Professional Teeth Whitening For A Brilliant Smile

Having stained, discoloured teeth isn’t just an aesthetic downer, it can really take a toll on your confidence and sense of self-worth. If your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like, you might find yourself holding back that pretty smile of yours and instead of flashing those pearly whites when your picture is taken, you’ve mastered the “thin-lipped” smile. Stress over the appearance of your teeth can negatively impact your life, but it doesn’t have to. If you’re tired of living with stained or discoloured teeth, you might be wondering about teeth whitening options.

Causes of Stained Teeth

Stained and discoloured teeth are a natural part of life and can be caused by many factors such as:

  • Age
  • Diet
  • Disease
  • Tobacco use

As you age, your teeth can become discoloured as the enamel that covers your tooth becomes thinner. There are also many foods and drinks that can stain and discolour those pearly whites. Soft drinks and coffee are some of the more common culprits.

Stained and discoloured teeth can also be caused by certain medical conditions, or due to trauma to your teeth. Using tobacco can also cause your teeth to become yellow or stained, not to mention being a real drag on your breath and overall well-being.

Do I Need Whiter Teeth?

Your smile is the window into your personality. While avoiding teeth whitening won’t directly contribute to any specific health issues, it may negatively impact your sense of self-confidence, leaving you shying away from showing off your smile to others.

First dates, special events, and job interviews don’t react well to hidden smiles and a less than confident personality. Such occasions are a good time to consider how teeth whitening might contribute positively to the outcome of those experiences.

Whitening your teeth can boost your self-confidence and prevent you from having to hide your smile or photoshop yourself in pictures. Teeth whitening is a process that will make you proud to laugh and eliminate the anxiety of discoloured teeth.

Common Questions From Our Patients

Is in-office bleaching more effective than at-home kits?

Yes! we use only the best whitening products that last longer than store-bought kits. Aside from being less effective, they can also irritate your gums. Our Phillips Zoom machines helps to protect the enamel of your teeth better than at-home kits bought from the shops.

How long will it take?

Is it safe?

Yes. We use Phillips Zoom, makers of one of the highest rated whitening systems in the world. We recommend it for almost any patient who wants a fresher, brighter smile. It has been used by more than 10 million people around the world.

Will my teeth be sensitive?

Everyone responds differently to whitening, and sensitivity is sometimes a side effect of whitening treatments. Ask us about using a sensitivity toothpaste like Fluoridex before and after your treatments. You can also use a mild desensitizer like Relief ACP in conjunction with your treatments to further minimize sensitivity.

Do you offer home whitening kits?

Yes. Philips Zoom DayWhite offer superior at-home whitening for a visibly whiter smile in one day and your whitest healthiest smile in seven to fourteen days. They are the only at-home whitening products to contain amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), which is clinically proven to reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and help improve the lustre and smoothness of the teeth.

Zoom at-home whitening products are completely customizable. Your dentist creates a custom tray made just for you and can tailor the formula concentration and wear times to your sensitivity and lifestyle.

What To Expect

Our teeth whitening program uses a gentle and safe teeth whitening process that is used around the world. Whitening products often consist of a strong hydrogen peroxide gel and a specialized lamp that restores discoloured enamel caused by age, food, drink, and bad habits.

The specialized lamp allows the peroxide to break down, allowing oxygen to set into the enamel and whiten stains up to 8 times its original colour! The process is completely pain-free and doesn’t take much time to perform! Our experienced staff are known for gentle and safe care when it comes to teeth whitening, as well as general excellence in restorative dentistry.

Post-Treatment Care

For 24 hours after the teeth whitening process, avoid the use of:

  • NICOTINE: cigarettes, cigars, vapes, and other tobacco products
    TEETH STAINING FOODS: red meat, chocolate, all fruit and berries, and dark sauces
  • DARK STAINING DRINKS: coffee, tea, wine, beer, and fruit juice.
