Professional teeth whitening is a customary procedure favored by patients seeking cosmetic dentistry in Burnaby. Teeth whitening from a dentist can quickly transform dull teeth into a bright, gleaming smile.
The whitening solutions used by Dr. Steven Tsoung are more effective than drugstore brands because they have a significantly higher concentration of carbamide peroxide, the main ingredient used in teeth whitening products.
Why patients choose cosmetic dentistry in Burnaby for whiter teeth:
- To brighten dull or worn tooth enamel
- To erase stains caused by antibiotics, food, beverages and tobacco
- To reverse the effects of fluorosis (heavy fluoridation during tooth development)
Options for Teeth Whitening Cosmetic Dentistry in Burnaby
With cosmetic dentistry in Burnaby, teeth whitening can be achieved in different ways. After discussing your needs and examining your teeth, Dr. Tsoung will suggest one of the following treatment options.
Teeth Whitening at the Office
Whitening teeth takes about an hour to complete at the office. Dr. Tsoung or someone from his staff will carefully place the whitening chemical on your teeth and apply laser light to safely activate the process. Unlike over-the-counter whitening, which tends to drip into the gum line and burn, your gums will be fully protected with a rubber barrier specially designed for office teeth whitening procedures.
Teeth Whitening at Home
Some patients prefer an at-home whitening treatment that they can administer themselves using dentist-prescribed whitening solution and customized trays that fit snugly over the teeth. Tooth impressions are captured and the customized whitening trays are created. Dr. Tsoung will tell you how long to keep the trays over your teeth to get the result you want. The trays you get from Dr. Tsoung are better than the drugstore variety, because they are customized to wrap around your smile and nobody else’s. The other trays are not, and they are more likely to cause irritation, streaking, and disappointing results.
Patients with resin fillings, crowns, and other dental work will need to have those restorations matched to the rest of the teeth once the treatment is completed, because the whitening process will not work on dental work.
