Teeth Whitening


Illuminate Your Smile


A bright, white smile can give a person the ability to captivate a room. Unfortunately, there are a number of elements in daily life that, over time, can dull the teeth and diminish a person’s desire to smile. At the dental practice of Dr. Ronald B. Dinning, our primary goal is to provide patients with beautiful smiles that they would be proud to show off. That’s why we offer teeth whitening to our Santa Barbara and Montecito-area patients. With in-office and take-home treatment options available, we can accommodate the specific needs of each patient, no matter his or her schedule, budget, or cosmetic goals. If you are interested in enhancing your smile through the use of teeth whitening, contact our dental practice today.


Convenient Options for Teeth Whitening


At our dental practice, we understand that while all of our patients desire an attractive, healthy smile, other obligations tend to take priority over that endeavor. For that reason, we give patients options when it comes to whitening their smile, including advanced in-office treatment using the Zoom!® Whitening System, and take-home trays that can be used to whiten the smile at their leisure. We believe that the best dental treatment is one that is not only effective, but convenient. While each treatment option has its own set of pros and cons, they both produce the same end result: a luminous, youthful smile.  


Zoom!® Teeth Whitening


The Zoom!® Teeth whitening system offered at our Santa Barbara practice is among the most advanced professional whitening treatments available today. This system uses a combination of a prescribed whitening gel and a specialized light to produce results up to eight shades brighter in less than one hour. During the Zoom!® procedure, Dr. Dinning will carefully apply a gel to each of the teeth before focusing a light on the gel to activate its ingredients. The light is used for 15 minutes before the gel is removed and the process is repeated. This is done a total of four times, resulting in a treatment session that lasts just one hour. The professional-strength gel breaks down and ultimately removes surface stains. Results from the procedure can last for years, and can be sustained with good oral hygiene habits.


Kor Whitening


Kor Whitening is a service Dr. Dinning offers to patients who are working with really hard stains in their enamel. This is used for deep bleaching and is highly effective. The result is a thorough cleansing of debris from between enamel rods, rejuvenating the enamel and delivering truly amazing whiteness.


Take-Home Treatment


In addition to in-office treatment, Dr. Dinning offers customized at-home teeth whitening trays to his Santa Barbara and Montecito-area patients. During a visit to the dental office, patients will have an impression of their teeth taken which will serve as a model for the creation of whitening trays. Patients can then fill these trays with a prescribed whitening gel and wear them nightly to brighten their smile. When patients are diligent about using the trays, they can begin to see results within 2 to 3 weeks. While this teeth whitening treatment takes longer than the Zoom!® system, it can be done at the patient’s own pace, and in the convenience of his or her home.


The Benefits of a Brighter Smile


Although teeth whitening is considered to be a solely cosmetic procedure, it offers a number of benefits. A white, stain-free smile can drastically improve your appearance, helping you feel more energetic and youthful. Because this enhanced appearance can also increase your confidence, the benefits of teeth whitening are far reaching. With a boosted self-esteem, you can finally feel proud to show off your smile, giving you the power to make lasting impressions. Finally, teeth whitening is beneficial because although the procedure is simple and relatively quick, the results are long-lasting. With proper oral hygiene, you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.
