The beautiful effects of teeth whitening in London Ontario
If you want to make a great first impression, a vibrant white smile can be a real asset – but even with diligent oral care, teeth can become stained and discolored. Whether due to foods and beverages, smoking, or medicine, thousands of people in London Ontario turn to professional teeth whitening for stunning results. If you are looking to enhance your smile with teeth whitening, the team at Downtown Dental Centre has options to give you the result you deserve.
Professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure and can be completed either in a single office visit or over the course of several weeks at home.
In-office teeth whitening
In-office bleaching is a great option for patients who have a busy schedule and need to whiten their teeth quickly. After one appointment, patients will leave the office with a whiter smile.
At-home custom kits
For patients who wish to whiten the smile gradually, we offer at-home custom kits. During your consultation, we’ll take impressions to create custom fit whitening trays. Once the trays are complete, we’ll provide the whitening gel and instructions for how to apply the gel and how long to wear the trays.
Side-effects of teeth whitening
Since teeth whitening is such a common procedure, many patients don’t think about the potential side effects. While professional teeth whitening can be safer than over the counter methods because of the professional supervision, it’s still advised to be aware of the side effects that can occur. It’s important to note that most of these side effects are temporary and will resolve within a few hours or days.
- Gum Irritation – Gums may experience temporary swelling or redness from the whitening agent.
- Tooth Sensitivity – This is a common side effect and may include increased sensitivity to hot or cold food. If you suffer from tooth sensitivity regularly, make sure to let the dentist know.
The best way to ensure minimal sensitivity, irritation, and other side effects is to have your teeth whitened professionally. If you would like to schedule a consultation with the team at Downtown Dental Centre in Ontario, please call us today at (855) 669-0775.
