Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest ways to enhance your smile. This popular procedure is a fast, relatively inexpensive way to improve your appearance and boost your confidence. There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available today. However, professional teeth whitening provided by Mountain View, CA, dentist Patrick F. McEvoy will ensure the best results, and reduce any chance of complications. We offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments to suit anyone who wants to enjoy a more dazzling smile. To find out more about your teeth whitening options, contact us today.

Who is a Candidate?

Whitening your teeth is a safe and non-invasive procedure, and most patients who would like to have whiter teeth are candidates for either in-office or at-home whitening. If, however, you have any oral health conditions such as gum disease or tooth decay, these will need to be addressed prior to whitening your teeth.

During your initial consultation, Dr. McEvoy will discuss any restorative treatments or general dentistry procedures you may need. If you have deep, intrinsic stains on your teeth, a whitening treatment may not be strong enough. In these cases, Dr. McEvoy may recommend a different cosmetic treatment, such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns.

In-office Whitening

The quickest way to brighter, whiter teeth is through an in-office whitening treatment. We offer the Sinsational Smile® system, which only takes about 20 minutes. Before your in-office treatment begins, you will receive a regular dental cleaning to remove plaque and debris from your teeth. Next, silicone trays that have been pre-filled with whitening solution will be placed on your upper and lower teeth. The trays are comfortable, and you will be able to relax during your procedure.

LED light will be used to activate the gel, which whitens your teeth at a faster rate. Once your treatment is complete, the gel will be cleaned from your teeth. Most patients notice a significant improvement after one session, but you may want to complete more than one treatment to achieve your level of desired whiteness.

Dr. McEvoy is proud to offer the latest dental technology and possesses an uncompromising commitment to both the beauty and health of your smile.

You can schedule whitening treatments on a routine basis, to maintain your results and periodically renew your smile. With Sinsational Smile®, we will provide you with a whitening pen that you can take home and use after your procedure, to extend your brighter smile.

At-home Whitening

If you choose at-home whitening, Dr. McEvoy will create a set of custom bleaching trays for you. Since impressions of your teeth are taken for an exact fit, the trays fit and function better than the commercial kits you may find in drug stores.

The custom trays are also better at keeping the gel in the trays, to avoid getting gel on your gums, which can cause irritation. As with in-office whitening, you will receive a regular dental cleaning prior to treatment.

To use the at-home kit, you simply fill the trays with gel and wear them for a prescribed duration. Most patients achieve the shade of whiteness they want in two weeks. Afterward, you can use your custom kit to touch up your smile whenever you like.

Benefits of Professional Whitening

The teeth whitening and bleaching kits available for purchase in stores may be tempting, as they seem to be a simple and economical way to brighten your smile. However, the attention and professional methods that Dr. McEvoy provides is worthwhile, to ensure a safe, effective, and complication-free whitening treatment. Professional teeth whitening offers a variety of benefits:    

  • Cost-effective way to dramatically improve your smile
  • Can help you appear younger
  • Does not require a large investment of your time
  • Natural-looking
  • Advanced methods offer reduced tooth sensitivity
