Teeth Whitening in Grande Prairie

Achieving a beautiful smile can be easier than you think. Many people achieve the appearance they’re looking for with a simple teeth whitening procedure.

Dental bleaching is a simple process to correct tooth discoloration, which is caused by staining, aging or chemical damage. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe way to create and maintain a whiter, more brilliant smile. In cases where the teeth are extremely discolored, porcelain veneers or dental crowns may be the only option, but bleaching is nearly always worth a try and may help the outcome of other cosmetic treatments.

How does Teeth Whitening Work?

Tooth bleaching is safe, quick and inexpensive. Just let us know you would like to whiten your teeth during your regular checkup and we will create an impression of your mouth to help construct specialized trays to hold the bleach on your teeth. Your custom bleaching trays will be ready for pick up within a day or two, and we will provide you with a special bleaching agent that you can apply yourself.

Depending on which bleaching agent you receive, the trays are used daily for a half hour to overnight for about a week, after which time your teeth should be significantly whiter. The bleaching agent removes stains from your enamel without altering the tooth structure or damaging your existing dental work. Once your teeth have reached your desired brightness, you only need to retreat them occasionally to maintain your new brighter, whiter smile.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

  • Corrects straining on brown, yellow and spotted teeth
  • Works for people of all age groups
  • It is a near-permanent way to restore brightness and whiteness to a smile

Teeth Whitening Considerations

Many over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, these can sometimes cause harm to the gums and teeth, so it is safer and more effective to consult with the teeth whitening experts at Higson Dental Group for your treatment.

How Many Appointments Does the Whitening Process Need?

The whitening process will take two appointments.

The first appointment will take 30 minutes to make the molds (impressions) of
your teeth. After you leave, we will create the models of your teeth and fabricate
custom flexible trays.

A few days later you will need to come in for a short visit to get the custom
trays and whitening material.

Will Bleaching Damage my Teeth?

The use of teeth whitening products with a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide does not damage teeth. The nerves in the tooth can get irritated by hydrogen peroxide as it penetrates the tooth, however this effect is temporary and does not cause damage to the tooth.

A study done on teeth whitening that concluded that if the manufacturer’s instructions are followed, hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide based tooth whitening is safe and effective.

Whitening Teeth Tips

Although dentist-supervised whitening is the safest and most effective solution, there are many things that you can do to maintain whiter, stronger teeth for the long term:

  • Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day to remove naturally staining bacteria.
  • Eat foods with natural abrasives (i.e., stain removers), such as apples, carrots, and celery.
  • Eat dairy and other foods high in calcium.
  • Minimize or avoid activities that stain teeth, such as drinking red wine and smoking cigarettes.
