What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that helps brighten your smile. It uses ingredients, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to cut through stains, restoring your teeth to a more youthful condition.

Why do teeth change color?

Teeth naturally change color as you age. That’s because activities like biting and chewing cause your enamel to wear away, revealing more of the yellow dentin underneath.

Other factors that may contribute to tooth stains include:

  • Drinking coffee
  • Eating certain foods (i.e., berries or tomato-based sauces)
  • Using tobacco
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Taking a medication with tetracycline

Tooth discoloration may also occur as a result of trauma, like a fall or a blow to the mouth.

What are the types of teeth whitening?

At Sherman Oaks Smile Studio, Dr. Zarabian and the team offer several types of teeth whitening, including:

Philips Zoom!®

Philips Zoom! is the number one teeth whitening treatment on the market. One in-office session can make your smile up to eight shades* brighter.

During treatment, Dr. Zarabian applies a whitening gel to your teeth. After the gel sits for about 20 minutes, she uses a special light to trigger a whitening reaction. Dr. Zarabian repeats the same steps several times, until achieving your desired results.

Take-home teeth whitening trays

Take-home teeth whitening makes it easy to brighten your smile at home. Each take-home teeth whitening kit has two plastic mouthpieces and a bottle of whitening solution. You line each mouthpiece with the whitening solution and wear them for several hours a day, whenever it’s convenient.

Touch-up teeth whitening treatment

If you undergo Zoom teeth whitening and want to maintain your results, Dr. Zarabian and the team might recommend touch-up visits. Touch-ups prevent stains from recurring, ensuring your smile remains pearly white for years to come.

How do I maintain the results of teeth whitening?

To maintain the results of teeth whitening, you need to practice good oral hygiene. The team at Sherman Oaks Smile Studio recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing regularly, and visiting Dr. Zarabian every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.
