Teeth Whitening has become a popular dental procedure. Whitening is a 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 Whitening can last for a long period and with touch-ups 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.
|While whitening may remove stains it is cosmetic in nature and may not correct underlying issues.
If you are considering whitening, Dr. Ching will evaluate your teeth, smile and expectations with you, to determine whether whitening is the correct procedure for you.
Feel free to ask Dr. Ching about professional tooth whitening as well as over the counter agents. Together you can compare treatments and determine which solution will be most effective for you.
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. Click here to book an appointment at our Markham dental office and get a whiter smile!
