Teeth Whitening


If you are dissatisfied with the brightness of your smile, you are not alone. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common cosmetic procedures we perform here at Sharokina Eshaghi, DMD. This is because professional whitening treatment is safer and more effective than store-bought alternatives. You, too, can experience the wonderful benefits of in-office whitening treatment!

How Your Teeth Stain


There are two types of staining: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic stains occur when the inner structure of the tooth, called dentin, darkens or yellows over time. Often, this type of stain is the result of excessive fluoride exposure as a child, tetracycline antibiotics, or facial trauma. Unfortunately, intrinsic stains do not respond to whitening or bleaching solution.

Extrinsic stains, on the other hand, are the result of pigment-heavy foods and beverages, such as tea, coffee, and wine. Tobacco use is also a big contributor to extrinsic stains. The outer layer of our teeth, the enamel, is porous and picks up these types of stains as we age. During your initial appointment, Sharokina Eshaghi, DMD will be able to determine if your stains qualify for a professional whitening treatment.

In-Office Whitening


EPIC BIOLASE LASER WHITENING


Before we begin treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to fabricate custom bleaching trays for you to use at home. We will also take photographs of your teeth to establish a baseline and monitor your progress. By the end of your treatment, your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter than your baseline! Tooth sensitivity during the bleaching process is decreased by using the laser.

During your appointment, we first place a material over your gums to protect them during the whitening process. Next, we apply a high-concentration bleaching gel directly to the surfaces of your teeth. The gel is left on the teeth for about 10 minutes. We activate the gel by using the Epic Biolase Laser Handpiece. Once your time is up, we may reapply a new coat of bleaching gel. This process is repeated until we achieve the desired results. Total treatment time is approximately 1 hour.

Treatment includes:
•  Biolase chairside whitening kit
•  Custom bleaching trays
•  Lip Balm
•  Opalescence 20% patient Kit (8 syringes, case and toothpaste)




VENUS WHITENTING


Before we begin treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to fabricate custom bleaching trays for you to use at home. We will also take photographs of your teeth to establish a baseline and monitor your progress. By the end of your treatment, your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter than your baseline! Whitening treatment may lead to tooth sensitivity. For this reason, we may ask that your brush with a desensitizing toothpaste in the days or weeks following your appointment.

During your appointment, we first place a material over your gums to protect them during the whitening process. Next, we apply a high-concentration bleaching gel directly to the surfaces of your teeth. The gel is usually left on the teeth for about 20 to 30 minutes. Once your time is up, we may reapply a new coat of bleaching gel. This process is repeated until we achieve the desired results. Total treatment time is approximately 1 ½ hours.

Treatment includes:
•  Venus chairside whitening kit
•  Custom bleach trays
•  Venus Lip Balm
•  Venus 38% patient kit (3 syringes with case)




At-Home Whitening


This involves the use of milder whitening gel and a bleaching tray. We will take an impression of your teeth to ensure your tray is custom-fit to your mouth. A custom-fit tray provides more effective results than a stock or boil-and-bite tray.

Although the gel may be milder than the high-concentration solution we offer, it will still be stronger than store-bought products. Many people try whitening toothpaste, strips, rinses, and gels before they move forward with in office treatment. Many people also find that these store-bought alternatives do not provide satisfactory results.

Treatment includes:
•  Custom bleach trays
•  Opalescence patient kit (8 syringes, case and toothpaste)
