Teeth Whitening By Georgian Square Dental


Teeth Whitening - Blog by Georgian Square Dental

Did you know that when you don’t feel confident about your teeth, it can interfere with your self-esteem and prevent you from enjoying a social life? Usually, minor imperfections like dullness, stains, and discoloration of the teeth can impact their look and your overall smile. Thankfully, professional teeth whitening is an option if you desire dazzling pearly whites. Advancements in cosmetic dentistry over the last several years have made teeth whitening safer and more affordable for almost anyone wanting a brighter smile.

At Georgian Square Dental, we offer various teeth whitening options to help you improve your smile and build your confidence. Our teeth whitening services include:

1. In-Office Treatment Platinum Package
Here, our dental team professionally applies whitening products to the teeth to help remove stains, discoloration and make the teeth whiter. The procedure takes as little as a one-hour appointment every week for three weeks.

2. At-Home and In-Office treatment combo Gold Package
With this treatment package, we professionally apply the whitening products to your teeth while you’re at our dental office. This process must be carried out once a week for three weeks. After the third in-office visit, we make custom-fit trays for you to use at home to whiten your teeth.

3. At-Home Treatment Silver Package
Under this package, we have custom-fit trays made in our dental office to hold the whitening product. They are customized to your needs and conveniently designed and packaged for you to take home and use as directed.

Although teeth whitening is a simple procedure, it should only be carried out by a professional dental team. At Georgian Square Dental, we have extensive experience in teeth whitening. During an initial consultation, we will discuss and carefully assess your current dental condition and explain what degree of whitening we could realistically expect to help you achieve. Our dentists cover the gums with a protective covering, and the whitening substance is applied to the teeth. The time needed for a single whitening process is around thirty to ninety minutes.

You can also try the teeth whitening process at home. For this, our dentists may provide you with a mouthpiece and a whitening gel. You can wear the mouthpiece for a requisite time as prescribed by the dentist to obtain desired results.

The effects of teeth whitening usually last for about one to two years, although the results will depend on your diet and lifestyle. For example, if you smoke, you may need to have your teeth whitened more often than other people. Black coffee and red wine are also teeth-staining culprits, which may mean you have to get your teeth whitened sooner. Touch-up re-whitening can be easily achieved by applying a bespoke, custom-made tray containing whitening gel at home every six months or so.

Another alternative to getting whiter teeth is off-the-shelf teeth whitening toothpaste and solutions. However, custom trays and treatment under a qualified dentist are definitely more effective. Teeth whitening doesn’t cost as much as plastic surgery! A touch-up kit after an in-office treatment will be enough to prolong the effect of your teeth whitening. The combination of teeth whitening plus an at-home enhancer is a small price tag that produces big results.
