Teeth Whitening in North York - Teeth Whitening in Toronto
Your teeth may look smooth and hard, but the surface of a tooth is actually quite porous. As a result, many of the things that we think of as staining, like coffee, tea, or fruit juice, can also, over time, discolour your teeth.
While this is entirely natural, some people are dissatisfied with yellow or stained teeth. Fortunately, there are solutions for tooth whitening in North York, available at Dentistry on Bayview. Come see Dr. Chung, your dentist in North York, today.
We offer a variety of solutions for tooth whitening:
Take-home tooth whitening kits are a popular solution. These kits consist of strips that you apply to your teeth at home. They work by temporarily opening the porous structures of the teeth, and releasing the stains. They may cause transient tooth sensitivity, because while the dental pores are enlarged, your nerves receive more stimulation. These treatments typically are applied on a daily basis over the course of a week or more.
Power bleaching is an option that will yield more immediate results. This procedure is performed here at Dentistry on Bayview. It works by applying a bleaching agent, typically hydrogen peroxide, to the teeth. While this has been demonstrated to have no adverse effects on tooth enamel, the gums have to be completely isolated during the procedure. Power bleaching is an effective option for those who hope to see results now, instead of in a few weeks.
If you’re dissatisfied with discolouration of your teeth, or if you’ve noticed unsightly stains, please contact your North York cosmetic dentist, Dr. Chung, at Dentistry On Bayview, or book an appointment online.
Alternatively, if your teeth are too damaged to be treated with tooth whitening, there are other procedures that can be discussed, such as veneers, or fillings.
