Transcript: Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of your smile. This treatment erases yellowing and discoloration from the surface of your enamel with a simple two-week application. The color change is accomplished by free elemental oxygen – which oxidizes the stain, thus permanently removing it. At Desert Smiles, we provide a take-home teeth whitening kit, which includes the whitening gel and a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth. You wear the tray daily, for several hours at a time, in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Some people prefer to do it at night. When you visit our practice in Glendale, Dr. Donald Wilcox will be able to learn more about your dental history. He can then make customized recommendations for your smile and provide oral hygiene tips based on your unique dental health, which will help you prevent stains and other problems.
