NW Calgary Dentists at Ranchlands Dental love helping patients achieve a smile that is healthy – and beautiful. Teeth Whitening may be a simple, yet effective procedure that can literally transform a patient’s smile, all in the comfort of their own home. Safe, fast and affordable – today’s teeth whitening kits offer a solution to patients who are unhappy with the color of their teeth – due to staining, darkening as we age, or to correct conditions like Fluorosis (exposure to too much fluoride when teeth are developing).
Teeth Whitening in Calgary has never been easier, more effective or more affordable – as companies who manufacture tooth whitening gels have improved formulas so that patient comfort and satisfaction is never compromised. Availability of different bleaching strengths allows patients to whiten their teeth to a level that they are comfortable with – with some people wanting a super white smile and others electing to subtly improve the overall color of their teeth. The convenience of different bleaching strengths and ingredients means that even people who suffer from tooth sensitivity can take advantage of this smile enhancing procedure.
How does tooth whitening work? Your dental team at Ranchlands dental custom fabricate trays for you to wear during the whitening process. The trays fit snugly over top and bottom teeth and hold the bleaching gel tightly against tooth surfaces. A small amount of whitening gel is placed in each tray and the trays are worn anywhere from one to seven hours – depending on the type of whitening system being used. The bleaching trays are so comfortable that patients can easily go about their day – run errands if need be or sit and enjoy a good movie while teeth are being whitened. Most patients report a significant difference in the color of their teeth within one week – some within three days – making teeth whitening a great option if you have a big event coming up and want to look your best.
Will my teeth be sensitive? It’s normal to have very mild sensitivity while whitening your teeth – it’s a normal response to the bleaching gel and will disappear once the process is complete. The advances made to today’s whitening solutions have addressed tooth sensitivity – with chemical buffers that combat sensitivity being added to whitening gels. The team at Ranchlands Dental are able to make recommendations to enhance the tooth whitening process and avoid any sensitivity.
