Beverly Hills residents can get amazing looking teeth from a top-rated dentist. Dr. Justin Raanan is well known for improving the appearances of his patient’s smiles. He is a Harvard trained and award-winning dentist that provides expert cosmetic dental care. Dr. Raanan loves providing transformative dental treatments. One such treatment is cosmetic teeth whitening — a fast and simple solution for patients seeking a transformative smile.
Your teeth can gradually darken for many reasons. Common causes include:
Brushing and flossing every day will help remove plaque and stain producing substances. Staining substances, such as coffee and tobacco.
When going for teeth whitening, it is vital to keep the following points in mind:
Our Beverly Hills teeth whitening is possible in the comfort of your home and at the dentist’s office. When the procedure is at the office, the dentist will ask some history questions. This will help give insight into the causes of your discoloration. Next, our dental hygienist will clean your teeth. The purpose here is to remove any harmful bacteria or food particles present. It’s vital that your teeth are clean before the procedure starts. Apart from this, there are also many home kits available. These kits can assist a person in teeth whitening inside the comfort of their own home. When using these products, it’s essential to follow the steps and directions carefully. Dr. Raanan can also provide trays with whitening gel. The gel is for individual home use to get whiter teeth.
Expect some restrictions and minor side effects if your teeth aren’t 100% healthy. If you have receding gums or tooth decay, expect some sensitivity. Patients with crowns or veneers should know that teeth whitening will not work on them. Dental prosthetics like these are made to be bleach and stain-resistant, which means that whitening agents will have no effect on them.
The tooth whitening procedure can’t thoroughly whiten your teeth. It does lighten the shade, which will make your teeth bright and shiny — an effective way of restoring natural colors without affecting the tooth surface.
In-office teeth whitening generally takes around 30 to 90 minutes per visit. The exact time can vary depending on the amount of discoloration present on your teeth. Some patients can get results in as little as one visit, while others might need several. Dr. Raanan will give you an estimate during your consultation.
Since teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment, dental insurances don’t cover the procedure. Our dental office is fully transparent with pricing. We will give you what the total costs will be after your dental exam once we know the extent of treatment needed.
On average, teeth whitening treatments last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Some patients report that their whitening lasting up to 10 years. Like anything else, your habits will play a significant role in longevity. Practicing good daily hygiene along with a proper diet, will ensure lasting results.
With its noninvasive nature, teeth whitening has very little to no side effects. Any discomfort felt will be dependent on the individual patient. Some might have a sore throat, and others might feel cold sensitivity while other patients might feel some sensitivity to their gums. Any side effects are temporary and would disappear in a few days. If you feel any discomfort that continues, it would be to best to notify our dental office.
It would depend on how you handle the whitening kits. Some people might not be able to understand the directions and can end up damaging their own teeth. Following the instructions step-by-step is best for optimum results.
Keep in mind that over the counter and take-home kits will take longer to whiten your teeth since their cleaning agents lack the potency of in-office whitening treatments.
After you get your teeth pearly white, you might ask how do I keep them that way? Keep the following points in mind:
Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and especially after taking the last meal of the day. The more you care for the teeth, the longer your whitening results will last.
Using a quality toothpaste that has fluoride in it. Read reviews on the toothpaste and invest in a good brand. Dr. Raanan will be happy to make a recommendation if you like.
Avoid sugary foods and drinks. These are not good for your teeth and for your health. Our dental office also recommends limiting acidic food as well. Such as wines, coffees, and teas. We understand that completely eliminating these foods is a big task, which is why we advocate for consuming these foods in moderation.
Keep curring with your dental check-ups and cleanings.
