Brighten Your January with a Whiter Smile

If the January weather is making you feel a little down in the mouth, why not brighten your smile with a professional teeth whitening treatment? Very soon, your teeth could look considerably whiter and brighter. You’ll feel so good about your teeth that you will want to smile more, even on the coldest, dreariest days. The very best way to brighten your smile is to see your dentist in Bowmanville. West Bowmanville Family Dental offers two excellent options for whitening teeth safely and effectively.

The Advantages of Whitening Teeth Professionally
First, before we recommend any whitening treatment, we want to ensure it is safe and appropriate for your dental health and that it will achieve your aims and desires. A dental checkup is essential before any form of tooth whitening procedure, as we must ensure you don’t have any signs of active dental diseases such as tooth decay or gum disease. If you do, these must be treated beforehand so you can whiten safely and without discomfort.

Secondly, we can assess your teeth to determine why they have discoloured. While often, tooth stains are external and will respond well to tooth whitening, some can be internal, and we may need a different approach to ensure these teeth whiten properly. Sometimes it is necessary to cover teeth that are severely stained internally with perhaps a dental crown or veneer.

Thirdly, we can make sure your teeth will whiten evenly. People with existing dental restorations often fail to realize that these won’t change colour. A teeth whitening treatment cannot lighten porcelain crowns, bridges or veneers, or other restorations. One solution is to replace these restorations after completing your teeth whitening treatment in Newcastle, ensuring your new crowns or veneers blend in naturally with your newly whitened teeth. An advantage of replacing older restorations is that newer materials often look considerably better and far more realistic than before.

A Teeth Whitening Treatment Customized for You
Like every treatment here at West Bowmanville Family Dental, your teeth whitening procedure is carefully customized to provide you with the best results safely and effectively. Choose between whitening in office or purchasing a custom home whitening kit.

In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening in Clarington is perfect for anyone who wants to see results quickly. In just a single appointment, your teeth will look several shades brighter and whiter. We use Philips Zoom whitening which is one of the most effective systems available worldwide. It utilizes high-quality whitening products available only to dental professionals and which will brighten your smile safely and more comfortably, reducing the risk of unwanted side-effects like tooth sensitivity.

Custom Home Whitening Kit
If you prefer to whiten in the comfort of your home, ask us about a custom home whitening kit. The kit contains mouth trays that fit comfortably over your teeth, preventing whitening gel from leaking out onto your gums. We provide the correct strength of professional whitening gel in a form that is safe for home use. We will show you how to fill the trays and how to insert and remove them, and we can talk to you about how often and for how long to use the trays. Some people may only want to leave them in for a short while, while others will wear them overnight. A custom home whitening kit is perfect if you have especially sensitive teeth, allowing you to whiten more slowly and providing you with greater control over treatment.

Sometimes, using both treatments and can provide the ultimate solution, first whitening your teeth in-office before continuing with a custom whitening kit in Courtice. Also, once you have your whitening trays, these can often be reused when you need to top up the results.
