Tooth Whitening

Want to Know The Best Ways to Whiten Your Teeth Nearby?

One of the most popular ways to whiten your teeth at home or in the office is through teeth whitening. However, not all teeth whitening procedures are created equal – some over the counter teeth whitening products can actually do more harm than good and cause permanent damage to your teeth, gums, and oral health overall.


Fortunately, if you’re looking for the best ways to whiten your teeth, it’s easy to find great teeth whitening services near you at Cornerstone Dental that will achieve noticeable results while leaving your smile healthy and dazzling!


Which one provides better results: teeth whitening at home or teeth whitening at the dentist?

When it comes to teeth whitening, there are two main options: you can either do it at home or go to the dentist. Each has its own set of pros and cons. For instance, teeth whitening at home is usually cheaper than going to the dentist.


However, it can take longer to see results and you may not get as dramatic of a transformation. On the other hand, teeth whitening at the dentist is more expensive but you’ll see results much faster and ... it is much safer.

At Cornerstone Dental, we can provide a more professional and thorough whitening treatment.


Please be careful, some of the teeth whitening home kits are known to cause allergic reactions. When you have an important event coming up, we recommend not to take the risk of whitening your teeth with an over the counter teeth whitening product. So, which one should you choose?


Ultimately, it depends on your budget and how quickly you want to see results. If you want the most affordable option that still gets the job done, then teeth whitening at home could be an option for you. If you want guaranteed results, a safe procedure, and a pleasant experience overall, make a teeth whitening Calgary NE appointment at Cornerstone Dental today.



How does teeth whitening (in-office) work?


You’ve probably heard about teeth whitening at the dentist office and wondered how it works. A teeth whitening dentist will use a bleaching agent on your teeth, which will then be activated by a special light. This process usually takes about an hour, and you’ll see results immediately.


Both in-home and in-office bleaching can cause increased tooth sensitivity in some people. This is actually a normal side effect and usually subsides a few days after the whitening treatments have been completed. Please note: Whitening procedures should be avoided if you are pregnant.


Teeth whitening is a bleaching procedure commonly used in North America and around the world to lighten discolouration of enamel and dentin caused by coffee, tea, cola, and red wine; stains and darkening of teeth can also result from smoking or aging. A 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening agent is activated during our in-office whitening procedure to accelerate the bleaching process. Oxygen enters the enamel and dentin after the hydrogen peroxide is broken down to bleach the stained substances, leaving the tooth structure unchanged.



How long does teeth whitening last?


The answer might be a little frustrating because the correct answer is: It depends. On average, the effects of teeth whitening can last up to 2-3 years or as little as 6 months. It truly varies from person to person. It depends on your oral health habits, eating and drinking habits, and even your teeth brushing habits.


Things that will stain your teeth quickly and make your whitening short-lived include:


  • Smoking

  • Dark liquids like red wine, coffee, and tea

  • Staining foods like beetroot and berries


Simply brushing your teeth twice a day and avoiding staining foods, (not cutting out entirely!) will help keep your teeth whitening noticeable for as long as possible. However, keep in mind that teeth will stain by nature, so discolouring is inevitable.



How much does teeth whitening cost?


You may be wondering how much teeth whitening costs. The answer varies depending on the method you choose and where you live. Generally, professional teeth whitening done by a dentist is more expensive than using an at home kit. At-home teeth whitening kits are more affordable and can range from $20 to $100.


Again, when you prefer reliable results without any damaging health effects, we recommend in-office teeth whitening. Our teeth whitening procedure is simply safer, healthier, and provides whiter teeth guaranteed!

Free In-office Teeth Whitening for New patients!


In-office whitening treatment can brighten your teeth by many shades of white. Using a special, light-activated whitening gel, this procedure is a quick and convenient way to achieve the smile you've always wanted. 

Tooth whitening is a procedure that can lighten the shade of your teeth and remove stain or discoloration caused by aging, certain medications, tobacco, coffee, and tea. Tooth whitening will not last forever, so the procedure will have to be repeated on a regular basis. 

Tooth whitening can be done at home or in the dental office. The dentist will often take a photo of your existing tooth color to monitor your progress and compare the new lighter shade of your teeth throughout treatment.

For in-home whitening, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth and then make custom mouthpieces (trays) to fit your teeth. The dentist will give you a supply of bleaching gel (usually containing hydrogen peroxide) that is applied to the tray and then you will be instructed to wear the tray for a certain amount of time. Care should be taken to use only the prescribed amount of whitening gel as excess material can contact your gums and cause irritation. 

In-Home Whitening


In-Office Whitening

In-office whitening often takes between 30 to 60 minutes to complete and can sometimes requires a few visits to the dentist's office to achieve the amount of whitening required.  The whitening agent (again, a gel containing hydrogen peroxide) is applied to your teeth.  A special UV light is then placed overtop of your teeth that are perfectly isolated with this gel. The UV light activates the gel as it slowly whitens your teeth! 


Both in-home and in-office bleaching can cause increased tooth sensitivity in some people. this is a normal side effect and usually subsides a few days after the whitening treatments have been completed. Whitening procedures should be avoided if you are pregnant.
