Teeth Whitening Stoney Creek
Effective Stony Creek Teeth Whitening Procedures
It’s said that a smile is one of the most beautiful features you have. A smile is able to relieve stress and calm you down, it is beautiful, and helps you socialize when interacting with people. However, the benefits of smiling could be hampered by discoloured teeth.
Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, but over time your teeth can become discoloured by coffee, wine, certain foods, smoking, tartar, aging and other causes. At Gateshead Dental, we offer two procedures for teeth whitening in Stoney Creek which are aimed at enhancing your smile by whitening your teeth.
Why Consider This Procedure?
Stains on the enamel
If you notice any of these then it is time to see your dentist for a professional tooth whitening procedure.
Our Hamilton Teeth Whitening Procedures
The two procedures we offer at Gateshead Dental gives you the opportunity to enhance your smile at very affordable prices:
Custom Whitening Tray
Our dentist will have you visit for custom made acrylic trays that are fitted to your upper and lower teeth. This method offers the ease of home application and the trays can be used daily with a whitening gel for a period of two to four weeks.
This is one of the most effective and safest teeth whitening treatment since the custom trays are made to fit your mouth and ensure that the whitening gel does not leak to your gums and cause irritation.
This method comes packaged with stock trays prefilled with teeth whitening gel. While not as long lasting a result as the custom tray, the procedure can give good results to people whose teeth don’t have a high degree of discolouration. The other advantage to this system is that is less expensive.
Types of Teeth Discolouration
There are three main types of teeth discolouration that may encourage you to seek out solutions:
This type occurs when the enamel (the outer part of the tooth) is stained. This could be caused by foods, certain drinks, and smoking.
This happens when the dentin (the inner part of the tooth) darkens. This may be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child. Another cause could be a result of using tetracycline antibiotics before the age of eight or the mother using these antibiotics in the second half of the pregnancy. Another cause is if you took a fall when you were a kid and hurt your tooth in a way that affected its development. Lastly, it could be that you were born with a rare condition known as dentinogenesis imperfecta, which causes gray, purple, or amber discolourations.
In some cases, the dentin can turn yellow with age. In addition, the enamel grows thinner with time hence allowing the dentin to show. As such, age-related discolouration can be termed as being caused by the combination of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
At Gateshead Dental, we take a holistic approach to dental care, looking for the root causes of any pain, discomfort or symptoms.
We educate our patients on the dental practices required to prevent oral health problems.
