Want a whiter, brighter smile? Teeth whitening is a simple, safe, non-invasive way to get rid of unwanted stains that build up on everyone’s teeth over time. Whitening can bring back the natural colour of your teeth, and it is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Getting whiter teeth has become the number one aesthetic concern for many people. While there are many ways to get whiter teeth, the most popular way is to use a professional home teeth-whitening system.
My Family Dentist sells custom take-home whitening kits, which are available for only $300.00(touch up kits are only $40.00). This product is available for existing patients only. Not an existing patient? You can become one by giving us a call and booking your exam and cleaning today.
This approach will whiten teeth dramatically for most people. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old white fillings, crowns, etc. to match the newly bleached teeth. Teeth whitening is not a one-time permanent solution to discoloured teeth. A touch-up maybe needed every several years – more often if you drink coffee, tea, or wine, or smoke.
Reasons for teeth whitening
- Normal discolouration, which occurs over time
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
