Most of us notice our teeth getting dull as the years go by. Maybe duller teeth are the least of our worries as we age. On the other hand, who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we use cosmetic dentistry to improve smiles every day!
There are lots of teeth whitening choices out there, and over-the-counter products like whitening strips and toothpaste can be moderately effective. But they cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.
There are two types of tooth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.
- Extrinsic stains. Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
- Intrinsic stains. These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.
We use the Zoom! whitening system, a light-activated, in-office procedure. It can be completed in just one appointment. When it’s done, you’ll have a smile with whiter-than-ever brilliance.
For those who prefer to do it themselves, we offer NiteWite at-home whitening. It too yields spectacular results!
