Big milestones in life are worth capturing in pictures. Weddings and graduations 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?

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.
