Teeth Whitening

Do you dislike the colour of your teeth? Although teeth are not by nature perfectly white, many of Downtown Dental Centres patients from St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Thorold and surrounding areas feel that they could improve their smile if only their teeth were whiter and brighter. Discoloured teeth, whether they be stained or yellow, can be vastly improved with the help of a simple teeth whitening procedure. Like all of our cosmetic dentistry services, teeth whitening will help to improve the overall appearance of your teeth and mouth, giving you the confidence to smile at every opportunity! Just like hair and skin colour, people also have different natural tooth colour. Your natural tooth colour can be affected by plaque and tartar buildup, or by not practicing good oral hygiene. Natural tooth colour can also be affected by many other factors:

Intrinsic factors; discolourations that develop deep inside the tooth enamel and are caused by:

  • Childhood exposure to fluoride or antibiotics
  • A mothers antibiotic use while pregnant
  • Thin tooth enamel (due to inherited diseases, dry mouth or aging)
  • Tooth trauma/damage

Extrinsic factors; discolourations that develop on the surface of the teeth as a result of consuming food and beverages or other products that stain, such as:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tobacco (smoked or chewed)
  • Pasta sauce
  • Curry
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Berries
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Candies
  • Oranges
  • Cherries
  • Sports drinks
  • Antibiotic use
  • Excessive fluoride intake

Sometimes yellow or stained teeth are a result of genetics that run in the family. Whatever your reasons for having a tooth/teeth colour that you’re dissatisfied with, Downtown Dental Centre in St. Catharines, Ontario offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures to give you a more radiant smile! Our teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most economical ways to improve your tooth/teeth colour, but before you begin it’s important to determine what you want to achieve with teeth whitening. Consulting with our friendly dentist will help you put a plan of action together in order for you to acquire the bright white smile you deserve! We offer two types of teeth whitening services for you to choose from:

Take-home teeth whitening

Our take-home teeth whitening method involves a mouthpiece custom fit to your teeth that contains a whitening gel. This process can take a week or more to show any results.

In-office teeth whitening

Our in-office teeth whitening method is a quick and easy light-activated process performed with a concentrated whitening gel. It may take several appointments (lasting for up to one hour each) for you to acquire the results you want.

Both of our teeth whitening services involve bleaching that will lighten and brighten your natural tooth colour from as many as five to seven shades, removing both deep (intrinsic) and surface (extrinsic) discolourations, and resulting in dramatically whiter teeth! Teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures that Downtown Dental Centre offers clients in St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Thorold and surrounding areas, because it greatly improves how their teeth look. Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution to discoloured teeth; stains will eventually reappear, so you will need to repeat our in-office or take-home teeth whitening procedures periodically if you wish to maintain your whiter teeth. It’s also very important to practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily, and limiting the amounts of teeth-staining foods, beverages and products that you use. Visiting our dentist for a bi-annual dental hygiene/cleaning appointment or general checkup will also aid you in maintaining your bright, beautiful smile.

St. Catharines Downtown Dental Centres cosmetic dentistry services, including in-office or take-home teeth whitening, will:

  • Reverse years of everyday staining and yellowing
  • Give you a younger appearance
  • Make a positive first impression on others
  • Boost your confidence and self-esteem that comes from a great smile

Consult with our friendly dentist to determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for one of our two teeth whitening methods. Teeth whitening is an easy and simple process to make your teeth whiter and brighter, so there’s no longer any reason to hide your beautiful smile! Downtown Dental Centre in St. Catharines wants you to be happy with your teeth, so we will ensure that your visits with us are pleasant and pleasing, and that you will leave our offices with the results you want.
