Clean white teeth have become the top aesthetic topic for most dental patients. Tooth whitening is a non-invasive treatment that changes the colour of your natural tooth enamel, enhancing your smile and confidence.
All new Able Dental patients who have a complete dental exam receive custom-fit whitening trays, included in the new-patient exam fee.
Many people use home tooth-whitening products which whiten teeth dramatically. But whitening works only on natural tooth enamel. To achieve success, you should consider replacement of old restorations (fillings and crowns). New restorations are installed after the whitening process to ensure a colour match.
Details Of Your Visit
Teeth whitening is done for the following reasons:
- Fluorosis: excessive fluoridation during tooth development.
- Normal wear of your outer tooth layer.
- Stains caused by medications, smoking or coffee/tea consumption.
You’ll require two visits with your Able dentist, one to create impressions of your teeth to produce clear plastic trays, the second to fit and adjust the trays.
Typically you will wear the trays with a whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for two weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening and whitening method.
