We want you to have a bright, beautiful smile! Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discolouration. Teeth naturally darken with age and can be affected by the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, blueberries, colas or soy sauce. Teeth whitening is a procedure that uses different concentrations of peroxide based solutions placed onto the tooth surfaces. Bleaching can be done in the office or at home. Chairside bleaching is where a protective gel is placed on the gums and then a highly concentrated bleaching solution is applied to the teeth in the dental office. If tooth sensitivity is a concern, we will likely recommend the “at home” whitening system where custom made trays are used with a bleaching solution applied to the tray. The take home bleaching system is usually recommended for a period of 7-14 days for approximately 30-60min per day. We want you to have the smile you deserve.
