Different Methods for Tooth Whitening

Different Methods for Tooth WhiteningOur teeth have a smooth, protective enamel surface. As we age, the enamel thins, and the dentin begins to show through as a yellow tint. Stains collect in tiny cracks in the enamel, and our teeth become dull and discolored. Teeth whitening can restore them to their former glory and give us a whiter, more attractive smile. Our Los Angeles dentist has several effective teeth whitening options that can help restore your smile.

Zoom whitening is a professional whitening procedure that is done in the office and can provide fast, noticeable results. The Zoom whitening gel will be applied to your teeth once your gums and mouth have been protected, and a special light will be used to activate it. A series of 15-minute treatments will be repeated for about one hour, after which your teeth will be brightened by an average of eight shades.

Not everyone is a good candidate for teeth bleaching, however. Certain medications and conditions, gray rather than yellow teeth, and large numbers of restorations can make bleaching inappropriate or ineffective. Veneers may be a better choice for these individuals.

Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that cover your teeth. They can be used as a part of a smile makeover to improve the appearance of misaligned teeth or simply to brighten and whiten teeth. Traditional veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed in preparation of placement, while Lumineers require little if any preparation of the teeth. Both porcelain veneers and Lumineers can provide you with a beautifully white, bright new smile, regardless of the number of restorations or type of staining you have.

If you are interested in having a fresh new smile, our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist can help. A number of cosmetic dentistry options are available to help you get a smile you can again be proud to show off.
