Teeth Whitening Mississauga
A cosmetic technique called teeth whitening can lighten the shade of your teeth and erase stains or discoloration brought on by aging, medications, or lifestyle factors like drinking coffee, tea, or wine or smoking. It is crucial to keep in mind that the whitening results of the operation are not long-lasting, therefore, routine touch-up procedures may be required to keep the desired shade.
Both at-home and in-office teeth whitening procedures are available. At our clinic, our dentists will often take a before and after photo of your teeth to track your progress and compare the new lighter shade throughout the treatment.
In-office Teeth Whitening
This treatment is a quick and convenient way to achieve a brighter smile, capable of lightening your teeth by six to ten shades. The procedure uses a special, light-activated whitening gel (usually containing hydrogen peroxide) and typically takes between 30 to 90 minutes to complete. It may require multiple visits to the dentist's office to reach the desired shade.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
With this option, our dentists will take an impression of your teeth to create custom-fit mouth trays. You will be given a supply of bleaching gel (usually containing hydrogen peroxide) to apply to the trays and instructed to wear them for a certain amount of time. It is important to use only the prescribed amount of whitening gel as excessive use can cause irritation to the gums.
Risks and Precautions
At-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments can potentially cause temporary tooth sensitivity for some people. This side effect typically subsides a few days after the treatment is complete. It is important to note that pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should avoid teeth whitening treatments.
