Whiten Your Teeth in Our Folsom Office
The naturally bright white teeth you had as a child may now be more of a yellow or brown color due to habits like drinking coffee and soda, smoking, eating dark-colored foods, or even taking certain medications. Dr. Borrowdale offers professional teeth whitening that lightens your teeth by several shades. It is far superior to any results you could obtain with a drugstore kit. We offer take home trays, as well as a one-day, in-office whitening procedure.
Whitening with take home trays is a two step process. Your first appointment involves taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth. These impressions are sent to our laboratory to make bleaching trays that are custom fit for your mouth. At the second appointment, the trays are delivered to you. You take them home and wear them as instructed with a gel application for 2 or more hours per day. Approximately one to two weeks after you start wearing the trays, you will see a considerable difference in the brightness of your teeth. This is due to the action of the peroxide in the whitening gel. Darker or grayer teeth can take longer to lighten.
Dr. Borrowdale also offers ZOOM whitening, which is done in-office. In a single appointment which lasts approximately 90 minutes, professional strength whitening gel is applied to the teeth under the supervision of a dentist. You sit under a light, which activates the whitening power of the gel. In the same appointment, impressions are taken and trays are made for continued or touch-up whitening. This is a great choice for those who want immediate results.
