Don’t let a dull, discolored smile stop you from smiling! Visit Gentle Care Dentistry in the San Gabriel Valley for teeth whitening treatment from Dr. Brianne Luu.
Teeth can become discolored under the effects of a number of factors. The hard outer covering of teeth, enamel, has tiny pores into which microscopic particles from foods and beverages can travel. As debris accumulates over years, the amount of light that is reflected off enamel is gradually diminished and, consequently, teeth lose their natural brightness and luster. Some of the common causes of discoloration include red wine, dark sodas, juice, smoking, and coffee. The bad news is that we cannot fully avoid discoloration. The good news is that modern dentistry has excellent solutions that allow you to enjoy your brightest smile.
Dr. Luu offers a home whitening as well as in office whitening system for all her qualifying patients. The tooth whitening treatment begins with an exam to ensure no dental problems exist. Our goal is to improve the look and the health of our patients’ smiles.
Patients who whiten their teeth professionally can begin to see a difference after just one treatment. Each day that whitening takes place, stains are progressively lifted, and the smile becomes brighter and more attractive. Once the desired shade of white has been achieved, daily whitening can cease and touch-up treatments performed as needed to maintain results.
