Tooth discolouration is a natural occurrence often due to the foods we eat, the ageing process, and lifestyle choices. Unfortunately, the result of these outside factors may be teeth that appear dull or even yellowed. The good news is that there are solutions to help you achieve a brighter smile if you feel it's time.

Here's what you should know about teeth whitening in South Calgary.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you have an important event coming up, or you'd like to brighten your smile for a vacation or a wedding; the best option is an in-office tooth whitening treatment. In-office teeth whitening is quick and effective and can be completed in under two hours so you can achieve the results you're looking for quickly.

We'll start by protecting your gums with a barrier, and then we'll apply a high-strength whitening gel to your teeth. Finally, we finish the treatment with a fluoride boost to help reduce sensitivity. Most patients notice results soon after their in-office teeth whitening procedure.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you have more time available and you'd like to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home, a take-home teeth whitening kit is a good solution for you.

We'll create custom plastic trays using impressions we take of your teeth. The snug fit protects your gums from any excess whitening gel and helps you achieve the results you want. The process takes about two weeks to complete when you whiten your teeth for 30 minutes each day.

An additional benefit of take-home teeth whitening is that you can use your trays in the future to brighten your smile whenever you like.
