Over the course of time, it is completely natural for teeth to change colour. No matter how well you care for them, some discolouration is inevitable for your “pearly whites”. Substances such as coffee and tea, certain medications, and genetics and aging can gradually tarnish your teeth. Yellow, stained teeth usually have a dramatic negative effect on your smile. Fortunately, at Appleway Dental Clinics, we provide both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments in Red Deer and surrounding areas to improve your smile easily.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
The enamel of your teeth becomes porous over time, causing the surfaces of the teeth to absorb colours from what we eat and drink. This results in reducing the overall brightness of your smile, darkening the teeth. One of the easiest and effective solutions to fight discolouration is teeth whitening. It involves bleaching the enamel of your teeth.
One of the effective methods to brighten your smile is to ensure that you are receiving professional whitening treatments by our dentists. At Appleway Dental Clinics, we offer both in-office whitening systems and at-home whitening kits.
In-office Whitening Systems
In-office teeth whitening is performed here at our Red Deer and Stettler practices. These systems allow patients to brighten their smile in as little as one hour. Using a professional teeth whitening solution, our dentist will carefully apply the bleach to the enamel, and specialized lights activate the bleaching agents. This results in whitening the teeth anywhere between six to nine shades lighter by removing discolouration and stains.
At-home Whitening Kits
At-home teeth whitening kits are available for your convenience. At our practice, we will create custom-fabricated whitening trays based on impressions of your dental arches. To bleach the teeth, you’ll fill the trays with teeth whitening gels and wear them for approximately half an hour every day for several weeks. As patients, you will have more control over your whitening results, and can even use these trays to maintain your new colouration and touch up your smile.
