Dentist in Los Angeles, CA describes the benefits of Zoom whitening treatment


Dr. Mungcal is proud to offer the Zoom whitening system for a brighter, more beautiful smile.
When patients want a whitening treatment that works, they need to look further than just the drugstore’s oral health aisle in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Don Mungcal and the team at Downtown Dental are excited to provide Zoom! in-office power bleaching, which has many benefits over the over-the-counter solutions.

What is Zoom! whitening?

Zoom! is a specialized whitening treatment that can be used for patients who are interested in combating dull, discolored teeth. This treatment is done right in our practice under the guidance of a professional. Zoom! whitening works by using specialized bleaching gel that is administered onto the surfaces of the teeth and activated using a light that lifts the stains from deep within the tooth enamel. Zoom! whitening works quickly, offering patients a way to brighten the smile in just one appointment.

What are the benefits of Zoom! whitening?

  • Treatment by a dental professional with years of experience
  • Barrier gel eliminates burning of the gum tissue
  • An affordable solution for patients wanting fast results
  • Reduced chances of sensitivity, which is often seen with over-the-counter products
  • No risk of patients completing the process incorrectly and resulting in unwanted side effects
  • A way to prepare the smile for upcoming events and special activities such as weddings or reunions

What other options are available for brightening the smile?

Outside of in-office power bleaching with Zoom, we also offer a take-home whitening kit that includes custom whitening trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. These are used in the privacy of one’s own home to gradually brighten the enamel of the teeth over several weeks. Patients put the gel into the trays and wear them for a specific period of time each day. For our patients who maintain their regular dental visits every six months, we also offer the Whitening for Life program. With this, we offer free bleaching gel at each visit, so patients can continue to use their in-home whitening kits to brighten their smile and maintain the results.

Why might patients want to whiten their smile?

There are many reasons patients may want to consider whitening their smiles. Some patients want to have their smile looking its best for a reunion, wedding, or other special event. Others want to improve their appearance and address troublesome yellowing that may be caused by food habits or even genetics. Some patients have undergone a variety of treatments to improve the appearance of the smile and feel as though the dullness and discoloration is taking away from how beautiful the smile could look. Most patients consider brightening their smile as a personal decision to improve self-confidence and self-esteem.

Who is a candidate for teeth whitening services?

Dr. Don Mungcal in Los Angeles, CA is a dedicated dental professional
Patients who do not have dental restorations within their smile and are adults are the perfect candidates for Zoom! whitening. Individuals who have restorations such as porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding, dental crowns, or dental bridges may want to reconsider brightening the teeth. This is because these restorations will not respond to whitening agents. This can cause the restorations to stand out as darker than the rest of the smile. This is not a desirable look. However, patients who are serious about brightening their smiles and maintaining the results can talk to the team at Downtown Dental about the possibility of replacing these restorations to match whitened teeth once the treatment is complete. This can be an expensive option, but it is the only way for a patient with restorations to achieve a brighter smile in many situations.

How much does whitening cost?

The cost of professional whitening in our practice varies depending on the method of whitening selected.

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
