We�d love to see your smiling face in one of our chairs this month, so that we can get your smile ready for Valentine�s Day. One effective strategy for boosting your appearance is to combine professional teeth whitening with your regular preventive dental cleaning the next time you are at our L.A. dentist�s office.
Here�s the thing: dental cleanings and examinations should be an ongoing part of your oral hygiene routine. This will build on your good work at home (with a toothbrush, dental floss, mouthwash, etc.). When you are here, we will examine you for any signs of trouble (like cavities, periodontal disease, cancer, and so forth). Plus, we will be able to eradicate any lingering plaque or tartar buildup that you might have missed through our professional cleaning techniques.
But Dr. Anderkvist can take it further with a whitening treatment.
Can I Benefit From A Teeth Whitening Treatment In L.A.?
It�s perfectly normal for our teeth to become darker, the older that we get. Beyond that, there are certain foods and beverages that are more likely to leave their marks. Red wine, coffee, tea, soda pop, and chocolate are just a few of the indulgences that can wear on our enamel. Smoking or using smokeless tobacco can also cause your teeth to become badly stained.
We can help turn things around with one of our professional whitening treatments. They are easy and affordable. What�s more, they really work! We go for only the most advanced teeth whitening with K�R and Zoom!.
K�R Extreme Whitening
KoR whitening is considered to be one of the most effective bleaching systems ever developed. The system works by boosting your teeth�s ability to absorb oxygen. Oxygen then reaches deep into the tooth to zap stain molecules. Unlike other whitening methods, K�R bleaching is effective on teeth stained by tetracycline and tobacco. The results are also permanent with regular maintenance�no need to give up your daily dose of black coffee or red wine! Importantly, most patients report little or no tooth sensitivity during and after the procedure.
Dr. Anderkvist also offers Zoom! whitening to brighten your stained or discolored teeth in one appointment. Although results do vary, most patients see a difference in the color of their teeth after just one visit. Zoom! uses a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel that is activated by a special ultraviolet lamp. We will apply the whitening gel to your teeth in three 15-minute sessions during which the gel is repeatedly removed and re-applied. We have found that Zoom! whitening works great if you have an important event coming up and you want whiter teeth without the long wait.
You Deserve It!
Like it or not, appearance matters. Having a great smile can help you succeed in both your career and personal life (remember, this month is Valentine�s Day!). We love helping patients just like YOU feel better by seeing the difference a beautiful smile can make.
Let us help you get the smile you desire with one or more of our comprehensive smile solutions. Between regular care, and a cosmetic touch-up now and again, you will be able to maintain the smile of your dreams.
