Whether you drink a lot of coffee and tea or have a history of poor oral health, teeth whitening might be a good solution for your discolored teeth. Over time, your teeth will turn darker and duller, even with excellent dental care. Teeth whitening is a great way to increase your confidence and brighten your smile.
At Parkdale Family Dental, we offer several treatment options for teeth whitening. You can choose the type of treatment that works best for your needs and timeline. Visit us today to discuss your teeth whitening options.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that brightens your smile. Discolored teeth are common among people who drink a lot of tea and coffee. Although this discoloration is not necessarily a reflection of poor oral health, many people think of it this way.
Our dentists at Parkdale Family Dental can provide a few different teeth whitening services. One method for whitening teeth is to shine a bright UV light on the teeth. Another method involves applying chemicals to the teeth to whiten them.
When whitening your teeth, you can decide how bright you want them to look. You can opt for a bright white color or something that looks more natural. At the end of the day, you are designing your smile, and teeth whitening can help you feel more confident in both your smile and how you look.
What Is the Process for Teeth Whitening in Parkdale?
There are a few options for teeth whitening treatments at our Parkdale Family Dental location. You have the choice to either do your whitening at our office or at home. The process for whitening looks different depending on which option you choose.
Whiten Your Teeth in Our Office
This treatment option is fast and professional. When whitening your teeth at the office, our dentist will shine a powerful UV light on your teeth. This technique will instantly lighten your teeth by a few shades. This treatment option is best for people who want whiter teeth quickly. Many people choose this option right before their wedding or other special events.
Although this option is the quickest, it does require you to come to the office every time you want it done. If you do not plan on whitening your teeth very often, then this might be the best choice for you.
Whiten Your Teeth at Home
This treatment option is more gradual than in-office whitening. For this treatment option, our dentist will make personalized trays that fit over your teeth. You will then use special products from our dentist in the trays to whiten your teeth at home. People choose this option when they want to gradually whiten their teeth and do not need them to be perfectly white for a special event.
With this treatment option, you can whiten your teeth on your schedule. You do not need to come to the office during this treatment, so it is much more manageable in the long term. You can choose to whiten your teeth slowly over time to keep up with coffee and tea stains, or you can do it more frequently over a period of a few weeks.
At-home whitening with products from our dentists is much safer and more effective than whitening your teeth with products you can buy at a store. Talk to us before trying any store-bought products to make sure they are safe to use.
In some cases, our specialists might recommend that you stay away from whitening altogether unless in a controlled environment like our office. This advice could be due to weak teeth, poor dental health, or a myriad of other reasons.
Who Can Benefit from Teeth Whitening?
Anyone who is unhappy with the color of their teeth can benefit from this method of cosmetic dentistry. Many people see dark or yellow teeth as a sign of poor health and consider them to be ugly. Even though this discoloration is natural and does not indicate anything wrong, many people find that they have more confidence after whitening their teeth.
Whether you want to gradually lighten your teeth over time or need bright white teeth for a special event, our team at Parkdale Family Dental will be able to meet your needs.
