Studio City Whitening

There are a number of reasons why someone might want to whitening their teeth in Los Angeles. When a dentist decides to whitening a persons teeth, a number of items are considered before the procedure, including the color of one’s hair. Very few individuals actually have completely white and brilliant teeth, and with time teeth can become even more discolored.

Before you consider whitening your teeth, it is important to pay attention to your habits and the current state of your teeth. If you are a person who is constantly drinking coffee and/or smoking cigarettes, we recommend you stop these habits before starting your Los Angeles teeth whitening procedure. If you were to follow a whitening treatment and you continue to smoke, your teeth will be stained soon after your whitening appointment.

With regards to teeth whitening, this is typically done through professional bleaching. The first step is to visit your dentist and he or she will decide if whitening is right option for you. Once the decision is taken, during the whitening appointment your LA dentist will put a gel or rubber shield to protect your gum from the bleach. After this your dentist will apply the bleach, which is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The contact of the active ingredient with the teeth provokes oxygen to get to the outdoor layer of the teeth enamel and made the color of the teeth lighter.

This process usually takes over three weeks and start at the dentist´s office. Your Toluka Lake Cosmetic dentist will make an impression of your mouth, so that you can use a mouth-guard at home to continue with the bleaching process. Some products require ten to twenty minutes, while others require more time.
