Many patients may need teeth whitening today. It's normal for the tooth enamel gradually to wear away over time, and resulting in a slight darkening of the enamel. There also are a number of other reasons that patients may opt for teeth whitening. Patients who drink coffee or tea regularly often develop a brownish tint on their teeth, and regular red wine consumption may result in the darkening of teeth as well.
Cigarette smokers often develop a yellowish or brownish tint on the teeth due to nicotine exposure. For some patients, the reason for teeth darkening is rooted in early childhood. Excessive fluoride exposure and use of certain antibiotics during childhood may cause tooth darkening or discoloration. No matter why your teeth have darkened, teeth whitening may be the way to achieve the bright smile you want.
Teeth whitening is performed on-site at the Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care office. The teeth whitening system used at Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care is Zoom® Professional In Office Teeth Whitening. This professional whitening system offers very effective whitening, with an average improvement of eight full shades.
The teeth then are exposed to the Zoom lamp light, which activates the gel to accelerate the bleaching process. The whitening gel goes to work, penetrating the enamel and dentin to dissipate stains and discoloration very quickly and effectively. No damage to the teeth occurs -- the only change is a whiter and brighter smile.
The entire procedure takes under an hour. Treatment is generally broken into three parts, each lasting 15 minutes. You even can schedule Zoom whitening on your lunch hour, if desired.
You can maintain your newly whitened teeth by closely following all recommendations from the Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care treatment provider. This includes things like avoiding coffee, tea, tobacco, and other substances which cause stains. Regular dental cleanings can also help you maintain your newly whitened teeth. The Beverly Hills Specialty Dental Care dentist may also suggest whitening toothpastes for use at home.
