How to Create a More Confident Smile

how to create more confident smile


You only get one chance to make a first impression, but you’re too embarrassed by your stained or misaligned to show a confident smile.

Fortunately, it’s never been easier to choose from a wide range of dental treatments designed to whiten, brighten, and straighten your teeth. Professional teeth whitening, crowns, and veneers are three of the most popular options available.

Find out which dental treatment offers your best path to a more confident smile.


Professional Teeth Whitening

If it can stain a white t-shirt, it can stain your teeth. Dark drinks, smoking, and berries are all main culprits in the battle against tooth discoloration. While you can prevent some future staining by avoiding soda, coffee, and red wine, existing discoloration can only be removed with a professional teeth whitening treatment.

Zoom, for example, is an industry-leading professional whitening treatment that targets outer and inner stains. Outer stains appear on enamel as a result of dark foods, beverages, and smoking. Inner discoloration, on the other hand, develops when the core structure of the tooth, called the dentin, becomes dark or yellowed from medications or genetic conditions.

Zoom removes unsightly stains with a unique bleaching formula that lightens the dentin and enamel of each tooth in your mouth. Zoom’s formula includes a 25% hydrogen peroxide component, which is strong enough to lift away stains but gentle enough not to cause pain or discomfort.

Zoom takes it a step further with a mercury metal halide light. This light further activates the gel and expedites the whitening process. It contains a unique infrared filter that works to reduce the amount of heat and sensitivity on the surface of the teeth during your whitening procedure.

If you want whiter teeth with the shortest amount of time spent in the dentist’s chair, Zoom is your best choice. In fact, Zoom sets itself apart from other teeth whitening systems with these significant benefits:

  • All teeth are treated together
  • Faster treatment times
  • Longer lasting results
  • Less sensitivity than other procedures
  • Stains can be removed from veneers, crowns, and other restorations
  • Safe treatment procedure

Since all Zoom treatments are performed by experienced and highly qualified professionals at North Brand Dental, you can trust that you’ll get the best results.


Dental Crowns

Professional teeth whitening is a popular option for cosmetic imperfections, but it can’t address damaged or injured teeth. If you have a tooth that’s misshapen, decaying, or injured, a dental crown is a better option for you.

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over your damaged tooth to improve its strength and structure. Standard crowns are created in a lab using an impression of your existing tooth, then cemented into place over your damaged tooth. CEREC technology accelerates this process by completing the entire crown procedure in just one hour.

CEREC technology guarantees that your crown is precisely customized to your exact tooth. All CEREC crowns are attractive and blend right in with your teeth, so nobody can even see that you have a crown at all! This is an excellent restorative option if you need to seal and cover a tooth that’s too damaged for a simple cavity treatment.



Veneers improve the appearance of your smile by covering all of the imperfections you don’t want others to see. Each veneer is a very thin, custom-made shell that’s customized to fit perfectly over an individual tooth. The number of veneers you receive and the material of the veneer depends on the condition of your mouth and your unique dental preferences.

If you’re experiencing any of the following dental issues, veneers could be the best solution for you:

  • Uneven teeth caused by grinding or general wear and tear
  • Discoloration that teeth whitening cannot repair
  • Unwanted spaces between the teeth
  • Dull or worn enamel
  • Small chips or cracks

Most patients prefer porcelain veneers because their translucence closely mimics the look and feel of real teeth. Porcelain veneers are also highly durable with a lifespan of nearly 20 years!

The most common porcelain veneer procedure takes place over two visits. During the first visit, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth to use as a guide when customizing your veneers. You’ll then work with your Glendale, CA dentist to identify the best natural color shade for your teeth.

Once you’re certain that porcelain veneers are the best choice, your dentist gently shaves away a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This makes space for the veneers to be placed and provides a rough surface for the adhesive application.

Your second visit takes place after your porcelain veneers are created. They’re etched, rinsed, and placed onto each individual tooth with a strong, permanent adhesive. Since each veneer is designed to achieve an exact fit with your tooth, porcelain veneers are always comfortable and attractive.
