Your smile is the first thing most people notice about you, and discoloration can have a serious impact on self-esteem. Dr. Terri Nguyen offers expert teeth whitening services for patients with a variety of needs and goals in the San Francisco area. She brings years of experience and knowledge to your consultation and can help you decide which of the many options available is right for you.
A wide range of daily activities can result in stained teeth, from drinking coffee or tea to smoking or chewing tobacco. Almost any food or beverage with strong coloring can result in visible stains that may not be removed by routine oral hygiene. Oral trauma can also result in permanent stains, as well as naturally occurring discoloration due to age. Whatever the cause, Dr. Nguyen can help you put together an effective treatment plan.
Teeth whitening treatments are more accessible than ever, with a wide range of take-home or over-the-counter products claiming whitening benefits that can be performed with relative ease. Unfortunately, these treatments contain abrasives that have the potential to damage enamel, and patients using at-home kits do not have the benefits of guidance from a team of experts. Results can be irregular and hard to predict.
However, Dr. Nguyen and the team at West Portal Family Dentistry are experts in safe, affordable procedures for whitening stained teeth. The West Portal team offers professional treatment for the full range of stains, whether caused by food/drink, trauma, or age. They use a combination approach, offering deep bleaching as well as safe, prescription take-home trays to get the best results from even the most sensitive teeth. Throughout the process, they will monitor the impact of your treatment, making sure there is no damage to enamel, making any necessary adjustments to treatment, and guiding you safely to the healthiest, brightest smile possible.
Every patient’s goals are different, and Dr. Nguyen works closely with each person to determine the best course of treatment for their desired look and feel. The treatments are closely monitored and tailored to the individual, a level of care that cannot be achieved by over-the-counter treatments.
