Teeth Whitening Beverly Hills
Whitening your teeth is an easy way to rapidly improve your smile and brighten teeth that are yellow, gray or simply dull. Kourosh Maddahi, DDS offers teeth whitening in Beverly Hills using Zoom! Tooth Whitening. In just 45 minutes, many patients experience whitening results that leave their teeth up to eight shades whiter.
For patients looking for teeth whitening in Beverly Hills, Dr. Maddahi offers a fast, convenient method to rejuvenate and brighten his patients' smiles. In addition to the rapid results patients experience with Zoom! they also experience less fade-back than with many other whitening products. Your teeth will stay whiter for longer.
The process of applying Zoom! Tooth Whitening is simple. A trained clinician prepares the patient for the whitening process by covering the patient's teeth and gums. This done, she applies the whitening gel and positions the Zoom! light over it to activate the gel. This is repeated a total of three times for a 45 minute treatment. While the patient's teeth whiten, she can relax in the spa atmosphere of Dr. Maddahi's practice. It is recommended that the patient have a regular cleaning before beginning the whitening treatment.
While it is possible to whiten at-home with an over-the-counter treatment, the results are not comparable to what can be achieved in a dental office. Through his selection of Zoom! Tooth Whitening for his in-office treatment, Dr. Maddahi uses a process that clinical studies have concluded works better than whitening with a gel alone. The reason involves the use of light during the whitening process. Unlike whitening products used at home, we are able to increase the effectiveness of the gel through the use of this light. When the light hits the hydrogen peroxide based gel, it activates the hydrogen peroxide, causing oxygen to be released. This oxygen enters the tooth's enamel and dentin, bleaching colored surfaces while leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
After the procedure, the patient's teeth will be whiter and, with proper care such as brushing and flossing twice a day, will always be whiter than they were before. Touch-up gels, such as Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel, prolong the teeth's brilliance even longer.
For most patients, tooth whitening is a procedure that generates minimal discomfort. Tooth whitening is widely regarded as one of the safest cosmetic dental procedures available, but some patients may experience tooth sensitivity during the procedure or tingling immediately following it. Some patients may also find the low heat generated by the light to be uncomfortable, but for most, the procedure is an easy way to rapidly brighten your smile and build the confidence that having a white smile can bring.
Bright Smile Whitening
Among all of the ways to improve one's overall appearance, tooth whitening has recently become one sure way that this happens. With a mixture of carbamide peroxide and hydrogen, bleaching effectively ensues, and the patient is left with a healthy, natural smile. In a pressure-filled society where it is vital to look a certain way, to appear attractive in a myriad of important situations, tooth whitening allows people to look their best all the time.
Issues with tooth discoloration typically are caused by simply getting older, drinking a lot of coffee, teas, and sodas, and perhaps the most extreme example, cigarette smoking. The most common means for treating teeth discoloration is through bleaching, and although some will experience sensitivity in the gums and teeth, many opt for this very simple procedure in spite of potential issues with sensitivity.
The Bright Smile company has created many products that help to attain whiter teeth, some of which include toothpaste, mouthwash, and a pen. These are effective for keeping the teeth white after a professional bleaching, but in no way do the in-home products take the place of having teeth bleached in a professional environment. When looking for bright smile Beverly Hills dentists, Dr. Maddahi is highly experienced with regard to tooth whitening.
The best way to create optimal results with teeth bleaching is to first have a cleaning done. All of the unnecessary plaque, debris, mucus, and film that adhere to the teeth over months and years can interfere with the process. Many patients opt for a soothing wash, which acts as a neutralizing compound to reduce sensitivity in the mouth. Although this is not mandatory, in doing so, the chemicals will set more effectively, and the patient will experience more dramatic results.
What makes a dentistry practice successful is in its utilizing of the latest state-of-the-art equipment coupled with an experienced dentist and a discerning eye—one that pays attention to detail—and brings an artistic perspective to his or her work. There is never a one-size-fits-all situation, for every patient is unique and has individual concerns that are different from one patient to the next. Every procedure is treated with the same level of energy and effort.
For many dental patients, arriving at the office can create a host of emotions, some experience anxiety, while others are simply uncomfortable or mildly afraid. This is why the overall ambience and aesthetic environment in a dentist's office is so important. Besides becoming involved in the overall internal environment of the office, Dr. Maddahi has helped to create a relaxing environment and employed only the most informed, kind employees. The dental procedures have moved far away from agonizing discomfort to a more peaceful, inviting atmosphere. While waiting for dental services, individuals are invited to participate in a tea ceremony if they would like.
According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, Brite Smile is not only safe and effective, but the results last for a long time. Once again, the best way to use Brite Smile is to have a reputable dentist involved in the process to ensure all the proper safety and the best results. The blue-light technology allows for relatively little sensitivity when applied. As far as other dental work is concerned such as fillings, gum work, etc, Brite Smile will not interfere with previous work; the process is very safe and helps to create a glistening smile every time.
