05 Oct So you say you want white teeth? …West Kelowna Whitening Solutions
Whitening Your Sensational Smile
We often think of healthy teeth as having a bright, white smile. There are many reasons your grin can have more of a yellow or greyish tinge and definitely not pass the “tissue test” as the TV commercial shows (where people compare their smile to bleached paper products). Certain foods and beverages including red wine, nicotine, green and black tea and coffee are among the top contenders for staining our pearly whites. However, many other factors including medication, mouth trauma and aging can dramatically dull your smile. True Dental in West Kelowna has some fantastic tooth whitening options to help you revitalize your grin and remove those pesky surface stains!
Which Staining Protocol Will Deliver You the Best Results?
Note that some staining situations will not respond to traditional whitening measures. It is wise to book a consultation appointment with us to determine the cause and type of staining you are trying to amend and then we can make a professional recommendation. Certain restorations including caps, veneers, crowns or fillings will not accept the whitening agent. Teeth that have become discoloured from tooth injury or medication will also not see any change. Custom veneers may be an option for clients that desire a brighter smile who are not candidates for regular whitening products.
Surface whitening products contain abrasives designed to gently remove light staining. These fine particles are typically found in specialty toothpastes or chewing gums. They are unlikely to cause excessive tooth wear and tear. However, these items should not be considered as a substitute for professional whitening and offer less sparkling results overall.
Peroxide Based Bleaches
There are extremely strong bleaching products that are only administered chair side for ultimate client safety and comfort. We protect the gums, lips and surrounding tissue with a special gel coating to ensure the whitening product stays on the teeth and does not cause any discomfort. The whitening agent becomes activated with a special light and the entire procedure takes approximately 45 min to 1 hour.
Custom Whitening Trays for At Home
Another excellent option is to have custom trays made that specifically fit to your mouth. True Dental sends you home with complete instructions and a peroxide based gel that is less intense that our chair side bleaching. This allows clients to complete their teeth whitening routine in the comfort of their own home and provides some ongoing maintenance.
Non-Vital Bleaching Performed on Teeth No Longer “Alive”
This method is conducted on teeth that are no longer considered “living” due to a root canal for instance. This is a process of lightening your teeth from the inside out.
