Encinitas, Carlsbad, and San Diego
Bright, white teeth look clean and healthy. Teeth whitening makes minor flaws less noticeable and can even make you appear younger. Dull or stained teeth can send the subconscious message of poor hygiene, bad health, or advanced age. Everyone’s teeth lose some of their luster over the years, no matter how well you care for them. Most of us experience further discoloration due to the things we eat and drink. For some people discoloration can start in childhood caused by medications or excessive fluoride consumption. Dr. Walsh-Cole offers several teeth whitening options to fit your lifestyle and your needs. She can even attack deep tetracycline staining in resistant teeth.
Zoom! tooth whitening is an in-office treatment that can produce instant results in one visit and can lighten your teeth up to ten shades. Zoom! treatments include a take-home kit that you can use for touch-ups later. This type of in-office treatment is fast and effective if you have staining or dullness caused by age, foods and beverages, or smoking.
KoR Deep Bleaching
Using KoR Deep Bleaching, Dr. Walsh-Cole can accomplish what used to be believed to be impossible. The deep dark stains inside of your teeth caused by tetracycline can be removed. This is an amazing breakthrough in teeth whitening. Very dark stained teeth can be whiter and brighter than ever before.
KoR Deep Bleaching takes longer than Zoom! and requires more participation on your part. You will need to come in for two office visits and wear trays while you sleep, between these visits. For those dedicated to getting their teeth as white and bright as they can be, and for those who have not been able to use whitening in the past due to deep staining or sensitivity, it is well worth the effort.
Dr. Walsh-Cole also offers take-home whitening kits for your convenience. These kits allow you to whiten your teeth gradually.
Take-home whitening kits are very different from the over-the-counter whitening products you can buy at the store. Dr. Walsh-Cole will design custom trays for a perfect fit and even whitening. The gel she provides is much more effective than an over-the-counter gel, and you decide how white you want your teeth to be.
