Teeth Whitening Brampton: Whitening is the most common Cosmetic Dentistry procedure asked about at the dental office. A bright white smile can draw attention and create confidence. You can take several approaches to whiten your teeth.
1. In-Office Whitening If you prefer in office whitening, Dr. Sharma will suggest a procedure that can be done in our office. This procedure is called chairside whitening system. This procedure is safe, effective and fast. In just over an hour your teeth will become dramatically whiter.
2. At Home Bleaching These products contain peroxide(s), which actually bleach the tooth enamel. These products typically rely on percent carbamide peroxide as the bleaching agent. Carbamide peroxide comes in several different concentrations (10%, 16%, 22%). Peroxide-containing whiteners typically come in a gel and are placed in a mouthguard. Usage regimens vary. Some products are used for about twice a day for 2 weeks, and others are intended for overnight use for 1-2 weeks. If you obtain the bleaching solution from your dentist, he or she can make a custom-fitted mouthguard for you that will fit your teeth precisely. Currently, only dentist-dispensed home-use 10% carbamide peroxide tray-applied gels carry the CDA Seal. You also may want to speak with our dentist should any side effects become bothersome. For example, teeth can become sensitive during the period when you are using the bleaching solution. In many cases, this sensitivity is temporary and should lessen once the treatment is finished. Some people also experience soft tissue irritation-either from a tray that doesn’t fit properly or from solution that may come in contact with the tissues.
3. Whitening Toothpaste All toothpaste help remove surface stain through the action of mild abrasives. “Whitening” toothpaste have special chemical or polishing agents that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, the products do not alter the intrinsic color of teeth.
