Teeth Whitening in Markham, ON

Teeth Whitening in Markham, ON

Even though there are several affordable options available over the counter to whiten your teeth, including toothpastes, strips, and gels, a professional whitening treatment provides optimum results in the shortest amount of time. At New Delhi Dental, we offer this treatment to brighten your smile in Markham.

What to expect in a whitening treatment

The whitening procedure is not particularly complicated, but you can expect the best results when it is performed by a professional, such as your dentist at New Delhi Dental. In our office, we have the equipment and expertise needed to ensure that your gums are not harmed or irritated by the process and that you do not experience tooth sensitivity following the treatment.

A standard procedure will take between 60 and 90 minutes at your dentist office. Your dentist will start by making a record of the current shade of your teeth. The teeth will then be polished with pumice to remove any traces of plaque on the surface. Gauze will be placed to keep the teeth dry. Retractors may be used to ensure that your cheeks, lips, and tongue are kept away from the whitening product. A barrier will also be placed around the gums to keep them protected during the procedure. The whitening solution will be applied to only the front surface of the teeth. The active ingredient in this solution is either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which is activated with a curing light. The solution will then be left on the teeth for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the brand. It may be reapplied, if needed. Once the desired shade has been achieved, the teeth will be rinsed and a fluoride treatment may be applied to help with tooth sensitivity.

Maintaining your results

Following your treatment, you will be advised to avoid foods and drinks that have a high level of pigment, such as coffee, tea, grapes, tomato sauce, wine, and beets, for at least 24 hours. Smoking and tobacco of any sort should also be avoided. After this period, you can continue eating and drinking as usual, but to prolong your results, it would be a good idea to limit your consumption of any particularly staining items.
