Our teeth may get stained and become darker as we age. With professional teeth whitening at our North Vancouver dental clinic, we can help restore your smile's natural brightness.
Brighten Your Smile
One safe, effective way to lighten your teeth and remove surface stains is to use professional whitening services.
The whitening solution contains active ingredients such as carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide.
As the active ingredient breaks down, oxygen acts on the tooth enamel and produces the whitening effect.
As we age, our teeth become darker. If discolouration has left your teeth darkened or stained, we can help. Our in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments are both great options. We can help you choose the best one for you.
At your teeth whitening appointment, we will create a custom whitening tray and capture impressions of your teeth.
During the following appointment, you will pick up your tray, whitening and gel and detailed instructions on how to apply the gel.
The whitening gel should be placed in each tray and you'll need to wear the trays in your mouth for about 1 to 2 hours a day. Many patients wear their trays overnight, as they sleep.
You'll typically see results within 10 to 14 days, with significant change in tooth colour appearing in four to six weeks.
Occasionally, teeth may be so stained that the effectiveness of tooth whitening is minimal.
In these instances, dental crowns or veneers may serve as an excellent alternative.
