The traditional myth has been that lasers are worth the cost if you want the speed. But the speed isn’t all that speedy. Knowing exactly how much laser teeth whitening costs is no easy task. That’s because it is purportedly the fastest teeth whitening procedure on the market, but not even that tells the full story. That initial laser session doesn’t take into account two other costs: the cost of time and maintenance. To know about the cost based on your conditions, please call us at 604-773-6401.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment done to improve the appearance of teeth. Teeth are whitened to remove the effects of coffee, cigarettes, and other substances that permanently stain or discolor teeth. Medications such as antibiotics like tetracycline may discolor teeth.
Of course. Tooth discoloration can be treated with professional cleanings, bleaching products, and cosmetic services such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding.
Teeth whitening isn’t permanent. It can last from a few months to up to 3 years – it varies from person to person. The whitening effect won’t last as long if you smoke or drink pigmented substances such as red wine, tea, or coffee, which can all stain your teeth.
Teeth whitening doesn’t work on dentures, crowns, fillings, or veneers.
No matter what treatment you use, there’s a chance your gums will be sensitive to the chemicals used in teeth whitening, particularly if you already have sensitive teeth.
It depends on each individual and the extent of discoloration, generally from 5-14 shades lighter can be achieved. The more stained your teeth are, the more dramatic the results will be.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is non-dental. The products we use are gentler than and just as effective as those used by the dentist.
You may feel a slight tingling, bubbling, or effervescence against your teeth for the first few minutes during your treatment. This is normal and is the sign that the gel is producing the oxygen that does the work of bleaching. It is very uncommon for even sensitive teeth to experience any discomfort from this process.
Yes, It is. The research has shown that Cosmetic Teeth Whitening is safe. Many dentists and dental researchers consider this process to be the safest dental or cosmetic procedure available. We recommend that any women that are pregnant or breastfeeding do not have this procedure done.
It depends greatly on your lifestyle and habits, but in general, your teeth will remain white for one to two years. If you drink a lot of coffee, tea, dark soda, or red wine, or especially if you smoke, the results will not last as long, and you may have to repeat the process more often.
These areas on your teeth are decalcified, which is very common. The areas will respond and whiten more rapidly. However, the rest of the tooth will eventually catch up and become more uniform as you continue to treat.
