Teeth Whitening 101

Teeth whitening is a popular dental procedure among dental patients who desire a brighter smile. Years of drinking certain beverages, such as black tea, black coffee, red wine and soda can cause your teeth to yellow or otherwise stain or discolour. Additionally, habits like smoking can cause your teeth to turn a yellow hue. Also, some people are just genetically predisposed to having darker coloured teeth, no matter what they do to avoid them!

Teeth whitening isn’t for everyone. You will need a proper dental examination to determine if you’re a safe candidate for the treatment. While our teeth whitening treatments can lighten teeth up to eight shades lighter, it’s not a guarantee that you’ll achieve these results. This is because how white your teeth will get is all dependent on the current state of your teeth and their existing stains, and genetics. When you visit our dental clinic for a teeth whitening consultation, it’s important that you express how white you’re hoping your teeth can get so that, after a thorough examination of your teeth, our dentists can help set realistic expectations for your treatment session.

When you invest in teeth whitening, we understand that you want to get a good return on your investment. Our dentists will advise you on practices to follow to keep your teeth bright after getting them whitened. This includes avoiding food and drinks known to stain teeth, refraining from smoking, and practicing proper oral hygiene.
