Professional teeth whitening service: For a smile that sparkles in London ON
Downtown Dental Centre strives to exceed your expectations with effective professional teeth whitening service in London, ON designed to suit you, your schedule, and budget. As with all our services, teeth whitening is delivered in a comfortable and relaxing environment, by friendly staff who get results.
The “professional” difference
The global teeth whitening market is more than $13.3 billion (U.S. dollars) industry, according to Orbis Research. The teeth whitening products behind these numbers include chewing gums, toothpaste, gels, and kits that promise to remove stains for a dazzlingly brighter smile.
There is no denying the demand for a brighter, whiter smile; however, not all these products are created equal. Likewise, a Google search for “DIY teeth whitening” gets more than 15.9 million results. Homemade “whiteners” include lemon, apple cider vinegar, and baking soda scrubs and pastes. While these store-bought and home-made options may cost a comparatively little upfront, they do not contain the significantly higher strength bleaching formulas used by the dentists at Downtown Dental Centre. The products you buy at the store and the ingredients you have on hand for homemade recipes also don’t account for your personal physiology the way a dentist does. Without the guidance of a trained dental professional, your teeth and gums are vulnerable to damage from abrasive ingredients or one-size-fits-all store treatments.
Downtown Dental Centre teeth whitening is safe, produces noticeable results, and is customized to your smile. By partnering with dentists, you can also discuss just how “white” you want to go – we can create a many shades whiter smile in a single visit, or you can continue to whiten gradually until you like the smile you see staring back at you in the mirror.
The fastest, single-visit option is known as “in office whitening.” Your dentist takes great care to make sure surrounding tissues are protected before the whitening gel is applied. After the gel is evenly applied, the whitening ingredients are “activated.” You can see a sparkling, dramatically whiter smile in no time for that big event – wedding, job interview, reunion, or vacation.
The “gradually” whiter option is known as “at-home whitening.” We create a customized whitening kit. The kit includes dental trays that are designed to fit your mouth snugly and comfortably. They don’t irritate your gums the way those store-bought, one-size-fits-most kits might. The customization comes from designing trays based on an impression of your mouth. The kit also includes a powerful, prescription-strength whitening gel. The gel is placed in the tray. You wear the tray as directed by your dentist. It may be worn each day, for about an hour. You can even wear the trays overnight until you achieve the desired result. Since the trays are custom-fitted to your mouth, you don’t have to worry about uneven results.
Keep the sparkle in your smile!
Many of Downtown Dental Centre’s patients opt for a combination approach. They may get a jump-start with in-office whitening, and then they love the results so much that they opt for a customized whitening kit applied on their schedule. Oral health often translates to a beautifully whiter smile. Here are some more things you can do to keep your mouth looking its healthy best:
- Maintain recall visits to our office. During these visits, you’ll also get a professional cleaning. These cleanings remove what your toothbrush and floss can’t: hardened plaque or tartar. Patients love the fresh sensation of clean and are often impressed by just how much whiter their teeth look after the cleaning!
- The color of your teeth is affected by what you eat and drink. All the foods that can stain fabrics can also stain your teeth. Consider cutting back on tea, red wine, coffee, or soda. Also, think about integrating more “cleansing” foods into your stain-free diets, such as fibrous apples and crunchy, nutritious carrots.
- Sometimes, discoloration is indicative of an oral health problem; for instance, cavities can appear as dark spots or pits. Again, healthy teeth are often beautiful teeth.
Also, Downtown Dental Centre ensures your teeth and gums are healthy first before moving forward with teeth whitening. Restored teeth, including fillings and crowns, aren’t amenable to bleaching agents. We’ll discuss options for treatment with you. Call (855) 669-0775 to schedule an appointment at our London office.
