Ice cream, cookies and steak. YUMMY! We all love sweets and delicious food, but, unfortunately, some of the most delicious foods are often responsible for serious health problems and can damage our teeth.
I know how important your appearance is to many aspects of your life. We all want to look and feel our best and sometimes the food we love can affect that.
That is why I am happy to offer teeth whitening to all of my Monrovia patients!
Let’s face it, we all grow and age and our smiles were not as bright as they were when we were young. Natural aging is certainly a cause of having a less bright smile, but eating and drinking items like:
can attribute to discolored teeth with a yellowish shade that you aren’t proud to show off.
First, if you are a smoker, I highly recommend you quit! Smoking cannot only lead to yellow teeth, but also more serious conditions such as oral cancer. I offer complimentary oral cancer screenings when you come into our office, but again, you should really quit smoking.
Monrovia patients who smoke cigarettes are very likely to have discolored teeth and need teeth whitening.
If you’re ready to receive teeth whitening, the first step is to schedule an appointment with my office in the Monrovia area by calling (626) 599-9819. During your appointment, I will perform a thorough oral examination to determine if there are any other serious conditions that need to be addressed. During this appointment, I will also be looking to see if teeth whitening is right for you. You may find it hard to believe, but teeth whitening is not for all Monrovia patients! This includes:
After the exam, I will review the benefits and rare risks of teeth whitening so that you fully understand everything before committing to whitening. I want to make sure you’re fully aware of everything before committing to having your teeth whitened!
Once you and I decide that teeth whitening is right for you, our friendly staff will schedule an appointment to have the procedure done in our office in the Monrovia area. The entire treatment will last one hour. However, I may recommend a few additional sessions depending on how many shades whiter you want your teeth to be.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that will not require any anesthesia, local or otherwise. Once you settle into our comfortable dental chairs, I will begin the procedure by:
I would love to be able to say there is no downside with teeth whitening, but some patients will have sensitive teeth, which can be quite uncomfortable. This feeling is only temporary and will go away in a few hours or days.
While we all want beautiful, white teeth all year long, I recommend that you do not overuse teeth whitening. At your appointment, I will work with you to determine a whitening schedule that enhances your teeth’s appearance while maintaining a healthy smile.
