Can’t I use a home whitening solution?

Home-use teeth bleaching systems are available, either through the Beddington Dental clinic or at various retail outlets, throughout Calgary. The research done by the Canadian Dental Association does support the safety of bleaching gels when used appropriately. The results of whitening treatment may not be as convincing as you might expect. The effects of long-term tooth bleaching require more research and study since the effect is not permanent causing individuals to perform these treatments regularly. We recommend a consultation with one of our dentists in Calgary to learn more about the condition of your teeth and what solution may be right for you.

The two types of teeth whitening

A surface whitener uses a special abrasive to remove surface stains. We see the surface whiteners in toothpastes or chewing gum. This version is less likely to cause excessive tooth wear. The effectiveness of these products are limited to the tooth’s surface and should not be considered a substitute for professional cleaning by Beddington Dental.

The other option is a peroxide-based bleaching product that is capable of altering the colours of the tooth itself. If you are contemplating tooth-bleaching, please consult with our dental clinic in Calgary to determine if bleaching will have the desired effect. If you have bonded fillings, root canal treatments, or dental crowns it is even more important to consult with us first.
