Food, drink, and lifestyle choices can have a significant effect on the appearance of our teeth. Most adults have some degree of staining on their smile, and many feel self-conscious of their teeth as a result.
Country Hills Dental Centre offers a number of whitening treatment options to visibly brighten your teeth. Request an appointment to find out if in-office whitening is right for you.
Types of Whitening Treatments
We use the ZOOM! In-office whitening system, which is a bleaching process performed with a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening agent and a special lamp. This lamp activates the hydrogen peroxide, allowing oxygen to penetrate the outer enamel and dentin to lighten stains. This process is not damaging to the tooth’s structure.
Your treatment includes an at-home touch-up kit to help the results of your treatment last longer. Your dentist will instruct you on how to use the kit. Be sure to follow your dentist’s instructions to the letter for optimal results.
We also offer at-home whitening, which can yield amazing results. Our take-home system is not like the whitening kits you can purchase at a drugstore. This is dentist-supervised whitening, which is safe, cost-effective, easy to use, and produces a whiter, brighter smile.
