Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a minimally invasive dental treatment we offer at Harker Chan & Associates in Southeast (SE) Calgary, used to help lighten and brighten the colour of natural tooth enamel.
As we get older, the colour of our teeth can naturally begin to darken. This can be caused by a number of different factors, from dietary choices to taking certain medications. Teeth whitening helps to remove surface stains and lighten the colour of the natural tooth enamel, resulting in teeth that appear brighter and healthier.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
There are a number of options for patients who express interest in whitening their teeth. One of the most popular methods is a take home teeth whitening system that can help improve the brightness of your smile. Keep in mind, teeth whitening treatments only work on natural tooth enamel.
Replacement teeth and dental restorations should be completed following your selected whitening treatment to help match newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution for discoloured teeth. Patients may require touch ups every few years, and more often if you smoke, or drink coffee, tea, or wine.
