Teeth Whitening Candidates
Teeth whitening and bleaching is often an ideal solution for patients who desire a whiter smile but whose teeth are in otherwise healthy condition. Patients whose teeth are chipped or cracked in addition to being discolored may be better candidates for porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Patients whose teeth are discolored or stained due to the natural aging process, smoking, or from drinking beverages such as coffee, tea, colas, and red wine are excellent candidates for tooth whitening and bleaching. We are committed to providing professional treatment for all patients, including those with highly sensitive teeth and those with dental anxiety.
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
We are proud to offer teeth bleaching with the Zoom!® Teeth Whitening System. In only one hour, the Zoom®! in-office procedure can whiten teeth by an average of eight shades.
To achieve visual results, a special Zoom!® prescription strength gel is applied to each tooth. Then the Zoom!® LED accelerator light is focused on the gel, causing it to break down and release oxygen. The oxygen permeates the teeth and whitens them so that the patient’s smile becomes noticeably brighter.
We also offer Zoom!® take-home whitening trays for patients who prefer to have their teeth whitened in the comfort of their own homes. Take-home trays are worn for approximately one to two weeks and can whiten teeth by an average of six shades.
Why Should I Talk to My Dentist Before Teeth Whitening?
Since some teeth whiteners can lead to damage and even tooth sensitivity, it’s important to have an initial consultation with your dentist. When you visit a Dental Choice office in Calgary or Edmonton, we can discuss your desires, examine your teeth to see if whitening is a good option and help you choose the best product to restore your smile.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
The process takes an hour maximum to achieve a whiter, more vibrant smile. It’s divided into four 15-minute applications for maximum carbamide peroxide gel concentration and light exposure. Individuals with sensitive teeth may require a lower light setting for less intensive treatments, while those with very heavy stains may require additional treatments.
How Long Will the Results Last?
This varies from patient to patient and depends on the types of foods and drinks you consume in your daily diet. This also depends on your general oral hygiene practices. The results of teeth whitening should last up to one year. Again, depending on your daily habits, periodic treatments may be recommended for those who smoke or consume coffee, red wine, colas and other staining foods or beverages. Most people whiten again every six months.
With a quick visit to one of our dental tooth whitening offices in Calgary or Edmonton, we can work together to safely restore your pearly-white smile. If a whitening treatment isn’t right for you, we can discuss alternative treatments, like bonding or veneers. Either way, the best way to get your smile back starts with a visit to one of our Dental Choice offices.
