How professional teeth whitening gets results: A guide to safe custom whitening at the dentist’s office

An attractive smile is universally prized. It is also a timeless characteristic of a beautiful face, regardless of an individual’s age or other features. The colour of the teeth plays an important role in the smile’s aesthetics. When teeth become stained by years of coffee or tea consumption, or simply with wear and tear and the passage of time, it can “age” your smile and face. Yellow, stained, and otherwise discoloured teeth can make you look less healthy and less vibrant than you actually are or feel.

The power of professional teeth whitening

Gloucester Family Dentistry restores Gloucester, Ottawa, Ontario, area residents’ healthy, radiant, and stunning-looking smiles with professional teeth whitening. When planned, performed, and monitored by our dentists, Drs Fuad Tanha and Sami Kandalaft, our options can lighten your teeth by several shades. Whitening toothpaste and other OTC products rarely live up to their promises. Our professional whitening works when other store-bought options fail because we have access to powerful whitening gels. These whitening gels are formulated with a high concentration of ingredients proven to effectively and safely break down and remove stains.

As dental professionals, you can trust that our whitening treatments will be customized to your one-of-a-kind smile. So, you will end up with results that look natural and complement your face. The experience of getting these results will also be comfortable. We can address any concerns that you may have about tooth sensitivity and discomfort. Due to our customization, the whitening trays or devices used for some treatment plans fit your mouth perfectly. They are comfortable, and the whitening gels “stay put.” They do not rub up against the insides of the mouth like loose, universal-fit OTC trays.

More on your options

Our practice offers both in-office, chairside, or “power” whitening and home whitening with the trays mentioned above. In just one office appointment, you can remove years of cumulative stains. Our dentists apply a concentrated whitening gel to the teeth. They isolate the teeth and protect the surrounding gums and tissues for precise and comfortable treatment. You see instant and often dramatic results. 

With take-home custom whitening trays, you can achieve dramatic results gradually. Simply apply the gels to the trays as directed. Then, slip the gel-filled trays into your mouth and over your teeth. When worn as advised, you will notice increasingly whiter teeth with each passing day of treatment.
