A common request within cosmetic dentistry in Whitby is for teeth whitening treatments. A patient may want whiter teeth for a variety of reasons, such as an upcoming occasion or just wanting to make a bit of a change. No matter your reason, Whitby Smile Centre is happy to help you out.
One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that white teeth do not necessarily have an impact on your overall oral health. Discolouration may be a warning sign of another dental problem, but it is possible to have white teeth and poor oral health. There are many factors that can change how white your teeth appear. Teeth are naturally grey or yellow in tint naturally, but can discolour further through the use of substances such as coffee, tea, and tobacco. Furthermore, the surrounding features can change how white teeth appear. This can be caused by factors such as makeup or skin pigmentation.
There are two common types of teeth whitening procedures that our dentist in Whitby is able to provide. In-office teeth whitening procedures use specialized dental equipment to alter the colouration of your teeth from the office. This procedure typically is done within a single appointment and has a larger change than take-home procedures, but there are different factors to consider; such as schedule and pricing.
Take home teeth whitening kits can also be provided by dentists to provide you with the ability to whiten your teeth on your own schedule. You will have to come into the office to pick up your kit, but you can do the steps at home yourself. You should follow the instructions provided to help achieve desired results. These kits will not alter your tooth’s colour as quickly as in-office procedures, but are typically seen as more convenient since you can do it from home.
If you are interested in teeth whitening services, or just have more questions about the process, contact Whitby Smile Centre today. You can also request an appointment online from our home page at any time of day, but our office is also open on Saturdays to offer you a convenient choice for your oral health.
