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.
The first option are whitening toothpastes that can be bought at any drugstore. They work by removing surface stains on teeth, but are not effective at removing stains that are deeper within the enamel of your teeth.
At-home teeth whitening products, such as Crest White-Strips, contain the same active ingredient as professional whitening products, but at much lower concentrations. As a result, this option is less potent, which means that you may not achieve the results that you want, and may also take longer. As well, these options can cause uneven whitening due to them being one size fits all.
The last and most effective option is a professional whitening kit that you can get from your Oshawa Dentist at King Park Dental Oshawa. 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 Oshawa 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.

The Canadian Dental Association recommends that each child should see a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. At King Park Dental Oshawa, our goal is to catch any potential problems early. The baby teeth are very important and allow the permanent teeth to develop and erupt properly. Don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions for your Kids Dentist in Oshawa.

Why Wear a Sports Mouthguard?
Dental injuries are the MOST common type of facial injury in sports. In the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) it was reported that 13-39% of all dental injuries are sports-related. Most orofacial injuries, involving teeth, gums, lips, cheeks, and bone, can be PREVENTED by using a mouthguard.
Why A Custom Sports Mouthguard?
While “boil-and-bite” or “preformed” mouthguards are readily available, a custom-fabricated mouthguard provides many advantages. Custom mouthguards are fabricated by taking a mold of your teeth, and the mouthguard is made using the cast of your teeth and gums.
Custom mouthguards have SUPERIOR comfort, retention and protection. Better fit allows you to breathe and speak more easily.

For a variety of reasons, patients may be missing teeth, including cavities, trauma, fractures, and gum disease. As you can imagine, missing multiple teeth may make it difficult to chew, smile, speak, function, and exude self-confidence.
Various options to replace missing teeth include: bridges, implants, removable denture, implant-supported denture
One of the lesser known functions of teeth is to preserve the level of bone. Not addressing missing teeth early enough can result in the movement of neighbouring teeth into the space, or shrinking of the bone, in some cases requiring bone augmentation (bone graft) in order to have a dental implant placed. Therefore, it is always best to speak to your dentist even before you think you may lose a tooth.
At King Park Dental Oshawa, we have a dental implant specialist who can replace single missing teeth, and dentists that can help provide a dental bridge or implant-supported denture. These are modern ways that we can improve your quality of life. Speak to us about some of your options and don’t let missing teeth get in the way of your lifestyle.Read More.....
Many people may not realize how important the health of their teeth and gums is when looking at diseases in the rest of the body.
Research has shown that periodontal problems, or gum and bone disease,is associated with several other diseases. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body. More recent research shows that inflammation may be responsible for the association. In other words, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.
At King Park Dental Oshawa, we have our own periodontist who specializes in the health of your gums and bone. Please let us know if there is any way we can help!Read More.....
