Your smile is important! It’s one of the first things people see when they meet you. Unfortunately, things like coffee, tea, cola, red wine, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and overall bad hygiene can contribute to stained and discoloured teeth. At Pathways Dental Clinic, we are pleased to offer teeth whitening options that suit your needs and budget so you can remove signs of tooth discoloration and attain that bright white smile you’ve always wanted.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour 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, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Benefits of Teeth whitening

  • Boost in self-confidence
  • Younger looking appearance
  • Help make a positive first impression
  • Fix yellowing or stained teeth

What Causes Teeth, Stains and Discoloration?

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Tooth decay or trauma to the teeth
  • Certain medications
  • Drinking coffee, tea, colas, and red wine
  • Smoking
  • Eating acidic foods
  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of the outer tooth layer

Patients often come to us requesting a whiter, brighter smile, and giving our patients exactly that is our top priority. Our clinic provides both in-office and take-home options for teeth whitening.

At Pathways Dental Clinic, we understand that everyone’s smile is different, as is everyone’s expectations for whitening treatment. We strive to provide the absolute best quality care possible, and our team will carefully assess your cosmetic desires. All options will be presented to you, whether it is teeth whitening or dental bonding or porcelain veneers, or a combination of them all.

Types of Teeth Whitening:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Our professional Pathways Dental Clinic take-home teeth whitening kits are a safe, fast and effective way to remove stubborn discoloration and stains from your teeth, effectively whitening the enamel surface of the teeth more effectively than store-bought kits, all in the comfort of your own home. 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 dentist and is an excellent option to combat tooth staining in as little as one appointment. It typically takes around 60 minutes. Your 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 discoloured can be internally whitened to achieve great results. The whiting is done from the inside of the tooth, where staining may have occurred due to previous nerve damage or infection.

At Pathways Dental Clinic, our team of Dental Professionals can alter and improve the whiteness and brightness of your smile with our Teeth Whitening options, to help you increase your self-confidence and achieve a youthful, healthy, beautiful smile.
