Make Your Smile Brilliant with Luminous Smiles

Whether it’s crowns & bridges or laminates & veneers, one of the most popular cosmetic treatments is teeth whitening. This a great way to improve the overall look of your smile.

Some patients have seen improvements by as many as 5 to 10 shades! At Luminous Smiles, our Newport Beach dentist has extensive experience performing teeth whitening services, and we are committed to staying up to date with the latest innovations. If you are dissatisfied with the color of your teeth, we can help.

Want to Erase Years of Stains

While our teeth naturally darken as we age, many of the foods we consume have a negative impact on the appearance of our teeth. Furthermore, there are some medications that can also cause our teeth to darken or yellow. Many people think there is nothing they can do about the discoloration or staining on their teeth, but there are options. Professional teeth whitening is one of them.

Common foods that can discolor or stain our teeth include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Soda
  • Berries
  • Pasta sauce
  • Curries

Generally speaking, if your teeth and gums are healthy, teeth whitening is an option. However, if you have sensitive teeth or other oral health issues, it is a good idea to discuss these with a dentist. A knowledgeable dentist familiar with teeth whitening can help you determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

After your teeth have been polished and your gums are protected, your dentist will apply the whitening solution to your teeth, where it will be activated and sit for several minutes. The whitening solution will then be washed away with water. While the results will differ for every person, most patients see a difference of several shades.

Maintaining Your Teeth After You Have Received a Whitening Treatment

After you’ve had a whitening treatment, it’s important that you take good care of your teeth to ensure that you get the most out of the procedure. Initially, you should avoid beverages like coffee, tea, and wine, all of which are acidic and highly pigmented. You should also maintain good oral health, brush and floss regularly, and don’t skip your routine check-ups and cleanings. Our cosmetic dentist in Newport Beach is standing by to answer all your questions. Our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist, Dr. Desai can help you get the most out of your teeth whitening treatment.

If you live in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach or the surrounding communities, Luminous Smiles can help you with your teeth whitening needs. Contact us today at (949) 247-8484
