I want to thank Dr Moussa for a job well done. She fixed my teeth perfectly and takes her precious time to fix it. She gave so much care for her patients. She doesn't care how much time she will spend with her patient just to make sure that they are happy and satisfied. She has her magic hands - I didn't feel anything. I feel comfortable and so happy with the outcome. I wish I'd known about her a long time ago.

    Optimal Timing for Teeth Whitening:

    We emphasize the strategic timing of teeth whitening. Important to note, whitening treatments do not alter the colour of crowns, bridges, veneers, or fillings. We advise initiating the whitening process before undertaking any such restorations. This approach allows for a seamless match between your naturally enhanced smile and any subsequent dental work.

    Professional teeth whitening can remove stains and discolouration from the tooth surface and the area deep within in.

    Understanding Stains and Discolouration on Teeth:

    Surface Stains: Our teeth are protected by a layer of enamel composed primarily of minerals. Tooth enamel is so strong, it’s the hardest substance in your body.

    Tooth enamel is also porous, it contains tiny holes which absorb substances that stain your teeth, including:
    • Beverages: Tea, coffee, red wine, colas, and various fruit juices are known for their dark hues that can seep into enamel pores.
    • Sauces: Intensely coloured sauces, like tomato and soy, leave their mark on your smile.
    • Sweets: Sugary drinks and snacks not only threaten dental health but also contribute to staining.
    • Fruits: Berries, cherries, pomegranates, and other brightly coloured fruits have natural pigments that can discolour teeth.
    • Tobacco Use: Products containing tobacco are a leading cause of tooth discolouration.
    • Diet and Hygiene: Inadequate nutrition and oral care practices can exacerbate tooth staining.

    Deep stains: Beneath the enamel lies a naturally yellow or grey layer, contributing to our teeth’s colour as we age or as the enamel thins. This internal discolouration may also result from certain medications, health conditions, or trauma, affecting the tooth’s inner beauty.

    Our team is dedicated to addressing both surface and deep stains with professional teeth whitening solutions, offering a path to restoring the natural allure of your smile.

    Top Teeth Whitening Options

    Teeth whitening is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without relying on more invasive procedures like veneers. Having your teeth whitening at our office or carefully following the instructions in your take-home kit will show results without any lasting sensitivity.

    Professional whitening treatment

    For many seeking a brighter smile, professional in-office teeth whitening represents the pinnacle of effectiveness. This advanced procedure involves the application of a powerful bleaching agent into custom-fitted trays that snugly cover your teeth. The magic happens when a specialized laser gently warms the solution, catalyzing the oxygen molecules within to delve deep into the enamel and lift away stains. This method not only delivers instantaneous enhancements but also meticulously minimizes the potential for sensitivity and gum discomfort, setting a new standard for achieving a luminous smile.

    Take-home teeth whitening kit

    Understanding the value of convenience and comfort, we proudly offer personalized take-home whitening kits. Tailored to fit the unique shape of your teeth, our kits ensure even and thorough whitening by perfectly conforming to every contour. Crafted from impressions of your teeth, these custom trays surpass one-size-fits-all alternatives in both comfort and effectiveness, significantly reducing the likelihood of sensitivity and irritation. Over three to four weeks, witness a gradual transformation to a brighter, more confident smile from the privacy of your home.

    Cost of professional teeth whitening in Calgary

    Teeth whitening treatment performed by dental professionals in the office can cost something in the ball-park of $600 to $1200. A take-home kit provides you with more affordability while still receiving guidance from dental professionals and may cost approximately $300 to $600.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Plaque forms when bacteria from food and drink particles aren’t cleaned properly from your teeth. Without thorough and frequent brushing, plaque evolves into tartar—a stubborn, hard substance that only professional dental interventions can eradicate. This process can lead to a noticeable yellow discolouration, especially if brushing habits are less than optimal.

    Yes, teeth whitening is safe. Some individuals may notice teeth sensitivity after the first few treatments, which often decreases over time. For optimal safety and results, especially with take-home kits or store-bought products, following the provided instructions precisely is crucial.

    Whitening treatments do not affect the colour of crowns, veneers, or fillings. If these are located on your front teeth, they’ll retain their original hue even as the natural teeth around them become whiter. This could result in a noticeable contrast. It’s essential to consider this before deciding to whiten your teeth, as it may highlight dental work.

    Typically, teeth whitening treatments are not covered by dental insurance plans. To confirm your specific coverage, we recommend contacting your insurance provider directly.

    To extend the brilliance of your teeth after whitening, think of your smile as a white shirt—avoid anything that would stain it. This includes beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, and coloured soft drinks, as well as foods like tomato sauce, curry, soy sauce, red meat, and chocolate. Essentially, steer clear of all fruits except bananas to keep your smile shining brightly.

    The longevity of teeth whitening results can vary, typically lasting from several months up to three years. However, this duration can be significantly influenced by lifestyle choices and oral hygiene practices. Regular consumption of staining foods and beverages, smoking, and inadequate oral care can shorten this timeframe.
