Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that can help restore your smile to a pearly white appearance and boost your confidence! It is a very safe and effective procedure under the supervision of our professional cosmetic Scarborough dental team at Bellesmere Dental.
There are several methods of teeth whitening, including professional treatments performed by a dentist, over-the-counter and natural remedies.
The professional teeth whitening formula used by our Scarborough dentists contains hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down into water and oxygen molecules when exposed to the air and water in your mouth. The oxygen molecules will attach to stain particles on your teeth to break them down. This formula provides a higher percentage of hydrogen peroxide than OTC products to give you a brighter smile.
While over-the-counter (OTC) products such as whitening toothpaste, dental strips, or whitening kits may seem like more affordable options, they are most likely weaker and therefore require more treatments to achieve the same results. This can cause your teeth to become more sensitive and uncomfortable.
It's important to note that teeth whitening may not be appropriate for everyone, particularly those with sensitive teeth or existing dental problems. It's always best to consult with our Scarborough dentist before starting any teeth whitening regimen.
