Teeth-Whitening in Cerritos CA

If teeth stains are increasingly affecting your smile’s appearance, then professional teeth-whitening could be the effective and convenient answer you’re looking for. To experience a more vibrant, youthful, and stain-free smile, speak with Dr. Hofkes and our team about teeth-whitening during your next visit.

What Is Teeth-Whitening?

Teeth-whitening is a topical, cosmetic treatment that involves placing a strong but safe bleaching agent onto the surfaces of your teeth. The bleaching gel gently breaks up the stains that have developed on the surfaces of your teeth, erasing them and making the tooth structure underneath the enamel brighter. The procedure is safe enough to significantly improve your smile’s appearance without causing any harm to your natural, healthy tooth enamel or tooth structure.

Do I Qualify for Teeth-Whitening?

Because teeth-whitening is safe and non-invasive, it’s appropriate for most patients of all ages who wish to enjoy a brighter smile. Before recommending it, however, Dr. Hofkes will perform a comprehensive examination to diagnose the nature of your teeth stains. In  some instances, whitening may not be your best option, such as:

  • When teeth are discolored underneath the enamel
  • When discoloration is the result of internal tooth damage
  • When the stains are signs of tooth decay
  • And more

If teeth-whitening isn’t your best option for your smile’s concerns, then Dr. Hofkes can recommend a more appropriate treatment, such as porcelain veneers. If you exhibit more than just teeth stains, then teeth-whitening may be just one of multiple treatments designed to create a complete smile makeover.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth-Whitening?

When teeth stains appear, the most significant impact they have is to your smile’s appearance, and therefore, your overall confidence. As a result, one of the biggest benefits of teeth-whitening is the restored confidence you gain in your smile. Other benefits include:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Professional-strength smile improvement
  • More successful results compared to OTC whiteners
  • And more
