If you’re looking to enhance your smile, due to discoloration, or from staining from fluorosis, (too much fluoride usage) we can help! We offer teeth whitening in our office and would be more than happy to consult with you.

At Barry Kinney, we offer teeth whitening in San Francisco, California, and would invite you to contact us to see if it’s right for you. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Barry Kinney, will examine your teeth and review your dental records, to determine whether you’re a good candidate for zoom, since the service is not right for everyone.

There are several benefits to using the system, including:

         Proven effectiveness

         Safe to use

         Fast time to whiten (about 45 minutes to get up to 8 shades whiter)

         Hassle-free application

         Long-lasting solution

There are some considerations when choosing teeth whitening techniques, as they largely depend on the state of your teeth. For instance, yellow teeth do best with bleaching, while brown or gray teeth are not as responsive. Also, we don’t recommended whitening if you have tooth-colored fillings, crowns, or front teeth bonding. It may be better to have dental veneers or bonding as an alternative treatment in those circumstances.

Some things to be aware of when choosing to whiten your teeth. First, you may experience a bit of sensitivity for a bit after your treatment. If that happens, we suggest using a toothpaste, specifically for sensitive teeth. You may also try gum chewing, which activates the saliva response, which helps distract patients from pain. If after a few treatments, the sensitivity continues, you may need to take a break from teeth whitening.
