Teeth Whitening - Bathurst Manor Dentist

Today, virtually anyone can have a movie star-white smile, and North York cosmetic dentist Dr. Dan Haas has the proven techniques to make your dream smile a reality.

Why Should You Choose Professional Whitening?

Visit any drugstore, grocery store or retail store, and you will see the toothpaste shelves lined with whitening products. Whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, strips and over-the-counter systems have become very popular, but they may not produce the results you desire.

  • There is no dentist available to ensure that you are good candidate for whitening
  • There is no dental professional to monitor the results and tweak the dosages if necessary
  • Individuals may over-use the products and cause damage to their teeth
  • Over-the-counter systems are not custom fit to your smile, so the whitening achieved may not be uniform

Types of Professional Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening is the fastest way to a whiter, brighter smile. In just one office visit to your North York dental clinic, you can see dramatic results. At Haas Dental Centre we offer Zoom! Whitening. Using the ZOOM! Whitening system, the dentist applies the whitening agent to the teeth and then uses a special light to accelerate the whitening process. The actual process takes just over one hour to complete. Because of the speed and ease of this process, it is very popular, especially for clients who have a special event looming in the near future. While in-office whitening is more expensive than other whitening option, the benefits can outweigh the cost factor for some people.

Professional at-home whitening systems also produce excellent results. In this process, the dentist makes a mold of your teeth and creates a custom-made tray that will fit all of the nooks and crannies of your smile. You will place the whitening agent into the tray and place it on the teeth for a pre-determined amount of time. Typically, the trays are worn during the nighttime hours until the optimal whitening level is achieved.


Problems Associated with Teeth Whitening

Some clients experience tooth and gum sensitivity or irritation during or directly after teeth whitening. This problem can often be reduced or eliminated by using a whitening agent that has a lower percentage of the teeth whitening gel.

Not everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening. Teeth that have a yellow hue are typically easier to whiten than those with a gray hue. Similarly, teeth that have previously received dental bonding or porcelain veneers will not whiten, so they may look different from the other teeth after the whitening process. A general cosmetic dentist can evaluate the state of your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
