Tooth whitening is a procedure that can lighten the shade of your teeth and remove staining or discoloration caused by ageing, medications, or diet and lifestyle factors such as drinking coffee, tea, wine, or using tobacco products. Tooth whitening will not last forever, so the procedure will have to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain the desired colouration.

Tooth whitening can be done at home or in the dental office. Our dentists will often take a photo of your existing tooth colour to monitor your progress and compare the new lighter shade of your teeth throughout treatment.

In-office treatment can brighten your teeth by six to ten shades. Our in-office whitening procedures are done via the Zoom technology system. This procedure usually takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete. It can produce immediate results delivering a smile that averages eight shades whiter! Maximum comfort is a priority - thanks to the adjustable intensity settings, we are able to custom set your treatment to maximize your comfort.

For in-home whitening, our dentists will take an impression of your teeth and then make custom mouthpieces (trays) to fit your teeth. The dentist will give you a supply of bleaching gel (usually containing hydrogen peroxide) that is applied to the tray and then you will be instructed to wear the tray for a certain amount of time. Care should be taken to use only the prescribed amount of whitening gel as any excess of the product can contact your gums and cause irritation.

Both in-home and in-office tooth-whitening procedures can cause increased tooth sensitivity in some people. this is a normal side effect and usually subsides a few days after the whitening treatments have been completed. Whitening procedures should be avoided if you are pregnant.
