How to Get Bright, White Teeth

  • Sharebar



Okay before we get started here, I have to remind you that results depend entirely on your oral hygiene habits and the dental technique you opt for with the Los Angeles cosmetic dentist you have. With Dr. Kanani though, you won't have to worry about that one! This is definitely a "you get what you pay for" type of situation as well so you'll definitely be satisfied with Dr. Kanani. Just keep in mind all of the factors that go into a Los Angeles teeth whitening procedure, usually part of the brightness is due to dehydration from the procedure so don't be upset if your teeth aren't as bright after a couple of hours. Lastly, always have your teeth cleaned before any whitening procedure because this will give you the best chance for the best results.

  • Let's start off with the famous whitening strips: these are actually very weak compared to what you can get at a dentist's office. Not only that but they don't usually get all of your teeth successfully and you might end up having a line across your teeth if you misplace it.
  • There's also the Zoom! system that has been known to be incredibly effective and long-lasting, so this is a very good option
  • Next we have the traditional, basic whitening system; the whitening tray. The problem with this method is how accurately the tray was made, if it slips often, the gel won't be as effective; not to mention if your saliva dilutes it, then it's not gonna work as well either.
  • Ultimate Whitening: Deep Bleaching. 'Nuff said.
  • The updated whitening system involves a more accurately made tray (but it does take longer) and it requires you to be very conscious about your oral habits. It does require touch-ups every once in a while but it is very, very effective.
  • Then there's the opalescence boost which claims to not only whiten your teeth but to actually make them healthier as a result of the extra fluoride. This procedure is fairly short and gives results in about an hour; it also doesn't dehydrate the mouth because it's a liquid.

These were just a few of the most popular Los Angeles teeth whitening techniques and systems. In reality no matter what kind of teeth whitening in Los Angeles you choose to do, if you do not take adequate care of your teeth, the Los Angeles teeth whitening won't have effect or lasting effect for that matter. Also, if you smoke, eat lots of sweets and drink soda and wine often, your teeth are probably not going to stay white for long. (As if you need another reason to quit smoking and drinking soda).
