How does professional teeth whitening work?

Is your smile looking dull? Professional teeth whitening can help to brighten your teeth and restore your confidence. Here's a little about the teeth whitening process here our Vancouver dental office.

As we age our teeth naturally darken, and different lifestyle and food choices may stain our teeth over time.

Teeth can become discoloured due to certain medications, smoking, or frequently enjoying dark coloured food and drinks such as tea, cola, coffee and curry. 

Professional teeth whitening can be an effective, non-invasive way to brighten your smile.

At South Granville Dentistry we offer our patients custom teeth whitening systems that can be used at home to help remove stains and make teeth whiter.

Our Professional Teeth Whitening Process

To begin your journey to a brighter smile, make an appointment to see your dentist. At your appointment, your dentist will determine whether professional cosmetic teeth whitening is right for you, and which bleaching system will best provide the results you're hoping for.

While you're there, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth in order to have whitening trays made to fit your unique smile.

When your trays are arrive at our office, we will get all of the teeth bleaching materials ready for you to take home.

Your dentist will supply you with detailed instructions on how to use your whitening kit, including how to apply the gel and how long you should leave the solution on your teeth.

Whitening trays are thin enough that you will be able to talk and work while wearing them. The are even comfortable enough to be worn while you're relaxing or sleeping.

Generally, professional whitening treatments take 10-14 days to achieve the desired results.

After you have completed your whitening treatment be sure to store your trays in a safe place. You can reuse your custom fitted trays again when it's time for a touch-up. Contact our office when you need more of the whitening solution.
