Bramwest Family Dental offers teeth whitening to make your teeth look brilliant and dazzling. Teeth whitening removes any stains that have been building up on your teeth due to the consumption of coffee, tea, or soda, or due to smoking. This procedure is a common one and considered safe if performed by a dentist or under the supervision of a dentist. However, teeth whitening may not be for everyone. Children, pregnant women, and women who are lactating are advised against teeth-whitening procedures. Not all teeth are able to show the results of teeth whitening. The dentist in Brampton, ON at Bramwest Family Dental ask that you schedule a consultation or bring up teeth whitening at your regular appointment to make sure that you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. At the consultation, a shade assessment will be done, and the methods for teeth whitening will be discussed in greater detail.
Generally, most patients can whiten their teeth professionally in two ways; by doing it at-home with a dentist-provided kit or by having it done at the dental office by a dentist or dental assistant. The dental office option provides immediate results and is, therefore, better for patients who want their pearly whites to be pearly white instantly. The treatment usually includes cleaning, bleaching, and is touched off with a fluoride treatment to keep teeth healthy and plaque-free. Patients may also be given take-home kits to maintain the sparkle of the teeth. This is a great option for instant results and suits those with busy schedules and those with current upcoming events such as weddings, public speaking, and other public events that involve showing teeth.
If you don’t mind waiting a little longer, your dentist could prepare an at-home dental whitening kit for you. It is convenient for those who cannot or do not want to come into the office for a few hours. A mold will be made of your teeth to create a customized treatment tray for you. The kit includes a whitening dental gel that gets put in the tray, and then the tray is placed by you onto your teeth. The dentist will give you instructions on how your personalized treatment will work and how long it will take to be effective.
