If you’ve been thinking about investing in a professional teeth whitening treatment or another cosmetic improvement to your smile, the start of a new year is a great incentive to finally go ahead and take the plunge! And if it’s been more than six months since your last visit to the dentist for a checkup and dental cleaning, it’s the perfect opportunity to get your oral health on track in the process.
At the Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry, our dentist Dr. Ramin Mahallati, and our dental team offer restorative and cosmetic dentistry services at our office in Beverly Hills, California.
New year’s resolutions are a yearly rite of passage, but keeping them can be challenging for most people. From losing weight to learning a new skill or making major lifestyle changes, most of us start the new year with the best of intentions and motivation, only to get sidetracked or distracted by the realities of everyday life once the holidays come to an end.
The good news is that making small changes and investments in yourself can deliver significant benefits and rewards. If your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like them to be, a professional teeth whitening treatment is a fast and effective way to dramatically improve your smile in as little as a single visit to our office.
Professional teeth whitening treatments are more effective and deliver faster results than store-bought options. If you want to significantly whiten your teeth by several shades, a professional treatment is the way to go. You can choose a single in-office treatment or the at-home version, which is applied over a few weeks to gradually whiten your teeth.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening products like toothpaste, gels, and strips can deliver results, but they may not get your teeth as white as you want, and some products may contain abrasive ingredients that can cause tooth sensitivity or even damage the enamel, making your teeth more vulnerable to more staining in the future.
Surface teeth whitening treatments only work on certain types of dental stains. Therefore, in some cases, porcelain veneers are a better option.
If you’re not sure which option is right for you, Dr. Mahallati and our team will help you decide which method will work best for your goals.
Along with improving your smile and boosting your confidence, whitening your teeth can have several secondary benefits as well. Many people find that investing in teeth whitening is a great incentive to eat better to avoid new stains, quit smoking, keep up with or restart a solid oral hygiene routine, or be more active and social!
