The food and drinks we consume affect the appearance of our teeth. Substances such as coffee, wine, and tobacco cause the teeth to become yellowed or discolored. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic choice because it can dramatically enhance your smile. Dr. Don Mungcal of Downtown Dental in Los Angeles offers professional whitening options. Rather than laser teeth whitening, which can cause sensitivity, we offer whitening trays, crowns, and veneers to improve the color of your teeth.
Our team understands the importance of a beautiful smile, but we also want to maintain patient comfort and convenience based on lifestyle needs. We offer custom whitening trays to treat your teeth at home. This allows patients to achieve their desired level of whiteness at their convenience.
Quality, convenient whitening
At-home whitening trays are created using impressions of your teeth. Being custom-created ensures the trays fit comfortably to avoid slipping or spilling the whitening gel. Patients are given professional-grade whitening gel to achieve dramatic results. Easy-to-use, economical, and convenient whitening trays allow patients to use the product on their own time. You choose when you whiten, in the car, at home, or at work. Each day the stains are lifted a little more. Trays are worn daily for a few weeks until the desired shade is achieved.
Whitening at home comes with several benefits:
- Professional quality whitening
- No dripping of the product
- User friendly
Deciding to alter your smile
During your dental appointment, your dentist will ask about your lifestyle and whitening expectations to determine an appropriate treatment method. In addition to at-home trays, our practice offers porcelain veneers and crowns to whiten the teeth and enhance the smile giving you the look you have always wanted. If you need to correct more than just the shade of your teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate. Let Dr. Mungcal help you achieve the smile you deserve.
