Teeth Whitening Montreal
If you are looking for teeth whitening montreal services, you have come to the right place. There are several ways to whiten teeth. The majority of techniques use products which contain oxygenated water which removes the yellowish pigments embedded in the enamel.
Among the substances that may stain your teeth, the main ones are dental plaque, calculus, coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine and use of tobacco products.
The dark discoloration of teeth can also be intrinsic. Causes are multiple like aging, diseases during childhood and medication such as tetracycline.
Here are the methods you can use to whiten your teeth:
DIY Teeth Whitening
Off the shelf products: Some look for homemade teeth whitening techniques and products available in Montreal. Although they whiten your teeth to a certain degree, these products do not offer the optimal result. That is because the active ingredient present is at low concentration. Additionally, the trays are not adjusted precisely to your mouth because they are one-size-fits-all.
How To Get White Teeth Using Bleaching Trays
Customized bleaching trays: Trays are customized to fit your teeth. These are part of our special teeth whitening montreal services. This assures a uniform distribution of the whitening gel and provides a proper protection of the soft tissues in your mouth like the tongue, gums and mucous membranes. This technique requires you to wear the trays for a specific amount of time every day for 1-2 weeks.
How To Whiten Teeth Fast
A photosensitive gel, enabled by light, is applied to your teeth by the dentist. The bleaching power is activated by a dental lamp. The session may last up to one hour. For optimal final results, bleaching trays are recommended for a few days after the session.
The final result following teeth whitening depends on the type of staining and the intensity of the coloring. Your motivation and compliance with instructions before and after the operation will also affect this result.
Here's a brief summary of the steps: We treat your caries or periodontal disease and discusses the desired results with you. Then, we do a scaling and register the initial color of your teeth. A mold of your teeth is taken for the fabrication of your customized bleaching trays. After the whitening process, the final color is noted.
Teeth Whitening Montreal - Post-operative Effects
It is common ( 2 out of 3 patients) to experience dental sensitivity during or immediately after the teeth whitening operation. This reaction is due to the temporary ''cleansing'' of the pores of your teeth. This sensitivity usually disappears during the first 24 hours with the help of the minerals present in the saliva.
''How long will my teeth remain white?'' It varies from one person to another. Your willingness to avoid certain food or beverages (coffee, red wine, tobacco, etc.) play an important role.
This is a small remark on restorations already present in your mouth. Composite restorations or porcelain crowns/veneers can't be whitened. If they don't match the color of your bleached teeth, they have to be redone with the right shade.
Also, a smoker wishing to whiten their yellow stained teeth should stop smoking beforehand, otherwise the coloration will return.
We do not recommend bleaching your teeth if you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding. Also, people suffering from dental sensitivity, gum disease or big cavities are not good candidates for teeth whitening.
