Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
There are two types of tooth stains:
- Extrinsic, on the surface
- Intrinsic, underneath the enamel
How to whiten your teeth will depend greatly on which of these stains is being addressed. During your cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Calgary office, Dr. Jennifer Silver will carefully evaluate your teeth to determine which type of staining is present and direct you towards the service that will be most beneficial for your needs.
Dr. Silver offers different tooth whitening services, enabling him to meet the varied needs of our cosmetic dentistry patients.
Solutions available in-office include:
- One hour whitening with Zoom!, a topical bleaching solution ideal for extrinsic stains
- Porcelain veneers, a more advanced cosmetic solution for deep and intrinsic stains
- Dental bonding, a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers
Of these procedures, Zoom! chairside whitening and dental bonding will offer the most immediate solutions, but porcelain veneers will offer the longest lasting. Veneers may also be preferable for patients with additional cosmetic dental concerns such as gaps, chipped teeth, irregular tooth presentation, or uneven tooth sizes. All of this can be explored in greater detail during your tooth whitening consultation.
