When our patients visit Dr. Shahrokh for a professional whitening treatment at our Encinitas, California office, they always walk away “all smiles.” We are proud to be a certified GLO Science dental practice, offering multiple options to get your smile to that perfectly white shade you desire. Stubborn stains and discoloration will be effectively, safely, and comfortably removed to reveal a beautiful white smile. When you visit us at All Smiles Dental Studio, you can have whiter teeth in a single appointment or elect for a take-home solution.
The problem: Stains and discoloration
Your teeth are covered by enamel. While this protective covering is stronger than skeletal bone, the enamel is not impervious to damage. Enamel also contains pores which inevitably attract staining. A thin protein film, pellicle, forms on the surface of the teeth and contributes to the development of unsightly stains and discoloration. Additionally, some patients’ teeth are more vulnerable to staining than others; for instance, genetics contribute to the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Your diet is also a contributing factor.
Some of the most common reasons your teeth become yellow include:
- Smoking and using other tobacco-containing products
- Drinking black tea, dark and light sodas, white and red wine, and other acidic beverages
- Consuming staining foods, such as tomatoes, curries, and soy sauces
A good “rule of thumb”: If it stains your floor or shirt, it will likely stain your teeth!
The Solution: GLO Professional Teeth Whitening
Using GLO professional teeth whitening, we can lift existing stains and discoloration from teeth with unmatched success rates. Using GLO’s patented mouthpiece combination of warming heat, light technology, and concentrated whitening gel, Dr. Shahrokh can make a noticeable difference in the color of your teeth. Under the supervision of Dr. Shahrokh, teeth whitening performed using the GLO whitening treatment is completely safe and comfortable. Treatment can be customized to avoid tooth sensitivity and ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Whitening options include in-office and at-home whitening. When performed in-office, treatment lasts under 16 minutes. If you choose GLO’s at-home whitening option, you will be provided a mouthpiece that uses GLO’s patented technology and professional strength whitening gel to achieve the white smile you desire from the comfort of your home. You can use this on its own or to keep teeth white between in-office treatments. We also offer an on-the-go option via GLO vials. Simply brush it on your teeth, and GLO! You can use it on its own or as a refill for your at-home GLO mouth device.
When teeth whitening is achieved using professional solutions and under professional supervision, you can achieve a white smile safely and effectively. We can reveal or restore your teeth’s natural, vibrant, healthy-looking color.
