Alhambra Dental Plaza offers porcelain veneers to completely transform the shape, size, and even color of your teeth. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that we apply to the front sides of teeth to give them a new look. They are great for addressing issues like gaps, chips, cracks, tooth size or shape, and even discoloration that can’t be helped with whitening. Once our Periodontal Specialist bonds your veneers to your teeth, you can enjoy a lasting smile makeover that looks natural.
Whitening your teeth is a quick and easy way to take years off your smile. Teeth whitening can help with stains caused by:
- Aging enamel, which allows the more yellow dentin layer to show through
- Food and drinks, including tomato sauce, coffee, wine, and more
- Medications like antihistamines and antibiotics can discolor teeth
- Tobacco stains caused by nicotine, which yellows when exposed to oxygen
- Trauma, which causes a build-up of dentin as a protection measure
Alhambra Dental Plaza offers two different ways to whiten your teeth, so whether your schedule is booked or you have time to come see us, we can help you get a brighter, whiter smile on your terms.
Our at-home teeth whitening kits take the professional strength of in-office whitening and put it in the comfort of your own home!
Start with custom whitening trays, molded to perfectly fit your teeth. Add in the professional strength whitening gel, and you’ve got a system that is tailored to your smile and will give you a brighter smile in just a few weeks. During your initial appointment, Dr. Do will provide a schedule for your whitening to help you get to your best smile on a timeline that fits your schedule.
ZOOM!Ⓡ In-Office Whitening
If you have a special event coming up or just want to get your teeth whitened right away, consider ZOOM! in-office whitening. In a single appointment, our cosmetic specialists can make your smile up to eight shades brighter. During your visit, Dr. Do will insert gum guards to keep your soft tissues covered. Then he will apply the whitening gel and use the ZOOM! LED light in 15-minute increments to get your teeth to their ideal shade. ZOOM! is a safe and effective way to get from dull to dazzling in just a single visit to our office.
Another excellent option for teeth whitening at Alhambra Dental Plaza is the KoR Whitening system. This revolutionary whitening treatment uses a unique combination of oxygen-reactive, hydrogen peroxide-based gels that penetrate deep into your tooth enamel to remove stubborn stains. Unlike traditional whitening treatments, KoR is designed to address even the most difficult cases of staining, such as tetracycline stains.
KoR formula is designed to be refrigerated until use—delaying the degeneration of the ingredients to deliver the most potent, powerful bleaching solution. Another distinctive feature of the system is the use of custom-fitted trays designed to seal out saliva.
- Saliva can dilute and deactivate whitening gels, reducing their effectiveness.
- KoR’s trays create a barrier that keeps saliva away from the gel, maintaining the gel’s intensity throughout the whitening process. This allows the bleaching solution to work for an extended period, breaking down and removing deep-set stains more effectively.
Cosmetic Periodontal Treatment
At Alhambra Dental Plaza, we understand that a beautiful smile isn’t just about your teeth—it’s also about the appearance of your gums. That’s why we offer cosmetic periodontal procedures to address issues like a gummy smile or an uneven gum line, helping you achieve a balanced, harmonious smile that you can be proud of.
- A gummy smile occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue covers your teeth, making them appear shorter or smaller than they actually are. To correct a gummy smile, our Periodontal Specialist will perform a procedure to carefully remove and reshape excess gum tissue to reveal more of your teeth’s natural surfaces.
- An uneven gum line can detract from the overall appearance of your smile, making your teeth look misaligned or irregular. To create a more uniform gum line, our specialists will adjust the gum tissue and, in some cases, the underlying bone around your teeth to expose more of the tooth surface. This creates a more symmetrical gumline.
