Teeth Whitening near Glencairn
If your teeth have lost their pearly white, healthy appearance you are not alone. Aging, diet, injuries and many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. Teeth whitening has become a popular dental procedure offered at our Glen Park dental office. Whitening is 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 Zoom Whitening can last for as long as a year and with touch-up treatments (at home) every few months 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) as well as smokers and tobacco users.
Note: Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished.
Reason for Tooth Discolouration include:
- Drinking coffee, tea, wine or soft drink stains teeth
- Root Canal Therapy
- Natural aging: the dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens with age
- Accidents: a dead nerve will darken a tooth
- Smoking or any tobacco use stains teeth
