This fall, make sure you have a sparkling white smile that fills you with confidence everywhere you go!

Not sure how to make that happen?

No problem! Your friends at Lakewood Dental Centre are here to shed some light on the issue of dingy, discolored teeth and a couple of ways we can fix them!

Two Cosmetic Treatments That Whiten Your Teeth

The cosmetic dentistry service you choose to lighten things up in your smile will all depend on your current dental health and the needs and goals you discuss with your Winnipeg dentist. We will help you decide which method is going to be most suitable to your situation, but here are two options you may learn more about during your cosmetic consultation:

#1 – Professional Teeth Whitening Systems

Teeth whitening products have saturated the DIY cosmetic dentistry market. A simple walk down the oral care aisle of any drugstore is proof of that.

Toothpastes, strips, rinses, and gels… there’s so much to choose from, but sadly, it won’t matter which one you ultimately buy.

That’s because no commercial brand whitening product contains strong enough levels of bleaching agents that will make much of a difference in the color of your teeth. The other drawback is that even though DIY kits found in stores aren’t very powerful, they can do harm to your teeth and gums, with abrasive chemicals that could lead to irritation and sensitivity.

Only a dentist can provide safe, effective teeth whitening that will truly give you the results you’re looking for because we have access to prescription-strength products and use professional tools and techniques.

#2 – Customized Dental Veneers

Going to the dentist to whiten your teeth is the only way to do it if you want results.

But teeth whitening treatment isn’t right for everyone. Just because you have deeply set stains or discoloration with a couple of teeth doesn’t mean this is the only solution to brighten your smile.

Any teeth that have been restored with a filling, crown, or a root canal, for example, will be resistant to bleaching gels. Also, if you have stained teeth that are also damaged, or cosmetically flawed in other ways, teeth whitening treatment will only solve the color issue.

That’s when we might suggest customized dental veneers!

Not only do veneers instantly whiten teeth, but it’s a longer-lasting solution for a bright, glowing smile because they’re stain resistant!

But the benefits don’t stop there. Veneers are used to:

  • Conceal misshapen teeth
  • “Close” gaps and “straighten” teeth
  • Hide cracked, chipped teeth
  • Give your smile a more balanced, even smile overall

Dental veneers are the showstopper of cosmetic dentistry, used everywhere to give people from all walks of life glamorous smiles just like celebrities!

Choose The Right Solution For You!

We can’t tell you in a blog which cosmetic treatment is the most suitable choice for your situation. Only your Winnipeg dentist can do that!

What we can tell you, though, is that either way you go, you can rely on safe treatment and beautiful results you’ll love showing off this season!
