Who wouldn’t want to have a bright white healthy smile? After all, a brilliant smile is the first thing that people will notice about you. At Sheppard Village Dental, we pride ourselves in offering a whitening solution to our patients to get a dazzling white smile.
Before whitening your teeth, it is important to know how the process works so you do it wisely. Some over the counter products, such as whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, can actually do more long-term harm than good. These products can contain abrasive ingredients, which appear to remove stains on your teeth. Unfortunately, some of these coarse materials actually wear down the white enamel and then expose the yellow dentin underneath the enamel surface. If used often and long-term, you could actually end up getting yellow teeth faster! Teeth whitening is a treatment that uses a type of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide which penetrates the outer layer of the teeth to whiten the debris and minerals in the tubules of the teeth, thereby making them whiter.
The various methods of teeth whitening have evolved over the past thirty years and now we have safe and effective techniques that can be used to make your teeth whiter without damaging them. In addition to that, we have special formulations that even allow people with sensitive teeth to whiten their teeth. We will create custom whitening trays that fit perfectly in your mouth. In the comfort of your own home, you simply apply the whitening gel solution to the tray and slip into your mouth for a few minutes. After two weeks, you will have long-lasting and noticeable results that last for months, even years! If you are a heavy smoker or consumer of red wine and coffee, you can simply get gel refills and touch up your results more frequently.
Teeth whitening can offer a simple and quick way to brighten your smile in a relatively inexpensive and non-invasive way. Our trusted dental team can give you the best options and guide you on which techniques might be best. Patients who have thin enamel or chipped teeth might want to consider porcelain veneers as a stronger option for a whiter smile.
Don’t let a yellow or dull smile hold you back any longer. Feel confident making the best first impression with beautiful, white teeth. In just a few sessions, you’ll notice a long-lasting whiter smile right away!
