Hi, I’m Dr. Jeff Gray, an experienced La Mesa general and cosmetic dentist serving the greater San Diego area. One of the most common requests I get from my dental patients is whiter teeth.
I am happy to say that La Mesa dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening in California, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some La Mesa patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at San Diego, La Mesa, and San Diego drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your La Mesa dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
At Jeff Gray DDS, we offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. San Diego residents who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.
Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.
As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in San Diego.
If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Jeff Gray DDS at 619-337-7700. Our friendly and professional staff will schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation at your convenience.
We hope to hear from you soon!
