If you’re looking for a brighter, whiter smile, Toothville Family Dentistry can help! You may be surprised to learn that cosmetic dentistry procedures such as tooth whitening are our number one requested services. Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as Teeth Whitening can help you achieve your goal of achieving a “Hollywood Smile.” While many people buy an off the shelf teeth whitening solution, our in-office whitening procedure can produce better results in only a fraction of the time!

What is
Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening (bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile. Toothville Family Dentistry offers both in-office and take-home whitening services.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Boost self confidence
  • Younger looking appearance
  • Help make a positive first impression
  • Fix yellowing or stained teeth

What Causes Teeth Stains and Discolouration?

  • Tooth decay
  • Trauma to teeth
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Drinking coffee, tea, cola, and red wine
  • Smoking
  • Eating acidic foods
  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of the outer tooth layer

Is Teeth Whitening
Right for You?

If you are exploring whitening your teeth then it is always best to begin with a visit to Toothville. We can advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Those with yellowish stained teeth typically have better results than those with brownish or greyish hues. Also, keep in mind that teeth whitening has no effect on tooth-colored composite fillings, porcelain crowns or teeth that are bonded, so whitening will only make these teeth stand out from the ones that can be whitened.

Are Toothville Take Home Whitening Kits
More Effective than At-Home Whitening Products?

The professional whitening take-home kits that we offer at Toothville Family Dentistry takes approximately 15 minutes. After proper use, our clients have found results in as little as a few days. After ensuring that your gums and lips are protected, leaving only the teeth exposed, a bleaching agent made up of hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth and it does all the work!

Our office also dispenses take-home kits along with a custom-made mouthpieces so you can continue to whiten your teeth. These 10% carbamide peroxide (the bleaching agent) gels are generally used for two weeks in order to obtain the desired results. After the teeth whitening process is complete, you can continue to use these custom trays to touch up your whitening!

Keep in mind that the over-the-counter whitening kits also contain carbamide peroxide, but you won’t get the custom-fitted mouthpiece, and your saliva tends to weaken the effectiveness of the gel and the level of peroxide used in over-counter kits is not as strong as supplied by your dentist.

Are There Any Side Effects to
Tooth Whitening?

Some people may experience sensitive teeth after using these bleaching agents. This is usually temporary and goes away after completion of the whitening process. Others can notice irritation of their gums – especially when using generic bleaching trays, not the custom made ones that we provide you with. This sensitivity can be because the gums can come in contact with the bleaching agent.

If you are experiencing side effects, you should always bring thee to our attention. This way we can advise you on whether they what you are experiencing is typical or not.

Can I go Overboard on
Tooth Whitening?

The answer to this is a solid yes! We know that bleaching can become addictive for some people who never feel that their teeth are white enough! This can become dangerous because too much exposure to peroxide solution may cause the tooth enamel to appear translucent and increase your teeth and gum sensitivity and irritation.

So our advice is always to be safe and know when to say when. We always recommend that you have whitened your teeth enough when  the colour of your teeth match the whites of your eyes!

If you want to ensure your safety, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with Toothville Family Dentistry and let us reveal your smile! So please call us to set up an appointment time so we can meet and discuss how we can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile.
