Tooth Whitening (Dental Bleaching) - Smile Solutions Dental Centre

Tooth Whitening

All dental whitening methods (over-the-counter or professional) involve the application of a whitening agent to the teeth. Professional home whitening has become a safe, quick, and predictable way to achieve a brighter smile. The custom fit trays made by your dentist will ensure that the whitening material stays on the tooth where it is most effective.

The Procedure Your first appointment is approximately 20 minutes, and consists of measurements (ie. Impressions) that allow the laboratory to fabricate soft, ultra-slim trays that are custom fit to your teeth.
Your second appointment is approximately 10 minutes. You will be given your custom fit trays, and tips on how to use your home whitening kit.

2 weeks of whitening using a professional dental product is usually sufficient to make a good improvement in your smile. However, you may continue to lighten your teeth beyond this. Talk to your dentist about how you can work together to get the best results.

Root Canal Therapy - Smile Solutions Dental Centre

Endodontics is the term use to describe the treatment of the internal portion of an abscessed tooth, dead tooth or a tooth damaged and exposing the nerves. If a damaged tooth requiring a root canal treatment is left untreated, the eventual treatment will be the extraction of the tooth. If such a fracture exposes the nerves of the tooth, the only option is usually a root canal treatment.

Crowns and Bridges - Smile Solutions Dental Centre

Bridges are appropriately termed because they literally bridge the gap between the teeth by anchoring an artificial tooth between two dental crowns that are placed on either side of the gap. If a tooth has been severely damaged as a result of teeth grinding, decay, age, or improper bite, a crown is often the most predictable and long lasting solution.

Once the composite filling is placed, the material is chemically hardened, or cured, with a special light, and polished.There are many reasons why most dental patients choose white fillings over metal fillings. Although they are often used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, they may also be used on a back tooth when the restoration is small or may be visible.
