Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options. Everyone experiences a dimmer smile eventually. Foods, drinks, tobacco, and naturally aging all contribute to stains that can make your smile not shine as bright. Everyone wants to have that Hollywood smile, which is why so many patients come to see our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert to make their teeth up to eight shades brighter.
Before proceeding with the whitening treatment, our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles will have to perform a thorough dental examination to make sure you do not suffer from any underlying tooth or gum problems. If there is any sign of decay or gum disease, those problems will need to be corrected first before you can begin the treatment. You may also need to undergo tooth whitening if you are planning on getting veneers or some other cosmetic restoration. This is to ensure that the color of your restoration matches the color of your natural teeth. After it is determined that you are a good candidate to get a teeth whitening, you can begin the procedure.
Zoom Whitening Los Angeles
Zoom whitening can often be completed in less than an hour, so it can fit perfectly into your busy schedule. Our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert will begin the procedure by covering the lips and gums so that the teeth are the only things exposed. Your teeth will then be coated with a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. A special light will then be shone onto the teeth which will activate the gel and break apart stains and discoloration on the teeth. The gel will remain in place for 15 minutes, and most patients require three 15-minute sessions in order to get the full effect.
Our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles will give you instructions on how to keep your teeth nice and bright for as long as possible. You will be given a touch-up kit, and it will be recommended that you stay away from certain foods and beverages such as tea, wine, coffee, and soda. And make sure to follow good oral hygiene habits, as regularly brushing and flossing can help reduce the amount of stains on your teeth.
