Teeth Whitening in Edmonton and Surrounding Areas
How does teeth whitening work?
For those looking to correct their yellowed or stained teeth, they can either opt for at home treatments or have it professionally carried out by a dentist.
Bleaching can be accomplished through specialized toothpastes, in office laser treatment and custom trays for your mouth were a gel with bleach is applied directly to the teeth. Each method varies in strength, cost and convenience.
The bleach removes unwanted stains and makes teeth several shades whiter than their natural colour.
It is best to consult with your dentist when considering bleaching. It is important to know if your teeth will react well to bleach and if the treatment will be successful.
In-office teeth whitening is by far the most time-efficient and safest option when it comes to obtaining an attractive smile. A team of experts will provide a dental exam and cleaning before the procedure to see what kind of teeth whitening is best for you.
At Saddleback Dental Centre, it is possible for dentists to apply the gel in a single comprehensive treatment. It takes less than an hour to obtain perfectly polished teeth.
In some cases, dentists may provide alternative solutions to obtain a polished smile.
- Consult with your dentist beforehand: This is a crucial component to teeth whitening treatments. No one knows your mouth and teeth better than your dentist. If you have undergone major dental surgery or have cavities then it could have adverse effects.
- Temporary irritation: Just as every smile is unique, so is every set of teeth. Some teeth are more sensitive than others so it is important to know that temporary irritation can occur during whitening procedures.
- Maintenance: Bleaching is an effective way to a luminous smile but it must be maintained. Regular brushing, flossing and cleanings are essential to keeping your teeth at their best.
