Dark or stained teeth are subtle signs of aging.  The foods we eat or drink, including healthy juices, coffee and wine can all accelerate the yellowing process. A professional teeth-whitening treatment is a safe and effective way to create a more youthful and beautifully white smile.

Who Can Have Teeth Whitening?

Provided your teeth and gums are strong and healthy, you should be suitable for this treatment. Your dentist at Vancity Dental will carefully examine your mouth prior to whitening to make sure your whitening treatment is safe and comfortable because your dental health is always our main priority. We can also discuss the effectiveness of this treatment as teeth whitening will not change the colour of existing dental restorations that include veneers, crowns and bridges.

How Quickly Can I Whiten My Teeth?

People often plan this type of treatment in preparation for a special event or vacation. There are two ways to have your teeth professionally whitened. The quickest is to have an in-office laser whitening treatment by your Vancouver teeth-whitening specialists at Vancity Dental. During just a single appointment, the overall color of your teeth will be lifted by several shades. Alternatively, you may wish to whiten at home using custom-made whitening trays.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

During this teeth whitening appointment with your Vancouver dentist, we’ll protect your lips and gums before painting your teeth with professional-strength whitening gel. The gel is activated with a special dental laser that helps the gel penetrate your teeth more easily and more effectively. We may wipe off and reapply the gel several times during your treatment.

Custom-Made Home Whitening Kits

With a custom-made home whitening kit, you will be supplied with whitening trays made to fit exactly over your teeth, along with professional-strength whitening gel that is safe for home use. You simply need to wear the trays for a few hours each day or even overnight to gradually and gently whiten your smile. It takes approximately two weeks to see the full effects of treatment.

How Long Will Treatment Last?

It all depends on your lifestyle habits like smoking and consuming highly-colored foods will stain your teeth more quickly. Our Vancouver dentist can tell you how frequently you can safely re-whiten your smile.
