The teeth can lose their brightness for many reasons. In order to improve their color and appearance, teeth whitening in Pasadena can be done. It is one of the most demanded and popular cosmetic dental treatments all over the US alone.
The most common causes of stained teeth:
• Coffee (especially if you drink your coffee black)
• Wine (specifically red wines such as merlot or cabernet sauvignon)
• Too much fluoride exposure as a child
• Tetracycline antibiotics usage as a child
• Pasta sauces (especially marinara)
• Dark teas (i.e. rooibos, black, etc.)
• Dark berries (i.e. raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
Teeth whitening or bleaching is performed on natural teeth, which have become stained and discolored. Your teeth do not look as pleasing and aesthetic to the eye when you smile, and you become more conscious while talking.
In order to solve the problem of darkened or stained teeth, professional in-office teeth whitening or bleaching can easily be performed to dramatically brighten, whiten and improve the look of your teeth.
To showcase the power of teeth whitening in Pasadena, please refer to one of our patients below who has given us permission to highlight their teeth whitening results with Dr. Sona Asatryan.
For in-office teeth whitening, a bleaching gel containing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is applied into a transparent stock tray. This is then placed over the teeth, which are submerged within the gel for a period of time.
The next step involves an activating light to activate the gel and allow the bleaching process to whiten the front surfaces of all the teeth covered in bleaching agent. Within just an hour, your teeth can whiten up to six shades lighter!
Store bought solutions such as whitening strips, gels, toothpastes, mouth rinses, and other whitening kits could work & for some people have completely whitened their teeth. However, for a large majority of people these products do not offer satisfactory results. Moreover, results often take many weeks before any significant results are seen. The in-office teeth whitening procedure is currently the quickest, most affordable way to whiten your teeth.
