The Benefits of Cosmetic Treatments at Scripps Rock Dental

First and foremost, getting cosmetic dentistry in San Diego from Scripps Rock Dental helps you feel better about your appearance and boosts your self-confidence. You won’t have to hide your teeth any longer, and you can feel proud of your smile.

In addition, cosmetic dentistry makes you look younger, since you can reverse tooth imperfections and yellowing, which are associated with advanced age. In some cases, cosmetic treatments can even help improve your overall oral health. For example, a straighter and more even smile is easier to clean, which reduces your risk of gum disease and cavities.

Understanding Teeth Whitening

How It Works

While lots of different teeth whitening products exist, they all use the same basic ingredients, which are called peroxides. The volatile oxygen molecules in peroxides react strongly to the presence of stains on the teeth, and bleach them away, restoring the brightness of your enamel. This process is fast and non-invasive, which is why teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in America. Have questions about our whitening treatments?

Professional Take-Home Whitening

This involves coming to our office to get a set of reusable, custom-fitted whitening trays. This process takes only a few minutes, and you’ll come back in a few weeks to pick up your trays, whiteners, and instructions. Then, you can whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home and enjoy professional-grade results on your schedule.

In-Office Whitening

In-office whitening is faster than take-home whitening, so it’s a good option for special occasions. You’ll simply come into our office, and Dr. Gupta or Dr. Tony will clean your teeth, protect your gums, and apply powerful whitening products to your teeth. Then, they will use a UV light to excite the whitener. This process may be repeated several times to reach your desired level of brightness.

Avoid Over-the-Counter Whitening

We don’t usually recommend using over-the-counter (OTC) whiteners. They do not offer as effective results as professional whitening, and if you use them improperly, you could end up damaging your teeth. To protect your oral health, it’s important to have your teeth whitened by a professional.
