It has been demonstrated that a bright smile influences perceptions and can affect social relationships. It’s no wonder that some statistics show that over 80% of people would like to have whiter teeth. Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic services in the world because it helps us to look good and feel great.
Professional teeth whitening is the simplest and most comfortable way to regain the shine of your teeth in a single visit to the dentist’s office. At our Victoria dental clinic, we use the latest technology and top-quality materials to bring out the beauty of a dazzling smile.
What are the causes that lead to a change in tooth colour?
Few people have a completely white smile naturally. With age, teeth are subject to external factors that lead to yellowing or staining:
- foods and beverages, such as berries, wine and coffee
- habits such as smoking
- plaque and tartar build up
- long term treatments with antibiotics
- dental trauma – cracks in the enamel that favour the formation of stains on the surface of the tooth.
Stains can be removed with a professional dental whitening session in the dentist’s office. One session takes about 2 hours, depending on the treatment chosen. The effects can last up to 2 years, depending on the maintenance habits of the patient. Teeth whitening can be repeated without affecting the health of the teeth in 2 or 3 years. Before the procedure, the teeth must be clean and healthy, so we recommend a professional polishing and scaling.
The winter season is the perfect time to treat yourself to a professional teeth whitening treatment in Victoria, BC. Your teeth will shine and you will smile confidently over the holidays.
