Have you considered Teeth Whitening?
You probably should, of your teeth appear to be stained or yellowish in colour. This can happen because of consuming coffee, tea, red wine, Coca-Cola and other sodas, tomato sauce, energy drinks, curry sauce, beet and berry over a period of time. Smoking is another reason why your teeth appear to be stained.
Well, any food that contains acidic products such as lemon and soda has the effect of wearing out the enamel on the teeth. When the enamel is worn down, it starts picking up the same colouration of the foods and beverages you consume, causing staining of the teeth.
Sure, that shouldn’t stop you from having coffee, tea or your favourite dishes – as long as you learn to take care of your teeth properly. Have you been rinsing and brushing your teeth as you should?
Regular brushing and rinsing could help wash away some of the staining components. And yes, you should most definitely put an end to bad habits such as smoking or smoking marijuana and follow proper oral hygiene.
Also, and this is important – have your teeth routinely cleaned by the dental hygienists at the Westgate Dental Centre and then go through a systematic teeth whitening procedure with us.
Teeth Whitening at Westgate Dental Centre
Teeth whitening could really help improve the overall appearance of your teeth. It can help get rid of the stains and discolouration of the teeth, which is the most common dental problem faced by adults (and teens) here in Maple Ridge.
At the Maple Ridge-based Westgate Dental Centre, we have a team of experienced dentists working for us who can help make your teeth whiter, shinier and brighter.
Let us understand more about this procedure.
How Teeth Whitening Works?
At the Westgate Dental Centre, we make use of the most advanced technologies such as a laser for the teeth whitening. While in the past, teeth whitening used to take multiple visits to the dentist’s office, these days because of new and advanced technologies this can be done in a single dental appointment.
Here’s how this works.
First, a gum guard is placed in your mouth. This is done to protect your gums and lips from the whitening gel.
Then the whitening gel is applied carefully.
Following this, the dentist may make use of a traditional method called bleaching, where they brush the teeth with a special bleach mixed in toothpaste.
They may make use of laser technology, wherein your teeth are exposed to an LED laser beam for about 3 or 4 times for about 15 minutes a time.
The tooth whitening system used by our dentists at the Westgate Dental Centre is fast and painless. You might experience a slight sensitivity in the teeth, but that’s perfectly normal. Your dentist will be in control throughout the procedure and special care will be taken to ensure that you’re comfortable at every stage.
