Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening chart next to teethThinking about getting a smile makeover? Whitening your teeth could be just what you’re looking for. Our professional teeth whitening systems help tooth enamel look brighter, so that you can smile with confidence. In many cases, whitening precedes other types of cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as dental veneers or crowns. But it’s also a perfect stand-alone aesthetic treatment.

In-chair Whitening

For same day results, an in-practice whitening treatment is a great choice. This one-hour procedure dramatically brightens your teeth when you’re short on time. That way you can have a lighter-coloured smile for last-minute plans, such as a job interview or special event.

During an in-chair whitening session, we apply the gel to your teeth and activate it with a bright light. The light triggers the oxidation of stain particles, safely brightening the colour of your enamel. Even natural discolorations can be lifted from deep inside of your teeth.

It’s important to note that since same-day whitening is so powerful, some people do experience sensitivity afterward. If you’re someone who tends to have sensitive teeth, a take-home kit may be more appropriate.

Using a take-home whitening kit can give you the same results as an in-chair procedure, but in a gentler manner. It’s ideal for people who have sensitive teeth or are not in a rush to get their smile whitened. We’ll take a set of moulds to create custom trays. Then you’ll apply a small amount of whitening gel in the trays and wear them once a day (usually at night). In 10-14 days, you’ll see full results.

Several people choose to use take-home kits after an in-practice procedure to extend their results. You can top-off as needed to keep your smile bright. Simply stop by our practice to pick up a refill pack to have gel on hand when you need it.

Some of us have naturally brighter smiles than our friends and family members. Others may have a genetically darker hue to their enamel. Still, factors such as past medical history, medications and our diet can lead to tooth discoloration.

Some of the most common offenders include things like

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Soda

  • Red wine
  • Tomato pastes, curry
  • Smoking or other tobacco products

Scheduling regular scale and cleans can reduce tartar buildup and surface stains. But professional teeth whitening will target the discoloration that’s absorbed by your porous tooth enamel over the years. Even if you have naturally darker teeth, whitening is a safe way to help your smile look brighter.

Whitening is only advised for people who have healthy teeth and gums.

We carefully select quality whitening gels that are proven and effective. Some of the brands we use include Pola Day, Pola Night and Pola in-practice. From time to time we update our whitening lines depending on what’s available and the benefits that they offer to our patients.
