Opalescence Teeth Whitening
If you teeth have lost their pearly white healthy appearance, you are not alone. Aging, diet, injuries, along with many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. In recent years, teeth whitening has become a popular dental procedure at our dental office in Toronto.
Reasons for tooth discolouration include:
- Drinking coffee, tea, wine, or soft drinks
- Natural aging - the dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens
- Smoking or any tobacco use stains teeth
- Accidents - a dead nerve will darken a tooth
- Root Canal Therapy
Teeth whitening is a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discoloured teeth to a healthy, natural colour, and is very safe under the supervision of a dental professional.
The results from teeth whitening can last for as long as a year and with touch-ups treatments (at home) every few months, the results can last even longer. "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that are prone to stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine.
Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth and gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished.
Feel free to ask us about professional teeth whitening as well as over the counter agents. Together, we can compare treatments and determine which solution will be most effective for you.
If you are interested in bringing out the white in your teeth, the team at Museum Dental will evaluate your teeth, smile, and expectations with you. Contact our Toronto dental office today to schedule a consultation.
