Comfortable teeth whitening near me
Have you ever met someone and wondered how they got such amazingly white teeth? Sometimes these results come with a hefty price — their comfort! Dr. Don Mungcal offers Los Angeles patients safe, effective alternatives to harsh teeth whitening techniques that can cause sensitivity and pain.
The answer to a brilliant smile is not found in off-the-shelf pastes or strips. In our office, patients can choose from several options for stunning results. To begin a smile transformation, all you need to do is schedule a consultation with Dr. Mungcal. After listening to your concerns and goals and examining your teeth and gums, the doctor discusses which treatment will achieve the desired results.
At a young age, our teeth are healthy and white but over time the enamel slowly coating the tooth is worn down causing our teeth to become stained and yellow which is why teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening – they include at home and in-office. With in-office treatments you will see faster results and you will receive the safest treatments for bleaching the teeth and yield the whitest smile. So don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use or just ageing. Ask your dentist about whitening options that may be right for you.
At-home whitening kits are available through Downtown Dental. Simple, reasonable, and convenient, home whitening provides gradual brightening, one day at a time.
- We take impressions to make custom-fit whitening trays
- You receive a supply of whitening gel and instructions for home use
- A gel is applied to teeth daily using the trays. The treatment gently lifts stains a little more with each application
Most people achieve an outcome like in-office whitening after a week to 10 days of daily wear – with little or no discomfort.
Whitening with restorations
In some cases, Dr. Mungcal may recommend dental restorations to resolve stubborn discoloration.
- Dental bonding – The same material used for tooth-colored fillings can conceal stains
- Crowns – A crown covers a tooth with a cap of lustrous dental ceramic
- Porcelain veneers – Thin coverings hide stains and many other appearance issues
Bright for life
Downtown Dental offers a Whitening for Life program. It rewards patients who come in for regular teeth cleanings and checkups, with complimentary bleaching trays and whitening gel provided twice a year.
