Dreaming of a beautiful smile? Invisible braces like Invisalign are very popular, especially among adults. They are a great option to straighten teeth yet avoid a ‘metal mouth’ smile.
A bright white smile is essential in making a great first impression. And while you may have tried to do this at home, only a professional teeth whitening will give you a long-lasting beautifully white smile.
Professional tooth whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade by using gentle peroxide-based solutions on the teeth held in clear trays. This removes discolouration by chemical means.
Professional whitening is very safe and effective on natural teeth. However, the whitening gels are not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam (mercury) fillings, metal or porcelain crowns, or dental bonding.
Teeth can discolour for various reasons, typically due to your favourite foods and drinks -- but also because of antibiotics or an injury. After an in-office examination, your dentist will establish the cause and nature of your tooth discolouration -- then recommend various types of whitening procedures available. You’ll learn what is involved with each treatment and how frequently you will need the treatment to keep your smile white and bright.
If you’re ready for a bright, beautifully white smile, speak to our dentist or your Aesthetix specialist.
