Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lacklustre. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural colour of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural colour if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for this type of whitening!
Your wedding is coming up and you want your smile to be its brightest. Or maybe you have an important speaking engagement. Whatever the reason, tooth bleaching isn’t just for the movie stars, and it isn’t just for one day. Many people have had their teeth bleached, and probably millions more are thinking about it. The desire for a brighter smile with whiter teeth is very strong, and tooth bleaching safely lightens the color of the teeth, lasting for up to five years. The most effective and safest method of tooth bleaching is dentist-supervised.
Almost everyone. However, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. A dentist may determine candidates for the process trough oral examination and diagnosis. The tooth -lightening system is ideal for patients who have healthy teeth and would like to have a whiter, brighter smile.
You can whiten your teeth in our office, in only ONE-HOUR ( see under “what’s new”) or comfortable and cost-effectively, in private, while you sleep or for a few hours during the day.
A whitening gel is placed in a custom made thin bleaching tray that fits over your teeth. As the active ingredients in the gel, carbamide peroxide is broken down, enters the enamel and dentin and bleaches the coloured substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed, only the tooth colour is made lighter.
Results are usually seen after the first application. Maximum results generally occur when the process is continued for 10-14 days or nights of treatments.
The teeth will always be lighter than they were. However, some patients may need periodic re-whitening for one or two nights every six to twelve months.
Some people experience temporarily increased tooth sensitivity to cold during the treatment. These symptoms always disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
