Teeth Whitening

Out of all of the dental procedures (outside of cleanings and checkups), dental fillings are among the most common. This is especially so for children, who are still learning to properly care for their teeth. Even so, tooth fillings are necessary for patients of all ages and can help to restore the integrity of a tooth so that it does not need a more serious procedure or extraction.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Every day, we consume enough food and liquids to keep our bodies strong. Unfortunately, certain types of food/drinks tend to bleed colors, which may stain our teeth. After consuming several of these kinds of products over an extended period, our smile begins to dull and discolor, turning beautiful white teeth unappealing shades of yellow, tan, and brown.

Coffee

Coffee contains acidic polyphenols (or tannins) that can cause discoloration and staining in avid coffee drinkers. Coffee is also known to alter the pH level in the mouth, accelerating damage of any additional acidic food consumed after drinking it.

Tea

Even if considered healthier to consume than other caffeinated beverages, tea contains the same tannins as coffee that cause acidic discoloration. Different types of tea flavors result in various hues: green tea results in gray teeth, black tea results in yellow teeth.

Acidic and Citrus Foods

Acidic foods such as tomatoes and citrus fruits can cause yellowish stains to appear on teeth. Though healthy in composition, erosion of the tooth enamel is common with these fruits, causing the yellow tissues beneath the teeth (called dentin) to show through.

Sugar and Salty Snacks

When you consume snacks such as chips, cookies, or candy, sugars in these treats can quickly cling to teeth. Bacteria in your mouth will feed on this build-up, releasing acids that lead to cavities and tooth decay. Stains caused by this process are usually dark and unsightly looking.

Wine

Both red and white wine can cause discoloration to the teeth. Red wine can result in gray-tinted teeth, while white wine leaves acid on the teeth quickly allowing other colored foods to stain.

Tobacco Products

Tar and nicotine are quickly absorbed by your teeth when smoking tobacco products. Teeth can turn an unappetizing yellow color from these chemicals, that can continue to build up even with whitening treatments.

Types of Teeth Whitening Available in Encino

To help combat those pesky stains left by foods and drinks, teeth whitening treatments in Los Angeles can be extremely useful in bringing back the whiteness to your smile. There are two types of procedures commonly used by cosmetic dentists to increase the vibrancy of your teeth:

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

One method that dramatically increases the whiteness of your teeth is Zoom!® teeth whitening. This process lasts about 60 minutes with instant results. Teeth on average increase about six shades whiter, but have been known to increase up to ten shades in the most favorable cases.

Zoom!® teeth whitening treatments in Los Angeles, start with the application of a gel. Once applied to both the top and bottom teeth, the gel is activated with a blue plasma light. This low-intensity light allows the gel to break down stubborn stains.

Touch up kits are also available for individuals to bring home if they begin to notice signs of slight staining. Zoom!® in Encino is perfect for individuals with busy schedules and lifestyles. Patients can conveniently come in and out of an appointment with immediately whiter teeth, prepared for the rest of their day!

Home Whitening Trays

Patients who are unable to attend regularly scheduled appointments for whitening treatments will love the option of take-home teeth whitening. These whitening trays are customized for each case to ensure every area of the mouth is covered thoroughly. To fabricate the trays, at least one appointment will be required for the dental impressions to be made.

Each kit comes with a set of trays, gel, and specific instructions to follow for optimal results. Typically, brushing and flossing are recommended before teeth whitening near you to remove bacteria and food that could cause spots.

The gel is applied to the teeth and covered with a tray to be worn for a specific amount of time, varying based on the shade you are looking to achieve. At-home whitening trays allow for complete flexibility in your treatment, as well as control in the shade of whiteness you’re looking to achieve.
