Tooth whitening, otherwise known as “bleaching,” is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to improve the colour of natural tooth enamel. It’s also an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients wishing to reverse the effects of aging and stains on teeth. Commercial teeth whitening products can harm the teeth with their harsh abrasives, or may only be effective on certain types of stains. You can get professional teeth whitening in Greater Sudbury which can be the most effective method available. Before you get started with any whitening procedure, it’s always important to have any fillings, crowns, or other dental appliances evaluated beforehand.
Professional tooth whitening at our Greater Sudbury clinic usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (moulds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic trays. At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit. We will make any adjustments if necessary. The trays are worn with our professional whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
As with any tooth whitening system, regular touch-ups may be required to help maintain your healthy, white smile. This is especially true if you smoke, or drink beverages such as coffee, tea, or wine.
