Teeth whitening can benefit almost any smile. As long as you have an overall good dental health without any signs of gum disease, you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening from Designed Smiles in Brea, CA. Teeth can become yellowed or stained from certain foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, cola, medications, smoking, and just age in general. These stubborn stains will most likely not be able to be removed with brushing, or over the counter whitening treatments. Professional whitening has a higher percentage of bleaching power because it is administered by your dentist in comparison to the lower leveled over-the-counter treatments which are not legally allowed to contain the same amount of bleach as professional whitening solutions. With professional whitening, your teeth can get up to 8 shades whiter! If you have crowns or bridges, please note that they will not respond to teeth whitening treatment. If your stains are too deep to respond to whitening, you can consider dental veneers or dental crowns as your next option. Almost everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening.
At Designed Smiles in Brea, we use the Zoom!® whitening system. Zoom! teeth whitening treatment can be done either in-office or at-home depending on the patient’s request. The in-office treatment takes 45 minutes (3 sessions of 15 minutes) and will whiten your teeth up to 8 shades. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so custom made trays can be created to suit your smile. Before the whitening begins, your dentist will put a protective barrier over your gums and apply vitamin E to your lips to protect your gums and lips. The tray is filled with the whitening solution and is placed in your mouth. Your dentist will place the WhiteSpeed lamp in front of your teeth to expedite the whitening process. The LED lamp speeds up the whitening gel reaction which is why it delivers results so fast. The whitening sessions last 15 minutes for 3 or 4 times. Each time, the whitening gel is reapplied. After your treatment, you will be provided with take home trays and whitening gel to complete your treatment at home.
The at-home treatment is similar to the in-office treatment. You will need impressions taken of your teeth for the custom trays to be made. You will then be given the option of daytime whitening or nighttime whitening. Whichever one works with your schedule will be your best option. The at-home whitening treatment should provide you dramatic results like the in-office treatment, although these take longer because there is no light to expedite the treatment.
