Bleaching Could Lighten the Shade of Your Teeth

Many people consider teeth colouration to be an important feature of their smile. If you are not pleased with the colour of your teeth, you may be a candidate for bleaching.

Find out if bleaching is right for your teeth.

All of our services are performed by a general dentist.

What is Dental Bleaching?

Bleaching is a method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The process involves the use of a mild solution placed in a custom-fitted tray worn over your teeth. No natural tooth surface is lost, and no anesthetic is usually required.

Types of Dental Bleaching

Active Bleaching

Active bleaching is performed in your dentist’s office and may require more than one appointment.

The dentist applies lubricant to your gums, laying down a protective dental dam to shield your gums, tongues, and lips. After cleaning your teeth and removing excess lubricant, your dentist applies conditioner to your teeth, following up with a rinse and dry. The whitening solution is then applied to your teeth and left to process. Once the processing period is complete, your teeth will be rinsed and polished.

Passive bleaching is performed at home under your dentist’s instructions and involves wearing a custom-fitted appliance (or tray) with a mild tooth-whitening solution. Your dentist will give you detailed instructions regarding when you need to wear your tray and for how long. You will need to return to your dental office periodically to ensure the whitening system is working effectively and your teeth and gums remain healthy.
