Whitening

One of the most common questions that patients ask us is options for whitening their teeth. There are multiple options available, including ones from the drugstore or from your Oshawa Dentist at King Park Dental Oshawa.

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. Custom-fit whitening trays are made by taking a mold of your teeth and professional strength whitening gel is applied onto the trays to whiten your teeth. The whitening gel is more effective because it is at a higher concentration than over-the-counter products. As well, the custom whitening trays allow the gel to come into contact with your entire tooth, allowing even whitening.

Your dentist at King Park Dental Oshawa can also evaluate your teeth to see if you are a good candidate for whitening. Fillings and crowns is not natural tooth and will not whiten like your own teeth. Therefore, it is best to see us for a consult before whitening your teeth!
