Professional Teeth Whitening in Encino

Teeth whitening and bleaching procedures come in many forms and price ranges. The difference is in the wording. "Whitening" is the term used in referring to restoring teeth to their natural color. The term "bleaching" refers to teeth whitening beyond their natural color, and often includes products which actually contain bleach (typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide).

As time goes on, though we may once have had sparkling white teeth, our tooth enamel gets worn with age, as well as stained by food, beverages, tobacco, etc. Teeth whitening procedures like those offered in our Cosmetic Dentistry Los Angeles office, provide dramatic results in achieving a brighter, more beautiful smile.

We offer bleaching using in-office systems (Boost!, Zoom!, BriteSmile), and combination tooth whitening home systems (Night White, Day White, and Oppalescence).

Boost!


We have been getting great results with less sensitivity using Opalescence Boost!  The no light in office system uses a 40% hydrogen peroxide system with potassium nitrate.  By not using a light, less heat is generated on the tooth, meaning less sensitivity.  The most recent studies have shown the efficacy rate equal to systems with lights but less post op sensitivity.

Zoom!

The Zoom! Chairside whitening system is widely used in the U.S. and worldwide. It features a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel and the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, which is used to accelerate the bleaching process. Generally, the hydrogen peroxide gel is applied three times, each interval lasting 15 minutes. Immediately afterwards, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth. To help maintain your whitened teeth, you are given a Zoom! home-use touch-up kit, including custom-fitted whitening trays.

BriteSmile


The BriteSmile bleaching system is known for its gentleness and ease of access. Available in our dental office as well as self-standing BriteSmile whitening locations throughout the country.

The BriteSmile whitening procedure features proprietary hydrogen peroxide whitening gels which are pH balanced to maximize whitening efficacy, and which contain glycerin and water to help minimize tooth dehydration. The gel is specifically engineered to respond to the blue wavelengths of the light system. When the blue light illuminates the gel, it activates and safely accelerates the whitening process, achieving amazing results in just 1 hour.
