No matter their age, everyone wants a whiter, brighter smile. Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and you deserve to have a confident smile for all situations. Pickering residents can turn to Esquire Dental Centres for the best, safest cosmetic teeth whitening options to brighten their smiles. As your teeth take on darker shades each year, they can make you look older. Yellowing from food, coffee, wine and other factors can make your teeth lose their luster. Often, patients have several questions about the best way to get the brightest smile. Here, the experienced cosmetic dentists at Esquire Dental Centres answer some common questions they hear from patients:
What Treatment Options Do You Offer? Which Is Best?
Esquire Dental Centres gives patients two options: in-office treatments or at-home trays. Both give the same results. The treatment you choose is based on cost and convenience. In-office treatment offers the quickest way to whiten your teeth, usually in under an hour. Several appointments may be needed to achieve dramatic results. This is also the most expensive option. At-home treatment consists of a tray that fits around your teeth and contains a whitening solution. You wear the tray for a few hours each day for up to a month to achieve the color you desire.
Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Hurt?
The actual treatment process itself isn’t painful. Some patients report a brief tingling sensation immediately after. Some patients report having more sensitive teeth after whitening, but we can offer some solutions to help combat that feeling.
Will Teeth Whitening Harm My Teeth Or Other Dental Work?
The materials we use in office and in our at-home kits do not damage tooth enamel or tooth restorations such as tooth-colored fillings, crowns and veneers.
How Long Will My Teeth Stay White?
Teeth whitening isn’t permanent. You can expect your results to last for a year, but certain foods and beverages can diminish the effects. The condition of your teeth and the type of staining will factor into the degree of whitening you can achieve.
