Teeth Whitening – Coronado, CA
Turn Back the Clock on Your Teeth
The color of your teeth may seem like a small detail, but it can actually have a significant impact on your appearance. Bright, white teeth are associated with a youthful, vibrant smile, whereas yellow, dull teeth can make you look older. If you have discolored teeth, Dr. Popp and Dr. Bailey can remove years’ worth of stains in a short period of time, customizing our whitening services to meet your needs.

Types of Tooth Stains
Discoloration on teeth can come from several sources. The main culprits are years of exposure to deeply pigmented foods and drinks, such as coffee, chocolate, tomato sauce, red wine, and more. However, sometimes stains result as a side effect of certain medications. Genetics can also contribute to the color of your teeth. To address these deep-set stains, you’ll need much stronger treatment than anything you’ll find in a store; you need powerful, professional-grade solutions.
If you have a wedding, reunion, interview, or other important event coming up and you want to look your best, our in-office treatment can give you results quickly. In fact, Opalescence whitening can brighten your smile by up to eight shades in just one hour! That’s far better than what you can achieve on your own with commercial whitening. This treatment is performed and supervised by our experienced team, so you’re sure to get the best possible results.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Some patients prefer the convenience that store-bought whitening treatments provide. That’s why we also offer Philips Zoom NiteWhite. Using custom trays specifically designed to fit your teeth, you apply the powerful whitening solution and wear the trays for two to four hours or overnight. The tray allows the solution to spread evenly over the teeth and whiten while you sleep. Over the course of about two weeks, your teeth should become just as white as with the in-office treatment, but you get to do it all from home.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Although you could use commercial whitening treatments, you will get at most two or three shades of improvement. In contrast, professional whitening, both in-office and take-home, can achieve a noticeable difference in whiteness without any extra effort.
Not only can teeth whitening help you have more confidence in your appearance for a special event in the immediate future, but the results can be simple to maintain. You just need to make sure you keep up your daily hygiene and visit our office at least every six months for cleanings. If you need extra help retaining your white smile a few years down the road, we’ll be here to provide the treatment you need for optimal results.
