You first noticed your “yellow” teeth in a picture and now every time you look in the mirror that’s the first thing you notice. It’s gotten to the point where you hate smiling in public.
Having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many of our patients. The solution to a whiter brighter smile is of course Teeth Whitening. When you come to Evolve Dental for your Teeth Whitening, you won’t stop smiling!
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a procedure that removes stains and discolouration from teeth. At Evolve Dental Healing we want to provide you with products that not only work well but are also gentle on your teeth and body. It is for this reason that we recommend professional teeth whitening products that lighten your teeth without using harsh chemicals which can cause tooth sensitivity or compromise your health.
Discolouration can be the result of a combination of things:
- Poor oral hygiene
- The effects of aging
- Certain foods
Whitening techniques will only work for staining caused by some medications if the discolouration is very mild. Teeth that are discoloured because of medication or excessive fluoride are not always good candidates for the whitening procedure. Veneers are the best solution for more severe discolouration cases. Once you reach our office, our dentist will let you know the best solution for you.
We can change all this and give you a “Movie Star” smile around an hour.
First, we check the teeth for cavities as the whitening gel can cause serious damage if it leaks into these areas. If cavities are found, they must be repaired before tooth whitening takes place. If there are no cavities, we will begin the whitening process. The process is quick, easy, and comfortable. Under the dentists’ supervision, our whitening treatments are completely safe and will not harm teeth or gums.
We are delighted to offer our patients the latest in whitening procedures. The Natural In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe effective and very fast.
- First we will begin by removing the plaque that has built up along the gum line.
- Then, a protective covering will be placed over your gums to protect the soft tissue from the whitening agent.
- Then, we will apply the whitening gel to your teeth.
- The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced, mineral enriched Hydrogen Peroxide that gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discolouration.
- We also include custom whitening trays and gel for additional whitening at home or for maintenance.
In around an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Natural Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of in-chair in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy patient.
Under the supervision of our dentist, our whitening treatments are completely safe and will not harm teeth or gums. Using our custom made trays and whitening gels, our whitening system lasts a long time. This means you will experience very little whitening loss over time if you maintain good dental habits.
1 First an impression of your teeth will be taken. It will be used as a mold to make custom whitening trays that look like a mouth guard.
2 When the whitening trays are ready you will test to make sure the trays fit properly to the teeth.
3 Instructions will be provided on how to use the trays in conjunction with the whitening gel.
4 The mineral enriched natural peroxide whitening gel is placed into the custom trays at home and worn for a certain amount of time each day (usually once or twice a day for 30 minutes for a 2 to 4 week period).
5 The custom-made tray minimises the whitening gel’s contact with the gum tissue and gives you an even whitening result across your teeth even if your teeth are crowded or unevenly spaced.
The advantage of using dentist-supervised whitening is that teeth can be properly assessed to have the correct chemical concentration, correct method and length of treatment and to be sure you are suitable to have your teeth whitened.
