to-face contact with customers, since it helps you create a better first impression with the people you are working with. Teeth whitening generally involves the application of peroxide-based bleaching agents, and may include the application of heat or light to intensify the effects of the bleach. Depending on the technique used and the existing shade of your teeth, it may be possible to complete the process in a single visit or perhaps it may require several visits.
