Hi, I’m Dr. Jon King, an experienced Santa Barbara general dentist serving the greater Santa Barbara area. One of the most common requests I get from my dental patients is whiter teeth.
I am happy to say that Santa Barbara dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening in California, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some Santa Barbara patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at Goleta, Montecito, and Santa Maria drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your Santa Barbara dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
There are many dentists in the Santa Barbara area that offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. Santa Barbara residents who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.
Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.
As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in Santa Barbara.
