Take one stroll down the dental hygiene aisle at your local pharmacy and you’ll soon realize that there is no shortage of interest in the teeth whitening industry. Many of our patients at Sierra Gate Family Dental in Roseville, CA inquire about the best way to get a brighter smile. If you are looking to truly eliminate stains and whiten your teeth, your best bet is professional solutions from your dentist. Below, we’ll take a look at the professional teeth whitening process and how we can help you to get what you want and put the sparkle back in your smile.


Before we discuss whitening your teeth, it’s helpful to understand what causes dental discoloration. Some of the most common causes include:

  • The pigments in dark foods and beverages (coffee, tea, red wine, red pasta sauce)
  • The aging process naturally causes wearing to the enamel, revealing the yellow-colored dentin underneath
  • Genetics can contribute to darker teeth
  • Tetracycline medications at a young age can cause dark/stained teeth
  • Smoking and tobacco use can cause teeth to yellow and darken over time

Many patients come to us about professional teeth whitening after already trying a store-bought solution that produced lackluster results. Professional teeth whitening will give you the best results in a safe manner. The benefits of professional teeth whitening include:

  • Personalized treatment plans
  • Safe and effective treatment monitored by a dentist

If the cause of staining cannot be treated by teeth whitening, the dentist can recommend effective alternatives.

While considering the advantages and disadvantages of professional vs. store-bought whitening options, you ought to consider what you are attempting to achieve. If your smile has been white your whole life and just recently is starting to yellow, an over-the-counter whitening kit might produce temporary results. If your teeth have deeper discoloration, you may be an ideal candidate for professional-grade teeth whitening at Sierra Gate Family Dental. If you would like home touch-ups, Dr. Keshtkar may offer take-home customized trays that are compatible with our whitening solutions for maintenance.

In-office whitening is the fastest way to brighten your smile, giving you results in just a single visit in 20 minutes. We Use Sinsational Smile fast and effective technology with patented pre-filled silicon trays. This allows the jaw to remain relaxed and the patient comfortable throughout the treatment. This procedure includes the use of an LED accelerating light that helps to activate the gel’s whitening ingredients at a faster rate, resulting in a brighter smile and whiter teeth in less time. As part of your procedure, you will receive a take-home maintenance pen to further extend your new brighter smile and enjoy the benefits of at-home bleaching as well. If you are interested in our in-office whitening program make sure to check our in-office whitening offers to take advantage of current specials.

Types of Professional Teeth Whitening

When opting for professional teeth whitening, patients can choose from two options: in-office and at-home teeth whitening. During your consultation, we’ll explain the process for both so you can choose the option that works best for you.

After teeth whitening treatment, you might experience sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages, but this should subside within a couple days. Just like all dental procedures, routine dental examinations with Dr. Ardy Keshtkar are highly recommended and imperative to maintaining results. These exams will assess the entire mouth from gum and soft tissue health and the condition of each tooth. Once the main procedure is completed, we usually advise coming back for touch-ups a couple times a year, along with twice yearly cleanings that will help your dental health. Bear in mind that just because your teeth are white does not necessarily mean that they are healthy. That is why routine examinations are needed. You'll also be provided specific instructions regarding what food should and shouldn't be consumed immediately, including red wine and coffee.

Sierra Gate Family Dental At-Home Lifetime Whitening Program

Dr. Ardy’s goal is to ensure that our patients have a smile they can be proud of. We are excited to offer our patients “LIFETIME WHITENING” for only $99.

Once enrolled in our program, you will be fitted with custom whitening trays and receive a starter kit that includes four whitening syringes and a storage case for your trays ($325 value). At each of your regularly scheduled hygiene appointments (minimum of two hygiene visits per year), we will provide you with 1 – 2 “complimentary” refill syringes of the whitening gel (maximum of four syringes per year). This ensures that you will be able to keep your smile white and beautiful all year long and for life!

Your long-term dental health is as important to us as it is to you, and continuing with your recommended hygiene visits is a critical part of that. That is why we are happy to provide “Lifetime Whitening” to our patients. In order for Sierra Gate Family Dental to provide you and your family with exceptional services like “Lifetime Whitening,” we ask that you give us the courtesy of a 48 business hour notice to cancel or reschedule any appointments. If any hygiene appointments are canceled or rescheduled without the required 48 business hour notice, you will no longer be eligible to receive your “complimentary” whitening syringes at future hygiene visits. Sierra Gate Family Dental is delighted to help you with your dental needs and looks forward to seeing your white and beautiful smile for years to come!

About Us
How many treatments will you need?

The number of treatments necessary will vary based on your need and color preference. Ongoing whitening treatments are recommended on a scheduled basis to maintain and rejuvenate your smile. Though most people will notice a big difference after only one treatment, additional treatments may be necessary to achieve the sparkling white teeth you desire.

Who should consider teeth whitening?

Most people are good candidates for teeth whitening and do see substantial improvements in their teeth, even after one treatment. All whitening procedures work best on natural, healthy teeth and should not be used by people with poor oral health or anyone advised by their dentist not to have their teeth whitened.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Research has shown that when teeth are normal and healthy, there are no apparent adverse effects on the tooth’s enamel.

Will teeth whitening affect dental work?

This process will not whiten crowns, fillings, veneers, or other dental work. The process does not adversely affect these structures. We recommend whitening your teeth prior to major front teeth treatment to achieve the best possible tooth color match.

How long will the results last?

Whitening duration varies from person to person. Certain food and drink as well as other factors (i.e. tobacco, medications, age) can all affect the longevity of your results, especially if between visits you continue to use the maintenance pen. This easy-to-use pen can be used anywhere and takes only a few minutes to help you keep your teeth looking their whitest.

When is the best time to whiten your teeth?

It’s best to have your teeth whitened immediately after your teeth have been professionally cleaned.

Are there any side effects?

Only a small percentage of people may experience a slight tingling sensation during treatment. This subsides once the teeth are rinsed.

Does whitening work for everyone?

Teeth whitening is not effective on individuals with stained teeth as a result of certain medications (tetracycline stain), decalcification, or those born with grayish teeth. It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women or children under 14.
