Here at Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice and what you can do at home.
For example, teeth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office, there are safe and effective methods for whitening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening techniques are also safe and effective and sometimes more budget-friendly.
Additionally, we counsel you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.
Education and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary liquid can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to a buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.
If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and dental health, please pick up the phone and contact the dentist near you. We provide a full spectrum of dental services from general to cosmetic dentistry to dental implants.
