Studies show that roughly 18 percent of people do this because they’re embarrassed of the stains on their teeth.

Her method incorporates whitening trays and a prescription strength bleaching gel for you to use at home. After receiving professional care, she can provide you with natural whitening remedies, as well.
A pearly white smile increases your confidence, while also enhancing your appearance. Call 925-833-9500 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rassiwala in Dublin, CA to discuss how professional teeth whitening treatment will improve your life.
Teeth Whitening with Dublin Dentist
The decision to brighten your smile is one of the best ones you can make. The whitening trays that Dr. Rassiwala uses are custom-made from a dental impression taken at your initial dental visit. After fully examining your teeth, she will determine what’s causing your staining. Next she will take the impression of your teeth, to ensure your trays fit snugly against your teeth.
At your second appointment, Dublin dentist Dr. Rassiwala will prescribe a strong bleaching gel and send you home with your trays. She will instruct you to wear the trays every night for two weeks or for 30 minutes a day, depending on the condition of your stains.
You can expect to see results after receiving treatment just one time. The bleaching agent that we use is stronger than what’s in store-bought products; therefore, you’re guaranteed to see positive results with this cost-effective treatment.
The best way to whiten your teeth is through professional whitening treatment with Dr. Rassiwala. However, there are natural ways to brighten your smile, if you are hesitant to use peroxide-based whiteners.
These remedies have been shown to produce positive results and improve the health of your mouth in the process.
Brushing with Baking Soda
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is mildly abrasive, which effectively removes enamel stains that ruin your pearly white smile. This remedy is simple, just wet your toothbrush and dip the bristles into baking soda, then brush like normal. The powder whitens the appearance of your teeth and balances the pH levels in your mouth.
Coconut oil can be swished and pulled through your teeth each morning to remove stains. In this method, it’s important that the oil slides between each tooth. The lauric acid in coconut oil kills off bad bacteria found in plaque, which causes your teeth to appear yellow. Simply swish and pull the oil through your teeth for 10-15 minutes each morning, then rinse and brush as normal.
Brush After Eating and Drinking
Poor oral hygiene is a significant cause of discoloration. A beneficial way to naturally whiten your smile is to brush each time you eat or drink. Although this may sound easy, it can be rather time consuming. It takes dedication and persistence. It’s not always convenience, however it does produce positive results.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Many people are discovering the numerous benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV). It improves digestion, lower blood pressure, and has been linked with effective weight loss regiments. The vinegar whitens teeth by killing harmful bacteria, while promoting the growth of probiotic bacteria. The natural antibiotic is acidic; therefore it breaks down unwanted plaque that causes your teeth to appear yellow.
It’s beneficial for whitening smiles, as well as improving oral health. You can expect your results to resemble what your teeth would look like after receiving a professional dental cleaning with Dublin dentist Dr. Rassiwala.
The antioxidants found in these dark-colored berries have been associated with teeth whitening. If you’re looking for a chemical-free method, mashed up strawberries are a great remedy. Rub the berry mixture onto your teeth and rinse with water.
You won’t see instant results, as you will with professional teeth whitening with Dr. Rassiwala, however these natural remedies will brighten your smile so that it’s picture worthy.
