If your teeth have lost their healthy, pearly white appearance, you are not alone. Aging, poor diet, and dental injuries can all cause dull and yellowing teeth.
At Burnhamthorpe Dental in Etobicoke, teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry process that restores stained or discoloured teeth to a healthy, natural colour and is considered to be a a very safe procedure under the supervision of a dental professional.
The results from whitening can last for as long as a year and with touch-ups treatments done at home every few months results can last even longer. "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that can stain teeth such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Some patients may experience heightened tooth or gum sensitivity during and after the treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the procedure.
Reason for Tooth Discolouration include:
Drinking coffee, tea, wine or soft drinks stains teeth
Natural aging – The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens
Smoking or any tobacco use stains teeth
Accidents – a dead nerve will darken a tooth
