Discolouration can happen due to age and the natural wear and tear of your teeth. Many of these off-white or yellow surface stains can be removed during your regular dental cleaning appointment.
However, drinking tea, colas, coffee and red wine regularly along with using showing tobacco, cigarettes and cigars can all stain teeth further.
Those brown and grey stains can be harder to remove, which is why we recommend professional teeth whitening.
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening
While over-the-counter teeth whitening products exist, our professional bleaching gel has been found to be more effective, with results lasting as long as five years. When done in-office, you can also feel at least knowing that our dental professionals will apply the treatment evenly so your smile will be at its whitest.
In-office teeth whitening applications are highly convenient, usually only taking between one and three hours. After examining your teeth and preparing them for the whitening, we’ll apply the gel and let it set. We might use a laser light to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. We also offer special Zoom whitening options – contact us today to learn more.
Take Home Whitening
An affordable and easy-to-use choice for many of our patients, your take-home whitening kit includes a custom-made plastic tray that fits perfectly in your mouth and the special whitening gel. We normally suggest using the kit consistently for 10 to 14 days depending on the severity of the stains. During your dental appointment we’ll show you how to apply the gel for the best application. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to answer them.
