If you have ever smiled in the mirror and wished your look was a little brighter, you might be a candidate for teeth whitening. Teeth whitening dates back to 3000 B.C.E. when the ancient Babylonians used twigs to scrub their teeth clean of plaque and stains. Today’s whiteners are much more advanced, with whitening ingredients such as peroxide, and light-accelerated procedures. Dr. Randy Lozada, our Los Angeles teeth whitening expert, can help you decide if teeth whitening is right for you.
Dr. Lozada, our expert in teeth whitening in Los Angeles, offers complimentary consultations, during which you can learn more about your whitening options. Many factors can affect the color of your teeth, including their natural color, the amount of enamel wear you have, and the types of stains you have. We will work with you to find the most effective whitening products and treatments so that you can get the best results possible.
Teeth Whitening Los Angeles
As one of the safest cosmetic procedures available, just about anyone can benefit from professional teeth whitening. Dr. Lozada, our Los Angeles teeth whitening expert, offers in-office, light-assisted whitening that can quickly and effectively whiten teeth in about an hour. This type of procedure uses a powerful peroxide-based whitening agent that is applied directly to the surface of the teeth. A special light is used to activate the whitening gel and speeds the whitening action. When you leave our office, your teeth may be as much as eight to 10 ten shades lighter than when you walked through our doors.
At-home whitening is also available. With this type of whitening, Dr. Lozada, our expert in teeth whitening in Los Angeles, will take dental impressions that will be used to customize whitening trays. You can use these customized whitening trays with powerful prescription-strength whitening gel in the privacy of your home to whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few days to a few weeks.
Regardless of the type of whitening you choose, you can maintain your results with healthy dental habits and good food choices. Limit your contact with potentially staining foods and drinks, and brush and floss regularly. Use touch-up whitening products as needed.
