For most of us, Labour Day marks the official end of summer. While we may be sad to see summer go, it’s time to welcome in a new season with a big smile on our faces. But is your smile as white as you want it to be?
After a long, lazy Labour Day weekend spent with friends, family and fun, you may find your smile slightly dulled, not only by the end of summer, but by a summer well spent of snacking, sun-grazing, and possibly even skipping the dentist!
If you are guilty of not staying on top of your dental-care routine this summer, not to worry; Desired Smiles has all the tools to get your smile back to its shining best.
While you may be familiar with a whole range of whitening products available, they may not give you the result you desire. If you are looking for a dramatically whiter smile, there are two options available for whitening that may suit your needs.
The first option is the in-office Zoom! whitening treatment. This treatment is fairly quick, as you will only be in the chair for about one hour. To begin the treatment, we protect your lips and gums, and then apply whitening gel to your teeth. To activate the whitening gel, we shine a special light into your mouth. The light and gel then work together to break up stains, and discolourations. All you have to do is sit back! Once your treatment is complete, we will send you home with a kit for at-home touch ups, which will help you keep your newly brightened smile even longer. The average results of this treatment are a staggering eight shades of improvement!
If our Zoom! whitening treatment isn’t suited for you, we also have a take-home whitening alternative to whiten your teeth at your own pace. For this treatment, we create a custom tray that fits your teeth, and provide you with the gel to use in the trays. The process takes approximately two to three weeks from start to finish, and you will be able to enjoy great results on your own time!
Regular Checkups and Cleanings
Whether or not you choose to whiten your teeth, regular checkups and cleanings are essential in maintaining your clean, white smile, as well as for teeth and gum health. To make sure your dental appointments are as painless as possible (no pun intended), we offer flexible appointment times, a convenient location, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff to get you through your appointment in no time at all.
During your appointment, we also ensure you are equipped with all the proper tools and knowledge to properly care for your teeth in between visits. Beyond proper brushing and flossing techniques, we will put together a preventative oral health program for you, and walk you through all the steps you need to keep your mouth in good health. We will even talk to you about foods you should be avoiding to maintain your healthy smile for life. The key to good oral health is not only having all the information, but putting all you know to good use.
Get Your Desired Smile
Wanting your teeth to look their whitest and brightest is a common feeling, and we are happy to help you achieve this. We truly believe that maintaining a healthy smile for life comes from learning how to best take care of your own oral health in between dental visits.
We also believe that this knowledge and care can be learned and started from a very young age, which is why our play-based children’s dentistry appointments are so successful. Through our three different types of appointments, we prepare children for what to expect during their dental visits, as well as teach them how to take care of their teeth and gums on their own. You’re never too young to take care of your teeth!
From our regular dental visits, to cosmetic services, including whitening and veneers, we are truly your one stop shop for all your oral health needs.
If you would like to learn more about either of our two whitening options, or to book an appointment to get your dental care back on track, please contact us, and come experience the difference for yourself.
