Maybe your teeth have been stained from years of drinking coffee or red wine. Or maybe your teeth have yellowed from the natural aging process. No matter what your reasons may be for wanting a beautiful white smile, you can find great care with the professional teeth whitening service offered at Sabharwal Dental Group in Toronto, ON.
Sabharwal Dental Group features two options for teeth whitening: in-office whitening or custom at-home trays. A thorough consultation with Dr. Vageesh Sabharwal can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening and which option is best for you and your needs.
In-office whitening is the fastest way to whiten teeth. During your appointment, the dentist applies the whitening product directly to your teeth while using a shield to protect your gums from the effects of the bleaching gel. A special laser light activates the product safely, and results can be seen quickly – in just 30-60 minutes.
At-home trays are a popular treatment because of the convenience and cost. Dr. Sabharwal takes a model of your teeth and creates custom-made trays that you use with whitening gel in the comfort of your own home. The whitening gel has a lower-strength bleaching agent than in-office whitening, which means you will see results gradually develop with each day’s use of the trays.
With either treatment, patients could experience a temporary sensitivity in their teeth and a mild irritation of their gums. Dr. Sabharwal will help you reduce the chance of experiencing these issues by offering suggestions for how long you should wear the trays, which toothpastes are best for sensitive teeth, and other measures you can take to reduce your chances of experiencing any sensitivity or irritation.
Teeth whitening results aren’t permanent, but should last a year or longer before another treatment or touch-up is necessary. Dr. Sabharwal will guide you on the foods and beverages you should avoid to maintain results for as long as possible.
