At-Home Tooth Bleaching Options
Whitening toothpastes are mildly abrasive and help lift away surface stains. The polishing agents help remove stains without the help of any peroxide. These toothpastes are inexpensive and can help brighten teeth, usually up to one shade.
Whitening strips and gels contain peroxide-based bleaching products that can be applied directly to tooth enamel. These products are typically applied consecutively for 10 to 14 days for best results.
Tray-based tooth bleaching systems can be custom fabricated by Dr. Kashfian, expert in tooth bleaching in Beverly Hills and expert in tooth bleaching in Chatsworth. These systems come equipped with trays that fit comfortably over teeth. Trays are filled with bleaching gel and are placed over teeth in intervals of several hours for up to four weeks.
In-Office Tooth Bleaching Beverly Hills
Dentist-supervised, in-office tooth bleaching treatments are highly effective in brightening smiles. These bleaching systems are much stronger than at-home bleaching methods. In addition, special tools and equipment used by Dr. Kashfian can help intensify the bleaching process. Dramatic results can be seen in as little as 30 minutes, leaving teeth up to eight shades lighter.
Despite the method of bleaching used, you can help maintain the results with good oral hygiene. Avoiding beverages such as red wine, black tea, coffee and carbonated drinks, and strong pigmented foods such as berries can help. You should also visit Dr. Kashfian on a regular basis.
