Are you unsatisfied with the colour of your teeth? Many patients express that the reflection they see in the mirror shows teeth that are not as bright as they used to be.
Why Teeth Stain
Teeth have microscopic pores that can absorb colour. Staining can occur for many reasons, including smoking or tobacco use. Your teeth can also become stained by regularly eating certain foods and beverages. Plus, teeth naturally start to darken as you age.
We have a solution!
Professional Teeth Whitening Benefits
Luckily, visiting our office for a professional whitening treatment can improve the appearance of dark, yellow, or brown-stained teeth.
Many patients appreciate a bright smile and opt for professional teeth whitening because it provides benefits that over-the-counter products do not.
- Professional teeth whitening penetrates the tiny pores in your teeth.
- Professional teeth whitening is generally safer and more effective.
- Applicator trays in pharmacy kits often do not fit well.
- Whitening pastes may be abrasive and cause sensitivity.
For these reasons, you may want to choose professional whitening instead. The whitening service provided by your dentist may consist of two phases – an in-office whitening session and a customised at-home kit to follow up.
We will take a before-and-after shade to measure your results.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Your dentist will choose whitening gel in the appropriate strength for your case, while accounting for factors like your level of sensitivity and your desired results.
This gel is typically applied using custom-made applicator trays for maximum comfort and also to protect the tissues in your mouth from becoming irritated by the whitening gel.
You can expect to see improvement in one office visit!
Custom At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you prefer to whiten your teeth at your convenience, your dentist may provide you with a custom at-home whitening kit. Your applicator trays will be made just for you, and the strength of the whitening gel will be chosen to meet your needs. You will be given specific instructions for how to use it safely and to avoid side effects.
After this kind of whitening treatment, you will typically be asked to schedule a follow-up visit with our office to check on your progress.
