In-office Professional Teeth Whitening with BriteSmile®
One of the easiest, most effective and popular dental procedures, teeth whitening treatments can make a dramatic difference in your smile instantly. At Pope Dental, we utilize BriteSmile® in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments to help you brighten your smile.
With an in-office BriteSmile® professional teeth whitening treatment, you can have a brighter smile in just one hour! A safe and fast-acting teeth whitening tool, BriteSmile® brightens and whitens teeth by removing stains left behind by soft drinks, tobacco, and tea. Results are immediate and, with the proper care, long lasting as well.
Independent tests have found that the professional BriteSmile® teeth whitening procedure offered at our San Francisco Bay Area practice does not weaken or corrode teeth and is safe for use on anyone 14 years of age or older.
In-Office BriteSmile® Teeth Whitening Procedure
When you come in for a BriteSmile® teeth whitening treatment in Walnut Creek, we will first take a picture of your smile so that you can have your own personal before-and-after photos. Next, Dr. Pope will apply the BriteSmile® teeth whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a gentle blue light.
Following your procedure, a second picture will be taken so that you can see just how much brighter your teeth have become in just one hour.

At-home Teeth Whitening Products from BriteSmile®
In addition to professional in-office teeth whitening with BriteSmile®, at Pope Dental in the East Bay, we offer take-home BriteSmile® whitening products. You can use these products to whiten your smile at home, on your own schedule. You can use the at-home BriteSmile® products alone or to supplement your in-office whitening treatment.
Although the at-home BriteSmile® products do not produce results as stunning as the in-office treatment, they still whiten your teeth better than most over-the-counter whitening products.
BriteSmile® vs. Over-the-counter Whitening Products
Today there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products, ranging from strips to gels to “paint-on” applications. Many of these products are less expensive than in-office teeth whitening treatments or even at-home BriteSmile® whitening products; however, you should be cautious when buying over-the-counter teeth whiteners.
Without proper instruction from your dentist, you can harm your teeth with at-home whitening products. If you use teeth whitening products incorrectly, you may harm your tooth enamel or irritate your gums.
Also, you need to remember that over-the-counter teeth whiteners typically do not whiten your smile as effectively as a professional whitening treatment and can take longer to produce results.
Be sure if you are going to use over-the-counter teeth whitening products that you discuss the options and the proper use of these products with Dr. Pope.
