Dentist in London, ON offers safe, effective teeth whitening for life
Teeth naturally range in color from light grey to yellow. But, as we get older, the natural shade of our teeth darkens. The lighter-colored enamel that protects our teeth can thin, and expose the darker dentin layer underneath. Additionally, our habits and dietary choices can “show up” on our teeth, as staining foods and tobacco penetrate the outermost layers and produce discoloration. If you’re looking for a teeth whitening dentist ‘near me’ in London ON, Drs Giulio Spagnuolo or Dave Charrette are your doctors. They can restore the natural color of your teeth safely, effectively, quickly, and affordably.
How it’s done
If Drs Spagnuolo or Charrette determine you are a great candidate for teeth whitening, they will create a kit customized to your unique needs and characteristics. Many We Smile Dentistry patients can benefit from this approach to teeth whitening; however, Drs Spagnuolo or Charrette also confirm that your teeth and gums are healthy before moving forward with treatment. Active decay or gum disease must be resolved before undergoing a professional whitening program. In fact, discolored areas can be signs of tooth decay. We’ll also discuss options for treatments should you have crowns or other restorations that need to be lightened. Restored teeth don’t respond to whitening treatments.
Unlike off-the-shelf whitening kits, the professional kits that Drs Spagnuolo and Charrette provide are made to fit each patient; for instance, as a patient, you receive an application tray. This tray is designed to fit comfortably yet snugly in your mouth, conforming to the specific contours of your teeth and gums. We will show you how to fill the tray with the professional whitening gel.
The gel is further customized to your needs. The concentration of active ingredients in the gel can vary from patient to patient, depending on factors such as the level of improvement that is desired, and the risk of tooth sensitivity.
The kits that you can buy online or at the store often don’t contain the correct ingredients clinically-proven to break up and lift stain molecules. Even if they contain the right active ingredients, these substances are often not sufficiently concentrated in the gel to make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your teeth. Drs Spagnuolo and Charrette have access to professional whitening products that are proven to lighten teeth. So, when worn as directed, patients can enjoy several shades of whiter teeth. Results are achieved gradually, from the comfort and convenience of home.
