Stained teeth can seriously hamper your overall appearance, and they can make you look years older than you actually are. Bright, white teeth are a sign of youth and health, and many people are utilizing various teeth whitening treatments in order to get that Hollywood smile. There are numerous over-the-counter strips and gels for sale, but the results you would achieve with these tend to be minimal, and it can take weeks to notice any effects. This is why patients flock to see our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert, so they can get a dazzling smile in under an hour.
Your teeth can become discolored over time as a result of naturally aging or by drinking wine, coffee, tea, or soda. Smoking can also cause your teeth to prematurely stain. If you are unsatisfied with the way your smile looks, our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles can help. Before beginning the procedure, our dentist will need to conduct a comprehensive dental examination to make sure you do not suffer from tooth decay or gum disease. Our dentist will also ask you about your lifestyle habits to see if you can truly benefit from teeth whitening. For example, patients who refuse to quit smoking may need be suitable candidates since the effects of whitening would be lost almost immediately.
Zoom Whitening Los Angeles
Zoom whitening can be completed within an hour, but our dentist will recommend a dental cleaning beforehand. The treatment begins with our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert covering up the lips and gums so that only the teeth are exposed. The Zoom hydrogen peroxide gel is then applied to the teeth, and together with the special Zoom light, they will break apart all extrinsic stains. The gel will remain in place for 15 minutes, and you may need to repeat the process three or four times. During this time, you can relax while listening to music or watching T.V.
Our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles will give you a touch-up kit so that you can maintain your results for as long as possible. We may also recommend that you limit your exposure to wine, coffee, tea, and soda so that your teeth will remain bright. If you have any further questions about caring for your smile, they can be answered by our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist.
