Safe professional teeth whitening for healthy, bright smiles in East Gwillimbury
When you think about people whose smiles you admire, they likely have at least one thing in common – bright, white teeth. Teeth that are sparkling and free from discolorations send others the message that you are vibrant, healthy, and confident. At Harvest Hills Dental Care, we understand the value of a terrific smile and offer professional teeth whitening options that are safe and effective for our patients in the East Gwillimbury, ON area.
Causes of tooth stains and discoloration
A number of factors in our daily lives can affect the color of our teeth. Tooth stains and discolorations can be caused by:
- Foods and beverages: deeply pigmented foods and drinks like tea, wine, coffee, and berries can all leave stains that last well beyond the time you spend eating and drinking them
- Tobacco: Smoking and chewing tobacco stain teeth yellow or brown, which can affect just a few teeth or your whole smile depending on your habits
- Medications: certain medications, such as tetracycline or anti-hypertensive medications, can cause tooth staining
- Age: the translucent enamel layer on teeth gets thinner as we age, which causes the yellow-colored dentin below to be more visible in our smile and cause a yellowed appearance
Professional teeth whitening: a safe and effective option
While there are many options for whitening your teeth that you can grab at your local grocery store or pharmacy, they tend to provide sub-optimal results and can lead to pain and sensitivity because they contain harsh chemicals and tend to stray onto your sensitive gums rather than staying on your teeth due to their “one-size-fits-all” approach.
With professional teeth whitening at Harvest Hills Dental Care, we customize your treatment for a safer and more comfortable experience and stunning results. First, we create whitening trays based on dental impressions of your unique smile so that the whitening gel is concentrated only on your teeth and not spread throughout your mouth. Additionally, the medical-grade whitening gel uses stronger, safe ingredients that effectively penetrate stains and brighten your teeth rather than just lifting surface stains.
