A simple smile can express many things. And a confident smile can become your signature! Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment that changes the color of natural tooth enamel and is an excellent way to improve the aesthetic of your smile. Teeth naturally darken over time. A variety of lifestyle factors, such as diet and smoking, can also make a significant contribution to the darkening of teeth as you age.
At McArthur Dental Centre, we have two options for whitening darkened or stained teeth. Your dentist can advise you on the best option for you.
A) Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening in Ottawa
Professional bleaching treatments can be completed in our dental clinic in Vanier in about an hour and a half. After isolating your teeth, a whitening gel is applied and a special Zoom light is placed over your teeth. This process will be repeated several times until the desired shade of white is achieved.
B) Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening in Ottawa
We also offer take-home whitening kits to patients who prefer the convenience of whitening their teeth at home. These at-home whitening kits produce the same results as in-office whitening, but will take a longer period of time to achieve the desired results (2-3 weeks).
