Every smile looks more beautiful and healthy when teeth are sparkling white. However, common habits such as drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine, or smoking, can often stain or discolor the enamel on our teeth. Dr. Cathy Santone offers two teeth whitening options to brighten any smile with safe, effective bleaching methods: BriteSmile® for in-office teeth whitening, and custom bleaching trays.
Contact us today for more information on BriteSmile® teeth whitening options at our Solana Beach and San Diego-area practice.
BriteSmile® Whitening System
According to a study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, the Britesmile® Whitening System is safe and effective, and provides results up to fourteen shades brighter that can last for years. The BriteSmile® procedure does not employ heat or lasers, and the gel only contains 15% hydrogen peroxide, which means patients have increased comfort.
With BriteSmile®, Dr. Santone’s cosmetic dentistry patients are able to sit back and relax as her team oversees the in-office teeth whitening procedure, which can be completed in one office visit. After applying whitening gel to the teeth, Dr. Santone uses the BriteSmile® patented blue light to activate the gel for 20 minutes. Following two more 20 minute sessions under the BriteSmile® light, Dr. Santone’s patients will leave her office with a brighter smile and their own before-and-after photos, allowing them to make their own comparisons and show off the BriteSmile® teeth whitening results.

Take Home Teeth Whitening
Dr. Santone offers her cosmetic dentistry patients desiring a take-home method of teeth whitening: custom bleaching trays provide a convenient way for our patients to brighten their smiles at home or on the way to work; and over-the-counter bleaching strips provide a quick, simple, and effective take home whitening option that is 84% stronger than over-the-counter strips. Utilizing either take home bleaching system is a safe, effective way to restore your glistening smile on your own schedule.
