Are you a daily tea and coffee drinker? Do you find yourself staring at brown spots or yellow stains on your teeth? A lot of people hide their smile for these very reasons. You don’t have to be embarrassed by yellowing or discolored teeth.
Teeth whitening has become one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures, and with good reason. It’s a simple way to improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. At Parkland Mall Dental Centre, our general dentists offer effective teeth whitening treatments to remove surface stains and brighten your smile.
While all teeth tend to yellow with age, there are several external factors that can exacerbate tooth discolouration. Certain choice of food and beverages such as coffee, tea, sodas and red wine will start affecting your teeth. Smoking is yet another major contributor when it comes to yellowing of the teeth. The buildup of calculus and tartar can also influence the staining of teeth. Our dentists in Red Deer are well versed and ready to tackle any of your discoloured teeth issues and concerns.
WHAT TO EXPECT from your teeth whitening visit
Regardless of the cause behind the discolouration, our experienced dentists can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile. Having a professional consultation with a dentist can help reduce the risks and negative effects often experienced with at-home teeth whitening such as damage to the tooth enamel.
We take impressions of your teeth and provide you with the custom fitted whitening trays and solution that you can take home and use at your convenience. The trays are custom-made to fit the shape of your mouth and provide gentle and even results while ensuring there is minimal irritation to the gums.
Keep in mind that all teeth whitening treatments are temporary. In order to maintain your bright smile, we recommend that you touch them up with a few days of bleaching every six to 12 months ideally after you have your regular teeth cleaning. At-home whitening trays tend to be safer and cause less tooth sensitivity than in-office treatments. This is because the trays don’t require the use of bright lights or heat.
Additionally, a proper oral hygiene routine is necessary to keep your teeth healthy and prevent internal discolouration. Before you get your teeth whitened, be sure to schedule a general dental cleaning and exam for best results!
