BEAUTIFULLY WHITE TEETH
Tooth whitening is a safe, simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. All the scientific research in whitening has come to a few conclusions.
The degree of whitening is in correlation with the strength of gel that is used and the duration that gel is on your teeth. Therefore, to get dramatic, long lasting results, our office recommends using a system where we make you custom trays and provide you with a high concentration gel to be used at home for two weeks. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.
What does teeth whitening involve?
This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (moulds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution for one-two hours each day for 14 consecutive days.
You may experience slight tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped. You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays.
