One of the most common aesthetic changes that dental patients notice in their smiles is that their dental enamel has started to look dark, dull, or stained. This is because our teeth, while quite sturdy, are not impenetrable. The foods and drinks that we consume can leave color deposits on the tooth surface over time, and various structural/health issues will also affect dental whiteness and luminosity.
Professional dental whitening treatments can quickly and effectively refresh your smile. Keep reading to learn why so many people in our Toluca Lake cosmetic dental office love professional whitening.
A professional whitening treatment can usually be completed in less than an hour, and many people are able to lighten their teeth by multiple shades after just one session. If you want to achieve more dramatic results, we can repeat whitening treatments over a period of weeks until your smile is as white and luminous as you want.
Professional whitening treatment is much more affordable than other treatments that are used to cover dental stains—including dental bonding and porcelain veneers. You can improve the appearance of your smile without having to invest a lot of money into treatment.
Whitening gels do not alter the underlying structure of your teeth at all—this is a non-invasive way for you to improve the appearance your smile. Because it is non-invasive, this treatment is very comfortable for the patient. Some people find that their teeth are more sensitive to heat and cold directly following dental whitening, but this side effect dissipates quickly post-treatment.
