Coffee, tea, soda, tobacco products, and more can stain your teeth, causing your smile to lose its healthy luster and shine.
Professional teeth whitening can eliminate surface stains and brighten your smile with safe and fast results.
Dr. Podilsky has over 40 years of experience in the field of cosmetic dentistry and can whiten your smile at our Edmonton, AB, office.
Why Are My Teeth Stained?
Patients with healthy teeth and gums can still have discoloration on their teeth. Naturally, your teeth will discolor with age as the white enamel layer diminishes and the yellow layer underneath, dentin, becomes visible. This process can be accelerated if patients regularly drink coffee, wine, soda, and other dark beverages and foods.
Professional Tooth Whitening Has Many Advantages
Our practice uses professional Zoom® whitening to achieve bright white smiles for our Edmonton, AB, patients. Our professional tooth whitening treatments provide numerous benefits that you can't get with store-bought whitening products, like strips and toothpaste. Professional tooth whitening means:
Zoom treatment uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening formula that is safe and comfortable, even for patients with sensitive teeth. The dentist can adjust the strength and amount of hydrogen peroxide to fit your needs, and our custom-fitted mouth trays won't irritate your gums like traditional one-size-fits-all trays you'd buy at the store.
We can whiten the enamel of your tooth by up to 8 shades in just one session. On average, the dental treatment takes less than an hour and delivers immediate results, unlike whitening strips and toothpaste that gradually whiten the teeth over time. The dentist will add more bleaching gel when necessary and handle the entire process. All you have to do is sit back and relax.
Results with Zoom teeth whitening last an average of 1 to 2 years. Zoom uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel that's much stronger than over-the-counter tooth whitening products that contain about 5 to 10% hydrogen peroxide. Professional whitening is proven to be more effective than store-bought treatments and will give you the noticeable results you are looking for.
Professional teeth whitening at our Edmonton, AB, office is customized to each patient. In-office, the dentist will adjust the amount and strength of the bleaching gel for your desired results. At home, a custom-fitted mouth tray can help you avoid leaks that come from store-bought one-size-fits-all mouth trays.
Simple Cosmetic Dental Procedure
Teeth whitening is one of the most straightforward and affordable cosmetic dental procedures. The treatment is painless, even for people with sensitive teeth. Our dentist can adjust the strength of the hydrogen peroxide to account for sensitivity. Teeth whitening is a simple way to enhance your features without undergoing surgery or committing to a structural change.
Your smile is a feature people notice right away, and feeling confident about your smile can make you a more outgoing and approachable individual. Professional teeth whitening is a great way to boost your confidence and enhance your overall appearance. Patients can confidently enter the world with brighter, beautiful teeth, smile for pictures, and make stellar first impressions.

We Offer At Home Teeth Whitening Kits
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. Fill the tray with the bleaching 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.

Maintaining Your New Smile
While teeth whitening is not permanent, you can take steps to help your results last longer:
Avoid Staining Products
Stay away from certain darkly colored drinks that are known to stain teeth. If you choose to indulge in a coffee, soda, or glass of wine, try drinking through a straw to minimize contact with the enamel on the front of your tooth. After drinking these beverages, brushing or rinsing your teeth can also help you maintain a whiter smile.
Use Whitening Toothpaste
While whitening or bleaching toothpaste is usually ineffective on its own, it can help you maintain your bright new tooth color after professional treatment. These products won’t significantly brighten your teeth, but whitening toothpaste can help your teeth from discoloring further.
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 Downtown Edmonton dental office and consider periodic touch-ups when the results start to fade. Patients often use our at-home whitening treatment to maintain their whitened smile between in-office dental visits.
