Why do my teeth discoulor?
Teeth whitening is a common procedure in general dentistry. As a person ages, the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth. Teeth can also be stained by foods, tobacco, certain antibiotics, and bacterial pigments. We offer both in-surgery whitening and a home whitening kit.
Patheodent can help!
Opalescence™ Boost™ professional teeth whitening is applied by your oral hygienist right in the dental office to give you a white smile fast! No hot or uncomfortable LED teeth whitening lights are necessary because it is chemically activated.
In-surgery Whitening is an hour procedure with preparations that are safe and effective. In the procedure, the stains are oxidized from the tooth structure. Various protective barriers will be placed over your eyes, cheeks, lips, and gums. Then the active gel will be coated over the teeth and left in place for 20 minutes, repeated three times.
Home Whitening Kit
The home whitening kit contains a customized teeth whitening tray tailored to your teeth. There are five concentrations of teeth whitening gel for maximum treatment flexibility each with different wear times as short as 15 minutes per day, or as long as overnight. Opalescence teeth whitening gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride for patient comfort and there are three flavours to choose from Regular, Melon, and Mint. The trays will be filled with a small amount of gel and then worn each night for approximately ten nights depending on the result you require.
In some cases, we may choose to make use of both the home kit and the in-chair system using the advantages of both to obtain the best possible result. For optimal results, we recommend an initial oral hygiene appointment before you start the whitening process.
