If you’ve decided that it’s time to whiten your smile, but are looking for a solution that’s more effective than over-the-counter products sold at your local drugstore, you’re in luck. Now, you can get professional whitening results under the care of your trusted dentist, from the comfort of your own home.
Dr. Don Mungcal of Downtown Dental in Los Angeles, CA, offers patients at-home whitening trays. These trays that are customized to fit your mouth, accommodate a professional-grade whitening gel. Patients fill the trays and use them for the directed amount of time and number of sessions to achieve the level of whitening that they desire. The whitening trays are especially effective for patients who have extremely sensitive teeth as they provide a gradual application of whitening solution.
Some patients will see results immediately, while many others will begin to notice a difference after a week of daily use. The trays are comfortable and easy to use. In addition, they offer you the ability to use the trays while cooking, cleaning, reading, watching television, or working.
After you’ve reached the results you want, the trays are yours to keep. Use them for touch ups to keep your smile sparkling.
Tooth whitening is the fastest and simplest way to improve the appearance of your smile. If you’re looking for faster results or have deep and dark set-in stains, one of our in-office treatments such as Zoom or the KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching System may be a better choice. During the Zoom treatment session, you spend an hour in the dentist chair relaxing while Dr. Mungcal and his team apply the whitening gel to your teeth and whitening it using an ultraviolet light. With KoR, you undergo a combination of in-office sessions and at-home whitening trays. KoR is highly effective and typically patients experience little or no sensitivity.
Regardless of the option you choose it’s important to note that your smile will only be as white as you want it to be if you have excellent oral health care habits and if you limit, or avoid, dark food that can stain your teeth. Foods that are especially prone to staining include coffee, dark colored berries and juice, red pasta sauces, and wine. When you begin to notice the effects of these foods and beverages on the appearance of your smile, call Dr. Mungcal for a touch-up session or touch-up whitening gel.
A bright, beautiful, and white smile can boost your self-confidence, making you look and feel better. Don’t put off improving your smile for another day. Call Downtown Dental today to schedule an appointment.
