Professional teeth whitening at our Edmonton dental office includes in-office and take-home options that can help lighten the colour of your natural tooth enamel.
Teeth whitening uses peroxide-based bleaching agents that lighten the colour of your teeth and remove surface stains. Oxygen acts on the tooth enamel as the active ingredient breaks down, creating the whitening effect.
At Azarko Dental Group, we offer the following treatment options for teeth whitening.
This traditional bleaching method uses a custom-made tray and whitening gel, which can only be obtained from your dentist. This process whitens your natural teeth.
With take home trays, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and on your own time.
They do not require a prescription and you can simply press the plastic strip to your teeth, allowing it to sit for the specified amount of time.
Typically, people who use take home strips report seeing a change in tooth shade within 10 to 14 days.
Sheer White self-applied whitening strips adhere closely to the contours of your teeth. One 30-minute application is included with a professional cleaning at our dental office, and should be applied at home on the same day.
Iveri Speed is a professional, light activated teeth whitening system that you can use at home.
Iveri Speed offers a quick and convenient whitening delivery method, with no custom trays or strips required.
Azarko Dental Group offers ZOOM! professional in-office whitening to make your smile lighter in the course of a one-hour appointment.
If you've never whitened your teeth before or would rather have it done by a professional, scheduling an appointment and having your dentist perform the procedure may help you feel more confident in the process.
This option may be ideal for people with stains that will not respond well to alternative teeth whitening methods.
To achieve the desired results, it's important to consult with a dentist before starting a tooth whitening regime.
During the ZOOM! procedure, your lips and gums will be covered with an isolation material to protect them from sensitivity.
Next, we will apply the whitening gel, which will then be activated by the specialty ZOOM! light source to break down stains and discolouration on your teeth.
This process will take about 15 minutes, and be repeated up to three times during your appointment.
If you are looking to make your brighter smile last as long as possible, maintaining an excellent at-home oral hygiene routine of regular brushing and flossing will help, as will seeing your dentist every 6 months for dental cleanings and exams.
Between appointments, you might also avoid foods and beverages that can cause staining, such as berries, tea, coffee and more. With these measures, you may just require a whitening touchup after a year or so.
