A lot of the over-the-counter products don't work and that's an important part to understand is that whitening toothpaste, whitening mouth rinses, really don't have much of an effect, and in studies that have been done, doesn't make much of a difference. When we're going to do it for people, we want to make a difference. We want to show them that there's a before and after. This is we'll actually take the picture before it's done, we’ll take the picture after it's done, and the patient has a visual comparison between the two. There are different types of bleaching systems that we use in the office. There is a take-home type of bleaching system and this is used as a more gradual production of the whitening process. We also have an in-office system that says it's a more dramatic result, but it needs to be supported by the home care as well because just one treatment won't keep your teeth white. The other aspect of it is, is it done well and done properly? It's a good service, it’s long lasting and provided that we have limited staining afterwards, it will last for a long time as well. For those people who have problems with staining, it can be adjusted. It can be touched up so that we can still get that bright, white smile long lasting for them.
Whether your teeth have become stained or darkened over the years or you’re simply dissatisfied with their natural shade, Dr. Dhillon and Dr. McDermid our Winnipeg, MB dentists may be able to help you achieve the brighter, whiter smile you want through professional teeth whitening. The treatment can take as little as an hour at our office.
Pro Teeth Whitening Offers Advantages Over Store-Bought Products
Professional teeth whitening treatments, unlike the surface treatments you may find at the store, are strong enough to change the actual colour of your teeth. The Canadian Dental Association advises that these treatments are perfectly safe under the guidance of your dentist.
There are certain scenarios where teeth whitening may not be effective due to health issues. Whitening treatments also will not make replacement teeth, fillings, crowns, or root canal teeth whiter.
In addition to their formulations, which contain higher concentrations of whitening agents, professional teeth whitening treatments are:
- More comfortable. The professional products are formulated to minimize sensitivity.
- Easier to use. We use impressions of your teeth to make custom whitening trays. The trays are comfortable and ensure all tooth surfaces are covered. Many store-bought products involve messy strips or flimsy trays.
- Backed by your dentists. If you have any questions, you can give us a call or visit our office. Our dental professionals are more knowledgeable than someone who answers customer service calls for a store product.
What Are My Teeth Whitening Options?
Top-notch Winnipeg, MB dental office, Lakewood Dental Centre, has three options for professional teeth whitening that we can apply in-office for fast results, or you can use a take-home whitening kit that will gradually lighten your teeth over a span of several days.
KöR whitening solution is refrigerated until it’s applied to your teeth, so it can stay at its most potent. KöR has custom-designed trays that lockout saliva that could weaken the whitening solution and limit your results. The custom trays also protect your gums from sensitivity.
Opalescence mixes potassium nitrate and fluoride into their gel to protect the enamel of your teeth during the whitening process. Their gel stays on your teeth and does not spread to your gums to avoid irritation.
Zoom can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter! Zoom in-office treatment can give you a visibly whiter smile in just one visit. Zoom whitening treatments are designed to prevent tooth and gum sensitivity.
