Get whiter teeth with professional teeth whitening services

Livermore, California, area patients seeking teeth whitening treatments will want to work with a dentist who offers bleaching services. At Sycamore Family Dentistry, Dr. Lori Ross Tijerino and her team are excited to provide two whitening methods, including our in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening kits.

  • In-office power bleaching. Our in-house whitening solution uses a hydrogen peroxide gel that lifts stains from deep within the natural tooth enamel. This is done under the care and supervision of our dental team, ensuring both safety and effectiveness. We start with a full cleaning of the teeth before applying our whitening gel to the surfaces of the teeth. The gel is designed to brighten the smile quickly, often within one hour–allowing patients to leave the office with a brand new smile–and renewed self-confidence!
  • Take-home whitening kits. Alternatively, we provide take-home whitening kits with strong, professional-strength bleaching gels and custom whitening trays. Patients will use the gel within the trays and wear it as directed to gradually brighten their smiles in the comfort of their homes. Patients can whiten their teeth as needed to maintain the results.
  • Combination treatment. Some patients can benefit from both our in-office whitening services and take-home whitening kits. The initial whitening can be performed in the dentist’s chair and then continued whitening can be performed at home. The take-home whitening kit is also perfect for touchups, allowing patients to brighten their smiles as needed to keep their pearly whites bright and beautiful!

Am I a good candidate for professional teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening treatment is often determined based on the patient’s current smile and their unique oral health needs. Patients with restorations such as bridges, crowns, and veneers may not be viable candidates as these restorations will not respond to the whitening gels. Patients serious about whitening their smile will need to undergo whitening treatments and then replace these restorations to match their new smile.
