Teeth Whitening

It’s quite common for your teeth to lose a bit of their sparkle over time, and for some people, it can cause them to feel self-conscious about their smile. Foods that you eat and beverages that you drink can stain or discolor your teeth over time, and even lifestyle choices like smoking or tobacco use can cause a dull smile or yellowed teeth.

The good news is that Dr. Godinez and his team offer an effective and affordable solution for you to professionally whiten your teeth with a take-home whitening system. Teeth whitening in Encinitas has never been easier, and better yet, you’ll be able to brighten your smile in the future any time you like with customized bleaching trays.

How Take-Home Teeth Whitening in Encinitas Brightens Your Smile

When you choose a take-home tooth bleaching kit from our Encinitas dental office, you receive a lot of benefits for your smile.

First, we’ll make you customized trays that are designed just for your smile by using impressions we make of your teeth. Customized trays offer a better fit and reduce the chances of excess bleaching gel escaping and touching your gums and causing discomfort.

Next, we’ll send you home with high strength whitening gel and specific instructions for how to safely apply it to your trays. Then you’ll be able to whiten your teeth at home on a schedule that’s convenient for you.

Finally, we sell whitening gel at our dental office so you can purchase additional tubes whenever you’d like to touch-up your smile in the future. That means your smile will be picture perfect for the next wedding, reunion, or vacation.

Maintaining Your Bright Smile

When you invest money and time in enhancing your smile, you want to keep it looking as bright as possible for as long as you can. You can do this by visiting Dr. Godinez regularly for checkups and cleanings that will help remove plaque and staining from your teeth.

You should also be aware of some of the foods and drinks that stain your teeth, such as:

  • Dark berries like blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
  • Soy sauce
  • Curries
  • Red wine
  • Coffee and black tea
  • Marinara sauce
  • Dark colas and sports drinks

You don’t have to completely eliminate these items from your diet; however, being aware of them will help you to remember to brush your teeth or rinse your mouth after consuming them.
