Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening.
Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.
WHAT IT’S USED FOR
The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the color of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color.
Every day, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains.
THE MOST COMMON REASONS FOR TEETH TO GET YELLOW OR STAINED ARE:
• Using tobacco
• Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
• Not taking good care of your teeth
Aging also makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker.
It is also possible to have stains inside the tooth. These are called intrinsic stains. For example, intrinsic stains can be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing. Other causes include tetracycline antibiotics. They can stain a child’s teeth if taken by a mother during the second half of pregnancy or by a child who is 8 years old or younger. Teeth are still developing during these years. Trauma may also darken a tooth.
Learn the Truth about Zoom Teeth Whitening
With so many different whitening products on the market, it’s easy to get confused. So here are the facts you need to know before you commit.
IS TEETH WHITENING SAFE?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
HOW LONG WILL MY ZOOM WHITENING RESULTS LAST?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discoloration. Only Philips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
With Philips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you will achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on concentration of formulation and wear time you select.

• PERIODONTAL (GUM) TREATMENT
Periodontal diseases, are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically susceptible individuals. Bacteria found in plaque produce toxins or poisons, which irritate the gums. They may cause them to turn red, swell and bleed easily. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth, causing pockets (spaces) to form.
Plaque, can also harden into a rough, porous substance known as calculus (or tartar). This can occur both above and below the gum line. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. However, don’t be fooled, as, you can still have periodontal disease without the presence of bleeding, redness and swelling. Further, pain is usually not associated with periodontal disease. Gums should not bleed when your touch or brush them. If you develop gingivitis, the initial stage of periodontal disease, it is your gums that will primarily be affected.
Symptoms of Gingivitis, the first stage, may include:
• Tender & painful gums
• Swelling & red gums
• Bleeding gums, especially after brushing
Symptoms of Periodontitis, the second stage, may include:
• Bad breath & foul taste
• Bleeding gums intensified
• Difficulty eating
• Pus from the gums
• Teeth becoming loose
• Teeth falling out
• Abscessed gums (collection of infected fluid)
Periodontal treatment, is necessary when various conditions affect the health of your gums and the regions of your jawbone which hold your teeth in place. Retaining your teeth is directly dependent on proper periodontal care and maintenance. Healthy gums enhance the appearance of your teeth, like a frame around a beautiful painting. When your gums become unhealthy, they can either recede or become swollen and red. In later stages, the supporting bone is destroyed and your teeth will shift, loosen, or fall out. These changes not only affect your ability to chew and speak; they also destroy your smile.
How is gum disease treated?
The main goal of treatment is to control the infection. The number and types of treatment will vary, depending on the extent of the gum disease. Any type of treatment requires that the patient keep up good daily care at home. The doctor may also suggest changing certain behaviors, such as quitting smoking, as a way to improve treatment outcome.
Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)
The dentist, periodontist,removes the plaque through a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove bacteria that contribute to the disease. In some cases a laser may be used to remove plaque and tartar. This procedure can result in less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort compared to traditional deep cleaning methods.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, patients must undergo a bone graft in order to be a candidate for dental implants.
A bone graft gives us the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance to the jawline.
Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is obtained from a tissue bank.
Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.
Before Guided Tissue Regeneration
In the past, teeth were often removed without placing bone graft into the site to preserve the shape of the jaw. Once the tooth is missing, the body no longer needs to maintain the width of the jaw which previously accommodated the tooth. Therefore the jaw bone shrinks in width and the gum tissue follows. This can lead to a deficient jaw bone which is too narrow or short to accommodate an implant.
Now, it is possible to preserve the shape of the jawbone at the time of tooth removal and regenerate bone previously lost from prior extractions through Bone Regeneration.
