The appearance of your smile is important to how you feel about yourself. Unfortunately, one-third of adults do not like how their teeth look. Among the biggest complaints involves tooth discoloration. While darkening of the enamel is a natural part of the aging process, lifestyle habits and certain foods can cause stains to develop. This can cause the severity of discoloration to progress prematurely. Thankfully, you can get a bright smile with your dentist in North York, Dr. Eli Shem-Tov. Our professional whitening treatment will remove tough tooth discoloration for a confident smile.
Benefit from Noticeable Results
Over time, your teeth will begin to show their age as they turn yellow or brown. However, consuming foods and drinks that are known to cause stains, such as berries and coffee, will cause the teeth to darken more quickly. In addition, lifestyle factors, like poor oral hygiene and tobacco use, will also amplify discoloration. In some cases, medications will also cause your teeth to darken.
As you begin to lose your white smile, you have probably considered over-the-counter whitening products. Although they are widely available and convenient, they do not contain professional-grade whitening agents. As a result, you will not notice any real results. If your teeth do become whiter, the results will not last. The only way to achieve drastic, lasting results is with professional teeth whitening in North York.
Get a Bright, White Smile
At North York Dental, Dr. Shem-Tov uses the Zoom! Whitening System. This safe and effective treatment is patient and dentist preferred because it is fast and comfortable. After performing an initial consultation, Dr. Shem-Tov will decide if you are a candidate for the treatment.
During the whitening process, your lips and gums are prepared to prevent irritation. Then, the Zoom! Whitening Gel is applied to your teeth using trays. The whitening gel is a specially formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide. The trays allow for the even distribution of the whitening agent to provide consistent results.
Dr. Shem-Tov then uses a special light, which activates the whitening agents. With the light in place, the agent deeply penetrates the enamel to lift away tough stains. The light will remain in place for about 15 minutes. The whitening sessions will be repeated two more times. At the end of the treatment, we will give you a quick five-minute fluoride treatment to protect the teeth while reducing sensitivity. The entire process takes about an hour.
In just one appointment, your teeth will be six to ten shades whiter. However, do not be surprised if you continue to notice discoloration fading even days after the initial procedure. With the right aftercare, your bright new smile will last. We offer an at-home touch-up kit to maintain your results.
