What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Our teeth naturally darken as we age due to discolouration and staining, both inside and on the surface of the tooth. Many factors can cause this discolouration of your teeth, including:

  • Smoking
  • Accidents
  • Dental hygiene upkeep
  • Foods and beverages like coffee and red wine

One safe, effective way to help whiten and brighten your smile is using professional teeth whitening methods. This simple, non-invasive process can change the colour of a natural tooth by targeting and eliminating stains.

The team at Pure Dental can help you determine if whitening your teeth is right for you.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

One of the first things people are likely to notice about you is your smile. Having a brighter smile can help boost your confidence and self-esteem. 

In addition, taking care of your oral health can have a positive effect on your overall health and well-being.

How Teeth Whitening Works

Teeth whitening treatments contain peroxide-based gel that breaks down stain molecules, which can lead to a whiter, brighter smile. This peroxide gel is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and safe to use. 

Different people prefer different shades of white. Your dental professional can help you decide which shade is right for your teeth.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

At our office in Kamloops, we offer a teeth whitening option that can whiten your teeth safely. First, the dentist will apply a barrier around your teeth and gums to protect them before putting a thin layer of gel on each tooth. On successful completion of your treatment, your teeth will appear visibly whiter. 

Personalized Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Our at-home whitening process can also help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile. If you choose our take-home whitening option, impressions of your mouth will be made so custom whitening trays can be created.

Apply the whitening gel to these trays and wear them according to the directions for use. At the end of the treatment period, you may notice your teeth appear visibly whiter. 

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Here are some of of our patients' most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at  Pure Dental

Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Pure Dental

  • How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

    Whitening is temporary. Beverages such as wine and coffee, and certain foods including those that contain tumeric, can stain teeth. Depending on diet and lifestyle choices (whether you are a smoker), whitening may last longer for some people than for others. If you keep up with a health oral hygiene routine, you might just desire a touch-up after a year or so. 

  • Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening?

    Teeth whitening costs are not typically covered by dental insurance.

  • Does teeth whitening make teeth more sensitive?

    One short-term side effect of teeth whitening may be sensitivity. For most patients, this fades away within a few days following a whitening session. To minimize any discomfort, we recommend that you use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste before treatment, and for at least two weeks following your treatment.

  • Do teeth whitening products work on all stains?

    Typically, brown, and yellow-coloured stains respond best to teeth whitening treatments. Some stains tend not to respond to whitening treatments at all. If having a whiter smile is important to you but your teeth have non-responsive stains, your dentist may recommend other cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns or veneers that may be a better fit for you.

  • Does teeth whitening work on dental restorations?

    Unfortunately not. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will not work on existing dental restorations such as dental crowns or veneers. If crowns or veneers are part of your treatment plan, teeth whitening should take place before you receive your dental restorations.

  • Will teeth whitening damage my tooth enamel?

    When used under the supervision of a qualified dentist, teeth whitening is very unlikely to damage your dental enamel. Always consult with your dentist to ensure you are using any teeth whitening products safely. If you experience any pain, sensitivity, or discomfort anywhere in your mouth, let your dentist know right away. Even if it’s not related to whitening, they will be able to help.
