Teeth Whitening in Grange
Over time, teeth become discoloured due to ageing, staining, and damage. However, you can restore your white, bright smile with treatments for teeth whitening at Grange Dental Care. We offer in-chair and take-home teeth whitening services so you can choose the option that is most convenient for your schedule and budget.
Why Do Teeth Get Discoloured?
Teeth are more prone to staining from dark-coloured and highly acidic foods and drinks, such as red wine and coffee. Additionally, the nicotine in tobacco products can cause accelerated staining of the teeth.
Time and ageing allow these stains to build-up on the teeth, which can make your teeth yellow. Certain medications also stain the teeth, and the porous enamel allows stains to seep through.
We offer in-chair or take-home teeth whitening treatments at Grange Dental Care. First, we clean your mouth thoroughly and address any underlying gum issues, cavities, or plaque build-up.
Teeth Whitening at Grange Dental Care
In-chair whitening is performed in our practice under the supervision of our highly-trained dentist and dental assistant. A rubber shield is placed over your gums to protect them from the bleaching solution, and the gel is applied carefully to your teeth. The bleaching gel contains powerful hydrogen peroxide, which quickly and effectively removes extrinsic staining from your teeth under an hour. Many patients see their teeth whiten by 6-8 shades in just one visit.
Take-home whitening kits allow you to whiten your teeth at home at your convenience. The bleaching trays are custom-fitted to your teeth, and you wear them either at night or during the day for short intervals. While this takes longer, you can still achieve impressive results with this teeth whitening treatment in Grange and it is a great option to maintain your smile between dental visits.
Sometimes stains penetrate deep into the dentin of the tooth, where the bleaching gel cannot safely reach. These are called intrinsic stains. In these cases, you may need another cosmetic option, such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns to restore your bright smile.
