Tarzana Dentist Teeth Whitening


If the yellowness of your teeth is the reason why you are not living your life to the fullest, the situation can be easily remedied. Do not bail out on life just because you have stained or discolored teeth. With the amazing array of Tarzana teeth whitening options, a dazzling white smile is just a few hours away.

Why do you need to whiten your teeth?

Most people opt for teeth whitening to create a sparkling, white smile that makes them look youthful and more attractive. With airbrushed images of celebrities sporting fabulously white smiles on every magazine cover, young men and women are under a lot of pressure to look their best.

The whiter smile you have always desired is accessible not just to celebrities, but also to ordinary people.

Stains accumulate on the surface of your teeth from prolonged and frequent exposure to staining pigments in food, beverages, cigarettes and tobacco. If you aren’t proud of your smoker’s teeth, opt for Tarzana teeth whitening procedure and we will get your attractive pre-smoking smile back for you.

Tarzana teeth whitening is a very affordable procedure. Choose the best option according to your budget, time-frame, desired whiteness and the extent of staining. Our teeth whitening experts will help you make the best choice.

What does Tarzana Teeth whitening involve?

The very first step in teeth whitening is a preliminary dental checkup. Why? Cavities, gum diseases, sensitive teeth etc. may cause tremendous pain when they are exposed to bleaching agents. To ensure a safe and pain-free procedure, the Tarzana cosmetic dentists will check for signs of teeth decay and periodontal diseases before the procedure starts.

If you have cavities or sensitive teeth, our dentists will advise you of alternate procedures such as veneers and lumineers.

After the checkup, a protective gel is applied on the gum and other soft tissues of the mouth. If the whitening gel touches the gums, tongue or cheeks, it may cause intense pain and even tissue burns.

The next step is to apply the teeth whitening gel to the enamel of the teeth. The gels are made from compounds like hydrogen carbamide and hydrogen peroxide. They work on the basic principle of oxidation. When the stains are oxidized, they disappear. Oxidization also removes dirt and debris present on the surface of the teeth.

A single sitting of bleaching takes about 20 minutes. About 3 sessions of 20 minutes each are required to achieve the desired level of whiteness.

After the teeth whitening procedure, the original color of the teeth is restored. Today’s advanced teeth whitening procedures involve usage of laser to activate the bleaching gel. This produces an even superior result than normal bleaching.

What about over–the–counter bleaching products?

Over-the-counter bleaching kits promise a ‘Hollywood smile’ and many people opt for this very inexpensive option for whitening their teeth. While these products may deliver results, they are often temporary and unsatisfactory. Bleaching trays come in a standard size and may not be the perfect fit for your mouth and teeth. You may end up with uneven bleaching or even worse, over-whitened teeth. You may also have to spend many hours with the bleaching product on the teeth.

The safer, better and more effective alternative is to contact a teeth whitening specialist.

If you're looking to transform your smile quickly and easily, Veneers and Lumineers are two great options to consider. At Tarzana Dentist, Dr. Chaves and his team will deliver comprehensive results in the correction of crooked teeth, fixing gaps between teeth, repairing chipped teeth, and whitening yellow or discolored teeth. Veneers and Lumineers offer some of the most dramatic and effective results in repairing and perfecting your smile.

There are two types of veneers - composite and porcelain. Porcelain Veneers are a thin and semi-transparent sheet of porcelain that is considered a more natural-looking approach in smile repair. A thin sheet of porcelain is bonded over the surface of the tooth. Composite veneers are constructed from a composite material, such as resin and are utilized in more extreme cases of tooth disrepair. Lumineers are made of patented porcelain that is thinner than any Veneer on the market today. No matter what your smile aspirations may be, Veneers and Lumineers are a viable option to fix any aspect of your teeth you are not happy with!