After Guided Tissue Regeneration
Socket preservation, is the procedure in which bone grafting is performed at tooth removal. This procedure can result in preservation and augmentation of the bone which surrounds the tooth. Tooth removal must be carried out conservatively to promote fast and pain free healing. This is best performed using the surgical microscope and micro surgical techniques. The tooth socket is then grafted with a combination of different bone graft materials , each with specific properties , to maximize the amount of bone regeneration. The bone graft is then covered with a type of collagen barrier to contain the graft and separate it from the gum tissue. The gum tissue is then conservatively advanced to reduce the exposure of the graft to the oral environment. Socket preservation usually takes about 1.5-2 hrs to complete. It is generally associated with little discomfort and no swelling. The greatest inconvenience after the procedure is the patient needs to chew softer foods on the opposite side of the mouth for 2-3 weeks. Four months after the procedure the patient is ready for implant placement.
If the patient, has already lost bone structure from previously removed teeth and requires regeneration prior to implants the procedure is very different. As an analogy, pretend the wood floor (bone) under a carpet (gum tissue) has a large hole. The carpet is now displaced into the wood floor. The furniture in the room (pressure from other forces; lips, cheeks, eating) also resides over the hole and places pressure in that spot. In order to restore the hole, the wood floor would need rigid struts to bridge the gap in the floor. A non rigid material would not be able to withstand the pressure from the carpet and furniture and would collapse. This is often the situation with bone regeneration for implants (guided bone regeneration- GBR).
When bone is lost, after tooth removal, this is analogous to the hole in the wood floor. To regenerate the bone, materials are used to maintain the desired shape of the bone under the gums, and bone graft is placed within that shape. The shape can best be maintained using rigid materials/barriers (non resorbable) not resorbable. Non resorbable materials mean that they need to be removed at a secondary procedure. Resorbable materials are indicated when the amount of bone missing is minimal (a very small hole in the floor). Over time resorbable materials become compressed from the pressure of the gum tissue, lips, etc and the desired result is not obtained.
COSMETIC PERIODONTAL SURGERY
A cosmetic procedure using a connective tissue graft is used to cover unattractive tooth roots, gum recession, and protect the roots from decay and eventual tooth loss. Using micro-surgical techniques pain is often eliminated and complications can be avoided due to better visibility, illumination, enhanced skill, and the use of smaller instrumentation. Using traditional & typical periodontal techniques, this procedure is often painful, fraught with complications.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of short teeth, this also can be greatly improved by cosmetic periodontal surgery.
Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, crown lengthening.
With typical techniques there are often residual defects or invaginations in the gum tissue which can take from months and up to year to resolve. This is avoided with micro surgical techniques where fewer traumas is transferred to the gum tissue and therefore healing is greatly promoted through careful handling of structures.
Crown lengthening (or crown exposure), is required when your tooth needs a new crown or other restoration. The edge of that restoration is deep below the gum tissue and not accessible. It is also usually too close to the bone or below the bone.
The procedure involves adjusting the levels of the gum and bone around the tooth in question, to create a new gum-to–tooth relationship. This allows us to reach the edge of the restoration, ensuring a proper fit to the tooth. It Should also provide enough tooth structure so the new restoration will not come loose in the future. This allows you to clean the edge of the restoration when you brush and floss to prevent decay and gum disease. Using micro-surgical techniques the chance of damaging the roots during bone reshaping is greatly reduced due to the enhanced visualization.
Guided Tissue Regeneration
Guided tissue regeneration, is the reconstruction and regrowth of lost bone due to periodontal disease. Predominately, a specialized piece of material made of freeze-dried human or synthetic bone is used for its healing proteins and resorbable membranes. This material is sewn around a tooth to cover a crater in the bone that has been meticulously cleaned. The gum is then sewn over the fabric to prevent the gum tissue from growing down into the bone defect. This stimulation allows the bone and the root to regenerate. After four to six weeks, the fabric is removed using a minor surgical procedure.
Just as skin creates a sterile environment that protects our bones from bacteria and harm, gum tissue protects the bone in the mouth. Gum recession occurs when the dense gum tissue barrier is broken leaving a small wound where bacteria can enter the bloodstream as well as leave the teeth vulnerable to bacterial invasion, erosion and root decay. Without a gum graft procedure, gum recession is irreversible & will continue to exacerbate.
