Find out which teeth whitening treatment provides the longest-lasting results.

You are ready to get professional teeth whitening and you want to turn to our Lancaster, CA, general dentists Dr. Vladimir Dontsov and Dr. Anuj Patel rather than over-the-counter whitening. We’re so excited that you’re ready to take the next steps toward improving the appearance and health of your smile. Our patients often ask if professional teeth whitening is permanent. While whitening isn’t permanent here are some things you should know to get the best results out of your whitening treatment,

In-Office Whitening Offers the Most Effective and Longest Results

While no cosmetic treatment is permanent, it is our goal as your Lancaster, CA, cosmetic dentists to provide you with teeth whitening results that last as long as possible. Our in-office or chairside whitening system is incredibly powerful, taking less than one hour to remove most stains and giving you a smile that is several shades whiter. Our whitening gel can penetrate deep within the outer layers of your teeth to safely but effectively remove both external and even some internal stains.

There are Things You Can Do to Maintain Your Results

While you may not like the idea that your whiter smile won’t last forever, our patients need to know that they have some influence over how long their results last. This means that you can maintain results for up to two years with the proper care. How? Here’s what you can do to make sure your results last,

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Make sure that you step up your oral hygiene game after the whitening treatment. You should be brushing at least twice a day (for a minimum of two minutes each time) and flossing daily, but you may wish to brush your teeth after each meal or snack, or at the very least rinse your mouth out with a whitening rinse to remove food and plaque. Your oral hygiene is important for keeping teeth radiant after teeth whitening.

Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks

What you eat and drink daily can also contribute to stains. Any dark foods or beverages including coffee, tea, red wine, tomato sauce, and berries can all cause yellowing over time. It’s best to avoid these foods as much as possible if you wish to maintain your dazzling results.

Use Whitening Products

While over-the-counter whitening may not provide the same incredible results as in-office whitening this doesn’t mean that these products aren’t still helpful. If you simply wish to maintain your whiter smile, using whitening toothpaste and at-home whitening kits just to refresh your smile and to prevent new stains can be quite useful.

If you are interested in turning to our Lancaster, CA, dental team here at Dentist 4 Uninsured for professional teeth whitening, then the next step is to call our office at (661) 726-1010 to find out if this cosmetic dentistry is right for you.

With age, there’s a good chance that your teeth will begin to show signs of yellowing and staining. Your once bright, sparkling smile may begin to dull and fade. With the help of your dentists at Dentist 4 Uninsured in Lancaster, CA, you can learn about professional teeth whitening and how it can brighten up your smile!

Make Your Smile Sparkle!

You may have used over-the-counter whitening strips before, but they do not give you the results that you’d like after one use. Professional teeth whitening from your dentist in Lancaster, CA, uses a powerful formula that is offered in-office and will give you noticeable results after just one session.

Your dentist will cover your teeth with a powerful whitening gel. You’ll sit with a retractor in your mouth to keep your lips away from your teeth and the gel on your teeth for one hour before your dentist rinses it off. Whitening in-office will give you more noticeable results instantly and is a very safe procedure, with your dentist being able to protect your sensitive gums.

Your dentist also offers a take-home kit that is just as effective but will take more than one session for you to notice the results that you’ve been wanting. You’ll have a custom mold of your teeth created for the mouth trays that your dentist will provide you with. You’ll fill each tray with a whitening gel and place them over the top and bottom teeth while you sit for one hour at a time.

Want to improve your smile’s appearance? Getting cosmetic dentistry could help.

Healthy White SmileDon’t you want a smile that makes you feel confident? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Vladimir Dontsov and Dr. Anuj Patel at Dentist 4 Uninsured in Lancaster, CA, have been helping countless patients achieve the ideal smile with help from these popular cosmetic dentistry services,

  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth and gum reshaping
  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Smile makeovers

How do you know which cosmetic treatment is right for you? Well, first of all, you’ll need to sit down with our Lancaster, CA, dentist to discuss your specific needs and goals. Let us know what you wish to change about your smile and we can talk to you about the different options available. For example:

Do you have only minor flaws like a chipped or discolored tooth or a small gap between your front teeth? If so, dental bonding may be able to give you the results you want. This is the most economical and non-invasive cosmetic treatment. It involves applying a moldable tooth-colored material over these imperfections to hide them. Once the resin is shaped, we will harden it to your tooth with a laser.

Want to say goodbye to dental stains caused by coffee, red wine, tea, or certain foods? Have you noticed that your teeth have started to dull over the years due to aging? If so, teeth whitening can get your smile up to several shades whiter in just a single session. In-office whitening uses an extremely concentrated gel that can remove deep-set stains and actually visibly brighten the color of your teeth.

Dealing with one extremely pointed tooth? Embarrassed by your “gummy” smile? We can perform reshaping techniques both on your teeth and gums to easily improve the symmetry and shape. We can painlessly shave off trace amounts of enamel to smooth down a sharp or uneven tooth. We can also remove excess gum tissue to expose more of your teeth for an even smile.

Want to have a smile that’s as perfect as the actors’ smiles you see on TV and in the movies? Whether you want to enhance the shape, size, or color of your smile, dental veneers can be bonded to the front surface of your teeth to give you a completely brand new smile in just 2-3 visits. We first shave off a very small amount of enamel to make room for your veneers. Veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth and become the new outer surface. It can give you a straighter smile without having to turn to braces.

Dentist 4 Uninsured in Lancaster, CA, wants to make sure that everyone is able to afford the dental care they need for healthier, happier smiles. Whether you want to find out more about the cosmetic services we offer or you want to schedule a routine cleaning, call (661) 726-1010 to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Dontsov or Dr. Patel!
