Restore the shine to your smile with teeth whitening services in Calgary, AB
If you hate to show off your teeth in pictures, or you’re tired of looking at discoloration in the mirror, Dr. Palka can help. Lake Chaparral Dental Care offers teeth whitening services to patients in Calgary AB, to remove staining safely, without damaging your teeth or gums.
Managing teeth staining
Common causes of teeth stains are habits such as coffee, tea, tobacco products, and wine. Discoloration can also be caused by tartar build-up on your teeth and along the gum line. Routine dental cleanings can remove tartar and plaque and brighten your teeth to a certain degree, but if you drink a lot of coffee or smoke every day, it’s not always enough to keep your teeth white.
Dr. Palka recommends whitening your teeth at home with custom-fitted trays and a medical strength bleaching agent. When you visit our office for a hygiene appointment, she can take impressions of your mouth to create your applicator tray and give you the whitening gel to take home with it. Treatment is as simple as brushing and flossing your teeth, applying the gel to the trays, and wearing them in your mouth. You can either wear the trays during the day for an hour or keep them in your mouth while you sleep at night. Use the trays daily until you get the desired results, and show off your smile with confidence.
Stain Prevention Tips
The best way to prevent stains is to quit all tobacco products and learn how to mindfully enjoy your morning coffee or tea. The acid in your brew can weaken your teeth, so the ideal way to prevent stains is to rinse your mouth with water after you finish your drink and wait thirty minutes to brush your teeth. Limiting your intake will make this much easier to maintain in the long run.
Request an Appointment
You should also visit the dentist at least twice a year for deep cleaning to keep your teeth bright and healthy. Some stains won’t respond to whitening treatments, and Dr. Palka can evaluate your teeth during your exam to determine the best option. She may recommend porcelain veneers or dental crowns for intrinsic staining.
