Does professional teeth whitening in Calgary NW hurt?

teeth whitening calgary nw nervous woman

Your teeth are like fingerprints. Everyone's teeth are completely unique to them. With that said, the way your teeth react to professional teeth whitening can vary greatly from other people.

Professional teeth whitening can indeed cause pain and discomfort. With that said, there are many complex factors that play into this phenomenon. This includes:

  • Pre-existing sensitivity & dental health issues
  • The teeth whitening technology used
  • Ingredients in the whitening agents
  • The application process
  • Treatment length

If you have sensitive teeth to begin with, you are more likely to feel uncomfortable at points in your treatment process. With that said, there are many ways of preventing pain and discomfort during the whitening process — so you can get the white, bright smile you want without it being at your expense.

Our processes of teeth whitening in Calgary, NW are designed to offer your max comfort with optimal results!

First, we ensure that your teeth are in the correct condition to be treated in the first place. Administering teeth whitening on damaged, infected or decaying teeth or gums can be extremely dangerous.

For your safety, we will NOT preform whitening if your teeth are compromised and offer alternative solutions, such as a root canal, fillings and more.

This is important to keep in mind if you ever attempt over-the-counter whitening. Not all teeth are suited for bleaching and doing so anyways can harm your smile. This doesn't exactly help you achieve the aesthetic value you may be seeking.

Second, we build a treatment plan with you that usually includes sessions lasting 30 mins of Phillips Zoom Whitening! This is to prevent over-exposure on your teeth and stagger the process, reducing risk of discomfort.

Third, we provide clear care instructions specific to you and your teeth. This is to help you manage any post-treatment sensitivity (which is totally normal) and, if applicable, prep your teeth for the next round of teeth whitening in Calgary, NW.

When followed, these guidelines can help ensure your glowing smile is long-lasting and feels great to show off!

Teeth whitening
Some FAQ,s

white teeth calgary nw

Big milestones in life are worth capturing in pictures. Weddings, graduations, or even just special holiday get-togethers are examples of such big, important moments. On these occasions, you want everything to be perfect – the perfect hair, outfit, and smile. The memories contained in the photographs will remain for years to come.

Unfortunately, many people dread showcasing their smiles because of teeth that may be damaged or stained. This, in turn, ruins confidence and the desire to look back on old photos.

Thankfully, The Nosehill Dental team can help to restore smiles, making them look healthy and bright. How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening – What are the facts?

Many things can cause teeth to become discoloured over time. Age, smoking, or consuming foods and beverages containing tannins (such as cola, coffee and tea, or chocolate) can contribute to staining and a dull appearance.

Keeping your smile fresh and healthy has numerous benefits. Routine dental whitening sessions can help you to maintain your self-esteem and lead to better overall health.

At Nosehill Dental Centre, you have the option of choosing from a variety of procedures, specific to individual needs and budgets. These include at-home whitening trays or in-office laser cleaning methods administered by your dentist.

If you have any general questions or are wondering if teeth whitening is safe for you, look no further. Our Calgary dentist team has provided a teeth whitening FAQ to answer several common concerns.

Is teeth whitening safe?

laser teeth whitening calgary nw

Teeth whitening is very safe. We use only the recommended and proven methods to treat your smile.


Are take-home teeth whitening trays as effective as in-office laser teeth whitening?

Yes, both are comparable. However, the Zoom! teeth whitening treatment offers you faster results in a much shorter period of time.

An at-home whitening tray can be used for many years and it may also be a cheaper alternative to laser treatments.


Why is laser treatment more effective than store-bought teeth whitening strips?

Teeth whitening using laser treatment is very targeted and it breaks through whitening materials. It is the quickest and safest option as it focuses on specific teeth and limits the chances of gum tissues being affected during the procedure.

With strips, the peroxide used during the application can get into your gums and cause nearby teeth or gums to become highly sensitive and inflamed.


How does teeth whitening work in our Calgary teeth whitening dental clinic?

There are generally two options offered at Nosehill Dental Centre.

Nosehill Dental offers take-home teeth whitening trays customized to fit your teeth. They are available for you to wear anytime, including during the night. Results are typically noticeable after several weeks, depending on the dosage of the peroxide gel.

