Have you ever wanted to brighten your smile? Have you used whitening toothpastes and brightening products from the drugstore and gotten rid of surface stains, but nothing more? Well, if this sounds like you and if you truly want a brighter, whiter smile, professional teeth whitening is probably the best way to noticeably whiten your teeth and have lasting results. I’d like to tell you about my recent experience with professional whitening and the results that I got from it.
I was recently invited to the offices of Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Arthur Glosman for a professional teeth whitening and overall it was a pleasant experience with impressive results. First of all, I loved that Dr. Glosman’s office is intentionally filled with modern white decor, subliminally alluding to the white smiles he aspires to create. Second, Dr. Glosman is not a pretentious Beverly Hills doctor, but rather a super nice, calm, patient, down to earth, rather handsome dentist, with an enviable white smile. He takes his time with you, he instantly makes you feel at ease and confidant that you are in expert hands. And he explains every step of the procedure, optimal results and potential side effects. I liked him right from the start and instinctively knew that I was in good hands.
The whitening treatment that I got is called Zoom WhiteSpeed, it takes about 45 minutes and is applied in three 15 minute phases so that your teeth do not become over overly sensitive and uncomfortable during the process. The active ingredient in the Zoom Whitening process is hydrogen peroxide, activated with a whitening lamp, which enters the deep layers of your teeth and bleaches those hard to reach stains while leaving the structure of the tooth intact.

What did I think of my professional teeth whitening experience with Dr. Glosman?
Overall, it was a good experience, with stellar marks to Dr. Glosman and his staff for being super professional and seasoned in administering this treatment. The actual whitening process was minimally awkward (contrary to how it looks), surprisingly fast and the results were impressive. I LOVED my instant sparkly bright smile which got even brighter over time. The only negative is that I definitely experienced zingers and sensitivity in the last phase of whitening and for about 24 hours following treatment, which is totally normal just uncomfortable.
In spite of the discomfort, I would definitely rec professional whitening if you want a brighter whiter smile that lasts and that gets rid of those deeper discolorations. And if you live in LA, you will be in excellent hands with Dr. Glosman.
