To have a lightened and brighter smile can make a world of difference to one’s self-assurance and to the attractiveness of one’s teeth. If you would like to achieve this level of confidence, we invite you to visit Dr. Tran Han at Mint Dental Loft for professional teeth whitening in Altadena, California. We hope you look forward to visiting our dentist as she will gladly adhere to your cosmetic concerns. You may contact us at 626.639.8618 if you have questions.
Over time, your teeth become stained, dull and discolored due to a variety of factors, including:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Foods and drinks which stain
- Illness and certain medications
- Tobacco use, including smoking
- The natural aging process
Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective cosmetic treatments available. While there are many over-the-counter whitening products available, a professional whitening treatment will provide more effective and reliable results to improve the appearance of your teeth. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatments to help you reach your smile goals.
In-office whitening and take-home whitening both use a whitening gel. This gel is applied to the surfaces of the teeth, where it works to break down stains and discoloration on the tooth enamel. If you receive in-office whitening, this gel will be activated by a special light to speed up the treatment, allowing you to leave our office after just one appointment with a noticeably whiter and brighter smile. If you receive take-home whitening, this gel will be placed into custom whitening trays, which you will then wear as directed by our dentist. Over a period of several weeks, your teeth will gradually lighten until they reach the desired shade of white.
Please remember that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You will need to return to our office periodically to have your smile touched up in order to keep it white.
