Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Cosmetic dentistry offers patients an opportunity to look as young as they feel, and research is continuously improving the effectiveness and availability of these services. While some procedures have only been available for a short time, teeth whitening is an example of a service that has been used reliably for decades. 

While your dentist can help you reach your tooth shade goals, it is important that those goals are reasonable given your age, health and lifestyle.

Check Your Habits

Are you running into challenges in achieving permanent success where it comes to smoking? Your dentist may be able to offer you medical support in kicking the habit. If you are considering whitening your teeth, talk to your dentist first. It is best to remove the offending stainers before undergoing whitening to encourage lasting results.

What You Can’t Control

There are factors in tooth shade that are beyond our control such as age, tooth size and environmental lighting. It is natural for teeth to discolour, to some degree, as we age.  Men often complain of discolouration since their teeth are typically larger than women’s and, therefore, more prominent. It is important to bear these things in mind to ensure reasonable expectations of your teeth whitening experience.

Talk to your Dentist

When considering your whitening options, talk to your dentist before purchasing a drug store product. While these products may be effective in some cases, your dentist has access to clinical strength products that will increase the comfort and effectiveness of your whitening experience. Whitening is a reasonably priced service that can often be added to compliment a checkup and cleaning.
