Teeth Whitening & Cosmetic Dentistry
There is a wide variety of whitening products available, and now there is even the choice between getting your teeth whitened in the chair, or investing in a take home kit. With benefits to both, I would like to take a moment to educate those who are interested in whitening their teeth on what to expect.
When people choose to get whitening done, they need to understand that results may vary. Some teeth will see a dramatic transformation just a few days, while others can take a few months. The average time is usually between 2 to 3 weeks. The reason for this is due to the hue of the teeth. The more yellow versus gray color you have in your teeth, the better the bleaching. Grey enamel is more difficult to bleach and can take a few months to achieve a result. If you are looking to whitening your teeth for your wedding day, it’s a good idea to give yourself a few weeks.
Each patient is unique and Dr. Singh of West Edmonton Dental Choice will be able to find the best plan for your teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry & Smile Enhancements
Smiles are an important part of everyday human interaction. If you are currently unhappy with the appearance of your smile and are embarrassed for others to see your teeth, we can help. Ask your nearest Dental Choice office what cosmetic dentistry services can enhance your smile and help you feel more confident in your overall appearance.
Treatments such as porcelain or zirconia veneers, dental bonding, tooth-colored fillings, Invisalign® clear aligner therapy and teeth whitening can be performed as part of a smile enhancement. Treatment is professionally designed and tailored to address each patient’s individual needs. Some individuals may need only one procedure to make over their smiles, while other individuals may require a combination of treatments. Our goal is for each patient to have teeth that are whiter, straighter, and smoother.
Zoom®! Professional Teeth Whitening is a common cosmetic procedure for patients who desire a whiter smile with a very small investment of time. Zoom whitening is only available in-office due to the chemicals, system, and light used. We also have take-home trays available, which are made with a prescription-strength bleaching agent. Both treatments are very common and can provide improved results in certain circumstances.
Cosmetic veneers can correct some cosmetic concerns. They are placed over teeth to conceal imperfections including chips, crookedness, and discoloration. We offer both zirconia and porcelain veneers. Often in just two office visits, after a comprehensive exam, cosmetic veneers can give you a healthy new smile.
Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy
Invisalign® clear aligner therapy offers an effective way for patients to straighten their teeth, using virtually invisible clear aligners instead of convention metal braces. Impressions are taken of the patient’s teeth and bite and used along with Invisalign® 3-D computer imaging software to create a series of clear retainers. These retainers are worn in succession, each one for approximately seven to fourteen days until teeth are fully aligned. Invisalign® trays are easily removable so that patients can eat, brush, and floss as they normally would.
