Did you know you can whiten your teeth without sitting in the office?
Our Edmonton practice also offers at-home professional whitening kits. The take-home whitening system provides the same dramatic results from the comfort of your home. We start by taking impressions of your teeth, which are used to create custom-fitting bleaching trays. When the trays are ready, they are sent to you along with a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel. Simply fill the tray with the whitening gel and place it over your teeth. Patients should wear the trays for two to four hours (or overnight) every day for approximately two weeks to see the best results.
Candidates for Teeth Whitening
The best candidates for whitening are those with yellow tooth discoloration. Brownish-stained teeth respond less well to treatment, while grayish or purple-colored stains may not be affected by bleaching at all. Meanwhile, whitening will only work on natural enamel and will not affect a tooth-colored restoration. In these cases, we can recommend another aesthetic dentistry treatment, such as porcelain veneers or crowns to create a similar brightening effect. To find out if you qualify for treatment, schedule an appointment at our Edmonton dental practice today.
Take an Hour to Boost Your Confidence
Laser teeth whitening can achieve noticeable effects in just one hour. Whitening is also an affordable treatment compared to other cosmetic options.

Maintaining Your New Smile
Avoid Staining Products
Stay away from certain darkly colored foods and drinks that are known to cause discoloration. If you choose to indulge in a coffee or soda, try drinking through a straw to minimize contact with your enamel.
Use Whitening Toothpastes
While whitening or bleaching toothpaste is usually ineffective on its own, it can help you maintain your bright new tooth color after professional treatment.
Practice Good Dental Care
Make sure to take good care of your teeth by brushing twice daily and flossing at least once a day. Schedule regular dental check-ups at our Edmonton office and consider periodic touch-ups when the results start to fade.
