What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Aging can result in many changes, this includes changes to our teeth. Our teeth naturally darken as they become stained and discoloured. Many factors can cause the discolouration of your teeth, including:

  • Foods and beverages like coffee and red wine
  • Habits such as smoking
  • Dental hygiene upkeep
  • Accidents and injuries

Professional teeth whitening can be a safe and effective way to help whiten and brighten your smile. The process is simple and can change the colour of your natural tooth.

At Fort Malden Dentistry, our team can help you determine if whitening your teeth is right for you.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. A brighter smile can boost your self-esteem and confidence.

Additionally, taking care of your oral health can have an impact on your overall health and well-being. 

How Teeth Whitening Works

Our dentists use a non-toxic and non-allergenic peroxide-based gel in teeth whitening treatments. This gel safely breaks down stain molecules, which can result in a whiter, brighter-looking smile.

Different shades of white suit different people. Our dentists can use a guide to help you choose the right shade for your teeth.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

At Fort Malden Dentistry, we offer a teeth whitening option that can safely, efficiently, and effectively whiten your teeth. How does it work? First, a barrier is applied around your gums to protect them, and then a thin layer of whitening gel is applied to each tooth. Upon successful completion of your treatment, your teeth should be visibly lighter and brighter.

Personalized Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you opt for take-home whitening, we will take impressions of your teeth and create custom whitening trays. You will apply the whitening gel to these trays and wear them according to the instructions. You should notice that your teeth are noticeably whiter at the end of the treatment period!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Here we offer some answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Fort Malden Dentistry

  • How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

    Whitening is not permanent. Beverages such as coffee and wine, and certain foods, such as those that contain turmeric, can stain the teeth. Depending on diet, the effects of whitening may last longer for some people than others. If you maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine, you may just desire a touch-up after one year or so. 

  • Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening?

    No, dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of teeth whitening.

  • Does teeth whitening make teeth more sensitive?

    One short-term side effect of teeth whitening may be sensitivity. For most patients, this fades away within a few days following a whitening session. To minimize any discomfort, we recommend that you use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste before treatment, and for at least two weeks following your treatment.

  • Do teeth whitening products work on all stains?

    Typically, brown, and yellow-coloured stains respond best to teeth whitening treatments. Some stains tend not to respond to whitening treatments at all. If having a whiter smile is important to you but your teeth have non-responsive stains, your dentist may recommend other cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns or veneers that may be a better fit for you.

  • Does teeth whitening work on dental restorations?

    Unfortunately not. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will not work on existing dental restorations such as dental crowns or veneers. If crowns or veneers are part of your treatment plan, teeth whitening should take place before you receive your dental restorations.

  • Will teeth whitening damage my tooth enamel?

    When used under the supervision of a qualified dentist, teeth whitening is very unlikely to damage your dental enamel. Always consult with your dentist to ensure you are using any teeth whitening products safely. If you experience any pain, sensitivity, or discomfort anywhere in your mouth, let your dentist know right away. Even if it’s not related to whitening, they will be able to help.
