What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings, dental crowns in Calgary, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Types of Teeth Whitening:

Our Dental Team will monitor your progress closely to ensure that any side effects such as tooth sensitivity are managed quickly.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Our professional Pathways Dental Clinic in-office whitening treatment uses a high-quality and fast-acting, light-activated ZOOM Whitening. A more powerful and advanced whitening agent than our take-home kit, our in-office ZOOM Whitening is performed by your Calgary dentist and is an excellent option to combat tooth staining in as little as one appointment. It typically takes around 60 minutes. Your Calgary dentist will cover up the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Hydrogen peroxide whitening gel will then be applied to the teeth. The gel is exposed to special LED light and works to break the discoloration. The gel is left on for 15 minutes, and the procedure is repeated three to four times.

Internal Whitening

Teeth that have had a root canal treatment done in the past and are discolored can be internally whitened to achieve great results. The teeth whitening is done from the inside of the tooth, where staining may have occurred due to previous nerve damage or infection.
