Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Everyone deserves to smile with confidence.
Reasons for teeth whitening:
Wedding ~ Engagement ~ Job Interview ~ Birthday ~ Friend/Family Reunion ~ Appearance
- Teeth too yellow
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development causing white spots/patches).
- Stained teeth due to medications, tea, coffee, wine, ethnic foods & more.
- The boost to your confidence and self-esteem that comes from a great smile and radiant white teeth. Yellow teeth can be embarrassing. With a new and improved smile, patients are more likely to have confidence in their appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which is better: at home or in office?
The best option for you is really a matter of personal preference. You can choose to have the teeth whitening performed at home or at Radiance Dental Hygiene or we can provide you with your own customized teeth whitening kits to be carried out at home. Keep in mind, best results are only achieved in office.
Is whitening safe?
Yes. Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a
dental professional is safe. Any tooth whitening product, is not recommended for children or pregnant women.
What are the risks of home kits?
Some home kits do not contain enough of the whitening product to be effective. More generally, if a dental professional is not doing the whitening, the mouth guard provided may not fit properly resulting in leakage of the whitening material onto the gums and into your mouth, causing blistering and excessive sensitivity.
Are there any side effects?
Sensitivity during treatment may occur with some patients. Tooth sensitivity may occur after treatment but this usually lasts a few hours and with the help of your hygienist this can be minimized.
