Teeth whitening is a procedure that keeps gaining in popularity. If you are after a whiter and brighter smile, then teeth whitening is the treatment for you. Teeth whitening is a simple, safe and quick way to refresh your smile. At Drouin Dental, we deliver fantastic results through our specialised whitening techniques.
Here at Drouin Dental, we see many patients who want a whiter smile. Our specialists will thoroughly assess your dental health, identify causes of discolouration and establish if teeth whitening can be an effective treatment for you. We provide two different options for teeth whitening – in-office whitening or at-home whitening.
At-home Whitening Treatments
Drouin Dental’s At-home Whitening Treatment kits are available in both day and night options, so that you can comfortably whiten your teeth at your own convenience. A low concentration whitening gel is applied to close-fitting trays for one hour every day over the course of 7-14 days. We provide enough whitening gel for your initial treatment period and a number of maintenance applications, making at-home whitening treatments a safe and affordable option for our patients.
Teeth can lose their bright, white tone for a number of reasons including improper oral hygiene, aging and diet. Some people are even prone to yellowish teeth from an early age through no fault of their own. Diet is recognised as the biggest contributor to stained and yellow teeth. Smoking, coffee, tea and red wine are all known to stain teeth and the more you partake, the worse the effect on your teeth. The use of some medications may also cause teeth to appear yellow.
It’s important to note that the results will not be the same for everyone. Some people might find they are able to achieve a whiteness that’s several shades brighter than their existing tooth colour, while others may only achieve one to two shades whiter. Before any whitening process, we recommend that patients have their teeth cleaned by a hygienist to remove any plaque build-up for best results.
Teeth whitening is generally safe when used in the correct way. One of the biggest risks associated with teeth whitening arises when it is applied incorrectly by someone who is not properly qualified. Our extensive practice incorporates the latest technology and our team keeps up to date with advances across in-home and in-chair whitening methods. At Drouin Dental, a team of highly qualified dentists supported by our helpful hygienist will take care of your dental needs.
