A whiter brighter Christmas | 50% OFF All Teeth Whitening

Brampton Dentists, Brampton Dental Offices, Top Dentist in Brampton, White Smile, Teeth Whitening,

We have three different whitening systems and they are all 50% off for the month of December 2018 and January 2019. Be sure to contact one of our dental professionals for more information.

The best way to keep your teeth white is to brush twice a day, floss daily, see your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings, and limit stain-causing foods and habits. These include: tobacco, certain foods and beverages (such as coffee, tea and berries), some drugs (such as tetracycline), or trauma to a tooth. As well, your teeth may become stained or discoloured naturally as you age. Your dentist can give you the best advice about whitening your teeth.

HERE’S HOW IT’S DONE:

Chairside Bleaching – usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes and one to three visits to the dental office. A shield (or rubber dam) protects your gums from the bleaching agent (usually a form or hydrogen peroxide) which is “painted” onto your discoloured teeth and activated with heat or high-intensity light.

Mouthguard Bleaching – is done by you at home. You wear a custom-made mouthguard with special bleaching gel (provided by your dentist) for a period of time each day, or overnight, over a number of weeks.

It’s important to know that not everyone’s teeth will “whiten” the same. It depends on the number of teeth involved and the severity of discolouration. Over-the-counter, at-home whiteners are not recommended because they may cause problems associated with over exposing gum tissues to the active whitening agent. Any bleaching treatment should be done under your dentist’s supervision.

Are your teeth going from white to not so bright?

Young Man Smile Before And After Teeth WhiteningHave you noticed your teeth change colour ….. going from white to not so bright?

There are many reason teeth can change colour or get stained. From the foods consumed, and trauma to medication and age.

Food and Drinks

Certain foods and drinks have intense colour pigments that attach to the white outer part of the tooth (enamel) causing colour change. Such foods and drinks are: Coffee, tea, red wine, candy and foods containing colour.

Tobacco

Tar and nicotine create stains. Tar is naturally dark and although nicotine is colourless when mixed with oxygen it turns into a yellowish surface-staining substance.

Age

The enamel of the tooth is white however the layer under the enamel, called dentin, is yellowish. With age, as the enamel gets thiner, more of the yellowish dentin shows through.

Trauma

If you have hit your tooth you may notice it get darker as a reaction to the injury, by laying down more dentin.

Medication

Certain medications can also cause teeth to change colour and darken. Be sure to speak to your dentist if you have concerns that the medication you are taking are causing your teeth to change colour.

The best way to keep your teeth white is to brush twice a day, floss daily, see your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings, and limit stain-causing foods and habits. However if you feel your teeth can use a little whitening help there are a few options you may want to consider:

Chair-Side Bleaching – usually takes about 2 hours.  A shield (or rubber dam) protects your gums from the bleaching agent (usually a form or hydrogen peroxide) which is “painted” onto your discoloured teeth and activated with heat or high-intensity light.

Take-Home Bleaching – is done by you at home. You wear a custom-made tray with special bleaching gel (provided by your dentist) for a period of time each day over a number of weeks.
