How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic service offered to help lighten and brighten teeth. The teeth whitening process helps to remove discoloration or stains from drinks, food, tobacco, or medications. Our whitening process is an accelerated whitening system that produces quick results and does not damage the teeth or gums.
The whitening gel contains an active ingredient, and this breaks down during the whitening process to allow oxygen to reach the enamel of the teeth. As a result, the teeth become brighter and lighter in color. Our professional Grande Prairie Teeth Whitening services offered can whiten teeth up to 10 shades lighter. Most patients see results instantly, or only after a few treatments. Having bright white teeth is important and builds confidence for patients of all ages. We want our patients to be proud of their smiles, and our team is here to help our patients achieve the smile they have always wanted.
The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
In our practice, professional teeth whitening is more effective than over-the-counter solutions. Custom-fitted whitening trays are part of the affordable procedure and should be used repeatedly until the required brightness is attained.

What Teeth Whitening Options Are Available?
Today’s Dental Grande Prairie offers professional teeth whitening treatments that can lighten teeth up to ten shades. During the procedure, the whitening gel disintegrates, allowing air to penetrate the enamel and whiten the teeth. Our in-office or take-home whitening methods might produce immediate or gradual results.
Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
People with yellow or stained teeth make the best candidates for teeth whitening. When compared to people with yellow-stained teeth, the teeth-whitening procedure may not work as well on you if you have brown-stained teeth. If you have purple or grey discolored teeth, whitening treatments may not be effective at all for you; porcelain veneers or dental crowns may be a better option.
Not everyone should whiten their teeth, and it is not advised for you if you fall into the following categories:
- Age of 16 or under
- If you are pregnant
- If your gums are infected
- If you have untreated dental problems such as cavities
What In-Office Solutions Are Available?
Options for teeth whitening in dental offices offer precise and quick results. With only 20 minutes needed. Our cutting-edge light-triggered whitening gel ensures quick results. To get your preferred hue and get rid of surface stains, we can repeat the process as much as necessary.
Can I Whiten my Teeth From Home?
Yes, you absolutely can! Our custom-fitted take-home trays allow you to relax in the comfort of your own home and whiten your teeth at the same time.
It’s important to think about the advantages as well as the disadvantages of either option though. For resolving persistent discolorations that cannot be adequately addressed with over-the-counter or take-home whitening treatments, professional teeth whitening is the best option.
