Your smile is important. It's one of the first things you notice when you meet someone. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression.
Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, colas and red wine or smoking. When teeth are in good condition but are darker than desired, whitening is often the answer.
Discoloured teeth, whether natural or stained, can be quickly and easily restored to beauty with various whitening techniques. Cosmetic tooth whitening, or "bleaching", can be performed in our Toronto dental office or at home.
Whitening can get your smile looking its best. Non-professional procedures and clinically unproven teeth whitening tips can often lead to unsatisfactory results.
You should look for a whitening procedure that is:
Proven to be safe and effective
Performed by a Dental professional
Teeth Whitening at Home
The most popular method of tooth whitening is the at-home, dentist-supervised option. During your visit to our Family Dental office, our dentist takes a mould of your teeth and creates a comfortable, customized mouth tray. Once this is complete, the home whitening gel, the tray and the instructions for use are given.
Whitening occurs when you wear the tray with the teeth whitening gel on your teeth as directed. Consecutive days are often needed to get the desired shade over the entire tooth. The at-home tooth whitening procedure is very safe and effective. Our dentists would be pleased to discus professional whitening and over the counter options to help you determine the solution for you.
In-Office Tooth Whitening
Zoom! Teeth Whitening – At Family Dental you can also choose to have your teeth whitened in our office and see instant results. The procedure involves a visit of an hour and a half for the actual ZOOM teeth whitening service. Professional in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Unlike home-use whitening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening (also known as power bleaching, power whitening, professional whitening or chairside whitening) takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are visible immediately
