Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most commonly requested procedures at Mark R. Paden DDS. Dr. Paden and our staff believes that Modesto patients should have smiles that they love to show off. While we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to makeover any smile, teeth whitening is the most popular because of the quick and noticeable results.
There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home without the need for supervision by a dentist. However, these over-the-counter products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional-grade treatments provided at Mark R. Paden DDS. Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to garner noticeable whitening.
At our Modesto office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Before the bleaching product is applied by Dr. Paden or a member of our dental staff, a protective gel is applied to the gums. Whitening procedures in our office often only take one hour and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.
After your professional whitening appointment, you may wish to purchase whitening products from our Modesto office. At Mark R. Paden DDS staff can recommend the appropriate product for you to use at regular intervals to keep your smile bright.
Call us today at 209-577-3429 to smile brighter.
