Having said that, you have options for teeth whitening near you that can whiten your teeth by as many as eight shades in a single one-hour appointment risking disappointment with DIY retail kits. If you are looking for teeth whitening in Walden, our office provides teeth whitening near you.
Teeth Whitening Near You
Stains and discolouration that can undermine your smile and render your teeth dull are caused by factors that are within and beyond your control. Staining factors that you can control include strongly coloured foods (curries, for example) and beverages (red wine, tea, coffee, and cola drinks) and exposure to nicotine and tar while smoking. Discolouring factors you can not control include age, medication-related side effects, injury-related trauma, and the lingering effects of serious tooth infections.
Teeth whitening in Calgary, AB uses bleaching compounds that contain carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide to dissolve stains that discolour your teeth. Bleaching compounds used by dentists produce faster and superior results to the grocery store and drugstore DIY options because they contain much stronger concentrations of the active ingredients. Teeth whitening near you performed by a dentist also uses specialized equipment and adjusts the cleaning compounds to the precise stains on your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is not a one-size-fits-all approach but customized to the size, shape, colour, and sensitivity of your teeth and gums.
Professional teeth whitening comes in two formats. The first option is to have the whitening performed by a dentist in our office. Your whitening compounds will be put over your teeth in a tray, then activated and accelerated by a powerful LED light that can be adjusted to account for any tooth sensitivity. That process is repeated up to four times in a single one-hour appointment that may result in teeth as many as eight shades lighter. Alternatively, you can achieve professional teeth whitening results at home. After assessing your teeth and the particular discoloration at issue, we can provide trays containing our bleaching compounds for you to take and use at home. With diligent oral hygiene habits and regular dental care, your teeth will stay whiter for up to one year.
Two Key Points About Teeth Whitening
- Seeking teeth whitening in Calgary, AB is not an alternative to consistent daily brushing and flossing, and annual cleanings at your dentist.
- Teeth whitening produces the best results when applied to yellowish teeth. Teeth whitening can be ineffective when applied to gray teeth, and only moderately effective when applied to browned teeth.
