Teeth whitening (bleaching) lightens teeth that have been stained or discoloured. At Scotia Square Dentistry in Edmonton, we have two whitening options at our office: an in-office treatment and custom fitted take-home whitening kits.
Over time, teeth can become discoloured and stained as a result of food and drink, habits like smoking, or age, wear and tear.
Teeth whitening is a minimally invasive method for improving the appearance of discoloured teeth that only requires a minimal time commitment.
At our dental office in Edmonton, we offer in-office teeth bleaching appointments, as well as take-home teeth whitening kits. During your teeth whitening consultation, we'll discuss your options, and choose the treatment method that works best for you.
Yes, many studies have shown that teeth whitening (bleaching) is safe, but may not be for everyone. Ask your dentist if teeth whitening is right for you.
No, teeth whitening will only work on your natural teeth. For this reason, we typically recommend that our patients have their teeth whitened before having these types of dental restorations completed (at least on the more visible teeth). That way, they can match their restorations to the lighter shade of their whitened teeth.
With proper care, the effects teeth whitening can last for many years. Taking care to avoid staining foods and drinks, and habits that can discolour teeth (like smoking), will go a long way in maintaining your results. You may find that touch-ups are occasionally necessary.
Most people with healthy teeth are candidates for teeth whitening. However, each person is different, so to find out for sure if teeth whitening is right for you, talk to your dentist.
