Teeth Whitening

Is your smile beginning to lose a little of its sparkle? This happens to all of us naturally over time and as we age. There are also certain foods we eat and lifestyle choices we make that can affect the colour of our teeth.

If your teeth are in need of an enhancement, whitening can be a quick and cost-effective way to improve your smile. Dental Design offers two convenient options for brightening your smile, and most patients are pleasantly surprised at what an impact teeth whitening can make.

Why Are My Teeth Discoloured?

There are many factors that contribute to the discolouration or staining of our teeth, such as:

  • Beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, or cola
  • Foods such as marinara sauce, curries, soy sauce, or berries
  • Smoking or using tobacco products
  • Certain medications

Over time, it’s natural for our teeth to lose their natural sparkle, and whitening can help combat those effects.

Take-Home Whitening

For take-home whitening, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and create custom plastic whitening trays. These trays are designed to fit your teeth snugly to protect your gums and soft tissues from excess whitening gel. Next, we’ll show you how to safely apply the whitening gel to your whitening trays, and you’ll be able to whiten your teeth at home based on your own schedule.

Initially, we suggest whitening for two weeks to achieve your desired results; after that, you’ll be able to update as needed. Patients love the freedom they have to update their smiles before their next big event or vacation.

In-Office Whitening

If you’re seeking immediate results, in-office whitening is the right choice for you. After one short appointment at our office, you’ll leave with teeth that are 6 to 10 shades lighter.

We start by protecting your gums, lips, and other soft tissue, then we apply a high-strength whitening gel, which we activate with a special light. The final touch is a fluoride treatment to eliminate sensitivity, and you’ll be off to share your dazzling new smile with the world.

Free Touch-Up Whitening for Life

At Dental Design, we offer a unique service for our patients who choose to whiten their teeth with us. No matter which whitening system you choose, we’ll give you free whitening gel every twelve months, as long as you’re maintaining your routine six-month cleaning and check-up appointments.

Dental cleanings are a great way to help you maintain your bright new smile, and we’re also committed to helping you do that with free touch-up whitening.
