Teeth Whitening Oxnard, CA

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental treatment that safely, and effectively takes years off the appearance of a smile. Teeth whitening is cost effective and provides quick and highly effective results. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Haddad offers patients take-home and in-office ZOOM! teeth whitening options that can improve aesthetics for a more confident smile.

Before treatment, Dr. Haddad will provide patients with a thorough oral health exam to determine which whitening option will best meet their cosmetic goals and fit their lifestyle and budget. Teeth whitening is FDA approved and can safely whiten teeth up to 8 shades in one visit to our Oxnard, dentist office.

Discolored Teeth

Teeth become stained for many reasons. Diet, lifestyle habits, and certain medications can all cause teeth to become discolored or yellow. The yellow appearance is caused by the exposure of the dentin. As the enamel of the tooth erodes, dentin, the next layer of tooth material, becomes visible. Dentin has a natural yellow color.
The most common causes of tooth discoloration are:

  • Aging
  • Enamel Erosion
  • Coffee, Tea, Soda & Wine
  • Tobacco Use

Tetracycline, certain antibiotics, or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration. This type of discoloration may be resistant to teeth whitening gels. Dr. Haddad offers cosmetic alternatives such as porcelain veneers and tooth bonding to treat discoloration caused by medication or trauma.

Teeth Whitening: What to Expect

At Home Teeth Whitening

At-home teeth-whitening kits offer patients convenience and results. After a comprehensive oral health exam, Dr. Haddad will custom design and fabricate a set of plastic trays. These bleaching trays are filled with professional grade bleaching gel and are worn by the patient at night. Because the trays are custom fit to the patient’s teeth they provide precise results with less gum irritation than over the counter options.

Take-home teeth whitening allows patients to gradually whiten teeth in the comfort of their own home for natural and subtle results. Take-home whitening kits are cost effective and provide a wide range of patients the opportunity to brighten their smiles.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

In about one hour Zoom! can whiten teeth up to 8 shades. This in-office treatment option offers dramatic and beautiful results in no time at all.

Zoom! treatments are virtually pain-free and require no downtime. Gels are specially designed to reduce tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Dr. Haddad may recommend that patients avoid tobacco products, coffee, tea, or red wine to prevent new staining.
