Four Ways Teeth Whitening Makes Life Better

People take their teeth for granted until they notice something is not quite right. Take the hue of your teeth for example. Do you realize how many ways yellowed teeth adversely affect your life? Here is what you can expect after seeing a dentist and undergoing a few whitening treatments.

Making a Better First Impression

Meeting someone for the first time should be an activity that everyone enjoys. Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but the demeanor of that new person can change once they get a good look at your teeth. Even if they are straight and there are no signs of decay, the other person is likely to wonder what bad habit led to your teeth being such a dingy shade.

Instead of your teeth being something that creates a negative impression, a set of naturally white teeth does not create a distraction that takes away from all of your positive qualities. Whether the first encounter is with new coworker, a neighbor, or a potential romantic interest, everyone comes away with a better perception.

Helping You Feel Better About Your Appearance

You put a lot of time and effort into your appearance. That includes making sure you are properly groomed, your clothing fits, and everything is cleaned and pressed. The only thing that seems to mar your appearance is your teeth. It would be great if you could do something about the yellowed teeth and feel better about your overall appearance.

You’ll find that the North York cosmetic dentists have a solution. By undergoing treatments managed by a professional, the yellowing will soon be a thing of the past. Since the dentist monitors the progress so carefully, you don’t have to worry about overdoing things and ending up with teeth that are unnaturally white. Once the initial round of treatments are done, you will like what you see in the mirror and take pride in your total appearance.

Enjoy the Party

Who can really enjoy a party when you think everyone is looking at your teeth? When they are discolored, it’s easier to hang back and not participate in conversations or any other activity that would call attention to your mouth. No one wants to spend an entire night saying nothing and only providing others with a tight-lipped smile.

Once you complete the whitening treatments, relax and have fun. Tell jokes without wondering if anyone is staring at your teeth. Laugh out loud and smile as broadly as you want. Jump into the conversations or start one of your own. Being sociable in just about any situation is easier when you know your teeth look great.

Look Younger

When people think about looking younger, they tend to have visions of coloring their hair, losing weight, and making some changes to their attire. While those do help, don’t overlook the impact that your teeth have on how others perceive you. Yellowed teeth tends to make people look older even when they have darker hair and little to no wrinkles. After the whitening treatments, you can bet that people will think you look your age or even younger rather than assuming you are older.

The treatments for teeth whitening have come a long way in recent years. Call us today and set up an appointment. We’ll examine your teeth and provide an idea of what a few whitening sessions will accomplish. Once you see the difference, you will never want to walk around with yellowed teeth again.

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
