How Teeth Become Stained

Our teeth will naturally darken naturally as we age due to staining, which happens both inside the tooth and on its surface. Many factors contribute to discolouration of teeth, including:

  • Eating food and beverages that stain such as coffee, fruit juices, and berries
  • Smoking
  • Insufficient dental care and oral hygiene 
  • Accidents or trauma

Professional teeth whitening can safely whiten the colour of your teeth. This process is simple, minimally invasive and can target and remove surface stains that have darkened the colour of your teeth.

In-office or take-home teeth whitening... it's your choice.

Our goal is to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile, your way. That's why we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. No matter what you choose, you can look forward to revealing a beaming smile.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. Teeth whitening treatments can give you pearly whites you'll be proud to show off.

With teeth whitening, you may find that you experience an overall boost in confidence. Additionally, many of our patients find that having whiter teeth makes them feel more inclined to keep up with their oral hygiene so that they can maintain their results for longer.

What Happens During Teeth Whitening?

Our dentists use a peroxide-based gel in teeth whitening treatments. This peroxide gel breaks down stain molecules, which can result in a whiter, brighter-looking smile. The gel is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and very safe to use.

Different people choose different shades of white depending on their preferences, and the colour of their natural teeth. Your dentist can help you choose the right shade for you.

Teeth Whitening Options

At Highland Dental Centre, you can choose from in-office or take-home teeth whitening to lighten the colour of your teeth whichever way works best for you.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In our clinic, we offer teeth whitening that can safely and effectively whiten your teeth. Your dentist will start by applying a barrier around your gums to protect them, and then apply a thin layer of whitening gel to each tooth. Once your teeth whitening treatment is done, you should see a noticeable change in the shade of your teeth.

Personalized Take-Home Teeth Whitening

With our at-home whitening option, you can achieve a brighter smile at your convenience. With this teeth whitening option, we'll take impressions of your mouth at our office and create custom whitening trays. We will then provide you with whitening gel to apply to the trays and wear for as long as your dentist instructs you to do so. By the end of your treatment, you should notice that your teeth appear significantly brighter.
