Which Teeth Whitening Procedure Is the Best?

combination of Porcelain Veneers and Zoom whitening by Dr. SandsIf celebrity smiles are any indicator, Americans admire brilliantly white teeth. Unfortunately, enamel erosion, poor dental hygiene, certain foods and drinks, and smoking can all discolor your teeth. Professional teeth whitening treatments can help you brighten your pearly whites and achieve a dazzling smile. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Kevin Sands uses ZOOM! Teeth Whitening because of its incredible effectiveness in providing excellent results that last longer than any other teeth whitening product on the market.

Why ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Is the Best

  • Immediate Results: Many whitening procedures require multiple treatments or even daily applications to achieve noticeable results. After a single ZOOM! Teeth Whitening treatment, your results will be immediately noticeable.
  • Short Treatment: Other time-consuming teeth bleaching treatments may make you question whether this was a good idea in the first place. ZOOM! Teeth Whitening treatments take only one hour and produce immediate results that will quickly reassure you: yes, it was definitely worth it.
  • Painless: Too many teeth whitening treatments aren’t safe for people with sensitive teeth or cause increased sensitivity. ZOOM! Teeth Whitening bleaches the surface of the teeth while doing little to the deeper nerves, and any minor discomfort is easily treated with over-the-counter oral pain medications.
  • Safe: ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is safely administered in our dental office and affects only the outer layers of teeth without damaging any of the deeper nerves. Your gums and soft tissues are covered with a gel coating to protect them so that they are not irritated during the treatment.
  • Dramatically Whiter Teeth: ZOOM! Teeth Whitening can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in a single treatment session. This is two shades whiter than what laser whitening treatments can accomplish.
  • Long-lasting Results: Many teeth whitening procedures are frustrating because, after several treatments or regular at-home use, the results still do not last very long. ZOOM! Teeth Whitening produces results that can last for 12 to 18 months, or even longer with careful dental hygiene habits. This is longer than any other teeth whitening product available on the market.

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening can bleach discolored teeth to give you the radiant, white smile you desire. To schedule your appointment, call our Beverly Hills dental office at (310) 273-0111 or contact us online today.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Tooth WhiteningLaser teeth whitening is extremely safe when performed by an experienced professional like Dr. Kevin Sands, and precautions can be taken to ensure you have the most comfortable experience possible. However, many people choose over-the-counter teeth whitening over laser teeth whitening because they are afraid of potential pain from the laser. Although this pain can be avoided, people might be hesitant to undergo treatment for a couple of reasons.

With laser teeth whitening like Zoom!®, a laser emits heat to activate the whitening gel. The heat can potentially harm the gums and cause tooth sensitivity if certain precautions are not taken. Also, the gel that is used in laser teeth whitening contains hydrogen peroxide, which is stronger than the active ingredient found in many over-the-counter whitening products, carbamide peroxide. Carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide after several minutes and can only whiten the teeth after that point. It is used in take-home whitening products because it is less likely to cause gum irritation. Essentially, you will have poorer results with the at-home carbamide treatment because the whitening agent takes a longer time to become active. Other products that do not contain a hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent (like many whitening toothpastes) will only treat surface stains, but there is little to no risk for tooth sensitivity or pain.   

Bleach Whitening With Precautions Tailored to You

Teeth whitening that uses bleach, which includes laser teeth whitening, can cause sensitivity in the early stages of the treatment when the hydrogen peroxide penetrates the enamel. Most potential patients do not know that this sensitivity is usually temporary and will stop after the treatment. Even so, several precautions can be taken to prevent discomfort. If your teeth are particularly sensitive, Dr. Sands will use a lower concentration of whitening gel. He may also wait longer in between laser applications during your session, or he will recommend that you come back to the office another day for a subsequent treatment. He may also apply a desensitizing treatment before your session, or he may prescribe a gel or toothpaste for sensitive teeth.

A Comfortable Whitening Experience With Dr. Kevin Sands

The degree of pain, discomfort, and tooth sensitivity during teeth whitening is dependent on the technique used, the quality of the bleaching product, and the way your teeth respond to treatment. Dr. Sands takes all the necessary precautions to ensure you have the most comfortable experience possible. He uses Zoom!® laser teeth whitening, which is one of the best laser whitening applications on the market. It includes a special buffer that protects the teeth from damage and pain. The entire mouth, including the gums, is also protected from the bleaching materials.

With Dr. Sands’ experience and precision, you can be sure your smile will quickly become whiter and brighter without discomfort. For more information or to schedule a consultation for laser teeth whitening, call 310.273.0111. For your convenience, you may also fill out our online contact form.
