Teeth Whitening with Zoom!

August 22, 2013

teeth whiteningFew people have a naturally bright smile. That’s because so many things we run into on a daily basis can cause stains—things like coffee, tea, red wine, juice, and soda, for instance. Tobacco use also contributes, as does aging. All of which explains why teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dentistry services offered by Westside Dental Associates.

Teeth whitening with Zoom! is easy and yields amazing results. With just one appointment, you can expect to see your smile brightened by anywhere between 6 to 10 shades.

How does Zoom! work?

It starts with us making sure you’re comfortably seated. We’ll put a protective cover over your lips and gums, and then apply the special Zoom! Whitening gel to your teeth. A low-heat lamp will activate the gel, which, over the course of an hour, will penetrate the enamel and dentin in your teeth to remove stains and discoloration. When we’re all done, we’ll finish your visit by applying a fluoride treatment to your teeth to give them special protection.

That’s all there is to it!

Call Westside Dental Associates to find out more about teeth whitening and our other cosmetic and restorative solutions. Dr. Latner whitens smiles from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, Mar Vista, and beyond.

A Brighter Smile Goes the Extra Mile

A Brighter Smile Goes the Extra Mile – Teeth WhitenDr. Latner DIAGNOdent Los Angelesing with Les Latner

During a first date or job interviews, first impressions are everything. Not just in your demeanor, but appearance as well. In the first few seconds of meeting someone, that person will formulate an opinion of you based on body language. If you want it to be a positive one, you’d be remiss without flashing a smile. Smiling puts others at ease and shows you as a friendly person. Now everyone wants to be the best they can be and you should strive for quality in everything about yourself. So when it comes to a smile, why not make it the best it can be?


A main effect of teeth whitening is a sharp increase in social status, as crazy as that sounds. It boosts a person’s aesthetics, which in turn can lead to success in climbing the corporate ladder and finding Mr. or Mrs. Right. In addition to increasing an outsider’s perceived value of you, it can boost your self-confidence immensely. By having a positive self-image, you’re more likely to step outside your comfort zone, which is usually where success resides. It’s important to note, however, that whitening teeth can have positive effects on a person other than a massive ego boost.

Professional teeth whitening materials can kill the bacteria that cause gum disease as well as those that cause tooth decay, leading to all-around healthier teeth. Gum disease isn’t something to be taken lightly, as it is responsible for receding gums, increased sensitivity to temperature changes and touch, pain, and inflammation. So by taking preventative measures you may just be saving yourself a whole lot of trouble with little effort by taking the time to take care of your smile.

Of course teeth whitening is far from the easiest method of protecting your teeth. In fact it may be the last thing on your mind when it comes to looking after them. Brushing, using mouthwash, even (yikes!) flossing comes to mind before deciding to do it. After whitening, however, you may be more motivated to continue taking care of your mouth. So if you want to take that extra step and look amazing while helping yourself, then teeth whitening is the thing for you! Westside Dental Associates and Les Latner DDS offers this quality service that will not leave you disappointed.

Cosmetic Dentistry in time for Valentine’s Day

January 28, 2013

Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your confidence and look your best this February 14th, consider cosmetic dentistry. The cosmetic dentistry services Dr. Latner provides can help you whiten and straighten your teeth, creating a smile you’ll want to share with others.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Our teeth whitening options include both Zoom! in-office whitening and a professional take-home whitening kit. Both produce professional results, but there are differences. Zoom! Whitening whitens teeth in just one appointment, while take-home whitening lets us brighten your smile in the comfort of your home, on your own schedule. For the best results, Zoom! in-office whitening and take-home whitening should be used together.

For adult patients who want a straighter smile, Dr. Latner provides different options. Invisalign is a great option. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear trays made of acrylic. Because Invisalign’s trays are nearly invisible, your care will be more discreet. What’s more, treatment is often faster and more comfortable. Dr. Latner also offers Six Month Smiles. If you’d like a straighter smile in just six to eight months, Six Month Smiles may be the right treatment option for you.

