Pearly whites and glistening teeth have always been associated with good health and beauty.

In addition, habits such as smoking and a high sugar diet can further put a dent in the appearance of our teeth. We at Tecumseh Family Dental believe nothing should come between you and your charming smile. Therefore, we provide you with advanced professional teeth whitening solutions to ensure the happiness you feel inside can be confidently reflected outside.

What is Dentist Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening comes under the umbrella term of aesthetic dental treatments and aims to remove stains and discolourations present on the surface of the teeth. Simultaneously, it lightens up your teeth to give you a whiter and more glowing smile.

Teeth Whitening Treatment Options:

In-Office Teeth Whitening

As the name suggests, in-office teeth whitening is one of the most common aesthetic treatments requested to improve & better a smile.  Professional teeth whitening is performed by our team in our Tecumseh dental clinic and is not to be taken home. After a complete oral health examination, one of our general dentists will ask you some questions to understand your cosmetic dental health concerns. Keeping your desired goal in mind, they will create a customized teeth whitening plan for you.

The treatment begins with a complete dental cleaning to ensure your mouth is healthy and debris-free. This also provides better treatment outcomes. Following this, your gums and oral soft tissues will be covered with a rubber dam to begin your Teeth whitening treatment.

The teeth whitening gel is applied to all the surfaces of the teeth and is allowed to sit for a duration of 15 minutes. UV light is used to help the gel penetrate the tooth structure better. The light is targeted toward the gel and promotes faster teeth whitening results, ensuring up to 8 times lighter teeth in just a single session.

Why Choose The In-Office Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is highly recommended because you get the opportunity to get your teeth cleaned before the whitening process. A dental cleaning removes any built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth, which can help improve the effectiveness of the dental teeth whitening treatment.
Plaque and tartar can prevent the whitening agents from reaching the surface of your teeth, resulting in uneven whitening, and an ineffective treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Hydrogen peroxide and its close relative carbamide peroxide are the main active ingredient in teeth whitening gel. When applied to the teeth, these active agents dissolve external discolouration and simultaneously have a bleaching action to lighten your teeth. UV light further enhances the efficacy of these active agents, promoting faster and more efficient results.

    Teeth whitening is a safe cosmetic dental procedure when performed by a certified dentist. However, you may experience some teeth sensitivity following teeth whitening. This is temporary and will go away with time. Medicated anti-sensitivity toothpaste is prescribed to help you with the symptoms of sensitive teeth.

    However, if overdone or improperly done, teeth whitening may damage the tooth’s enamel and make it prone to decay and chipping. If the whitening gel comes in contact with the soft tissues, it may also cause chemical burns. These risks are incredibly high with take-home kits. Therefore, it is essential you follow all the instructions and perform teeth whitening under the supervision of a board-certified dentist.
