Many people feel that a white and even smile says a lot about them. Unfortunately, the natural processes of aging, dark food and drinks, or tobacco use can stain the teeth in your smile. This might leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your whitening options.

It’s always a good idea to consult with Dr. Rakhi Jani before starting a new whitening routine to ensure your health, and finding the best way for your particular smile.

Deeply stained teeth can rarely be improved by the whitening products offered in stores. Fortunately, Dr. Rakhi Jani can administer a professional tooth bleaching procedure to safely and effectively whiten your smile.

At the start of the tooth bleaching procedure Dr. Rakhi Jani will protect your gums with a special gel or a rubber dam. Then a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel is poured into trays that are inserted into your mouth. How long you need to hold the tray in place will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are. A special ultraviolet light might also be used for additional whitening.

If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, you should call Dr. Rakhi Jani at 925.344.5757 to schedule an appointment.
