Tooth whitening can remove or reduce teeth stains. Tooth staining is usually the result of consuming coffee, tea, wine (red) and tobacco.
We've observed that when a person has whiter teeth, they tend to feel happier with their smile and more confident in themselves. As a result, we offer two types of tooth whitening.
- Take-home tooth whitening kit: during your appointment, impressions of your teeth are made to create "bleaching trays", which are like a thin mouthguard. Whitening paste is applied to the inside of the trays and placed over your teeth in your own time, often at night, for a certain amount of time.
- In-chair whitening session: done during your appointment in the dental chair, where a high-powered light basically bleaches the stains out of your teeth is used. This procedure is quicker but costs more than the take-home whitening option.
- We generally recommend a combination of in-chair whitening and the take-home whitening kit. This is because studies have shown that combining the two options yields the best results.
