When teeth are yellow, it's tempting to rinse with hydrogen peroxide to enhance the shade of enamel. Perhaps you've purchased over-the-counter whitening strips, but develop sensitivity and find the results disappointing. Teeth acquire stains from the foods we eat and the beverages we love to drink - such as wine, coffee, tea, and soda. If you don't adequately brush away the plaque and particles left behind, you'll require assistance from Dr. Navasart Kazazian of New Smile Dental Group to say goodbye to your dental stains. To begin your journey to a brighter smile, schedule a consultation in our Glendale, CA, office, and discuss how you can benefit from professional teeth whitening.
What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
After Dr. Kazazian examines the condition of your teeth and gums, he'll determine if you're a candidate for professional teeth whitening. This procedure is among the most popular when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, and you can expect to sit back and relax before, during, and after it's over. He'll insert a safe and effective whitening gel into custom trays that are made to fit your teeth. The gel sits on the teeth for up to 60 minutes, while you catch up on your favorite show, or read a book.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Keeping teeth white won't only enhance your appearance. It'll boost your confidence, self-esteem, and potentially improve your social behaviors. Our Glendale, CA, patients choose to have their teeth stains removed by a professional because:
- A radiant smile is a healthy one
- Whitening kills bacteria that causes gum disease
- Results are immediate and long-lasting
If you're interested in improving the tint of your teeth, Dr. Navasart Kazazian gives patients the option of whitening in-office or the comfort of their home. You'll receive custom whitening trays, gel, and instructions to follow to ensure a successful outcome.

Don’t hide your smile from the world. Get the smile you deserve with veneers.
Chances are good that you’ve heard about dental veneers and have probably associated this cosmetic dentistry with celebrities; however, maybe you don’t quite understand what they are or what they can do for your smile. Our Glendale, CA, cosmetic dentist Dr. Navasart Kazazian offers a variety of solutions to hide problems in your smile to give you the perfect set of teeth, and dental veneers have become a popular solution.
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are thin shells made from medical-grade porcelain, which mimics the look of real tooth enamel. Instead of covering the entire visible part of a tooth like a dental crown does, veneers are bonded only to the front surface of a tooth to create an additional and more beautiful outer layer.
What problems can veneers fix?
Our Glendale dentist will take impressions of your teeth to ensure that each veneer covers a tooth perfectly and provides the ideal fit while also hiding the imperfections that make you feel embarrassed about your smile. These problems include,
Discolorations and stains
If you are dealing with severe or widespread tooth discoloration you may be wondering if veneers can help. The veneers that are crafted for you are also tailored to the shade you want, which ensures that you get perfectly vibrant but natural results. Veneers best hide discolorations that don’t respond to teeth whitening. Even better, veneers are stain resistant, so you won’t have to worry about them developing stains.
Chips and cracks
Maybe you have a slight chip or crack in a tooth that doesn’t affect the integrity or strength of the tooth but certainly seems to alter the overall shape and size of your smile. Even these minor imperfections can make you hide your teeth in embarrassment. Luckily, veneers can easily cover these flaws so you have chip-less teeth once more.
Unevenly shaped teeth
Sometimes we have one tooth that sticks out from the rest or throws your whole smile off kilter. If this is a problem that you are dealing with then veneers may be able to reshape your teeth to give you a more uniformed smile. Veneers can make your smile appear more symmetrical.
Gaps between teeth
Crooked teeth or misalignments in your smile can also be embarrassing. Small gaps between teeth or minor overlapping may not seem like a big enough problem to actually warrant getting braces but veneers can help your smile look straighter and more aligned. Cover gaps and make teeth appear straighter with these porcelain shells.
If you are wondering if veneers are right for you then ask one of our Glendale, CA, dentist to learn more. Call New Smile Dental Group today at (818) 547-4398 to schedule a consultation.
There are many ways to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. There are procedures for repairing damaged teeth, brightening your smile, and improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic flaws. At New Smile Dental Group, Dr. Navasart Kazazian and Dr. Apel Keuroghlian can help you select the right procedures to achieve the smile you desire in Glendale, CA.
Cosmetic Bonding & Contouring
Cosmetic bonding is a method for repairing teeth that are chipped or cracked, which cosmetic contouring can improve the appearance of teeth that are misshaped. Bonding can be used to seal cracks in teeth and fill in areas where teeth have been chipped. A resin material is applied over the chipped or cracked areas, and once dry, the resin is permanently bonded to the tooth and the chip or crack is no longer visible. Contouring is used to reshape your teeth by removing small areas of enamel until the tooth is reshaped as desired.
Dental crowns can be used to strengthen and restore teeth, as well as improve their appearance. Crowns are placed over problem teeth like caps. Once a dental crown is in place, the problem tooth is completely encapsulated by the crown. Dental crowns look just like natural teeth, but without any flaws. Your Glendale, CA, cosmetic dentists at New Smile Dental Group can help you decide if dental crowns are right for you.
Porcelain veneers can give cosmetically flawed teeth an entirely new look. Veneers are thin covers placed over the front surface of teeth to conceal imperfection, such as stains, discolorations, chips, or cracks. Veneers are custom made for a perfect fit. Additionally, the porcelain material used to make veneers looks strikingly like tooth enamel for a completely natural look.
Tooth-colored fillings are a discreet alternative to metal fillings because they blend in with the natural teeth. A composite resin material is used to create tooth-colored fillings. The resin can be color-matched to your existing teeth, so no one will notice you have fillings.
Professional teeth whitening treatments are one of the easiest ways to improve your smile. Both in-office and take-home whitening treatments are available at New Smile Dental Group. Both types of treatments utilize a professional strength bleaching agent to whiten and brighten teeth. Professional treatments deliver superior whitening results to over-the-counter products and the results last longer.
