Your smile has an immediate impact on those you meet – creating a lasting impression and influencing emotions. Did you know that wanting ‘whiter teeth’ is the number one request of patients when asked how they want to improve their smile? White teeth are associated with youth, health – even happiness – and according to a recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry – 99.7 percent of adult patients feel that a white smile is an important social asset. NW Calgary Dentists at Ranchlands Dental witness the positive effects teeth whitening has on teeth – and a person’s self-image.
Tooth Discoloration can be caused by numerous reasons – natural aging, staining due to taking certain medications, life-style choices (tobacco use), and genetic pre-disposition. For many patients, tooth discoloration consists of external stain that can benefit from a routine cleaning and polishing with a hygienist. However, for those who have the added challenge of trying to lighten teeth that have intrinsic staining (inside the tooth) caused by antibiotic use as a young child or as a result of root canal treatment or overuse of fluoride – it takes more than a polish to lighten the staining, with many patients achieving amazing results with a Home Teeth Whitening Kit.
Teeth Whitening Kits are one of the most effective, and convenient, smile enhancing tools to be used. Fast, comfortable, and painless – in just a few days patients witness an improvement in tooth color. Requiring just one short appointment to take molds of a person’s teeth and then a second appointment to try-in the custom made trays – a home whitening kit is ready to go as soon as you get home and often only has to be worn for 30 minutes twice a day (or longer for those who require it). Along with custom trays you will receive a quantity of whitening gel, which is easily dispersed in to the trays – the trays are then inserted and worn on both top and bottom teeth with the whitening gel immediately going to work to eradicate signs of stains and discoloration.
Dentists at Ranchlands Dental in NW Calgary explain that after just a few times of wearing the custom trays and whitening gel, a patient’s smile appears whiter and more youthful – with no trace of annoying stains caused by red wine, coffee, and certain foods. Teeth Whitening can be the Cosmetic Dental fix that many patients are hoping for – as it’s both effective and economical and can be repeated if needed.
