Welcome to the Wetaskiwin Family Dental dental blog, Wetaskiwin! I am Doctor Tim Mahoney. Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening.
Unfortunately, our teeth lose their lustre as we grow older, but I see staining on young patients, as well. Wetaskiwin area residents of all ages want whiter teeth.
To protect from staining, it is essential to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.
Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpaste can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Wetaskiwin Family Dental is your brilliant solution!
If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Wetaskiwin Family Dental, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns or bondings.
In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Wetaskiwin Family Dental and can produce remarkable results over time.
