Options for Whiter Teeth
A white smile is an essential part of a youthful, healthy appearance. Fortunately, it is easier than ever to achieve a gleaming white smile, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Dr. Eftekhari, cosmetic dentist in Culver City, offers many options for teeth whitening, allowing you to select the option that best meets your needs.
Dr. Eftekhari is an expert in Zoom whitening in Culver City. Zoom whitening is a highly effective in office whitening procedure that uses a powerful peroxide gel that penetrates the dental enamel and whiten the teeth. Once the gel is activated by a specialized LED light, it whitens the teeth by as much as five to eight shades in just one office visit. This teeth whitening method is one of the most effective teeth whitening treatments available.
Other patients prefer gentler, at home whitening methods that work more gradually but are less likely to cause teeth sensitivity. Dr. Eftekhari is glad to recommend one of these methods for patients who are interested in trying them. These methods include whitening strips and gels. Patients use these methods at home for a period of a few days to up to two weeks. At home whitening methods are also very effective, although they tend to brighten teeth gradually and with less dramatic results compared to in office whitening methods.
Another option is to use whitening toothpaste. These toothpastes work very gradually but can be very effective at removing light stains and discoloration. However, these toothpastes can only be used for short periods of time because they are abrasive and can wear down the tooth enamel when used too frequently.
Dr. Eftekhari will be glad to recommend a whitening method that is most appropriate for the type and the severity of stains that you have. Call United Dental Care to schedule a consultation today.
