Options for Getting your teeth Whitened

Options for Getting your teeth WhitenedWhitening your teeth can give you a brighter smile and boost your self esteem. If you are interested in teeth whitening, you have several different options. Before you choose one, a visit to our Los Angeles dentist is in order to ensure your teeth and gums are in good health and determine which whitening option is right for you.

Whitening toothpastes contain abrasives designed to remove superficial stains. They are not capable of altering the intrinsic color of your teeth, and their effects do not last once their use is discontinued.

Over-the-counter whitening products are available as whitening strips, trays, gels, or mouth rinses. They are effective against deeper stains, but they may take several weeks of regular use before you will see results. Kits that use trays are not customized to fit your mouth, which can allow the bleaching gel to irritate your gums.

Professional teeth whitening options include whitening trays and gels or in-office bleaching procedures. Professional trays and gels are highly effective whitening options and generally work quickly compared to the over-the-counter versions of these products. The trays are custom fit, minimizing contact with sensitive gum tissue and maximizing contact with tooth surfaces. These gels have a higher concentration of active ingredients, allowing them to work quickly and effectively.

In-office bleaching procedures are the fastest bleaching option available today, taking just over an hour, and the dramatic results are long-lasting, with only occasional touch-ups required to maintain permanently whiter, brighter teeth.

To learn more about your options for getting your teeth whitened, contact our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist today. Our dentist offers several types of cosmetic dentistry treatments for whitening the teeth, including Zoom whitening, porcelain veneers and Lumineers.
