Teeth Whitening in Calgary

Say Buh-bye to Dull, Stained Teeth

and hello to a sparkling smile by our Calgary dentist.

Over time, our teeth can become stained, discoloured and dull in appearance due to a variety of factors including age, medications, smoking and the food we eat and drink. Fortunately, reversing unwanted discolouration and achieving the whiter, brighter smile you’ve always wanted is easier than you may think. 

Our Calgary dentist office offers safe, professional in-office teeth whitening as well as at home teeth whitening options. Call our Calgary dentist today to find about which option is best for you.

Are You a Candidate For Teeth Whitening?

Although most patients are good candidates for teeth whitening, there are some health and other considerations that may exclude a patient from being an appropriate candidate for either in-office teeth whitening or at home teeth whitening. 

Some of the factors our Calgary dentist will consider at your teeth whitening consultation appointment include the following:

your age

If you are younger than 18 years of age, our Calgary dentist may suggest that you wait until you are 18.

your allergies

If you have a sensitivity to peroxides, glycols, acrylates or other resins, our Calgary dentist will recommend alternative whitening products or other cosmetic dentistry options to whiten your teeth.

pregnancy or breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, breast-feeding or undergoing fertility treatments, you should delay your teeth whitening.

your medical history

If you are being treated for a serious illness or disorder (e.g. immune compromised), you should consult a medical doctor before teeth whitening.

previous teeth sensitivity

If you have experienced teeth sensitivity from whitening, let us know so we can make recommendations to alleviate teeth sensitivity or provide alternative cosmetic dentistry treatment options.

previous adverse reactions

If you have had a past adverse reaction to teeth whitening, teeth whitening is not recommended.

intrinsic staining or extensive dental work

If your staining is intrinsic (in the inner layer of the tooth) or if you have crowns, fillings, veneers or bridgework, whitening will not work in these areas. In these cases, our Calgary dentist will suggest other cosmetic dentistry solutions to whiten your teeth.

Things To Think About

Preparation Is Important

maximize your whitening benefit

For best results, we strongly recommend that you attend at our Calgary dentist office for a teeth cleaning within one month of your proposed whitening treatment. Any plaque or tartar build-up on your teeth will prevent whitening in those areas so it’s important to remove it prior to whitening.

Your Smile Is Unique

results vary from patient to patient

Although most patients see a noticeable difference after completing either our Calgary dentist’s in-office or take-home whitening systems (when used as directed), teeth whitening results differ in every patient regarding both extent of whitening attained and number of treatments required to see results.

Teeth Sensitivity

it's usually temporary

Sensitive teeth after teeth whitening is usually temporary and resolves after the whitening process is completed. If sensitivity persists or is intolerable, be sure to let our Calgary dentist team know so we can suggest a desensitizing gel or toothpaste or recommend discontinuation of teeth whitening.
