Who doesn’t want a smile worth a thousand words?

There are many reasons your smile might require a boost, including natural effects of aging, staining from particular foods and beverages, or smoking. If you’ve been thinking about whitening your teeth, there are many safe and effective ways to achieve a brighter smile at home or with the help of your dental provider.


Three of the top whitening solutions include:


  1. Over-the-counter whitening solutions
  2. At-home treatments provided by your dentist
  3. Bleach treatments that are administered in the dental office


The Journal of Evidence-Based Dental Practice suggests that tooth whitening is one of the most commonly requested dental services. It also maintains that the safest way to whiten your teeth involves consulting with a dental professional to find a treatment tailored to your specific needs.

While there are over the counter whitening methods, including bleach strips and whitening toothpaste, if you really want to enhance your smile and give yourself a boost of self-esteem, the best choice is seeking professional treatment. The Mayo Clinic suggests that whitening treatments administered in a dental office tend to be longer-lasting and are considerably more noticeable than over-the-counter and non-prescription solutions.  The team at Encino Dental Esthetics can help you determine the treatment that is right for you. With in-office whitening treatments, you can leave with a brighter and whiter smile the same day you come in, using Opalescence™ Boost™, a trusted professional-grade whitening gel. The at-home treatment includes whitening trays that are custom-fitted to you and will produce noticeably whiter teeth in a matter of weeks. The Encino Dental Esthetics team can help you decide if in-office whitening treatment should be paired with an at-home whitening kit to enhance and extend your results. Contact Encino Dental Esthetics to book your at-home or in-chair personalized whitening treatment today, for a smile worth a thousand words.
