Why Do Teeth Discolor?

When your teeth first grow in, they’re a beautiful creamy white, but as you age, they gradually darken. It usually begins in your late twenties or early thirties. What causes your teeth to darken? Time, as usual, is white teeth enemy #1, but a variety of other factors can speed up the process.

  • Staining from drinking caffeine and red wine
  • Smoking
  • Genetic predispositions to premature yellowing
  • The onset of gum and tooth disease

All of these can gradually turn your teeth yellow, but with a professional whitening treatment at Top Down Dental in San Jose/Los Gatos, you can regain your white teeth.

Sapphire Whitening System in Los Gatos

Our dental office in Los Gatos is proud to offer the cutting-edge Sapphire Whitening System. The Sapphire Whitening System stands out with its advanced technology and remarkable effectiveness in brightening smiles.

How the Sapphire Whitening System Works

The Sapphire Whitening System utilizes a unique light-activated whitening process that significantly enhances the bleaching effect. Here’s how it works:

  1. Preparation: First, we apply a special lip treatment to protect your lips and gums, ensuring your comfort throughout the process.
  2. Application: A professional-grade whitening gel is carefully applied to your teeth. This gel is specially formulated to work in conjunction with the Sapphire light.
  3. Activation: The Sapphire light is then directed onto your teeth, activating the whitening gel. This process allows for deeper penetration of the whitening agents, effectively breaking up stains and discoloration.
  4. Completion: The session typically lasts about an hour, and you can expect immediate results.

Advantages of the Sapphire Whitening System

  • Fast and Efficient: The Sapphire Whitening System is designed for efficiency, offering significant whitening results in just one session.
  • Comfort and Safety: We prioritize your comfort and oral health. The Sapphire System is gentle on teeth and gums, minimizing sensitivity and discomfort.
  • Customized Treatment: Each treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs, ensuring optimal results while considering the natural shade of your teeth and any sensitivity issues.

Ideal for Special Occasions and Regular Maintenance

Whether you’re preparing for a special event or simply seeking a brighter smile, the Sapphire Whitening System is an excellent choice. Its effectiveness and speed are ideal for quick touch-ups or extensive whitening needs.

Why Go Pro?

There are many advantages to choosing professional tooth whitening treatments instead of home teeth whitening.

  • Professional tooth whitening treatments are very comfortable, safe, and effective. You might experience discomfort or pain with home teeth whitening if you have sensitive teeth and gums.  A dentist can make custom trays to hold the whitening agent, causing less irritation. At Top Down Dental in San Jose/Los Gatos, we apply desensitizers for people who have very sensitive teeth and gums.
  • Professional whitening is quick and noticeable.  If you are whitening your teeth for a wedding, graduation, or another special event, you’ll appreciate how fast you’ll get your white teeth.
  • The results are controllable.  Teeth whiteners only work on natural enamel.  Without the color control of a professional tooth whitening treatment, your natural teeth may look whiter than your crowns, white fillings, or implants.  A professional treatment will give you more consistent results.
