Liberty Dental is a team of caring dentists that practice cosmetic dentistry as well as restorative. We perform teeth whitening for those who desire to have a brighter smile. Having teeth whitened by our Richmond Hills cosmetic dentist is easy and simple when done at our offices or using a take home treatment.
Many different substances can stain and discolor teeth. Wine, nicotine, coffee and other substances can cause teeth to become yellowed, brown or discolored. Aging can also cause the teeth’s color to become duller. Sometimes chemical damage can also harm teeth. Using over the counter procedures or whitening toothpastes can actually end up harming the teeth and damaging the enamel, so it is not recommended to try over the counter bleaching kits. Our simple procedure uses a bleaching process that is inexpensive and safe. It can be done on any area of the mouth, for instance, both upper and lower teeth, and only the upper set, depending on the severity of discoloration. During your initial consultation, our Richmond Hills cosmetic dentist will take a custom made bleach tray for your mouth made individually for you. Everyone’s mouth is different, so we need to ensure that the trays fit each individual mouth in order to have the correct amount of bleach applied to the teeth.
Within a couple of days, after your trays are ready, we will call you in to pick them up here Richmond Hills cosmetic dentist. The at home process is quick and easy – you simply add the special bleaching agents into the splints and wear them for a few hours each day. The bleach is clear and safe, and will begin to bubble. This means the bleach is working to remove the stains out of the tooth enamel without harming the structure of the tooth or any dental work that may have been done. After the level of whiteness is reached, only an occasional treatment is needed to maintain the smile. Bleaching can correct brown mottled tooth staining and works on people of any age. It can be maintained for many years with proper maintenance and brushing and flossing techniques.
