And while September 29th is National Coffee Day, this shouldn’t stop you from enjoying one of your favorite beverages! However, taking care of your teeth after consuming dark beverages and considering whitening treatments can help you maintain your pearly whites! Dr. Darren Gonzalez and his dental team in Santa Rosa, CA, can educate you further on ways to brighten your smile and combat common stains and discolorations that may impact your confidence.

What whitening options are available with Dr. Darren Gonzalez?

Our practice is excited to offer two methods of professionally whitening the smile, including our in-office power bleaching and our take-home whitening kits. 

  • In-office power bleaching is a popular choice for those who want to achieve brighter teeth in just one visit to our Santa Rosa office. This treatment uses a special whitening gel and light to deeply penetrate the enamel and break up any existing stains. In just one hour, patients can achieve amazing, long-lasting results!
  • Our take-home whitening kits are an easy and convenient way to brighten the smile gradually over the course of two weeks. Our office will make these custom-fitted trays to ensure a comfortable and efficient fit. Patients will fill the trays with a small amount of whitening gel and wear them for 30 minutes each day. After two weeks, patients will typically achieve their desired level of brightness and can continue to maintain these results with regular use.
