Teeth Whitening Torrance
Teeth whitening treatments work by whitening the tooth enamel. The frequent consumption of sugared drinks, citrus products, heavy smoking or certain medications can quickly discolor the natural whiteness of tooth enamel. When brushing or flossing is not enough protection, a teeth whitening treatment can help restore teeth to a natural white color. Excellent oral hygiene helps to strengthen the tooth enamel that works to repel staining and discoloration. Existing dental work including crowns, bridges or fillings can be changed to match the new shade of the teeth after the whitening treatment.
There are multiple ways to administer teeth whitening treatments. Our Torrance cosmetic dentist can help you decide what is the best treatment for your needs. All treatments include a concentrated dental gel that is applied to the upper and lower teeth. This special gel is used to help dissolve the surface staining that usually exists on stained teeth. The gel is allowed to penetrate into the tooth enamel to produce the whitening effect. This modern treatment can be completed quickly and there are no side effects. Your teeth can be whitened by several shades to produce a naturally white smile.
After care procedures are important to maintaining the quality of your smile. A detailed schedule will be created to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and white. Standard brushing and flossing combined with routine dental checkups ensure the quality of a whitened smile will remain. A teeth whitening procedure will likely need additional applications as teeth become stained due to dietary choices and age. Cosmetic "teeth whitening" makes it possible to receive a whiter smile that can be displayed with confidence to the world.
