What You Need To Know About Teeth Whitening With Fillings and Crowns If you’re considering teeth whitening or other cosmetic dentistry in Calgary, you’re not alone! Teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry have exploded in popularity in Calgary over the last few years. Teeth whitening in Calgary enhances the brightness of natural teeth. The lifespan of whitened teeth can range from 4-24 months, depending on the treatment used and your consumption of food and drink that can easily stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea and smoking. Let’s Take a Look at Teeth Whitening in Calgary and Some Factors to Consider Types of Whiteners If you Calgary dentist agrees that you are a candidate for tooth whitening, you can choose either an over-the-counter tooth whitening kit or a Dentist-supervised treatment plan. Over – The – Counter Treatment Store bought kits require 7-30 days of consistent use for full effect. Individual results may vary. Dentist-Supervised Your Calgary dentist can provide you with a tooth whitening kit that can provide better and faster results than an over the counter store bought kit. • An in-office treatment typically whitens teeth 5-10 shades whiter. • A Dentist-dispensed take home kit contains a higher concentration of whitening agent than a store bought kit and is easy to use. You are likely to be more satisfied with the results of a Dentist-dispensed kit than a store bought kit. In-Office Treatment After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure, your Calgary Dentist will tell you whether tooth whitening is a safe option for your smile. If it is, then your Dentist will: • Apply a professional strength whitening gel to your teeth for about 15-20 minutes while you relax. • Re-apply the whitening gel treatment one or more times to achieve your desired esthetics.
