Summer is here and with it comes a long list of activities that typically occur during the best weather. We go to parties, graduations, weddings, reunions, vacations, concerts and so much more. It may feel like you are constantly saying “cheese” to the camera and showing your smile, and that is why you may want to whiten your smile for the summer. At Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA, we offer professional level teeth whitening options and encourage you to read on and find out what you can do to brighten your grin right away.

Tooth Whitening and Cosmetic Dentistry

As a preferred cosmetic dentist in Stockton, we offer an array of cosmetic dentistry solutions. One of the most popular is tooth whitening. Our skilled cosmetic dentist can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single visit, and the results can last throughout the rest of the season and beyond.

The first step is to meet with our tooth whitening specialist to discuss your needs and preferences. Before we whiten your smile, we ensure that you have good oral health. We do an exam and cleaning and will address any issues such as cavities or signs of gum disease, and then we’ll begin to whiten your smile.

We can do it right in the office and you can leave with a smile that is several shades brighter. This is true even if you smoke, drink or eat staining foods or have some staining already on the teeth. However, we will discuss what led to the need to professionally whiten your smile and help you make some lifestyle changes that can prolong the results of treatment.

We can also make custom trays for you to use at home. You can periodically touch up the whitening and maintain that ultra-bright smile for many months afterward.

If you have some worries about issues like pain or discomfort during treatment, let us reassure you that modern and professional whitening causes no pain at all. This is an issue that was a problem many years ago when compounds had yet to be refined and special technologies were not yet available. Today, our patients enjoy comfortable and fast treatments. If you do have sensitive teeth, we may give you a desensitizing paste to use instead of your normal toothpaste as whitening can cause sensitivity to increase for a few days afterward.
