We use GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening Kit, which provides both speedy in-office whitening procedure within one hour and a take-home touch-up kit ready to use at home.

Let us help you get the smile you desire in just one visit.

  • Step 1

    We’ll make sure your teeth and gums are healthy before treatment, and then check the current shade and plan how white to go. The teeth are cleaned and prepped to remove any plaque.

  • Step 2

    After cleaning, the teeth are kept dry, and we may use a retractor to keep the lips and tongue out of the way. We also apply a gel or shield to protect the gums.

  • Step 3

    The front of your teeth is covered with a whitening solution, and light activates the whitening process. We closely time and monitor your progress until the agreed-upon shade is reached. Then we rinse and may apply fluoride for tooth sensitivity.

You will receive a bonus touch-up whitening kit to take home for self-maintenance as needed.

  • Why are my teeth so yellow even though I brush them?

    Most natural teeth have different levels of yellowish, which can be affected by the food you eat, the liquid you drink, age and your lifestyle, including dental hygiene and smoking.

    Some factors are under our control, while others, like aging, are not. Teeth naturally change color as we age, partly because of enamel wear. This can cause teeth to appear gray or yellower in color.

    If you brush your teeth daily and use an FDA-approved toothpaste but are still concerned about the color of your teeth, then please contact us in Albany, CA to discuss your concerns and whitening options.
