Teeth Whitening

Many patients are looking to brighten their smile. The colour of teeth can darken with age and accumulation of surface stains. There are a number of whitening options available. Your dentist can explain the pros and cons of whitening toothpastes and at home whitening under a dentist care. Your dentist will consider your oral health conditions and can advise you on which, if any, is a suitable method for whitening your teeth.

Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:

Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.

Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.

Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!

Questions & Answers

Sensitivity from tooth whitening is always transient. That means if there is any sensitivity caused by the whitening, it goes away within one to two days after the treatment, and the patient returns to the state of sensitivity he or she had prior to starting the whitening process.
