There is a dental problem that affects a lot of people all over the world, even if they are very careful to practice good dental hygiene: discoloured teeth. This is the darkening of teeth due to a variety of different reasons. Discoloured teeth can be a source of great embarrassment to many people and can often make you look older than you actually are. Most people who have this problem suffer from a great loss in confidence and find themselves unable to smile or laugh without reservation.
Many people have teeth that have become yellow or discoloured due to a variety of reasons. The main reason for a person’s teeth to become yellow is age. Another reason could be that they consume food and drinks such as tea, coffee, or red wine in large quantities. Consuming tobacco, whether by chewing or smoking, can also cause teeth to get stained, as well as treatment with certain. A root canal treatment, in which the root of a tooth has been killed, can also cause a tooth to change in colour.
The simplest way to sort out this problem is to use a tooth whitening agent. There are many options for whitening your teeth in Vancouver and we offer them to you at our dental practice in downtown Vancouver. They are able to lighten the colour of the tooth considerably, often up to eight shades! You will get a brighter smile after treatment and will look considerably younger and more attractive.
At Bay Dental we offer you very good teeth whitening treatments in the form of professional, in-office whitening and take-home whitening. We use whitening products that contain hydrogen peroxide as an active ingredient. These whitening products result in the release of oxygen, which bleaches the enamel of your teeth.
For our in-office whitening, we apply these products to your teeth after protecting your gums with a rubber shield or a gel first. Results will vary, but your teeth will be considerable whiter for a long time!
For our take-home whitening, we will provide you with trays that are made from impressions we take of your teeth to guarantee accurate results. By using the trays with our professional-strength teeth whitening gel, in about a week, your teeth will have lightened significantly!
Both these treatments are reasonably long-lasting and your teeth will be noticeable whiter! Needless to say, you have to take good care of them and should avoid doing the same things that caused your teeth to get discoloured in the first place. Our Vancouver dental professionals will explain the various options available to you and you can select the one that is most suited to your needs. Simply contact us today for further information!
