Teeth Whitening in Emeryville, California

If you are a regular tea or coffee drinker, you likely have stains on your teeth that are hard to treat at home. At Randhawa Dentistry, we offer professional teeth whitening services that are guaranteed to leave you with a brighter, whiter smile than at-home whitening alternatives. Speak with us today to learn about your options!

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Professional tooth whitening works by using a bleach formula to lighten the existing shade of your teeth. The whitening solution contains an active bleaching ingredient which breaks down stains upon application, whitening the color of your teeth. We can recommend whitening with the LumiBrite or Opalescence teeth bleaching systems. Dr. Randhawa will discuss the benefits of both options with you during your consultation and help you to decide which method will be best for you.

Lumibrite is a relatively new whitening option that promises safe and effective professional tooth whitening in as little as 30 minutes of in-office treatment. Lumibrite whitening can be used with or without light to aid in the whitening process. The gel contains a combination of a patented whitening gel, a desensitizer, and fluoride to leave your teeth sparkly white, strong and healthy.

Opalescence is another professional whitening product that can achieve results in as little as an hour of in-office treatment. The combination of potassium nitrate and fluoride in the gel helps to maintain the health of your enamel during the whitening process. It is a chemically activated treatment, which means that light is not required during treatment.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

There is a risk of some pain during the whitening procedure due to peroxide sensitivity. The active ingredient in whitening gels is hydrogen peroxide and some patients may have teeth that are sensitive to it. If so, you may start to feel discomfort during the whitening procedure. An increase in sensitivity to hot and cold is possible afterward, but this is usually a short-term condition. If you are concerned about discomfort, don’t hesitate to discuss this with your dentist prior to treatment.

Are There Any Risks Associated with Teeth Whitening?

When done by a qualified dentist, tooth whitening is a safe and effective procedure. The most common side effect that people experience is an increase in tooth sensitivity briefly following the procedure. Mild gum irritation has also been reported. But rest easy knowing that Dr. Randhawa was named a top-rated cosmetic dentist in the Bay area!

I damaged my two front teeth when I tripped jogging. I was very upset. When I went to see Dr. Randhawa he assured me he could make my teeth look the same as before the fall, and he did. The staff was very nice, and I would highly recommend this office for cosmetic dentistry.
