Are you embarrassed to smile because you have discoloured teeth? Teeth whitening may be your solution. No matter what the reason, stained teeth are less than desirable and can bring down your confidence. Teeth whitening is one of the safer and more effective ways to brighten stained or dull-looking teeth. A few reasons for discoloured teeth are:
Poor dental health
Drinking soft drinks, coffee, and tea
While there are many over-the-counter teeth whiteners available in the market, not all might suit your requirements. Turn to Eagle Point Dental in Nanaimo for a wide range of teeth whitening options. We will help you choose the right option.

Keep these simple tips in mind after your teeth whitening treatment:
Drink only water in the first hour after the treatment.
Avoid food and drinks that could stain your teeth 24 hours after the treatment.
Brush your teeth in case you eat or drink anything that could lead to staining.
In case you experience sensitivity, taking NSAIDs such as Advil can help. Call us for a consultation.
