Teeth Whitening

ottawa teeth whitening

Your road to a healthy and bright, white smile.

Teeth yellow with age as a result of certain foods and drinks. The use of certain drugs, i.e., the antibiotic tetracycline taken as a child, and certain nutritional deficiencies, such as a lack of calcium, are also at fault.

Bleaching-Custom-tray whitening

Bleaching is an effective method to significantly whiten and brighten your smile. Our professional custom-made trays have the advantage of creating close contact between the whitening gel and your teeth, which over-the-counter kits do not. Also, custom-tray whitening allows for the application of more whitening gel with the concentration recommended by your dentist.

Take-home, dentist-supervised whitening with custom-made trays

This is the most commonly used method of lightening your teeth. Generally, you wear the trays for 10 to 15 min per day, for a period of two weeks. This method requires four visits.

First visit

Impressions are taken of your teeth from which special, custom whitening trays are made.

Second visit

Your current tooth shade is recorded. Bleaching trays are fitted and adjusted (if necessary). The trays deliver bleach to your teeth and protect your gums and the soft tissue of your mouth.

Third visit

After a few days we evaluate the progress of the whitening and estimate how many more days of whitening treatment you will require. We then give you enough gel syringes to complete the treatment.

Fourth visit

Two weeks after you have completed the daily treatments, the final shade of your teeth is recorded for future comparison. Your teeth are examined to determine if any restorations need to be changed to match your new tooth colour.

Laser Whitening

Teeth often darken with age and from staining as a result of certain foods and drinks. Thankfully, we can successfully reverse this effect using laser whitening techniques. The treatment is safe and produces amazing results that can benefit almost anyone with healthy teeth who would like a whiter, more dazzling smile.

Allow us to whiten your smile in as little as 30-45 minutes! The shade of your teeth can lighten as much as eight shades! Our special whitening gel is applied to your teeth and activated with a laser. This system comes with a take-home touch-up kit.
