Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.
We provide REMBRANDT Sapphire® in-office teeth whitening and at-home teeth whitening kits at our office located in Sacramento. Teeth whitening can dramatically improve the appearance of a smile and is perhaps the most cost-effective cosmetic dentistry procedure available.
REMBRANDT Sapphire® In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening, produces a significant color change in your teeth - an average of eight to ten shades - in an hour.
The teeth whitening procedure is easily performed. Dr. Agnes Yumiaco will clean your teeth and then apply the REMBRANDT® whitening gel. The hydrogen peroxide-based gel is then exposed to a special light (known as the REMBRANDT Sapphire®) that causes oxygen to be released from the gel, making your teeth whiter. Teeth whitening is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your smile as the results are not only dramatic, but also long-lasting.
REMBRANDT Sapphire® teeth whitening takes only an hour to complete, so it can easily fit into busy schedules. Contact our office for more information or to schedule an appointment with leading cosmetic dentist Dr. Yumiaco
At-Home Teeth Whitening
REMBRANDT Sapphire® in-office teeth whitening is not the only way to make your teeth lighter. At-home teeth whitening products, available at our Sacramento practice, offer dental-strength whitening gel combined with the convenience of whitening your teeth in the comfort of your own home. The main difference between in-office teeth whitening and at-home teeth whitening is that it takes longer to achieve the desired results with at-home systems; in most cases, you can expect your teeth to become whiter over the course of several days or weeks instead of hours. We find that some patients prefer this gradual change, as the end result remains the same: a brighter, more dazzling smile.
It's best to consult Dr. Yumiaco to understand which whitening option is best for you.
