Teeth whitening with Hydrogen Peroxide is currently very popular. There are a number of different treatments available ranging from a plastic tray which the patient wears overnight at home or the special laser teeth whitening procedures called Zoom or Brite Smile, which is done in the office.
New breakthrough technology allows you to whiten your teeth comfortably and effectively, in only 45 minutes.
These pictures are not touched up. They are real. The trays our office supplies are a clear plastic form, custom made to the exact shape of your teeth. Simply place a small amount of the gel into the tray and insert the tray into your mouth. Usually the best time to wear the tray is during the evening, although your own individual schedule will give you the best times for wearing it.
The Los Angeles laser teeth whitening is usually done in one hour. A gel (a harmless gel, based on hydrogen peroxide, H2O2) is placed on your teeth and the dental laser activates the gel. This is done for 15 minutes, then the gel is removed and fresh gel is reapplied. The entire procedure is a 3 to 4 times 15 minutes procedure.
Teeth become whitener because hydrogen peroxide has the ability to open the dental tubules (comparable to pores and openings in your skin) and the peroxide cleans the teeth from the inside, which makes them become whiter and brighter. Since the dental tubules are opened, teeth also become more sensitive to cold, but rest assured this is only temporary, since they will close again shortly after this treatment.
Darkened teeth can be lightened noticeably (6+ increments on a dental shade guide) in a relatively short period. Success of treatment depends on how often patient wears the bleaching trays should you decide to do trays, or how many 15 minutes session you do with the dental laser. We use the latest version, called Zoom Advanced Power III and have three machines ready for you. If you like, they can be used at at the same time so you and a partner/ friend can get the treatment done at he same time
