Orange County's top-rated family and cosmetic dentist

You may have heard some common misconceptions about teeth whitening, for example that it damages your teeth. Perhaps you believe this common type of cosmetic dental work will harm your tooth enamel. This is not true at all! When bleaching is done correctly, your teeth will be much whiter and your tooth enamel will remain healthy.


However, all whitening is not the same. When you want healthy, white teeth, it’s better to avoid home whitening products and have whitening done at your dentist’s office.


At-home whitening may not bring the results you want. Some products are complicated, and some may cause sensitivity. In most cases, results from home whitening do not last very long, which is why we recommend professional teeth whitening.


You will be more than satisfied with our teeth whitening service. You will have a good experience, and long-lasting results. You’ll be delighted with your bright, white teeth after you leave Reflection Dental. Some easy tips can help your teeth stay white after the procedure:


  • Be conscientious with your home oral care routines. Brush your teeth at least twice each day, and floss at least once per day.
  • Use the oral care products that are right for you. When you come in for teeth whitening, you can ask Dr. Akhavan for advice.
  • Avoid foods and beverages that cause stains. Black coffee and tea, cola, red wine, berries, tomato sauce, and many other popular products can ruin the effects of your newly-whitened teeth. During your appointment, ask for a list of foods and beverages that you should not eat and drink.
  • Do not use tobacco products. Whether you smoke or chew, tobacco will stain your teeth. If you use any tobacco products, quit before you have your teeth whitened. You do not want to ruin that beautiful new smile with tobacco.


There are many reasons your teeth are not as white as they were in the past. Some people find their teeth become dull and stained because of their diets, smoking, or poor oral hygiene. Certain medications, and natural aging, can also be responsible.


Regardless of the reason your teeth are not white, you will see a dramatic difference after our teeth whitening procedure. The minor sensitivity you may experience will disappear within hours. You will be happy to show off your new smile at work, at home, and when you socialize with friends.


You can have a smile to be proud of, and the confidence that accompanies a nicer appearance. Start by calling Reflection Dental at 949-493-7007 to schedule an appointment.
