Stains that have accumulated on the enamel of your teeth over time will render the surfaces to appear dull and even yellow or brown. This can certainly be embarrassing to look at. Don’t let this hinder your smile and lower your self-esteem! At Port Hardy Dental, we offer teeth whitening services to help your teeth restore shine and brightness. Teeth whitening is an easy and non-invasive dental treatment that offers immediate results.
There are two teeth whitening options you can choose from depending on your needs. The first option involves coming into the clinic for a laser teeth whitening treatment. The second option gives you the flexibility of taking a teeth whitening gel home to apply onto your teeth. Whichever option you choose, the results will leave your teeth looking more healthy and white. However, keep in mind that teeth whitening is not permanent, therefore a touch-up may be needed every several years.
You can learn more about the two whitening services below.
Our in-office teeth whitening system provides a quick and effective whitening treatment while minimizing sensitivity to your teeth. Typically, you can expect to achieve up to 2-6 shades lighter in just one visit. Of course, results will vary depending on types of stains and quality of tooth enamel. Persistent stains from frequent smoking, drinking coffee, tea, or wine may require more sessions to achieve the desired results.
Take Home Whitening
This option may be for you if you prefer to perform the procedure in the comfort of your home. Trays will be made specifically to fit your teeth with a teeth whitening solution. The tray will be worn twice a day for 30 minutes for at least two weeks. This may take longer depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. Please note that you may experience some sensitivity during this procedure. Don’t worry, this is normal. The discomfort or sensitivity should subside after you end the whitening treatment.
