Welcome to the Marcos Ortega DDS dental blog, San Diego! Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening and beautiful smiles in San Diego. Our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but unfortunately, we see staining on young patients as well. San Diego area residents of all ages want whiter teeth, so shouldn’t they have them.
Protecting Your Smile
To protect our beautiful smiles in San Diego, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.
Information About Teeth Whitening
Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpaste can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Marcos Ortega DDS is your brilliant solution! If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. One issue patients have is that teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on their restorations and their whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Marcos Ortega DDS, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns, or bondings to match the appearance of beautiful smiles in San Diego. In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Marcos Ortega DDS and can produce fantastic results over time. For more information on getting a younger and brighter smile, contact our very comfortable and friendly team at 619-295-4545 for a tooth whitening consultation today! Marcos Ortega DDS provides general and cosmetic dentistry including dental implants, dental crowns, and sedation dentistry. Don’t forget to ask us about financing options.
