About Teeth Whitening
Our dentists at Emigh Dental Care in Long Beach, CA understand that regular brushing and flossing may not be enough to achieve the bright smile patients desire. This is why we offer Philips Zoom in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. With an in-office laser whitening treatment, patients will be able to see their results immediately. However, if patients prefer an at-home treatment, once our office has taken an impression of the teeth for customized trays, then patients can take home one of our Zoom whitening kits. This will allow them the convenience and ease of achieving a whiter smile in the comfort of their own home and schedule. If patients are interested in Zoom teeth whitening, they should call our Southern California office today to learn more.
"My family and I have been going to Emigh Dental Care for years. EVERYONE is very courteous, helpful, and professional. All their equipment is state of the art. I have had terrific Dr. Bob and Dr. Pat as my dentists. My son schedules his appointments with Dr. Todd -- who he thinks is great! Yesterday I was introduced to Dr. Le. She is a wonderful addition to the Team!! I can't say enough about my super hygienist, Andrea! Emigh Dental Care is the whole package!!!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018
"Best dentists we have ever had. Our whole family goes there. My 7 year old daughter was petrified of the dentist after a bad experience with another dentist. We switched to the Dr. Emighs and now she is 9 years old and looks forward to going. Tammy is her favorite, but Jade and everyone is fantastic!!"- T.M. / Yelp / Apr 24, 2018

"Broke a veneer recently & made an appt. @ Emigh Dental based on all the positive reviews - the reviews don't lie - this office is great & Dr. Todd is just the best! Ended up having him replace all 6 of my prior veneers + do 2 more. The difference between my 'old' (if 7 years is old) & new veneers is like night & day! Huge relief to have found such a talented dentist - HIGHLY recommended!"- J.L. / Yelp / Apr 21, 2018

Not only has my family had the pleasure of being cared for my Dr. Robert Emigh, now we have the pleasure of being cared for by his two sons Dr. Pat and Dr. Todd to carry on the family tradition. What a wonderful blessing they all are, to all of us to take such good care of us. You can always get an emergency appointment and get in immediately to be cared for. Thank you for continuous Service."- D.P. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
What to Expect
Before starting a teeth whitening treatment, a thorough examination is conducted by our dentists to assess the teeth, including the condition of the enamel. Based on the exam, the appropriate method will be thoroughly discussed with the patient and selected. It’s important for patients to understand that if enamel is in overall poor condition, the teeth will be too sensitive for teeth whitening to work. Our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers, which achieve teeth whitening by bonding a custom-made veneer over the natural tooth. For patients whose mouths are in good condition, there are several teeth whitening options available.
Philips Zoom White Speed
Zoom White Speed is an in-office treatment that uses a laser to activate a specifically-formulated whitening gel. Once the whitening gel is applied to the teeth, a laser will be used to break down the stains that have diminished teeth’s whiteness. The entire process takes around 45 minutes and patients immediately notice that their teeth are several shades whiter after just one treatment. However, subsequent treatments may be needed to maintain the ideal whiteness.
Philips Zoom Take Home Trays
For patients looking to gradually whiten their teeth, our dentists can offer take home trays. After the initial dental exam, our dentists can provide custom-made trays designed to fit their teeth for more even whitening. With Zoom DayWhite, patients will fill the tray with the bleaching cream and wear it twice a day for about 30 minutes. DayWhite is safe, effective, and not only whitens, but also rebuilds enamel and reduces teeth sensitivity. Zoom NiteWhite offers faster results since it’s worn overnight for 2 – 4 hours. Full results can be reached in about 2 weeks.
While no teeth whitening option is permanent, results can last several years. The results of laser treatments last the longest at 3 – 4 years. In some cases, results can last more than 5 years. With in-home treatments, patients can expect results to last a couple of years. Whitening is extended through proper care such as regular brushing with recommended toothpastes, flossing, and appropriate mouthwashes. Regular check-ups should be part of this routine, since regular professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar. In addition, patients should limit foods and drinks like berries, tea, coffee, and soda that stain teeth.
