Sapphire Teeth Whitening
What is Sapphire teeth whitening offered by San Jose general and cosmetic dentistry by Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc.?
Sapphire is a teeth whitening process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
What causes discoloration of teeth?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During the formation of teeth, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from Sapphire Teeth Whitening?
Almost anyone. However, teeth whitening may not be as effective or some as it is for others. We can determine if you are a viable candidate for Sapphire Teeth Whitening through a thorough oral exam, including a teeth shade assessment.
Do many people whiten their teeth?
More people whiten their teeth than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The Sapphire Teeth Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is Sapphire Teeth Whitening safe?
Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist are safe. In fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any teeth whitening product, Sapphire Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
How long do the results last?
By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with Sapphire take-home gel.
These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and Sapphire Teeth Whitening?
Yes! Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpaste take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Sapphire is clinically proven to whiten your teeth nine to twelve shades in 45 minutes. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
How long does Sapphire In-Office Whitening take?
The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour. The teeth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 45 minutes of whitening. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Sapphire Teeth Whitening session.
