The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

While store-bought teeth whitening kits improve the color of teeth, the results pale in comparison to teeth whitening treatment conducted by dental professionals. Doctors Hadian and Burke possess the necessary skills and training to professionally whiten teeth with much more noticeable results and without all the hassle that comes with at-home solutions. Simply sit back, relax, and enjoy a whiter smile in no time!

The following are only a few of the advantages of professional teeth whitening:

  • Personalization: Based on your oral condition, we’ll create a personalized teeth whitening treatment plan to achieve the most satisfactory outcome.
  • Performed by Experts: Dr. Hadian and Dr. Burke possess the necessary training, tools, and time-tested techniques to expertly whiten teeth. They know exactly how to perform the procedure and follow all safety protocols during it for your protection.
  • Dramatic Improvement: Unlike the whitening solution you’ll find in store-bought teeth whitening kits, we use a clinical-strength teeth bleaching solution that will eliminate stains and dramatically improve tooth color.
  • Immediate Results: Only professional teeth whitening yields exceptional results in as little as one hour.
  • Even Results: Over-the-counter whitening products are notorious for uneven whitening. Our professional teeth-whitening procedure results in uniformly white teeth, without any yellowing left in those hard-to-reach spaces.
  • Comfort: Our whitening process includes the use of a laser to minimize any chance of sensitivity and gum irritation.

At-Home Tooth-Whitening Kits

Want whiter teeth but don’t want to come into the office? Not a problem. Brookside Dental Care offers personalized take-home tooth whitening kits, so you can achieve a brighter smile in the comfort of your own home.

Unlike store-bought tooth whitening kits, our take-home kits gradually whiten teeth over 3 to 4 weeks. These kits include the following: 

  • Medical-Strength Whitening Gel: Our clinical-strength whitening gel boasts a much greater whitening power than any store-bought product.
  • Custom-Molded Dental Trays: Unlike the one-size-fits-all dental trays found in store-bought teeth-whitening kits, we craft our trays using a mold of your actual teeth. This ensures a snug fit, allowing a more even application of the whitening resulting in uniformly white teeth.
  • Expert Guidance: Our dentists will personally guide you through the entire teeth-whitening process. If you have any questions or concerns during the process, simply give us a call and we’ll be happy to give you expert advice to help you achieve the best results possible.

Why Do Teeth Become Stained or Discolored?

There are two types of tooth stains: surface stains and deep stains.

Surface Stains

Our teeth are protected by a thin outer mineral layer called enamel. Enamel is the strongest substance in your body and helps protect teeth from all types of damage. However, the enamel is also porous and absorbs certain substances that can stain your teeth over time.

The following are the most common substances that often stain teeth:

  • Dark-colored beverages including tea, coffee, wine, colas, and fruit juices.
  • Dark-colored sauces such as tomato and soy sauce.
  • Sugary beverages and foods.
  • Brightly colored fruit such as berries, cherries, and pomegranates.
  • Tobacco products.

Deep Stains

Tooth discoloration also occurs in the layer just below the enamel, known as the inner portion of the tooth. This tooth layer is naturally yellow or gray in color. As a person ages, the enamel wears away and the underlying color shows through, making teeth appear dull or dingy. Medications, illness, and injury can also discolor the inner portion of your teeth.

The Teeth Whitening Process

Initial Exam

Before beginning your teeth whitening procedure, one of our doctors will take time to discuss the procedure with you to better understand your expectations and how to best achieve them. Once we’ve confirmed that teeth whitening is the best solution for you, we’ll closely examine your mouth to determine the health of your teeth and gums.

Treatment

During your in-office teeth whitening, a bleaching solution is applied to the teeth using specially designed trays. Once the trays are in place, a laser is used to gently heat the solution, activating oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel to remove stains. Laser teeth whitening offers immediate results. It may also help reduce the risks of tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

Aftercare

Once we’ve completed your teeth whitening treatment, you will see results within an hour. Most patients only require one visit to achieve their desired result. You may experience some tooth sensitivity after your treatment. To ease tooth sensitivity, we recommend using a soft-bristled brush and sensitive formula toothpaste, and consuming room-temperature foods and beverages until the sensitivity subsides.

Frequently Asked Questions

Plaque forms when bacteria from food and drink particles aren't cleaned properly from your teeth. Over time, plaque hardens to form tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist or hygienist. This yellow coating can form on or around your teeth if you don't brush often enough or thoroughly enough.
While teeth whitening is considered safe, you may experience some teeth sensitivity. You may experience this on your first or second treatment, and it may diminish with time. It is important to always carefully follow the instructions that come with your take-home kit or with over-the-counter products.
If you have any crowns, veneers or fillings on the front teeth, they will not change colour with whitening. Whitening the surrounding teeth may make the crowns and fillings stand out.
Teeth whitening is not often covered by insurance. Call your insurance provider to find out if they cover you. We can provide an estimate for you to submit to your provider.
After a teeth whitening treatment try to avoid any foods or drinks that would leave a stain on a white shirt. Any dark staining drinks like Tea, Coffee, Red Wine, coloured soft or alcoholic drinks and fruit juice and any foods like tomato sauce, curry, soy sauce, red meat, chocolate and all fruit except bananas.
Depending on the type of teeth whitening and how well you maintain your teeth, whitening can last for anywhere from 6 months to up to 3 years.
