What Is Tooth Whitening?

Tooth whitening involves the placement of a whitening solution on the teeth to eliminate discoloration. The solution is held in place by a thin custom-made, see-through tray that fits over the teeth.  Whitening is a safe, effective and relatively easy means of producing a whiter smile.

Two effective whitening methods are available: Power Bleaching or Zoom, done in the chair at our office, and at-home-bleaching, which provides for home use (not to be confused with over-the-counter bleaching products available in your local drug store).  Depending on your needs, your dentist will recommend the best course of treatment for you.

Sensitive teeth, or those that are chipped, eroded or weakened by cavities, should be repaired or protected before they are whitenened.

For more information regarding tooth whitening, or to book a consultation with a Winnipeg dentist that is an expert in teeth whitening, contact our Winnipeg Dental Clinic.
