What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment designed to remove stubborn stains and discoloration. We only use high-quality whitening products, ensuring each patient undergoes a safe treatment that delivers stunning results. The bleaching agents in whitening treatments break down stains into smaller pieces, raising them from your teeth and boosting the whiteness of your smile. Within one appointment to our Woodland Hills office, you can say goodbye to years of stains and leave with a bright white smile.
Reasons Why Teeth Stain
It’s common for teeth to stain as we age, but various other reasons contribute to tooth discoloration, including:
- Eating certain foods such as blueberries and pomegranates
- Drinking coffee, red wine, tea, and soda
- Poor oral hygiene
- Certain medications
- Tobacco product use
- Alcohol consumption
You don’t have to live your life with a smile you don’t feel confident in. Schedule a consultation with our Woodland Hills dentist today by calling (818) 346-3337.
Types of Teeth Whitening Offered at Southern Cal Smiles
At-Home Professional Whitening
For our patients looking to whiten their smiles in the convenience of their own homes, Dr. Fredericks provides professional at-home teeth whitening in Woodland Hills. The entire treatment will take a few weeks to complete and involves wearing thin, custom-made trays over your teeth for a couple of hours each day or while you sleep.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening with the BriteSmile System gives patients a smile up to eight to 12 shades brighter in just one appointment at our Woodland Hills dental office. The teeth whitening system is designed to improve the look of stains on your tooth enamel and the underlying dentin without harming the tooth structure. In under an hour, our cosmetic dentist can take your smile from dull to dazzling.
The Professional Teeth Whitening Process
You’ll begin with a thorough dental examination at Southern Cal Smiles. Dr. Fredericks will assess your oral health, especially the strength of your enamel. She’ll present you with our teeth whitening options and if you pick our at-home kits, she’ll take custom trays using molds of your teeth. She’ll include a teeth bleaching solution and go over instructions with you to ensure you’re safely and effectively whitening your teeth at home.
When you choose our in-office laser whitening treatment, we’ll start with a thorough tooth cleaning and polishing. We’ll dry your teeth and place a protective barrier over the gums. Dr. Fredericks will then apply the whitening gel and once activated, stains will be removed from your enamel for several minutes until she removes the gel. Depending on your current enamel color and whitening goals, the gel will be applied up to three times.
The length of each treatment time will vary for each patient, and final results may take longer depending on your goals and starting enamel color.
