Fall is in full swing and Halloween is almost here which means the holiday season is officially off and running now! So is your smile ready for the holidays? While you already know that a healthy smile depends on taking good care of your teeth and gums every day and periodic professional dental cleanings, Dr. Nathalie Dowsett is pleased to offer whitening treatments that dissolve built-up stains and discoloration on your pearly whites.
At Dowsett Dental Health in Calgary, Alberta, we offer take-home whitening techniques that are custom made for you and your smile. If you consult with our dentist, he will decide how much whitening you need and will also create a customized bleaching kit for you. If you are committed to using this system as instructed, your teeth can be lightened by one or more shades. These whitening results should last at least 1-2 months, you still may require teeth whitening touch-ups in the future to keep your smile bright.
You may wonder why your teeth lose their brightness even when you take excellent care of them on a daily basis, and get professional teeth cleanings. Aging is just one factor that affects tooth whiteness over time, but the foods you habitually eat (or drink) can affect your teeth as well. If you regularly enjoy tea and coffee, tomato sauce and berries, these can stain healthy teeth over time. If you smoke or chew tobacco, or take over-the-counter or prescription drugs like antihistamines, antipsychotics or high blood pressure medications, any of these can affect your tooth enamel’s whiteness.
If your smile needs a boost for the holidays, we invite you to give us a call at 403.229.0510 today to schedule a teeth whitening consultation. Dr. Nathalie Dowsett and our Dowsett Dental Health team in Calgary, Alberta, will discuss the options available to you and help you get your smile ready for the upcoming holidays!
