In recent years, teeth whitening treatments have become more and more common. Advanced whitening agents are safer than ever before, and deliver more effective results. From a cosmetic perspective, teeth whitening treatments are popular with everyone, and at every age. As such, demand for exceptional results is ever increasing – many patients have high expectations. The truth is, natural teeth are not supposed to be “super white”, and every mouth is different.
Simply put, no procedure will make the teeth as white as snow. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, the idea is to make teeth as white as possible - indeed, as white as the white of the eyes! For example, a patient with excessively yellow teeth could expect a normal shade of white in terms of an improvement. But even with the very best whitening treatment, results will vary - one patient may experience several shades of improvement, while another patient may experience very little.
Patients will experience discolored teeth for many reasons. It could be age; it could be diet; it could be smoking; it could even be a matter of genetics. But for whatever reason, teeth whitening should be handled by a professional, and under the supervision of a dentist. While whiter teeth are primarily a cosmetic treatment, an experienced dentist could well diagnose other underlying causes for the discoloration. In short, the dentist’s office is the place for comprehensive care.
When it comes to teeth whitening, patients should understand the pros and cons. An informed patient makes better decisions, and collaborates well with the dentist. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Dr. Pedvis will recommend a personalized approach for teeth whitening, and will explain the pros and cons of the treatment process. All things considered, in-office treatment, under the supervision of a professional, is far preferable to over-the-counter products sold at retail stores.
Professional teeth-whitening procedures have proven to be safe, without compromising the tooth enamel. Needless to say, the Mackenzie team will make every effort to deliver the best possible results. And while these results may vary with each patient, the clinic has had excellent outcomes overall. But for the long-term, personal care and maintenance is the key to optimum health: like a proper diet; and good oral hygiene; and visits to the dentist on a regular and ongoing basis.
ZOOM! Teeth Whitening
ZOOM! teeth whitening treatments are in-office procedures, with great whitening results, and in just three 15-minute sessions. ZOOM! uses hydrogen peroxide that is light activated to lift stains, and allow the teeth to appear whiter. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, results can often appear up to 8 shades whiter in less than an hour. The clinic can also provide patients with a convenient “take home” whitening system, with results that are apparent in as little as three days.
