Tooth whitening is one of the quickest, easiest, and most economical ways to refresh your smile.

Tooth whitening options
At Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions, we know that one size never fits all, so we offer different options to patients who are interested in tooth whitening treatments. We are always happy to discuss patients’ options with them, along with the pros and cons and cost, to help them determine the best course of action for their specific needs.
In-office bleaching is a great choice for patients who want rapid, dramatic results. During an in-office whitening treatment, we first place a retractor in your mouth to expose your teeth and then place a protective liquid on your gums to protect them during treatment. Then, we apply a high-powered bleaching agent to your teeth and focus a special type of LED light on your teeth, typically for 15 minutes at a time. We then repeat this process as needed within the same visit to achieve the results you want – typically, patients need about three 15-minute treatments. Afterwards, you walk out the door with an instantly transformed smile that is up to eight shades whiter!

For patients who prefer a more gradual, gentle approach, take-home whitening kits are often a good option. We take impressions of your mouth to create custom-fitted trays that are specially designed to keep the bleaching agent only on your teeth, which protects your gums. We provide you with a professional-grade bleaching agent to take home and will give you instructions on how frequently to use the whitening system. Some patients prefer to use it while they relax in the evening, while others may choose to wear them at night. The bleaching material we provide you will penetrate deep into your teeth to not only eliminate surface stains but also discolorations deeper in the teeth, for excellent results.
Whether you choose in-office or at-home bleaching, having custom-fitted trays to use at home for touch-ups over time can help keep your smile bright. If you enjoy deeply pigmented foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, wine, and tomato sauce, then we recommend doing maintenance treatments to lift any stains or discolorations that come back.
Why professional teeth whitening?
If you’ve perused the oral health care aisles at your local grocery store or pharmacy, you’ve undoubtedly seen the wide variety of over-the-counter tooth whitening options that are available nowadays. While they promise fast results at home, these options are inferior to professional tooth whitening in many ways. When you work with your dentist to whiten your teeth:
- It is more effective – at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions, we use a prescription strength peroxide formulation to quickly and effectively brighten your teeth—it goes deep into the tiny channels in the enamel to lift stains, and can even get your teeth brighter than their natural shade
- It is more comfortable – whether you choose in-office or at-home whitening, nothing beats the comfort of custom-made tooth whitening trays versus ill-fitting trays or strips that come in over-the-counter kits
- It is safer and healthier – with a professional-grade whitening solution that is applied by a professional or in custom-fitted trays that are designed to keep the whitening product only on your teeth and off of your sensitive gums and other soft tissues, your mouth stays healthy and you can avoid irritation or sores on your gums from the treatment
- Less sensitivity – if you experience tooth sensitivity as a result of the whitening treatment, a dentist can help you determine the best way to proceed with whitening and provide you with de-sensitizing products that can minimize your discomfort
