The Spa Dent teeth whitening system is now available at Dr. Jordan Benedict's Port Hope Dental Office. With this in-office whitening system, teeth may whiten 2 - 8 shades in as little as 30 minutes. Spa Dent whitening uses a cool blue and red LED light that activates the product, whitening your teeth deeper and faster for longer lasting results. There is virtually no sensitivity.
We recommend that you get your teeth cleaned before getting the whitening done for best results. Click here!

|What Are the Risks Associated with Energy Drinks?
Many of us have come to rely on energy drinks for an extra boost but have you considered their effect on your smile? These drinks can be very damaging to tooth enamel due to their ability to decalcify (or dissolve) the enamel, which is critical for maintaining the strength of the tooth.

Energy drinks contain corrosive acids. These acids leach minerals out of your tooth's enamel. Enamel is the cover that protects the visible part of your teeth. Once your enamel is gone it does not regenerate.