For patients who want a whiter and straighter-looking smile, porcelain veneers are a popular option. Veneers use thin pieces of porcelain to improve the appearance of front teeth. The result is a dazzling smile that looks naturally beautiful.

Which service is right for you? Is it one of these, or is it another service from the list above? For an answer to that question, call Westside Dental Associates for an appointment with Dr. Latner. Our team is dedicated to creating beautiful smiles for Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Dr. Latner Creates Dazzling Smiles with Zoom! Whitening

April 9, 2012

If you’ve ever dreamed of a whiter smile, you may have tried to make your dream a reality with over-the-counter whitening products. Over-the-counter whitening  products rarely produce the kind of stunning results you’re looking for, though. That’s why, at Dr. Latner’s Los Angeles office, we offer Zoom! Whitening. With Zoom! patients can get a dazzling, confident look that brightens their smile by close to 10 shades.

What’s more, patients have two convenient options to choose from—in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening.

The advantage of in-office whitening is that it lets patients get their teeth at their brightest in just one hour. This is especially good news if you’ve got a special event coming up, like a wedding or a job search.

Take-home whitening, can be done in the privacy of your own home and is especially good for patients who’ve experience sensitivity with in-office teeth whitening. Plus, take-home whitening is also good for touching up your smile and keeping it white weeks and months after in-office treatment.

Would you like to find out more about how teeth whitening can change your smile and improve your confidence? Call Dr. Latner’s Los Angeles office today to schedule an appointment with us. Dr. Latner would be happy to answer your questions and help you get started on your way to a brighter, more confident smile.

Reenergize Your Smile with a Smile Makeover from Westside Dental Associates

February 14, 2012

You want to look and feel your best, but you’re nervous about showing the world your smile. At Westside Dental Associates, we understand these fears and can help.

Dr. Latner is a cosmetic dentist and one of the few accredited members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. And to help patients have the brightest, most dazzling smiles possible, our Los Angeles dental office features four great cosmetic procedures: porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign clear braces, and cosmetic bonding. With any of these services combined, you can finally have the smile makeover you’ve always dreamed of.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Patients who wish they had a brighter smile will be happy to know that our Los Angeles office has two options. With both in-office Zoom! and take-home teeth whitening options, we can ensure reliable and long-lasting results that will improve self-confidence by whitening teeth by 6-10 shades.

For patients whose greatest concern might be misaligned teeth, two options may help: porcelain veneers and Invisalign clear braces. Each one meets a different need but both can help patients restore the appearance of their smile by creating straighter, more confident smiles.

Porcelain veneers can also help patients who have teeth that are cracked, chipped, misshapen, or oddly spaced. By covering them with durable, natural-looking porcelain veneers (or single-visit cosmetic bonding), Dr. Latner can restore both patient confidence and appearance.

Do you want to find out more about how Westside Dental Associates can transform your smile? Call us today to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Latner. We’d be happy to discuss all your options with you at our Los Angeles dental office and recommend a treatment for you.

Dazzle Your Friends and Family with a Whiter Smile from Westside Dental Associates

February 10, 2012

When you feel confident about your teeth, you feel more confident about sharing your smile with others. But if you have stained teeth, smiling may be the last thing on your mind.

Teeth stains have a variety of causes. Chief among them are tobacco smoking, aging, and drinks like coffee, tea, soda, or red wine. Certain medications like tetracycline can even contribute to the formation of stains.

You don’t have to live with teeth stains, though. General, restorative, and cosmetic dentist Dr. Latner provides teeth whitening services for patients in Los Angeles and surrounding areas through Zoom! Whitening.

With Zoom! Whitening, patients can enjoy a smile that’s as much as 6 to 10 shades brighter, and all after just a single one-hour visit to Westside Dental Associates. And with occasional touch-ups with your custom-fitted take-home trays, it’s possible for patients to enjoy their dazzling smile indefinitely. In addition to supplying you with custom-fitted trays, Dr. Latner will also give you a supply of professional whitening gel, and all the information you’ll need in order to touch-up your smile on your own time and in your own home.
