Edmonton Dentist | Teeth Whitening Gone Wrong
At the tooth doctor we are an Edmonton dentist who cares about the health and longevity of your smile. Being an Edmonton dentist is a privilege for the tooth doctor. He grew up in the city and has always wanted to get back in this capacity. He is an Edmonton dentist who knows that he can educate his clients so that they keep their teeth healthier and for longer. One of the main ways he does this is by having regular checkups with his clients where he can assess everything that is going on in their mouth.
By coming into see the dentist regularly you can prevent a lot of damage from being done in your mouth. It is never too early to start seeing the dentist on a regular basis. Checkups and cleanings prevent decay as well as remove stains from your teeth. Within the cleaning there scaling and polishing and these are some of the best ways to remove any discolouration you might see on your teeth. It also removes the plaque that sits on the teeth so that it does not cause holes to be made and make your teeth like Swiss cheese.
This is how cavities can set in and discolouration. Nobody likes either of those. Seeing your dentist regularly is the best way to combat this.
Many people think that if they have yellowish teeth that their teeth are automatically unhealthy. This is simply not true as teeth have a natural yellow tint to them. The good news is that this is easily treatable with our whitening treatment. If your teeth are brown or grey that is a different issue and you should always be seeing your dentist about those colours. They are a sign of something else going on.
You can keep your teeth whiter for longer after you had them cleaned if you switch to a light coloured diet. You would have to learn to avoid colourants in your food and drink. You would also possibly have to quit smoking as well. However we have seen good habits overcome these issues. As long as you are brushing multiple times a day flossing multiple times a week and using mouthwash regularly you can actually still keep your teeth quite white. You will still need to have them cleaned and polished and scaled so that you have a good starting point.
Plaque can sit on the teeth and make holes which food colourants get into and cause the discolouration. By using customized trays that are made by the dentist you can reach all of those places with the bleaching gel. You will get an overall more even look and lighter and brighter. The gel that is used is a much higher concentrate by 60 times then any other source of bleaching kit. These are things you can only access at the dentist and not from a drugstore. If you would like to get started today please call our office and will book you in for a consultation to see how teeth whitening can help you.