Then, there is the Zoom! treatment, administered by a trained dentist. Sessions normally last approximately 30 minutes and significant differences can be noted after about 2-4 visits.

How can I keep my teeth white longer?

Decreasing or eliminating foods or beverages that may cause staining, quitting smoking, and ensuring that you follow good home-care practices, including daily brushing and flossing, are vital in helping to maintain a healthy-looking smile.


Nosehill Dental  offers teeth whitening in Calgary

As advised by the Canadian Dental Association, you should seek the advice of your dentist before trying any new procedures. This is especially true when using abrasive materials to whiten your teeth. Remember to inform your dental practitioner of any preexisting conditions or teeth sensitivity.

At our dental clinic, we believe that “All People Are Awesome.” Diversity is at the core of Nosehill Dental’s brand. We anticipate your needs and go the extra mile to ensure a comfortable and safe teeth whitening experience, tailored to each individual. Our dentists are proud to help spruce up your smile and make sure you confidently capture those big moments in pictures.

Stained/ Yellow Teeth?
Teeth whitening to the rescue

teeth whitening calgary nw

Many people have discoloured teeth and may often feel self-conscious when they are around others. Suffering in silence or putting up with “imperfect” teeth don’t have to be your reality when there is a vast array of options available for effective treatment.

Good dental health has always been of paramount importance for many people in their every day lives. It helps to maintain confidence and limit the risks for further dental or overall health issues down the road.

Teeth discolouration is very common, and the reasons for the problem can date back to childhood in some cases. The most common causes are smoking or chewing tobacco, which are now thankfully on the decline.

Drinking excessive tea, coffee or cola drinks is another common cause of teeth discolouration, and it is the tannin inside the ingredients that does the damage. Taking antibiotics as a child, trauma, poor dental hygiene and general aging are some of the other common sources for teeth discolouration.

For your convenience and budget, we have two methods of teeth whitening available. The first is an in-office procedure called ZOOM! Laser Teeth Whitening. The second is the use of a Take-Home Kit that you can conveniently use at the comfort of your home. Ask us about both!


How does laser teeth whitening work?

Laser Teeth Whitening Calgary NW is one of many available dental remedies designed to revitalize the colour of your teeth. Whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste are available treatments that you can use from home. Laser teeth whitening may be the quickest, safest, and most effective teeth whitening method. In this treatment, a special laser whitening gel is applied to the teeth and a high-intensity laser is used to penetrate the whitening materials.

This procedure may take up to approximately two hours to be completed and is performed in a cosmetic dentist’s office. It is a safe treatment that specifically focuses on the affected teeth and therefore limits the chances of gum tissues being affected.


How does take-home teeth whitening work?

Take-Home Teeth Whitening is another method, which involves preparing custom trays by taking a simple impression of your mouth. Our team will create trays that you can take home and use at your convenience.

There are several advantages to using this system. We custom fit the trays to you, thus limiting the risks of ingesting the whitening agents. In addition, our results may be more pronounced than those seen in over-the-counter products as we use strong whitening agents.

By allowing the usage of this teeth whitening Calgary NW package at home and at your convenience, you may have greater control over the look and feel of your teeth.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

We know your smile is important when interacting with others! A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful – it can help you feel better about yourself and help you make a memorable impression.

Your lifestyle and the aging process may stain and darken your teeth. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking.

Teeth whitening Calgary NW can help to get your smile looking its best. Non-professional procedures and clinically unproven teeth whitening tips may sometimes lead to unsatisfactory results. A whitening procedure should be:

  1. Fast and convenient;
  2. Long lasting;
  3. Safe and effective.

Proper aftercare can help teeth remain white for a long time! To keep your smile bright as long as possible, try these easy tips:

  • Follow the “white teeth diet”: drink white wine instead of red wine, cappuccino instead of espresso, and grapefruit juice instead of cranberry juice;
  • Use a “whitening” toothpaste with a mild abrasive or peroxides (for example Opalescence Toothpaste, Supersmile, ZOOM Whitening Toothpaste and most of the over-the-counter “Whitening Toothpastes”) on a regular basis.
