truth about teeth whitening

Here at Wetaskiwin Family Dental, we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles – what we can do with our dentist in Wetaskiwin and what you can do at home. For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office, there are safe and effective methods for lightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.

Additionally, we advise you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and harsh sodas. We understand that avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary drink can cut down on the contact your teeth have with such substances. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to a buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can lead to stronger staining and discoloration.

If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, contact Wetaskiwin Family Dental.

Come discover the personal attention with mini implants, the patient and steady hand with dental crowns, and the wise and thorough instruction relating to sedation dentistry. When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth, we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you – we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job.

Dr. Tim Mahoney provides the full spectrum of dental services from cosmetic dentistry to family dentistry to dental implants.
