Why Teeth Darken
With age, teeth become more vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. Particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel, and products like coffee, tea, berries and tobacco are notorious for staining teeth.
Teeth Whitening in Ontario: How It Works
Teeth whitening uses bleaching agents that are peroxide-based and designed to try and make the colour of your teeth lighter. Oxygen acts on the tooth enamel as the active ingredient breaks down, creating the whitening effect.
Some commercially available whitening products can have abrasive substances that can wear away your tooth's enamel.
That's why professional teeth whitening can be considered one of the safest methods of whitening teeth.
With the in-office and take-home treatment options offered at Toothworks Dental Clinics, you may be able to enjoy a lighter smile.
- In-Office Treatment
We will start by placing a shield on your gums to guard them against the whitening solution, and then apply the product to your teeth using a custom mouthguard-like tray.
Next, we will activate the solution using a dental laser to break down stains and discolouration on your teeth.
- Take-Home Treatment
We also offer take-home teeth whitening kits, so you can lighten your teeth from the comfort of your home using a custom whitening tray.
