We Are Your Choice for SW Calgary Teeth Whitening!
We know that your smile is important! It’s one of the first things people notice when they meet you. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful – it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression. Discoloured teeth can affect our self-esteem and overall confidence. Unfortunately, things we love like coffee, tea, cola, red wine, or smoking can all contribute to stained teeth. Other causes include taking antibiotics as a child, trauma, poor dental hygiene, lifestyle, and general aging. So many people live with discoloured teeth, and most are not aware of the options now available to them to get a cleaner, whiter smile. For your convenience and budget, Ultima Dental Wellness is pleased to offer Zoom in-office Teeth Whitening and take-home whitening solutions.
Whitening may be the answer you have been looking for to achieve the whiter, brighter smile of your dreams!
What is Teeth Whitening?
Whitening can get your smile looking its best. Non-professional procedures and clinically unproven teeth whitening tips can often lead to unsatisfactory results. Teeth whitening is a popular, safe, and effective teeth-whitening product, offered either as an in-office treatment or take-home treatment.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This procedure is carried out in-office and typically takes around 60 minutes. Your dentist will cover up the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Zoom 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.
Hydrogen peroxide works by breaking apart carbon bonds that create stains. The LED light used is adjustable during the procedure to minimize sensitivity and produce the degree of whitening required. Any discomfort experienced after the procedure dissipates after a while.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Take-home whitening kits allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and at your convenience. We first take a simple impression of your mouth. Our lab then takes the impression and prepares custom trays that you will take home and use at your convenience. Treatment involves wearing the trays with the special whitening solution, either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of days, depending on the degree of whitening required. There are several advantages to using this system over other take-home systems. We custom fit the trays to you, so there is never any risk of ingesting the whitening agents, and the trays fit perfectly in your mouth. Additionally, our whitening agents are more powerful than what you can purchase over the counter and therefore, the results will be more dramatic. By allowing you to use this whitening package at home and at your convenience we allow you to have control over how white your tooth color will become.
