Although regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings are important for keeping your teeth healthy, your smile is still subject to discoloration. Aging, tobacco use, and certain foods and drinks (like coffee and tea) can all contribute to a yellowing smile over time. As a result, we have found that many patients choose to have a whiter smile with treatments like in-office and at-home whitening.
Our dentist in Encino provides professional whitening. This is a one visit treatment that uses an oxygen-rich gel to break down stains and leave you with a brighter and whiter smile.
When the gel is applied to your teeth, we use ultraviolet light to activate it. This process is very gentle and provides you with same day results. In fact, you may see that your teeth are up to eight shades whiter.
Our at-home whitening option is great for patients who choose to whiten their teeth at home whenever it is convenient for them. Our dentist in Encino takes impressions of a patient’s teeth in our dental office in order to create a custom tray and bleaching agents to take home. The at-home whitening system uses the same product that provides results with our in-office system, but with a lower concentration.
When you are ready for more whitening in about six months, all you will need is more of the bleaching agent because you already have trays that are customized just for you.
