Hamilton, ON area patients who are interested in enhancing their smiles with teeth whitening solutions are welcome to speak with Dr. Karen Ho and the team at Dentistry on Parkdale about the advantages of professional whitening treatment. Visiting a dentist who offers effective methods of whitening the teeth is the first step in a brighter, more beautiful smile!
Brightening the teeth is one way to achieve a more brilliant, beautiful smile. However, many patients who have used over-the-counter whitening products, including strips, trays, and pens may have found that the results are not what they desire. Instead, we encourage patients to book an appointment with Dr. Karen Ho and her team to learn about the methods available in her practice. She offers two ways to brighten the smile:
A brighter smile is often just an appointment away when you work with our dental professionals.
One way for patients to achieve a more attractive smile is with our take-home whitening kits. These kits include precision, custom-made trays that are worn over the smile with the use of professional-strength bleaching gel. The whitening kits allow patients to add brilliance and beauty to the smile without having to stay in the dental office. Results from these trays are more gradual than the in-office solutions and provide patients more control over their whitening results. Some patients also consider the use of take-home whitening kits in conjunction with in-office treatment to continually keep the smile looking beautiful.
Another option for our patients to consider is in-office power bleaching. This method of whitening is fast, effective, and provides same-day results that are relatively affordable for patients who want immediate improvement. The in-office power bleaching procedure is done right in our practice and is administered by our professional staff. In-office power bleaching is a way for our patients to get the results they want while they wait, typically within an hour or two. It also includes a thorough cleaning of the teeth before and after treatment, and many patients often choose to use the take-home kit to maintain their new smile.
The decision to whiten the smile is a personal one, and we offer the information patients need to make an educated choice regarding which is best for their specific needs. Patients who want gradual results and a more affordable treatment may consider the take-home whitening kits, while patients who want immediate improvement and have more to spend may want to think about the in-office power bleaching option. We encourage patients to take time to learn about what we have to offer before they decide. Regardless, their results are going to be long-lasting and noticeable.
Most patients who want to brighten the smile are candidates for teeth whitening. However, we do explain to patients with restorations what can happen with our whitening process. Restorations including crowns, bridges, and veneers do not change colors with the whitening treatment. This means that if the teeth are currently matched with these restorations, they will no longer match after treatment. Patients who are serious about maintaining their whitening results long-term will want to ask about having their restorations replaced to match their new smile. This will add to the cost of treatment but will ensure patients have access to a more beautiful appearance!
