Getting your teeth whitened by your dentist is quite straightforward. And the results are sure to outshine the over-the-counter products that you often see advertised on TV. First, you need to get a mould of your mouth made. This is an easy process that ensures maximum results for your investment in whitening. Since whitening only works on the enamel of teeth, these impressions let your dentist make custom plastic trays that fit perfectly to your bite. Once the trays are complete, you’ll come in to the dentist again to see how they fit, and to deal with any necessary adjustments. From there, you are set to get whitening. You simply fill your custom trays with a special whitening solution and then pop them in your mouth. Whitening works best when you wear the trays overnight, or twice a day for 30 minutes. Usually you’ll want to follow these steps for a few weeks. But your specific instructions will depend on the level of staining. You might experience a little bit of tooth sensitivity during the time you’re whitening, but it should quickly subside once you’re finished. Additionally, while whitening works quickly, it isn’t permanent. So you may need some touch-ups every couple of years. We recommend you keep coming to your regular dental checkups to get the most of your newly-whitened smile and ensure the rest of your mouth remains healthy too. If you think teeth whitening might be the right option for you, you’re encouraged to contact our office using the number at the top of this page. We’ll be happy to book your appointment for your teeth whitening in Escondido and get you started on the road to a whiter smile.

Dentures from Dr. David Bainer, DDS: The Smile Gallery thumbnail


Chances are, you’ve heard of dentures. Colloquially known as false teeth, these dental appliances are replacements for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Dentures are purposefully and artfully constructed to resemble (and even enhance!) your natural smile. When dentures are done right, most people won’t even be able to tell.

Root Canals

Root canal! The words elicit a reaction in just about everybody. But a root canal is a very necessary and beneficial treatment when the nerve of a tooth is being adversely influenced by infection or decay. The goal of the root canal treatment is to save the tooth, despite the infection. This is done by removing the decay and bacteria, and replacing the void in the tooth with a medicated dental filling. When the root canal is complete you can expect to have full function of your tooth again.
