Safe and effective teeth whitening in Milton, ON
A program of home teeth whitening begins with a comprehensive oral examination to be sure your mouth is healthy enough for treatment. If gum disease, decay, trauma, or other problems are present, they are addressed before whitening. Then, molds are made of your mouth. They go to a dental laboratory where treatment trays are fabricated from smooth plastic. The dentist provides prescription strength whitening gel and instructions.
Because the custom-made trays have a snug, comfortable fit, they hold the bleaching agent on teeth, rather than allowing it to leak onto soft tissues where it could cause irritation. The peroxide gel penetrates microscopic tubules in tooth enamel, loosening staining pigments, and lifting them away without harm to tooth structures.

The dentist provides a personalized treatment schedule, based on the sensitivity of your teeth and your whitening goals. You simply put gel into the trays and typically wear them for about an hour a day. (Some patients prefer to whiten while they sleep, which is also safe.) When your smile reaches the level of brilliance you desire, stop daily whitening but maintain good home hygiene. Since the kit is at your fingertips, you can touch-up whitening periodically to keep your smile bright.
