Why Should I do Teeth Whitening at the Dentist?

Today, teeth whitening treatments are common. For both men and women, whitening agents are safe and effective, and deliver excellent results. At the same time, patients have high demands and high expectations. But the fact is, natural teeth aren’t supposed to be “super white”.

No teeth whitening procedure, whether in a home kit or at the dentist, will make teeth white like snow. And while every drug store offers a myriad of whitening kits, the Mackenzie Dental Centre recommends a professional approach – it’s the best way to ensure results under supervision.

Realistically, every patient will derive different results. Patients with yellowish teeth could derive several shades of white better. Patients who smoke will have different results. However, even with the most advanced whitening treatment, results are going to vary from patient to patient.

Patients have discoloured teeth for many reasons. That’s why professional teeth whitening would be a preferred option to the DIY option. Discoloured teeth could be a matter of age; or a matter of diet; or even a matter of family genetics. Whatever the reason, proper diagnosis is essential. 

Bottom line, whiter teeth are typically a cosmetic procedure for most. But doing the procedure under the supervision of an experienced dentist has benefits. A dentist can diagnose underlying causes for discoloration – it means that treatment is more comprehensive than just whitening.

With teeth whitening procedures, patients should be acquainted with the pros and cons. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, the dental care team explains the treatment protocol, and reinforces realistic expectations for each patient, without promising outcomes that are unattainable.

While it’s true that over-the-counter teeth whitening might be a cost saving, it’s always better to do it right the first time – and that means having an experienced dentist handle the procedure.

Our Family has gone to Dr. Pedvis for over 25 years in his previous location. You are all so lucky to have him and his team to look after you in Vaughan now. I am a very complicated dental patient due to healthcare issues… I knew I was always safe with Dr. Pedvis!  I will miss your great stories, and trying not to laugh, as you work on my dental issues. Most people do not get to laugh at "The Dentist". Your new office looks awesome! 

Dorothy McMahon

I have been a patient of Dr. Pedvis for 13 yrs now. He is the greatest dentist I've ever had. He's extremely gentle, listens to your concerns and is compassionate. I once emailed the office with a severe toothache when it was closed. Shortly after Dr. Pedvis contacted me with my concerns, he called in a prescription for me to get me out of pain. He then took me first thing in the morning and did a root canal. I highly recommend this dental office to anybody looking for a caring dentist. Also the staff is fantastic and they truly care about you as a person.

Kimberly Oppermann

I have seen many dentists prior to Dr. Pedvis, so I believe I have ample reference points to say that Dr. Pedvis is at the top of his field. He keeps up to date with developments in the field, invests in the latest equipment for his office and is able to handle a wide variety of procedures, from simple to complex. He also maintains an equally top level network of professionals to add to his service capabilities if needed.

I am pleased to share my experience I had at the office of Dr. Lloyd Pedvis. From the moment I stepped into the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable, by the friendly competent staff. I found the office environment very pleasant. Dr. Pedvis is an excellent dentist. He takes the time to explain every procedure, and is attentive that I was comfortable at all times.

Melissa Lombardo

Me and my family have been going to Dr. Pedvis 's dental practice since 1995. He always performs excellent services, and is often available to handle emergencies. First class staff, as well. Their new location in Vaughan is stunning! Highly recommended.

Cameron A. M. Muir

Dr. Pedvis was so amazing! I can't say enough good things about him. Not only did he get me in quickly for a root canal (replying on a Sunday to my plea for help!). He was so great about addressing my pain and understanding my irrational fear. His follow up after the root canal was absolutely amazing! I was shocked at his follow through and care for his patients even after the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone in need of dental work.
