Teeth Whitening and Teeth Cleaning in Inglewood
Many Inglewood residents feel self-conscious and believe that their smiles are not bright enough. They feel embarrassed by the fact that their teeth are not as white as they used to be anymore and feel that soft drinks, coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco have stained their teeth and made them look dull and discolored. To help restore smiles and to boost the confidence of Inglewood residents, KB Dental, run by dentists Dr. Kaleka and Dr. Brar, include teeth cleaning and teeth whitening as part of the services they provide. Both procedures are safe, uncomplicated and affordable. They are described briefly below:


1.) Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is a quick, simple and painless procedure that dentists Dr. Kaleka and Dr. Brar from KB Dental, in Inglewood, now offer. It involves removing tartar and mineral deposits that build up on the teeth, that brushing and flossing failed to remove. Instruments called "scalers" are used to clean the teeth. The teeth are then polished to look and feel smooth and clean. The dentists also apply fluoride to the teeth once they have been cleaned, as fluoride helps strengthen them. The Inglewood dentists strongly recommend that teeth cleaning be done at least twice a year for it to be as effective as possible. Regular teeth cleaning helps keep teeth clean and prevent cavities, tartar build-up, bad breath and gum disease.


2.) Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening involves applying a bleaching or whitening gel to the teeth using trays. This gel oxidizes teeth and makes them look at least four to five shades whiter. Teeth whitening procedures are quite affordable in Inglewood and the entire procedure takes anything from a few days to a few weeks to complete. Though there are many do-it-yourself teeth whitening products commercially available, teeth whitening is best done under the supervision of a qualified dentist since incorrect applications of teeth whitening products can lead to tooth sensitivity, gum disease and other side effects. The effect of teeth whitening usually lasts for over a year. It can be repeated again after consultation with the dentists.
