Teeth collect stains over time due as they are exposed to colourful foods, tea, coffee, wine, or from tobacco use. We offer teeth whitening, also called teeth bleaching, to remove stains caused by everyday life.
Teeth whitening is safe for most healthy patients. A checkup with one of our Avenida Dental Centre dentists will ensure that your particular type of discolouration will respond to teeth whitening and that it will be safe for you.
We create custom take-home whitening trays for patients to whiten their teeth gradually over the course of several weeks. It is always more effective to begin a teeth whitening program following a professional dental cleaning, which removes tartar and surface stains.
Teeth Whitening in South Calgary
- Impressions of teeth
- Instructions on home whitening procedure
- Delivery of custom teeth bleaching trays
To avoid sensitive teeth and gums, follow the instructions precisely. Using more than the recommended amount of whitening gel could cause it to leak out of the tray edges.
Over time, stains can begin to collect again. We offer additional whitening gel for touch-ups should you wish to maintain the whiter, brighter appearance of your teeth.
We invite you to contact our dental office to arrange a consultation to discover if teeth whitening is right for you.

Dental x-rays are recommended to find teeth that are diseased or damaged that are not visible during a regular visual check-up. Often, cavities will occur between the teeth, underneath seemingly healthy enamel or below the gum-line. With x-rays we can catch these cavities in their early stages, significantly reducing the chance of more costly procedures such as root canal treatment or a crown. In addition to cavity detection, x-rays are a valuable tool for catching early-stage bone loss, infections or diseases.
How often should I get x-rays?
How often we recommend x-rays is dependent on a number of factors but generally, it's based on a patient's oral health, age, and signs of oral diseases. Overall we recommend x-rays to be taken on an annual basis with your biannual check-up. This ensures we can catch any tooth damage or diseases before they become larger and more costly concerns.
