Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office is a true cosmetic procedure. Dental services, such as white fillings or porcelain crowns, may have a cosmetic benefit; however, they are primarily used to restore the health and function of a tooth weakened by decay or other trauma.
Dr. Joyce Kahng is a highly respected cosmetic dentist based in Costa Mesa, California. As such, she is a natural choice for cosmetic dental procedures. With her considerable expertise and artistic skill, Dr. Kahng assures that your teeth whitening experience at Orange And Magnolia Dental Studio gets desirable results and is comfortable and safe.
The products you can buy online or at the store may claim to whiten teeth. Yet, you may have found that they did not live up to their promises. OTC products tend to not contain clinically proven ingredients to whiten teeth. Additionally, active whitening ingredients may not be sufficiently concentrated to lighten the color of the teeth.
Moreover, OTC products can be uncomfortable and cause damage. One-size-fits-all whitening trays can slip around. These trays may rub up against delicate tissues. The whitening gel can also leak and irritate oral tissues. Products may cause painful tooth sensitivity.
Dentists like Dr. Kahng carefully plan professional whitening procedures. In turn, dental professionals can account for patient-specific needs; for instance, whitening gels or the concentration of those gels may be customized to minimize tooth sensitivity.
In addition to being clinically proven to whiten teeth, professional products are clinically proven to be safe. If Dr. Kahng determines that home whitening with whitening trays is the best option for you, trays will be customized to fit the contours of your mouth. That way, they don’t slip around and damage delicate tissues. Furthermore, the whitening gel is sealed into place to not leak. This feature of professional whitening trays supports both the safest and most comfortable experience, as well as the even whitening that looks attractive and natural.
We at Orange And Magnolia Dental Studio use Opalescence™, GLO, and KöR® systems.
