Whitening
 
Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours.
 
Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, cleaning between their teeth once a day and the regular cleanings at your dentist’s office.
 
If you decide you would like to go beyond this to make your smile look brighter, you should investigate all of your options with your dentist.
 
You can take several approaches to whiten your smile:
  • In-clinic bleaching – such as Zoom or Polar Office
  • At-home bleaching
  • Whitening toothpastes are generally not as effective.                                                                                                                                                                                          
Sensitivity must be dealt with prior to treatment otherwise the bleaching may increase the problem, thus it is not unusual for the dentist to recommend avoiding this treatment. Your teeth must be in a healthy state prior to any form of bleaching and so it is imperative that you see your dentist.
