The phrase “pearly whites” commonly alludes to teeth with a pristine and almost clear appearance, embodying a clean and perfect look. With their lustrous and pristine exterior, pearls are often used as a metaphor for perfection. Determining what constitutes a “perfect” smile is difficult as personal preferences drive smile aesthetics. Our confidence in our smile often hinges on our perceptions and desires for improvement. While no fixed formula exists, “pearly white” teeth are often a component of the ideal smile. Tooth discoloration is common, but it doesn’t have to impact your confidence. At Aesthetic Associates Centre, we provide professional teeth whitening solutions to restore and enhance your smile’s brightness.
Do I Need Professional Teeth Whitening?
Tooth discoloration can be traced to various factors, with internal or external causes. At your visit, our team will assess the nature of your discoloration and tailor a solution that suits you.
Some common causes of discoloration are:
- Dark foods: Regularly eating and drinking dark-colored foods like coffee, tea, red wine, and deeply pigmented foods can cause surface stains on teeth.
- Smoking: Using tobacco products can significantly discolor teeth due to the presence of tar and nicotine.
- Poor oral hygiene: Lack of proper brushing and flossing can cause plaque and tartar buildup on teeth, leading to a yellowish appearance.
- Aging: As we age, the gradual wearing down of tooth enamel reveals the yellower dentin beneath, leading to a more yellowish appearance of the teeth over time.
The decision to undergo teeth whitening is based on personal preference and individual perception. If you’re considering professional teeth whitening, we offer tailored guidance and solutions that align with your preferences, supporting your journey toward a brighter smile according to your choices and comfort.
Introducing iSmile: Your Professional Teeth Whitening Solution
Over-the-counter products may offer convenience but often fail to deliver significant results. At Aesthetic Associates Centre, our professional teeth bleaching treatments employ advanced formulas and techniques, ensuring remarkable improvements in a shorter period. We will assess your needs during your visit and customize your treatment accordingly. Choose from flexible teeth whitening services, including at-home and in-office options, all designed for your convenience with our iSmile products.
Before the treatment, we thoroughly clean teeth to eliminate plaque and debris that may block the whitening agent. To reduce gum contact, we use a cheek retractor and apply a protective agent along the gum line to minimize contact of the bleaching solution with your lips and skin. Our application process ensures an efficient whitening experience, treating both upper and lower teeth simultaneously. The iSmile solution remains on your teeth for 16 minutes, aided by a special light to intensify the whitening process. This is repeated three times to achieve the desired whitening effect.
Our take-home iSmile whitening solution includes an LED light powered by the provided travel power bank. It can even connect to your phone for added convenience. For this treatment, you will apply the solution with the applicator pen and activate the light for 8 minutes three times a day. Our iSmile whitening gel offers a swift and hassle-free transformation, brightening your smile without causing discomfort or sensitivity.
The Benefits of Teeth Whitening
It is common for people to inquire about the safety of professional teeth whitening. When performed under the guidance of a professional, teeth whitening is a safe procedure, and our iSmile gel is FDA-registered. Whether done in our office or with custom trays at home, this safe and painless procedure is notably quicker and more effective than over-the-counter treatments.
Additionally, teeth whitening has a remarkable effect on self-esteem. At our practice, we have witnessed firsthand the impact a brighter smile can have on our patients’ self-perception. As your smile improves, it fosters a greater sense of confidence, allowing you to feel more comfortable and self-assured in your daily life.
