Do you envy the beautiful white smiles your favourite stars show off on television and print? If so, you are not alone.
It is normal for teeth to become discoloured and stained over time. As we age, the enamel grows thin and exposes the underlying yellow dentin. The dark-coloured and acidic foods that we consume take a toll on a bright, youthful smile.
Here’s the good news, professional teeth whitening is one of the fastest and simplest ways to achieve that dazzling Hollywood grin. Our Welland dentists can make your teeth 8 to 10 shades brighter.
The first step is to book a whitening consultation at Rose City Dental Centre. Then, our teeth whitening dentists will determine if your teeth and gums are healthy enough to withstand bleaching treatment. If there are any problems such as cavities, infection, or disease, they must first be addressed. Once your oral health is restored, we can move forward.
We offer two whitening solutions, in-office treatment and take-home kits. Each option is dentist-supervised and will deliver your desired results. Your choice will depend on how quickly you want your smile to shine.
In-Office Whitening: Dental whitening performed at our Welland, ON dental office takes under an hour to complete. We recommend getting routine teeth cleaning before doing any whitening. Doing so will help you achieve optimal results.
Then, the soft tissues of the mouth are covered. The dentist will be sure to expose only the teeth. Next, the bleaching gel is applied to each tooth surface. A curing light is used to help the solution penetrate the enamel and eradicate the discoloration.
You will also get a touch up to use at home to help maintain your newly whitened teeth.
At-Home Whitening: The dentist will first take mouth impressions. These moulds will be sent to a lab where your custom-fitted bleaching tray will be crafted. You will fill the trays with high-grade whitening gel and wear them according to the dentist’s instructions.
The gel dissolves and seeps through the enamel. Here, the solution gradually lightens tooth stains. You should notice results in about a week.
