At Danny Shiri DDS, we provide efficient teeth whitening treatments to patients looking for a cosmetic dental solution to remove teeth stains and brighten their smiles. These treatments can be performed by the dentist in our office or by the patient in the comfort of their own home.
Teeth whitening is considered a safe procedure when performed by or under the guidance of a dental professional. To maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment, it's essential to practice good oral hygiene, avoid or limit consumption of staining substances, and follow any post-treatment instructions provided by our dentist.
Types of Teeth Whitening
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office whitening is a fast, simple solution for enhancing the appearance of your smile. It’s ideal if you want whiter teeth in just one visit to the dentist’s office. During a typical in-office whitening procedure, our dentist first applies protective gel to your teeth and gums. Then, they’ll apply a bleaching agent to your teeth and use a special light system to activate the gel. The time this process takes will depend on your level of staining and the desired shade of white you’d like to achieve. Most patients need one visit to get the desired results.
At-Home Whitening Kits
While whitening kits are also available at drugstores, professional at-home kits provide superior results. With over-the-counter whitening kits, the bleaching agent is weaker and less effective. On the other hand, professional kits use a powerful gel-like solution that works quickly to break down stains and lighten your tooth color. The results will be visible after only a few sessions, while over-the-counter solutions take much longer to produce noticeable changes.
Why Whiten Your Teeth?
There are several reasons why someone might want whiter teeth, but the most common cause is to improve the appearance of their smile. You can easily accomplish this with our teeth whitening treatments that are designed to give you a brighter, more youthful smile in as little as one visit. A brighter smile can also improve your self-confidence and well-being.
Another reason someone would want to have their teeth professionally whitened is to reduce the effects of staining or discoloration caused by medication. People who take certain medications often experience tooth discoloration as a side effect. With professional treatment from our dentist, you can restore your teeth to their natural whiteness.
You can also have your teeth whitened to help minimize the effects of aging. As you get older, your tooth enamel can become thinner and cause your teeth to become yellow. Professional teeth whitening can help restore the natural brightness of your teeth and reduce age-related stains.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile and achieve a brighter, more confident look. For more information, visit Danny Shiri DDS at 6310 San Vicente Blvd, Ste 295, Los Angeles, CA 90048, or call (323) 935-9102.
