Teeth Whitening

Cosmetic-Dentistry---Teeth-Whitening-by-Cosmetic-Dental-of-Encino--(1)While maintaining good oral hygiene through regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings is crucial for overall dental health, it is common for teeth to become discolored over time. Factors such as aging, tobacco use, and consumption of certain foods and beverages like coffee and tea can contribute to a yellowed smile. To address this, many patients opt for teeth whitening treatments, both in-office and at-home, to achieve a brighter smile.

In-Office Whitening – Zoom!

At our dental office in Encino, we offer professional teeth whitening services. Our in-office whitening treatment is completed in a single visit. It involves the application of an oxygen-rich gel that effectively breaks down stains, resulting in a brighter and whiter smile. To activate the gel, we use ultraviolet light, which is a delicate process. You can expect immediate results on the same day, with your teeth potentially becoming up to eight shades whiter.

We offer advanced Zoom! whitening method for in-office power bleaching. This procedure has several advantages when you visit our dental office in Encino. It is safe, effective and causes minimal sensitivity compared to older versions that use UV light rays. Instead of UV lights, our Zoom! whitening utilizes a specialized LED light, resulting in a brighter smile without the drawbacks of alternative solutions. The majority of our patients are suitable candidates for Zoom! power bleaching treatment.

At-Home Whitening

Teeth-Whitning-thumb Our dental office in Encino offers an effective at-home whitening option for patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at their convenience. To begin the process, our dentist takes impressions of the patient’s teeth in our office to create a custom tray and provide bleaching agents for home use. The at-home whitening system utilizes the same product found in our in-office treatment but with a lower concentration.

Once you are ready for additional whitening after approximately six months, you will only require more bleaching agents as you already have customized trays. This approach allows patients to maintain their bright smile over time rather than considering it a one-time treatment. Many patients appreciate the flexibility of enhancing their smile when desired and preserving its radiance for months or even years by regularly visiting the dentist for cleanings and check-ups and acquiring more bleaching gels to use with their personalized trays.

Is professional teeth whitening safe?

Certainly! Dr. Sheila Mahooti has been offering professional whitening solutions to patients for many years. She prioritizes the safety and effectiveness of the procedures performed at her dental practice. Dr. Mahooti ensures that the treatments she provides are suitable for each patient and will not cause any harm to their teeth. She understands the significance of having a stunning and radiant smile and is committed to helping her patients achieve the smile of their dreams through these services.

Which whitening method is right for me?

Deciding to whiten your smile is a personal choice that can be made in consultation with your trusted dental team. We offer at-home and in-office whitening options to accommodate different budgets and lifestyles. Our in-house whitening is recommended for those seeking immediate results, providing a noticeably brighter smile before leaving our practice. On the other hand, some patients prefer a more cost-effective approach that allows them to whiten their teeth in their homes, giving them greater control over the outcome. Our take-home whitening kits are designed for such patients. We encourage our patients to familiarize themselves with the available options and select the one that aligns with their preferences and goals.
