What is Teeth Whitening?
Through the use of a custom-made delivery system and the latest in teeth-whitening technology, you can have whiter and brighter teeth.
Teeth whitening at the Ottawa Denture & Implant Centre is a simple and effective process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. Our system uses a peroxide-based gel retained in a custom-fitted appliance that is worn over your teeth. It can be used during the day or while you sleep.
What Causes Tooth Discolouration?
There are several causes of tooth discolouration. The most common are aging, staining substances (coffee, tea, soda, tobacco), trauma, tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, and nerve degeneration.
Who Can Benefit from Teeth Whitening?
Almost everyone with natural teeth can benefit! However, there are cases where treatment may not be effective. A Denturist at the Ottawa Denture & Implant Centre will determine if you are a visible candidate following a thorough examination.
The tooth-whitening system is ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth and would like to have a whiter, brighter smile. The whitening process is most effective on mildly discoloured teeth. Darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, take longer to respond to treatment. The degree of whiteness will vary from person to person, depending on the structure of the teeth and how long the system is used.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Take?
Results are usually seen following the first treatment. The best results generally occur when the process is continued for 10 to 14 nights.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
Teeth will always be lighter than they were. However, some patients may need periodic re-whitening for one or two nights, every four to six months.
