Teeth whitening falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. The teeth whitening process eliminates discoloration and stains on the teeth, and can also brighten the natural pigmentation of the teeth. New breakthroughs in light- activated gels and high- intensity lights now make it possible to achieve a whiter, brighter smile- right here at Bloor Dufferin Dental.How does it work?
First, any plaque and tartar are removed thoroughly from your teeth. A high- intensity light or laser will be activated to the whitening gel that is applied on your teeth. After each tooth has been treated, the gel will be rinsed away and the cycle repeats for several times.Are there any side-effects?
The gel that is used for teeth whitening causes the teeth to be temporarily sensitive to hot and cold foods and drinks. Gum sensitivity may be experienced for a few days following the treatment. If you have sensitive teeth, it is recommended to visit a dental office for professional laser treatments rather than using teeth bleaching kits at home.Natural remedies for a brighter smile
There are some tips on easy and natural ways to brighten up your smile. Little efforts sure go a long way. Please note that these are only alternatives if you are not looking for instant and dramatic results.
