Teeth Whitening

The cosmetic dental treatment known as ‘whitening’, or bleaching, is used to whiten the tooth enamel. Pigmentation, tea, age, coffee, tobacco, red wine or medications such as tetracycline are just some of the causes of discolored or stained teeth.

The bleaching process uses a peroxide gel added to a mouth guard-like tray to ensure direct contact with the tooth surface.

What are my teeth whitening options?

Tooth whitening can be done in-office or at-home using a whitening kit. Our office offers both solutions.

Your dentist will recommend the appropriate solution for you depending on the types of discoloration and staining you are experiencing. For example, if you have darkly stained teeth caused by tetracycline, an in-office deep bleaching treatment may be recommended.

In-Office Whitening

For patients with tooth stains caused by medications like tetracycline, the best solution may be in-office deep bleaching.

Before the dentist applies the whitening gel, a protective cream is applied over the gums and other soft tissues. Once the gel is applied to the patient’s teeth, a laser can be used to accelerate the whitening process.

In-office bleaching may require more than one visit to complete.

At-Home Whitening

Your dentist may recommend an at-home teeth whitening kit. Depending on the desired results, at-home whitening can take 10-15 treatments but is more cost effective than in-office bleaching.

An at-home whitening kit uses a 10% carbamide peroxide solution and a custom made mouth guard so the solution stays in contact with the enamel of your teeth.

Once the desired results have been achieved, you may want to do a ‘touch-up’ once or twice a year to maintain your beautiful smile!

Our Happy Customers

"What can I say about Dr. Sprague, he is simply THE BEST dentist in the Northern Hemisphere!!!!!!!!!!! What other dentist do you know of that can do a Root Canal and Crown within 1.5 hours on the same visit (Instead of going back 2-3 times)? His prices are reasonable and his work is absolutely flawless! He has even fixed crap dental work from two previous root canals done by two bad dentist. I really cant say enough about Doc Sprague! I love this guy and dont actually mind going to the dentist anymore (Outside of the cost of course). I am moving to Nevada in September, and will actually be coming back to Southern CA just to have him do my major dental work, that's how good he is! Thank you Dr. Sprague!!!!!!!"

"Dr. Sprague is an amazing dentist. He is extremely caring and his biggest concern is his patients and their needs. He met me at his office after hours to replace a crown. His pricing is very fair and he is truly a genuine caring physician. I would honestly recommend him to care for anyone's dental needs."
