Reasons for Staining of Teeth
If you have yellow-stained teeth, it is advisable to identify the culprit before visiting us for teeth whitening in North West Edmonton. Some common causes of discoloured teeth are:
Consumption of tea and coffee
Use of Tobacco
Excessive fluoride intake
Prolonged consumption of particular food
Your diet or medications will continue to stain your teeth even after whitening if you don’t take precautions. We will also advise you on how to maintain your white, dazzling smile with regular dental check-ups.
HOW DOES TEETH WHITENING WORK?
The enamel, or the hard outer layer of your teeth, is porous, and your teeth stain because particles work their way into these pores. Typical bleaching chemicals also go deep into the pores to break apart the stains. Most bleaching chemicals can also brighten your teeth beyond their natural shade as well.
Our dentist will perform safe and reliable teeth whitening procedures in a controlled environment of the dental clinic for faster and more satisfying results. Ensure that you don’t drink coffee or ingest any other staining agents within 48 hours of the procedure: the pores in your enamel will be more open than usual, making them easy to stain again.
TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE
A dental hygienist starts the treatment by cleaning your teeth. Our dentist then inserts a rubber dam to cover up and protect your gums, followed by applying teeth whitening gel onto your teeth. The kits have a special light to activate the gel for quicker, more effective whitening. Finally, the dentist cleans off any residue from teeth and repeats the process if needed. The resulting difference can be as much as 10 shades lighter than your teeth were originally. At Westmount Dental Centre in Edmonton, we proudly use Spa Dent for maximum teeth whitening benefits. Spa Dent whitening is an in-office LED light-activated system providing sensitivity-free results 2 - 8 shades whiter. For more information on how Spa Dent teeth whitening works, learn more here.
