Creating confident smiles

The patient was concerned with the color of his teeth after he had fractured them many years ago. One tooth had a history of root canal and had turned dark over the years. The patient did not want a full cosmetic makeover just a slightly better smile treated as conservatively as possible. 

At home KOR bleaching along with conservative internal bleaching of the root canal treated tooth were completed first to set the palette for the conservative composite bondings. The patient was ecstatic with the results. We created a smile that exceeded his expectations and stayed within his budget.

Types Of Teeth Whitening

At-Home & In-Office

We offer both at-home teeth whitening kits and in-office whitening services at our office.

If you choose at-home teeth whitening, you’ll come in for a quick appointment at Del Mar Dental Studio. Dr. Pizzi will use dental putty to take molds of your teeth. Then, these will be used to create a set of custom whitening trays, which you’ll pick up in a few weeks along with a set of whitening products. Then, you’ll follow Dr. Pizzi’s instructions to whiten your teeth at home, and get a more beautiful smile! 

In-office whitening is done by Dr. Pizzi and the team at Del Mar Dental Studio, and offers faster results. You’ll come into our office, and we’ll clean your teeth, protect your gums and apply a whitening product directly to your teeth. In just 1-2 hours, you can get a smile that’s 5-10 shades brighter.

The Benefits Of

At-Home Whitening

At-home whitening is usually less expensive than in-office whitening. It also offers more subtle results, since your teeth will be whitened more gradually, compared to in-office whitening. You’ll also spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and can whiten your teeth on your own schedule.

Finally, your high-quality at-home whitening trays are reusable, so you will be able to save some money if you need to re-whiten your teeth or touch them up in the future.

The Benefits Of

In-Office Whitening

Though they provide the same results, in-office whitening is much faster than at-home whitening. While it usually takes about 2-3 weeks for at-home whitening to provide you with a brighter smile, in-office whitening can provide the same results in just 1 or 2 appointments.

For this reason, it’s a much better choice if you need your teeth to be whitened quickly for a special occasion like a wedding, a photo shoot, a business presentation, or another such event. 

How Long Does

Teeth Whitening Last?

In most cases, you can expect your whitened teeth to stay bright and beautiful for at least 1-2 years.

However, you can extend the lifespan of your smile by taking a few simple steps, such as cutting back on your intake of coffee, tea, or wine or drinking these beverages with a straw, brushing and flossing regularly, seeing the team at Del Mar Dental Studio for an appointment every six months, using a whitening toothpaste, and avoiding the use of tobacco products.

How Much Does

Teeth Whitening Cost?

Teeth whitening is one of the most inexpensive and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments. However, the cost of teeth whitening can vary depending on the extent of your staining, the method of whitening (in-office or at-home) that you choose, and a few other factors. To get an estimate for the cost of your teeth whitening treatment, we recommend scheduling an appointment at Del Mar Dental Studio.
