With the holiday season approaching, you are probably starting to think about getting your holiday family pictures taken to give out to friends and relatives or even to have custom holiday cards made. In order to help you have a bright, white and beautiful smile, our Brampton dental clinic highly recommends getting your teeth whitened.

Teeth whitening helps restore the colour of your teeth and can make noticeable improvements, even if you only need to go a few shades brighter. You want to make sure your smile sparkles for all of your holiday pictures without having to worry about keeping your mouth shut. Whitening can be performed in-office at times that are convenient to your busy schedule. We can even accommodate whitening treatments over your lunch hour!

In addition to whitening treatments, our dental clinic is pleased to offer other cosmetic procedures, such as veneers, to give you a stunning holiday smile and impress your friends and family. Veneers are the perfect solution to cover minor imperfections in your natural teeth, like chips, crooked teeth or badly misshapen teeth, as well as teeth with excessive staining or discolourations that whitening is not able to fully remove.

No matter what types of procedures you decide to utilize to give you an outstanding smile, our dentists do recommend to have whitening treatments completed first before other procedures. The reason you want to get your teeth whitened first is because many of the other treatments and procedures we provide use tooth-coloured materials matched to the current colour of your teeth.

For instance, you want to get veneers to cover up some misshapen teeth in the front. Yet, the surrounding teeth are yellowish in colour. Do you really want your new veneers to be colour matched to yellowish teeth? Probably not. Otherwise you would end up with a few teeth that were bright white, where the veneers were installed, and yellowish coloured teeth next to them. As such, that is why we recommend teeth whitening treatments first, so both the veneers and the surrounding teeth are all the same white colour.

Before starting any cosmetic procedures, we also suggest having your teeth cleaned, depending upon the amount of time since your last regular visit. If it is getting close to the six-month time period, cleaning the teeth and removing plaque and tartar ahead of time is necessary in order to achieve the best results possible.
