Teeth Whitening - Q & A
What causes yellow teeth?
The enamel of your tooth is naturally white. As teeth get worn down the yellow inner layer - called dentin - begins to show through. Certain foods will also stain teeth, or may also be acidic and eat away at the enamel layer. These include pop, soda, sports drinks, sugar candy, red/white wine, and black tea.
Teeth whitening is not harmful if you follow product directions. City Dental has helped thousands of Torontonians with laser whitening treatments for safe, effective results. Letting a dental professional whiten your teeth is a quick way to get a brighter smile. And it’s safer than using an at-home whitening treatment.
Laser whitening is approved by the Canadian and American Dental Association. The procedure is painless, but your teeth may feel slightly sensitive for a few hours after the procedure. If you are opposed to laser teeth whitening, City Dental also offers non-laser options. Give us a call to find out more.
What is the laser teeth-whitening procedure like?
One laser whitening treatment usually takes about 20 minutes, and whitens teeth by an average of 6-10 shades.
During treatment, you will need to wear a plastic guard to protect your gums and lips. Your dentist first soaks your teeth in a whitening solution. Finally, she will use a patented laser to activate the bleach. The result is a noticeably whiter smile!
Your dentist may recommend several treatments to achieve your desired results. But you should see results with each session. Some stains - like those caused by prescribed medications - are often deeper and harder to lighten.
Laser teeth whitening doesn’t work on crowns or veneers. So you’ll only see results on your natural teeth.
