Having a whiter, brighter smile is often an important concern for dental patients. While brushing and flossing are vital to your oral health, these techniques don’t often give patients the results they want when it comes to removing stains and discolouration from teeth. For those concerned about the look of your smile, consider teeth whitening. Spruce Grove residents can turn to Campbell Dental Centre.
There have never been more teeth whitening treatments available than there are now. There are many different brands of whitening toothpastes, strips, mouthwashes available over-the-counter to consider. Additionally, there are treatments available that would require you to speak to a dental professional, such as tray whitening and in-office whitening:
Similar to whitening strips, this process uses a whitening gel applied onto your teeth to remove stains and discoloration. The difference is that rather than using a polyethylene strip to hold the gel against your enamel, a custom-made tray from your dentist will keep the gel in place.
For immediately whiter teeth, consider in-office whitening. This process again involves a gel that will be applied to your teeth. However, this gel reacts to UV light that will be pointed at your teeth for fifteen minutes.
Please note that certain teeth whitening treatments aren’t right for everyone. Some methods can cause sensitivity in teeth while other whitening solutions can’t be used if you have crowns, bridges, and other dental work. If you are in Spruce Grove and are considering a professional or commercially available teeth whitening treatment, call Campbell Dental Centre. We’d be happy to review the options available to you, and help you to choose the treatments that would best fit your needs.
