Your NW Calgary Choice for
Teeth Whitening!

We know your smile is important to you! Unfortunately, things you love like coffee, tea, cola, wine, and smoking, as well as overall bad hygiene, can contribute to stained and discoloured teeth. If you’re looking for a brighter, whiter smile, Toothville Family Dentistry can help! The number one requested cosmetic dentistry procedure, tooth whitening can help you achieve that “Hollywood Smile.” While many people buy the “drugstore brand” of whitener, our office whitening procedure produces better results and is only a fraction of the time.

Stain, Stain Go Away!

What is
Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening (bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile. Toothville Family Dentistry offers both in-office and take-home whitening services.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Boost self confidence
  • Younger looking appearance
  • Help make a positive first impression
  • Fix yellowing or stained teeth

What Causes Teeth Stains and Discolouration?

  • Tooth decay
  • Trauma to teeth
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Drinking coffee, tea, cola, and red wine
  • Smoking
  • Eating acidic foods
  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of the outer tooth layer

Is Teeth Whitening
for Everyone?

When it comes to teeth whitening, it’s always best to begin in our office. We can advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Those with yellowish teeth typically have better results than those with brownish or greyish hues. Also, whiteners have no effect on tooth-coloured composite fillings or teeth that are bonded, so whitening will only make these teeth stand out from the ones that do whiten.

Are Toothville Take Home Whitening Kits
Better than At-Home Whitening Products?

The professional whitening take-home kits that we offer at Toothville Family Dentistry generally takes about 15 minutes. After proper use, our clients have found results in as little as a few days. After ensuring that the gums and lips are protected, leaving only the teeth exposed, a bleaching agent made up of hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth and it does all the work!

Our office also dispenses take-home kits along with a custom-made mouthpiece. These 10% carbamide peroxide (the bleaching agent) gels are generally used for two weeks in order to obtain the desired results.

Over-the-counter bleaching kits also contain carbamide peroxide, but you won’t get the custom-fitted mouthpiece, and your saliva tends to weaken the effectiveness of the gel.

Are There Any Side Effects to
Tooth Whitening?

Some people experience tooth sensitivity after using bleaching agents. This is usually temporary and goes away after completion of the whitening process. Others notice irritation of their gums – especially when the bleaching tray is not custom made and the gums come in contact with the bleaching agent.

Side effects should always be brought to our attention so we can advise you on whether they are typical or not.

Can I go Overboard on
Tooth Whitening?

Believe it or not, bleaching can become addictive for some people who never believe that their teeth are white enough! This is dangerous because too much exposure to carbamide peroxide may cause the tooth enamel to appear translucent and increase teeth and gum sensitivity and irritation.

And you certainly don’t want your teeth to glow in the dark, do you? So be safe and know when to say when, and that’s usually when the colour of your teeth match the whites of your eyes!
