Teeth Whitening Montreal


What is Tooth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening is actually a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discolored teeth to a healthy, natural color. Don’t be misled by unproven and ineffective over-the-counter whitening solutions. Our office uses an advanced procedure that is only available from your dentist as we choose the best products as rated by independent agencies.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Teeth become discolored for many reasons. Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarette smoke yellow the teeth. Certain medications, such as tetracycline, cause the teeth to become gray. Even the natural act of aging affects the color of teeth.

Is Whitening Safe?

Whitening is very safe. We use a product that has been proven safe when used under the direction of a dentist.

Is Whitening For Me?

Your dentist will evaluate your teeth and smile to determine whether whitening is right for you. In some cases a different cosmetic procedure may better meet your expectations, but whitening is a safe, fast and easy process that is effective for almost everyone!

What Is The Whitening Process?

These trays will guide the whitening agent to the areas of your teeth that need to be whitened. We will record the current color of your teeth to help you monitor your progress.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients see results after the first treatment. It will typically take a few treatments to restore your teeth to a lighter color. The time it will take depends on the original color of your teeth, how discolored they were, and how frequently the treatment is applied.

How Long Will The Results Last?

The effects typically last a few years. Many patients choose to “touch-up” their teeth every 6 to 12 months after their regular cleaning. “Touch-ups” are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that stain teeth, like coffee, tea, and colas.

Are There Any Side-Effects?

Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity to cold, or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a day or two.
