Simple Ways to Brighten Your Smile for Autumn

The days might be getting shorter as the seasons slowly change, but with a little help, you can ensure your smile remains its sunniest best. There are some very straightforward dental treatments that can help to rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth, and one of the easiest is to schedule a dental hygiene appointment here at West Bowmanville Family Dental.

How Can a Dental Hygiene Appointment Help My Smile?
Your regular hygiene appointments are crucial for a healthy smile, and most people need to see a hygienist every six months. However, having your teeth cleaned professionally is also a nice way to freshen your smile. You have probably noticed that after your appointment, your teeth look just that bit brighter and shinier, and have an added sparkle. During your professional dental cleaning in Newcastle, your hygienist will gently clean and polish your teeth, a process that does help to remove some surface stains and it is great for freshening breath. As part of your hygiene appointment, you will also learn if you’re looking after your teeth correctly. If not, we can provide lots of useful advice about improving your brushing and flossing routine.

Try Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment for Greater Impact
Although a hygiene appointment is an excellent place to start and might be all you need, some people may want something with a bit more impact. If this applies to you, a professional teeth whitening treatment could be just the thing! Professional teeth whitening in Clarington is extremely popular and affordable, and we use Philips Zoom whitening because it’s so safe and effective. A quick dental check-up is essential before any whitening treatment, just to make sure whitening your teeth is the correct option.

We offer a choice of two treatments which are an in-office procedure or you can whiten at home with a custom kit. Both are highly effective but use slightly different methods. If you can’t wait to see the results, choose an in-office whitening treatment. In just an hour your teeth will be brighter and whiter. Otherwise, opt for a customized home whitening kit which includes whitening trays made to fit precisely over your teeth and a professional strength whitening gel that is safe for home use. It’s a treatment that will take a couple of weeks to complete, but you can reuse the trays for top-ups, provided your teeth don’t change shape or position.

Covering up Chipped or Worn Teeth with Porcelain Veneers
Teeth whitening can make a great deal of difference to the appearance of teeth, but it will not change their overall shape or size. If you have one or two teeth that are perhaps cracked or chipped, porcelain veneers can soon restore their appearance. Porcelain veneers are made to fit precisely over the front surface of the tooth, and are relatively hard-wearing and long-lasting and are easily combined with a teeth whitening treatment in Courtice. People who only need one or two veneers but who have teeth that are discoloured or just a bit dingy can first whiten their teeth before having their veneers made and fitted. The reason for completing treatment in this order is because your teeth are unique and will whiten slightly differently to everyone else. Once they are whitened, your new veneers can be accurately matched to the shade of your teeth.
