Teeth Whitening in Calgary - Dental Clinic in Calgary
If you are looking for ways to help alter the colouration of your teeth, your cosmetic dentists in Calgary at Westhills Dental Centre will be more than happy to help you out with this goal. There are a variety of reasons that your teeth may become stained or yellow, including:
- Staining foods or drinks, such as coffee, tea, or sodas
- Tobacco and similar products
- Certain medications
- Pulp damage
Additionally, your teeth may appear whiter depending on the surrounding area. This can include darker skin or makeup around your mouth.
Westhills Dental Centre offers the teeth whitening system, Zoom! to help alter the colouration of your teeth.
Westhills Dental Centre offers two types of treatments for teeth whitening in Calgary: in-office or at home. Our in-office bleaching treatment involves first applying a lubricant to your gums and placing a protective material around your teeth to keep your gums, tongue, and lips protected from the whitening solution.Your teeth are then prepared with a conditioner which is then rinsed and dried. The bleaching gel is placed on your teeth and left on for approximately 15 minutes. During this time, the bleaching gel removes the surface stains from your teeth. This process is repeated several times until your desired shade is achieved.
For patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at home, we can create custom-fitted mouth trays for you to wear. The bleaching gel is placed in the trays which have to be worn for a short period of time every day during your treatment period. Depending on the severity of your stains, you may have to wear them for several days to weeks. However, most people should start seeing results after a few days.
Please keep in mind that your teeth may be more sensitive to hot and cold foods during your whitening treatment. This sensitivity should subside within a few days. It may help to use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth prior to your treatment to help reduce tooth sensitivity.
