Do I need Teeth Whitening?
No matter your dental regime, the discoloration of your teeth is bound to happen over time due to the effects of aging, your lifestyle, medications you may take or the illnesses you suffer from.
Stains that discolor your teeth can be caused by factors such as food and beverages, like coffee, tea and soda, and lifestyle choices such as drinking alcohol or smoking.
Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team. We can provide a variety of options for whitening your smile.
What is Your Method for Teeth Whitening?
Our practice uses Opalescence Whitening, a method that involves applying a gentle, carbamide peroxide gel to your teeth either in our office or at your home using special, custom-made trays that you can wear at night for your convenience. What could be easier?
Does Teeth Whitening have a Bad Taste?
The process also doesn’t have to taste bad, as the gel comes in three different flavors: mint, melon or regular. In one visit, we will apply the solution, wait for the allotted time and reveal your brighter, whiter smile. An in-office treatment really does give instant results!
What are the Types of Teeth Whitening?
There are two types of whitening processes. One is extrinsic and deals with the exterior stains on the surface of the tooth. The second is intrinsic and focuses on the discolouration on the interior of the tooth, which can be caused through aging and discolouration by infection or decay. Opalescence Whitening is an all round solution as the active whitening molecules in the gel can penetrate your tooth enamel to get rid of stubborn stains, while the oxygen molecules within the whitening agent reacts with the discolored molecules inside your tooth, to produce a truly radiant smile.
Getting Started with Teeth Whitening
Our dentists will be able to advise you on what treatment suits your specific situation and needs in the timeframe that you desire. Results do vary and crowns, fillings, veneers and bridges will not whiten, which is why it is important to have a pre-whitening consultation at our practice to fully determine what path will lead you to whiter teeth.
