Teeth WhiteningFind out how professional whitening could provide you with the confidence you want.

Have years of coffee drinking led you down the path to a yellowing, lifeless smile? Perhaps it’s just the natural effects of aging that are taking their toll on the color of your teeth. Whatever the case might be, our Palmdale, Lancaster, and Rosamond, CA, dentists are here to tell you that you don’t have to just put up with it. Fight back with professional teeth whitening.

Here in Palmdale, Lancaster, and Rosamond, our cosmetic dentist knows that if you want to get dazzling smile results that you can’t get from over-the-counter whitening gels then you will want to turn to professional dentistry. Here are some of the benefits of in-office whitening.

Fast Results

If you are tired of using at-home whitening night after night just waiting to see an inkling of a result, then it’s time to put down those awkward whitening trays and that weak whitening gel and turn to professional whitening to give you the results you really want. Depending on the severity of your stains, we could get your smile several shades whiter in just a single one-hour session.

Even, Uniformed Whitening

The whitening kits you get from your local drugstore offer a one-size-fits-most approach to whitening trays and the same strength of whitening gel, which doesn’t specifically cater to your individual needs and goals. Sure, one person may get great results from at-home whitening but because these whitening trays aren’t designed to fit perfectly over your teeth this could lead to uneven or only partial whitening. In our office, the whitening gel is painted evenly over the teeth to ensure that you get even and perfect results.

Tough on Stains

The whitening gels that are found in at-home whitening kits aren’t often powerful enough to tackle those more tough, set-in stains. That’s okay; our whitening gel is more than powerful enough to break up stain molecules living within the enamel and dentin layers, and often in just one whitening treatment.

Safe, Monitored Treatment

Sometimes tooth sensitivity arises with teeth whitening treatment. When you are whitening at home there really isn’t much you can do. Plus, you might not realize that you could be whitening incorrectly, which could increase the severity of your sensitivity. Instead, turn to a dentist like ours who has been specially trained to whiten teeth safely and effectively while also minimizing tooth sensitivity.

If you are ready to find out whether or not professional teeth whitening is the best approach for getting your smile back on track then it’s time to call the cosmetic dentistry experts at Pacific Dental Care. We offer four locations in West Palmdale, East Palmdale, Lancaster, and Rosamond, CA, to serve you better.

Some patients have to wait years and go to many dental appointments to get the beautiful smile that they’ve always wanted. If waiting that long simply isn’t an option for you, talk to your dentist about dental veneers. With veneers, you get a big difference in the appearance of your smile with a very small procedure that can be completed in about two or three appointments. Learn more about veneers from your Palmdale, CA dentist.Dental Veneers

What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a covering placed over the surface of a tooth to make it look more attractive, whiter and more naturally shaped. It’s commonly made of porcelain, which is a very tough and durable material that resembles natural tooth enamel. The veneer resists staining and fixes a number of common cosmetic problems, including chipping, gaps and ridges in the teeth.

What Will Happen at the Veneer Appointment?
When it’s clear that veneers can help your smile, the next step is to get your teeth prepared for them. The preparation process involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel from the front of the tooth to make room for the veneer and ensure a proper bond. Since a veneer is as thin as a contact lens, less than a millimeter of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth. The Palmdale, CA dentist will take an impression of the tooth so that a proper veneer can be made. At the final appointment, the veneer is bonded and shaped to perfection.

How Long Will this New Smile Last?
Veneers are a wonder of cosmetic dentistry not just because they give you a big difference in your smile with a small procedure, but also because they are long-lasting. Once a porcelain veneer is bonded, it can last for as long as 20 years—maybe even longer. It’s important to treat your veneers with as much TLC as your other teeth to keep them looking great for as long as possible.

How Do You Care for Veneers?
The veneer has a strong bond to your tooth, but you have to keep it clean and free from plaque buildup to ensure its ongoing health and resilience. Brush around all surfaces of the tooth and floss between the teeth daily. Avoid biting hot foods (or drinking hot beverages) with your veneers as much as possible and drink less sugary beverages. One of the most important things to remember after you get veneers is to keep up with twice-yearly appointments for cleanings and checkups.
