Are You Interested in Teeth Whitening?
At Burgess Dental Clinic, as a Downtown Calgary Dentist, we know that many people have discolored teeth and these people know how self-conscious they feel when they are in company. Many suffer in silence and just put up with the fact that their teeth are not perfect though they never look into the vast array of options available for effective treatment. Personal health has always been of paramount importance for many people who may have to interact with friends, work colleagues, customers and associates in different capacities every day of their lives. For these people it is essential to look good and take care of their appearance.
Teeth discoloration is very common and the reasons for the problem can go as far back as childhood in some cases. The most common causes are through smoking or chewing tobacco though this is now thankfully on the decline as more and more people kick the smoking habit. Drinking excessive tea, coffee or cola drinks is another common cause of teeth discoloration and it is the tannin inside the ingredients that does the damage. Taking antibiotics as a child, trauma, poor dental hygiene and general aging are some of the other main sources of the problem.
For your convenience and budget, we have two methods of whitening available to you. The first is an in-office procedure. The second is the use of a Take Home Kit that you can conveniently use at home..
