Teeth Whitening has grown in popularity for a simple reason. Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet. A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile. There are countless at-home whitening systems and products including toothpastes such as Colgate, gels, strips, trays, rinses and whitening products obtained from a dental professional. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. But this cosmetic procedure is not recommended for everyone. Teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth (no fillings) and gums.
Sometimes after home-treatments, teeth can be overly sensitive, especially with cold foods. If this occurs you have several options to reduce the pain both short and long-term. Use a sensitivity toothpaste, sensitive toothpastes are formulated with ingredients such as potassium nitrate to relive the pain associated with tooth sensitivity. You may also choose to chew gum as scientists have found that more saliva is produced when chewing gum. And the act of chewing may distract people from the pain. For in-office treatment, it's possible that you may feel a few isolated tingles during your procedure. Based on the frequency or severity of what you notice, your dentist might decide that it's best to cut your bleaching session short.
Everyone dreams of having a blindingly white smile that can light up a room. However, their teeth can often be marred and yellowed over time by their diet. Heavy coffee drinkers and red wine aficionados, in particular, tend to suffer from teeth that are yellow and stained. When this occurs, you may try to hide your real smile from the camera and even from those closest to you.
What if there was a quick and easy way to change your smile for the better in just one day?
Using the professional whitening services at Markham Dental offices, we can help you to make your dreams a reality. Many of our patients have already tried the store-bought solutions such as gels, trays, or other whitening products but with little success. Continuously purchasing these products can be expensive and provide less desirable results than a professional service. Over-the-counter products lack the key ingredients that professionals would typically utilize. In our office, we offer teeth whitening with much stronger bleaching agents that result in a brighter smile.
Whitening your teeth is a purely cosmetic procedure that doesn’t impact the overall health of your mouth. However, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t essential for some people to sign up for this service. A whiter smile could be your ticket to feeling more confident about your looks and improving your overall self-esteem on a daily basis.
The procedure itself is relatively simple and is often completed in just one visit. We will make sure that your gums are adequately protected from the gel before applying our bleaching solution to your enamel. You should have healthy gums and teeth prior to coming in for your session. Most of the time, the process is completely painless and the finished product is a like-new smile that glitters in the light.
However, there are some situations where patients can develop some sensitivity in their teeth following a whitening session. These side effects could be reduced by using specially formulated toothpaste or chewing sugar-free gum. If you feel significant tingles or pain during your bleaching service, the dentist may cut your session shorter to minimize these side effects from occurring.
Not everyone is a great candidate for teeth whitening. Individuals with yellow teeth tend to have the most success with achieving a brighter smile through teeth whitening. Brown shades are harder to bleach, and gray tones may not change color at all. Your teeth will need to be completely healthy without fillings for the solution to make a difference in the color of your teeth. Whitening will not work on implants or fillings.
