Six Steps To Brighter Teeth With In-Office Whitening By Your Dentist In Mississauga
Sometimes no matter what you do, how often you brush, how regularly you rinse, you just can't seem to get that sparkle back into your smile. Teeth can darken, get stained, and discolor for several reasons. And the most common? Yellowing of aging due to thinning of white-colored enamel that shows the yellow-colored dentin underneath. You can also get tooth stains from drinking coffee, tea, or soda and eating high-pigment foods like dark berries. Even a blow to the mouth, old silver-colored fillings, and tetracycline treatment can leave your teeth dingy.
As your dentist in Mississauga, we provide professional in-office teeth whitening so that you can smile with complete confidence again.
5 steps for in-office teeth whitening that provide dynamic results!
- Cleaning – Before in-office teeth whitening treatment begins, we need to ensure your teeth are very clean as anything that is between the whitening agent and the teeth (for example plaque, tartar, or food debris) will act as a barrier and lessen the results or make the whitening treatment uneven. That’s why a professional dental cleaning in our practice will ensure that debris is fully removed prior to starting treatment. It’s like any other cleaning experience you’ve had during previous hygiene appointments! We’ll remove the hard calculus or tartar from above and below the gumline (something only your dental professional can do), and then we’ll polish your teeth. Many of our patients find it a time saver (and a money saver) if we combine an in-office teeth whitening treatment with your usual regularly scheduled hygiene appointment. Just make sure we have enough time to schedule in an extended appointment. Give us a call today!
