Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening, also called power bleaching, power whitening, professional whitening, laser or chairside whitening, is teeth whitening done in our office by one of our professionals.  This whitening is done in a safe and controlled environment and this method produces immediate, visible results.

The advantages of in-office teeth whitening with Dr. Soto The Downey Dentist include:

Produces immediate results –  Unlike at-home teeth whitening, this method produces visibly whiter teeth when you walk out the door. If you have a major event coming up or you don’t have the time to whiten your teeth yourself at home, the quick results produced by the in-office whitening will make this option best for you.

Is safer – In-office teeth whitening under the care and supervision of a dental professional makes this method of teeth whitening the safest. At-home teeth whitening involves multiple steps and directions. People in a hurry often skip steps and applications which can make the method less effective. Sometimes those who use the at-home teeth whitening over-use it, increasing the risk of damaging the enamel of their teeth. Only a dentist can apply the right amount of bleaching gel to make it safe, yet effective.

Is convenient – In-office teeth whitening only requires a few visits for adequate application. At-home teeth whitening, on the other hand, requires you to do daily applications over an extended period of time. The at-home method requires diligence, time and effort. These may not be appropriate for everyone. In-office whitening visits are quick and are 

done correctly because the procedure is performed by a professional who knows what he/she is doing.

Effectively removes common stains – With its concentrated, detailed process, in office teeth whitening can take away those natural stubborn tooth stains. These stains that can be removed include: stains associated with age, tobacco and foods such as coffee, sodas, red wine and dark-colored fruits and vegetables.
