A whiter smile is at the top of a lot of wish-lists. In fact, teeth whitening treatments are the most popular cosmetic dental treatment today. Our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert offers whitening treatments that can provide you with the beautiful results you crave without the need for any lengthy or invasive procedures.
Our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles may recommend Zoom for fast, dramatic whitening results if your smile is stained by coffee, tobacco, tea, wine and similar substances and you have no untreated dental disease. Many patients are able to achieve a smile that is about eight shades brighter. Some are able to achieve even brighter results up to 12 shades lighter. Zoom is a patented in-office light-activated whitening treatment that uses advanced techniques to get the best results possible.
Zoom Whitening Los Angeles
If you are a candidate for Zoom whitening, our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert will evaluate your smile to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening. Once we have protected your gums and soft tissues, we will apply the special whitening gel directly to your teeth. The special light activates the gel and allows it to penetrate deep inside your teeth to break up stains in the enamel and dentin.
While Zoom whitening is safe, some patients may experience mild sensitivity after treatment. If you are prone to tooth sensitivity, let us know. Our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles will prescribe an anti-sensitivity toothpaste to use in the days leading up to your treatment. After treatment, your teeth will be permanently lighter than they were before. However, new stains can still develop, which means that you may need to limit your tobacco exposure and use a straw when drinking tea and cola and rinse with water after drinking coffee. Good dental hygiene habits can also help keep your teeth stain-free.
The best candidates for Zoom are individuals over 14 years old whose teeth exhibit food, tobacco, tetracycline or similar stains. If you are nursing, pregnant or undergoing orthodontic treatment, you may need to delay the procedure. Contact our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist today to find out more or to schedule your consultation.