Fortunately gum grafting, (aka Soft Tissue Grafting or Connective Tissue Grafts) repairs the receding gum area to prevent further bone loss and recession and also to improve cosmetics of your smile. The procedure involves taking a piece of gum tissue from the roof of the mouth and placing it underneath existing gum tissue, covering the exposed tooth root while re-sealing the mucosa to once again protecting the tooth. Connective tissue grafts can also eliminate pigmentation of the gums, cover up crown margins (the black line visible when gums recede), thicken the gum tissue surrounding implants and crowns.
When using microscopic techniques and proper micro surgical training and skills, patients claim to have little to no discomfort. The gums heal quickly and without complications (traditional instruments and techniques can lead to significant discomfort, complications and delayed healing). Our periodontist, uses instruments that are used in eye surgery and clear stitches that will be invisible to others. No dressing material is necessary.
Some of the factors which may contribute to recession of the gums are an off bite, where the tooth is ill-positioned in the jaw bone, tooth brush abrasion, poorly shaped posts/crowns and periodontal disease.
Common Symptoms of Receding Gums May Include:
• Teeth look longer or gums appear to be pulling back from the teeth
• Yellow edge at the margin of the tooth where it meets the gum
• Hot & cold sensitivity at the gum line
• Deep pockets of gum forming in between the teeth
• See or feel spaces between the teeth developing
• Change in the way the teeth come together while biting
• Teeth shifting or moving
• Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums
• Bad breath or pus from the gums
The Gum Graft Procedure, is performed using the anesthetic Lidocaine and micro stitches and takes about 1.5 hrs to complete each tooth. The greatest inconvenience afterwards is that one cannot chew on the graft site for 6-8 weeks.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring.
These improvements are not always just cosmetic.
Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.
– Inlays and Onlays
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your Orthodontist.
Invisalign with Advance Technology: Greater treatment visibility and easier planning with the unique Invisalign treatment planning software.
Our Clincheck treatment software allows you to see a model of a proposed treatment plan and discuss with your Orthodontist what is most important to you before you start.
It is designed to accurately predict when you will complete your treatment.
Invisalign is nearly invisible treatment with high visible results. Now you enjoy a great smile during the treatment, not only after.
Invisalign is removable:You may experience improved periodontal health through better dental hygiene during treatment. With Invisalign, you can brush and floss normally.
Invisalign is comfortable: No metal allergies caused by metal due to brackets and wires.
Invisalign is customized: Custom manufacture means a tailored match to your teeth, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches.
Invisalign can give you freedom, you can eat whatever you desire. It allows you to continue your normal lifestyle without the restriction of brackets and wires.
• ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that diagnoses, prevents and treats irregularities of the teeth and face. Treatment can correct an irregular or “bad” bite, also known as a malocclusion.
Orthodontic care involves the use of appliances. There are two main types. Braces are attached to the teeth. Removable appliances are put in and taken out by the patient. These devices can be used to:
– Straighten teeth
– Correct an irregular bite
– Close unsightly gaps
– Bring teeth and lips into proper alignment
• ORAL PROPHYLAXIS
Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. This chalky substance will eventually build up over time, like limescale in a pipe or kettle. Usually it is tooth coloured and can easily be mistaken as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black in colour.
If calculus (tartar, as dentists like to call it) is allowed to accumulate on the teeth it will unfortunately provide the right conditions for bacteria to thrive next to the gums. The purpose of the cleaning and polishing is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care.
The professional cleaning of teeth is sometimes referred to as prophylaxis (or prophy for short). It’s a Greek word which means “to prevent beforehand” – in this case, it helps prevent gum disease.
• DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants, are substitute tooth roots providing a solid foundation for the replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like a natural teeth. Missing teeth in adults significantly affect aesthetics and oral function including misaligned bite, muscle distress, restricted chewing as well as excessive forces and shifting of remaining teeth. Patients can get implants either at the time of tooth removal or after the tooth has been missing for a period of time.
• ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root Canal Treatment or Endotontic treatment refers to the specialized dental procedure of removing damaged or infected dental pulp from a tooth and filled it with biocompatible and inert materials. It is a method that prevents the further developing and spreading of infection and the possibility of that tooth falling out. Root canal therapy is recommended in instances where an abscess (a pocket of pus that forms at the tip of the tooth’s root) becomes visible.
