Tooth Whitening and Your Dentist

Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in California. It seems that everyone in Sherman Oaks is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers in the Sherman Oaks area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth, however there can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.

Here is some basic advice on tooth whitening from Sherman Oaks Dental:

First, we encourage you to visit our office in Sherman Oaks before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program. Tooth whitening is not for everyone, and depends on your dental history.

Dr. Bjornbak at Sherman Oaks Dental can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend tooth whitening solutions that will work best for you. Sherman Oaks Dental is a good place to start for this important decision.  They offer professional in-office Zoom whitening.

There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Sherman Oaks area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly, tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.

Most tooth whitening product manufacturers recommend that you visit your local Sherman Oaks cosmetic dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the caring and professional professionals at Sherman Oaks Dental to get started with a tooth whitening solution that will give you the best tooth whitening results.

Our office is located at 4849 Van Nuys Boulevard, Suite 101, in Sherman Oaks, CA. Please give us a call or stop by to make an appointment to discuss your tooth whitening plans. We are eager to help you make the best decision about your teeth whitening.

Our caring and professional is available to discuss tooth whitening solutions, explain tooth whitening options, and check your teeth to make sure you will get the tooth whitening results you want.

I look forward to seeing your beautiful bright smile.
