If you work in a career field that calls for a significant amount of face to face interaction with clients and coworkers, then you know how important your appearance is. A bright smile can convey confidence and help give you an extra edge. If stains form on your teeth, your dull and unsightly smile can leave you looking for effective whitening options.

Rather than risk wasting your time and money on potentially ineffective whitening products sold in stores, we invite you to set up a whitening consultation with our dentist at Carolyn L. Yu, DDS in Pinole, California. Dr. Carolyn Yu has years of extensive training and experience to help you find the safest method for whitening your smile.

In many cases, the most effective whitening method is to have our dentist administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents we use can remove stains from deep within tooth enamel while also protecting your mouth from harm.

Dr. Carolyn Yu will start by applying a special protective gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the potent dental-grade bleach. She will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into special bleaching trays that will be inserted in your mouth.

The duration of the bleaching treatment will depend on the severity of the stains. Once the bleach has done its job, Dr. Carolyn Yu might also use a special ultraviolet light to eradicate spot stains, from small troubled areas.

If you live in the Pinole, California area and are struggling with a heavily stained smile, please call 510.974.2147 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at the dental office of Carolyn L. Yu, DDS. We look forward to helping you create a beautiful smile you can be proud of!
