Everyone wants pearly white teeth, just like the actors they see on the silver screen. However, very few people are born with perfectly white teeth, and even those people must work hard to maintain them. It used to be that yellowing teeth was considered a part of the natural aging process. However, the media and our culture place a particular emphasis on having white teeth as a sign of health. With teeth whitening treatments, you can have what nature did and can not give you. Dr. Zadeh, Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, offers several different methods for teeth whitening in LA.
Although all available whitening systems work to various extents, the tooth whitening procedures that Dr. Zadeh offers are more effective than over-the-counter tooth whitening kits. They contain professional strength gels, and many of them are applied by Dr. Zadeh or his assistants. The customized application of the bleach solution, whether by specially made trays molded for your teeth or manually applied by the dental staff ensures that the strength of the solution remains undiluted and the compound is the most effective for your teeth.
Unlike over the counter tooth whitening kits, which only whiten the surfaces of your teeth that are easily visible, these procedures whiten every surface of the tooth. This ensures that you have even coverage and results that last long after your treatment is completed. While many over-the-counter teeth bleaching treatments can give you the initial results you are looking for, the results often fade after a few weeks because they lack the strength, efficacy of the dental tooth whitening process, and the expertise of a cosmetic dentist and his staff. With proper care, a tooth whitening treatment can give you visibly whiter teeth for several years.
Deep Tooth Bleaching for that Perfect White
One of the most popular procedures that Dr. Zadeh offers is the “deep bleaching procedure.” With this tooth whitening procedure, the teeth are rendered more permeable to the bleaching solution. A highly concentrated solution is applied under direct supervision of Dr. Zadeh. You then go home with special trays to start bleaching your teeth for 10 days. At your second office visit, a more concentrated bleach is applied and the teeth are sealed. Deep bleaching is effective against the most stubborn stains including coffee, tea, soda, and dark stains, or Tetracycline discolorations that are otherwise thought impossible to remove by ordinary tooth whitening and bleaching techniques.
Laser Teeth Whitening by ZOOM!
Another option is ZOOM! Laser Tooth Whitening. The ZOOM! Teeth Whitening procedure uses a concentrated peroxide gel that whitens the teeth immediately. Dr. Zadeh applies the gel in his office, and in about one hour, your teeth will be several shades whiter. This system is faster than many other whitening procedures, and no anesthesia is needed. Often, ZOOM! whitening is combined with a take-home teeth whitening kit to give you the benefits of both systems. The results are immediate and your teeth can maintain their whiteness for years with proper care and routine touch-ups.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
These offer a great deal of convenience for many patients. These kits can be used in conjunction with an in-office procedure to maintain the brilliant whiteness between treatments. Using take-home kits is especially helpful if you smoke or drink a lot of staining beverages, such as coffee or tea. Alternatively, you can purchase a take-home whitening kit to use on its own as a method to whiten your teeth. The best advantage of this system is that you have full control over how white your teeth get and you can touch them up rather inexpensively without having to come to the office. If you have staining or other discoloration that is resistant to bleaching and remains after several treatments, Dr. Zadeh may suggest porcelain veneers instead to give your teeth that healthy, white appearance you want.
