Teeth Whitening Near You
Daily brushing, flossing, and mouthwash are not enough to keep your pearly whites pearly white. Many foods, beverages, behaviours, and other factors can stain your teeth despite even the best oral care habits. We provide professional teeth whitening near you to whiten and brighten your smile.
Considering Whitening Your Teeth?
Teeth become discoloured and stained by a wide range of factors. Some factors are within your control: strongly coloured foods; strongly coloured drinks like colas, coffee, tea, and red wine; nicotine and tar from smoking. Other factors are outside your control: age; side effects of medication; trauma from injury; or the consequences of significant tooth infections.
Dental offices that provide professional teeth whitening in Calgary, AB use hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide bleaching compounds to dissolve stains on your teeth. Dentists can provide far superior teeth whitening than over-the-counter options because we use much stronger bleaching compounds and specialized equipment to tailor those compounds to your needs.
What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?
There are two options for professional teeth whitening near you. First, we can perform the whitening in our office. The whitening compounds will be placed in a tray that will be placed over your teeth for as long as necessary to gradually achieve the final result. Then, a powerful LED light — adjusted to your teeth’s sensitivity — will be shone on your teeth to accelerate the breakdown of stains. That process will be repeated four times in a one-hour appointment that can lighten your teeth by as many as eight shades. If you’re looking for professional results in the convenience of an at-home option for teeth whitening in Calgary, AB, we can provide take-home trays using our stronger bleaching compounds after assessing your teeth, listening to your goals, and customizing the materials to your specific needs.
If you’re interested in receiving teeth whitening near you, the results can last up to a year with good oral care habits.
Key Points About Teeth Whitening
- Not all discolouration can be resolved through teeth whitening. We can provide alternative solutions for discolouration related to trauma, infection, or the side effects of medication.
- Teeth whitening is most effective in dealing with yellowed teeth, less effective on browned teeth, and often ineffective on gray-tinged teeth
- Teeth whitening near you involves managing expectations because teeth are not actually white, but fall in a spectrum from gray-ish to yellow-ish.
