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 dental checkup and we will create an impression of your mouth to help construct specialized trays to hold the teeth whitening bleach on your teeth. Your custom teeth 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 near you at Higson Dental Group for your treatment.

How Many Appointments Does the Whitening Process Need?

The teeth whitening process will take two appointments.

Your 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 concluded that if the manufacturer’s instructions are followed, hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide-based tooth whitening is safe and effective.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?


In Alberta, Canada, the average cost of in-office teeth whitening is $650, although it can climb to $1,000 or more, depending on the type of product used and how much your dentist charges.

Although there are cheaper alternatives than in-office teeth whitening like gel trays, they are not always safe as the trays are not custom fitted and may damage your gums.

Because we supervise the procedure, a stronger bleaching solution can be used than what’s found in home kits. A light or heat source may be used to speed up the process.

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.
