The best way to show off a healthy mouth is with a beautiful white smile. At ÉLAN Dentistry, we treat people from all across La Habra, California with our range of teeth whitening services.
Benefits of teeth whitening
There are several benefits to whitening your teeth:
- A better-looking smile – a beautiful white smile makes your teeth look clean and healthy
- Better oral hygiene – your teeth will be cleaned thoroughly before whitening takes place, removing any build-up of plaque and tartar
- Boosted self-confidence – discolored teeth can cause our confidence and self-esteem to plummet, and even contribute to poor mental health. Improve your self-confidence with a white smile. Inner confidence changes the way people view and respond to you in many areas of your life.
When choosing the best option for you, we will look at the current condition and color of your teeth, desired results and budget.
Teeth whitening services available
If you’re looking for a whiter smile, quickly, then we have several options for our patients.
Whichever method you choose, it will involve using a bleaching agent on the teeth to remove stains and whiten them. Our staff are trained in professional and safe teeth whitening.
External teeth whitening
The outer layer of teeth is the enamel. This layer is translucent and allows you to see the dentin beneath, which is actually a shade of yellow. External whitening moves through the enamel and lightens the dentin to a shade of white.
To accelerate the whitening process, LED or lasers are used to get results in one appointment.
Internal teeth whitening
If a tooth becomes discolored due to a root canal or other condition, then a small section of the tooth is removed, and the bleaching agent is injected into the tooth. Once the process is complete, the is filled.
One of the quickest ways to achieve a whiter smile. Your gums are protected by a barrier and the whitening solution is applied to all teeth. A laser is used to speed up the whitening process.
Results can be seen after just one visit. Many people need only one treatment, but this is dependent on the original tooth color and desired result.
UV whitening (Zoom)
This process is similar to laser whitening but uses an LED light to accelerate the whitening process. LED whitening is suitable for those who may be more prone to tooth sensitivity after a whitening procedure. More than one session is usually needed to achieve the desired results.
At home bleaching trays
There are many whitening kits available online and in stores. At best, these are ineffective, and at worst, can permanently damage your teeth. We would not recommend that whiten teeth without the guidance of a dental professional. Elan can assess your teeth and provide at home whitening kits designed specifically for your needs.
