Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening enhances the brightness of your natural teeth to make them whiter. Various professional strength in-office and at-home whitening products are available at Dental Care of Beverly Hills.

What causes tooth staining?

Tooth staining if often inevitable due to lifestyle factors and certain foods and drinks. The following factors can lead to tooth discoloration:

  • Smoking
  • Wine
  • Sports drinks
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Berries
  • Soda
  • Popsicles
  • Some medications

It’s difficult to avoid all foods and drinks that stain teeth, as some of them are healthy for you. Fortunately, teeth whitening at Dental Care of Beverly Hills is simple, fast, and noninvasive.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

What you can expect during teeth whitening depends on the type of whitening products you choose. Dr. Lalezarian and his team may recommend:

In-office whitening

Dr. Lalezarian can make your teeth shades whiter in just one in-office whitening visit. He uses a protective gel or shield on your gums and applies a bleaching product to your teeth. He may shine a special LED lamp on the teeth to accelerate whitening and apply a protective post-treatment gel to your teeth afterward.

At-home bleaching

Dr. Lalezarian also offers at-home whitening products and custom-fit trays for your teeth. While at-home treatments aren’t as strong as in-office products, they can give you the same aesthetically pleasing results in just a few days or weeks.

Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?

You might experience tooth sensitivity after tooth whitening, as peroxide in whitening products can penetrate your enamel and irritate tooth nerves. This sensitivity is temporary, however. Overuse of teeth whitening products can damage your gums or tooth enamel, so always follow Dr. Lalezarian’s instructions.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

Just about everybody can benefit from teeth whitening, but talk with Dr. Lalezarian if you have:

  • Sensitive teeth
  • Infected gums
  • Tooth decay
  • White spots on your teeth
  • A crown or bridge

Don’t let stained teeth ruin your beautiful smile and confidence, as teeth whitening may be the simple solution you’ve been searching for. Schedule an appointment with Dental Care of Beverly Hills by phone or online today.
