Have you ever wanted that “Hollywood” smile? Most individuals don’t realize that a lot of hollywood actors and public personalities have gone through extensive dental work. This can range anywhere from teeth straightening, with Invisalign or traditional orthodontics, crowns, bridges, veneers, gum surgery and more. In a perfect world everyone would have time and money to access all these procedures to create their own perfect smile. If any of these procedures are of interest to you, we are happy to consult with you regarding your dental wishes. If more extensive work is something that you would like to undergo but it is not on your radar at the moment a whitening product can help to increase the aesthetics of your teeth at a lower cost.
Teeth can vary in shades of colour depending on skin colouring. Some people’s teeth are more greyish or bluish, others are more pinkish or yellowish. This colouring is natural. However, when we consume foods with colour then our teeth can become discolored. Foods and drinks such as, blueberries, tomato sauce, beets, tea, coffee, red wine, soy sauce and more can all stain the teeth. Our teeth also tend to go more yellow with age. This is where a take home whitening kit can do wonders for you. The whitening products we use act by going into tooth and bleaching it from the inside out. This is a safe way to get that long lasting white smile.
To have your colour shade assessed and see how many shades whiter you could reach with whitening, please ask us. We would be happy to set up a consult with Kerry for all whitening inquires. Don’t forget our whitening special is still on until December 15th. It also makes for a great Christmas or Hanukkah present!
