Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, CA
Is your big day nearing the corner? While most brides tend to focus most on selecting a perfect, white dress, remember that a bright white smile is just as important! As a bride-to-be, you probably have a to-do that is a mile long, which is why cosmetic dentists in Scotts Valley at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry offers teeth whitening options that can have your smile sparkling in no time.
Here is what you can expect with professional teeth whitening, and why it is worth the investment as opposed to using store-bought varieties.
First, what causes teeth to stain?
Understanding what causes staining, to begin with, may help you prolong your results and enjoy a whiter smile, longer. Teeth stain as a natural part of the aging process. But, many times it is our lifestyle choices and diet that cause teeth to discolor. Take for instance the foods and beverages that you consume. All that tasty marinara, or delicious red wine, or that morning cup of joe are prone to staining your teeth. While practicing good oral hygiene that includes brushing and flossing daily, as well as getting your teeth cleaned twice a year helps reduce stains, teeth tend to become dingy at some point. Furthermore, if you are a tobacco user, the odds are stacked against you as tobacco is known to cause teeth to turn yellow.
Why is professional teeth whitening better?
These days, we all are inundated with teeth whitening products including different types of toothpaste, strips, mouthwashes, and more. These varieties make it difficult to choose the best option for you. But, let us take the worry out of it for you by saying – store-bought whitening products simply do not work for the majority of people. Not only do these products contain a weaker solution, but they are also more prone to causing teeth sensitivity, and provide subpar results that do not last.
Why waste your time and money on products that are full of empty promises? You have enough to worry about with planning your wedding without stressing over time and money spent on worthless products. Instead, professional teeth whitening in Los Gatos yields far better results than what you can get from the store.
Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry offers two types of whitening treatments:
- Zoom! whitening is an in-office product that is activated by the use of a patented light called the ZOOM! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. The whitening solution contains 25% peroxide to yield optimal results. While the light helps accelerate the peroxide, oxygen can penetrate the dental enamel and dentin, the underlayer of your teeth, to provide you with gorgeous white teeth. It takes roughly an hour to receive a full treatment. Afterward, we apply a gel to minimize potential sensitivity that may result in some patients.
- Sinsational Smile is another method of teeth whitening offered by Scotts Valley cosmetic dentists at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry. With Sinsational Smile, we use pre-filled silicone trays to apply the gel that also is accelerated by using a special UV light. In about the same amount of time or less as Zoom!, you can have a whiter smile.
Keep in mind that teeth whitening only changes the color, not the structure of your teeth. Should you wish to change the overall appearance of your teeth by correcting a gap, crookedness or otherwise imperfect teeth, we can discuss other options that we offer through our cosmetic dentistry program.
