Make Your Smile Brighter and Whiter
Even the healthiest of teeth can become discolored over time. The aging process will add a tint to your teeth, as will many other things. Coffee, wine, sports drinks, berries, and tomato juice can all stain teeth, as can smoking and even some medications. Stained and discolored teeth can add years to your appearance and generally detract from your appearance.
Modern teeth whitening is fast and painless. Lotus Family Dental offers two ways to whiten your teeth: in-office or at-home treatments.
In-office Teeth Whitening Treatments
Teeth whitening in the dentist’s chair is simple. Dr. Mashkouri will treat your teeth with a special peroxide gel. The peroxide can penetrate into your enamel to treat deeper stains without harming the structure of your teeth. A special light is used to make this gel even more effective. The process is fast, lasting only about 45 minutes, and the results are dramatic. This treatment can change the color of your teeth by several shades, and the results are permanent. You will enjoy brighter, whiter teeth as you go about your daily routine.
The at-home treatment is similar to an in office session, but is spread out over a short span of a few days. Whitening gel is placed in specialized trays and worn for a set amount of time each day. Dr. Mashkouri will discuss the length of your sessions during your appointment. The peroxide gel gently bleaches away stains while leaving your enamel unharmed. Within as little as two weeks, your teeth will be noticeably whiter.
In order to be eligible for teeth whitening treatment, your teeth must be healthy, with no cavities or other damage that needs to be repaired. Dr. Mashkouri will discuss your treatment options and help you choose the correct whitening procedure during your visit.
Dr. Mashkouri is a cosmetic dentist offering patients in LA and Westwood teeth whitening treatments. To learn more about teeth whitening and to schedule an appointment for a consultation, call Lotus Family Dental today at (310) 776-6441.
