Get Teeth Whitening in Winnipeg

Norwood Dental Centre can help turn back the clock on your smile! With time, our habits and lifestyle can do a number on our smile’s lustre, causing stains and changing your teeth’s colour. Teeth whitening in Winnipeg can restore the smile of people with stained, dull or discoloured teeth.

How Your Teeth Lose Their Shine

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed and lose its lustre as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine, tobacco and wine. Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.

One type of stain can be caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis and actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don't help. Another type of stain—one that can be more easily attacked by brushing, flossing and rinsing—is caused by external factors such as foods and tobacco.

The Growing Popularity of Teeth Whitening

More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth's enamel and your gums.

Whitening agents actually change the colour of your teeth, but only are effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains. These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discoloured teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-coloured fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).

Choose Professional Teeth Whitening in Winnipeg

Professional whitening performed by the Norwood Dental Centre team is considered to be the most effective and safest method. Done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as 5 years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as they are monitored and directions followed closely.
