Teeth whitening is one of the most sought- after cosmetic dental treatments. As we age, and especially if we regularly consume things like coffee, tea, citrus fruits or red wine, our teeth can become stained and discoloured. Teeth whitening is an ideal way to brighten discoloured enamel and enhance your smile.
The most popular teeth whitening method is to use a home teeth-whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically for most people. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old white fillings, crowns, etc. to match the newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you drink coffee, tea, or wine or if you smoke. Some reasons people may want to have their teeth whitened include:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
- Yellow, brown stained teeth
If misalignment is the issue, we have orthodontic options available to align and correct the position of the teeth. Please see more information in our Orthodontics section.
There are a number of other options available for correcting cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges and Lumineers™ may be used if there are broken, chipped or missing teeth. If you have any issues with the appearance of your smile, the best thing to do is come in for a consultation with one our friendly and experienced dentists.
