Teeth can lose their natural white colour for many reasons, including aging, tobacco use, and diet. Teeth whitening procedures offer a way to remove discolouration and restore your smile’s dazzling gleam of white teeth. At EDentist Canterbury, we want to help you feel confident in your smile. That’s why we offer in-office whitening and custom take-home whitening trays.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

The most common method of teeth whitening involves applying a small amount of cleaner to remove stains on discoloured teeth, returning them to their original white colour. Tooth bleaching agents consist of an oxidiser, typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, that breaks up stains and reduces their visibility. Tooth-bleaching agents penetrate the top layer of enamel and oxidize discoloured molecules.

Results from our teeth whitening procedure usually last between one to three years. You can extend the whitening effect by maintaining good oral health and avoiding foods that cause tooth decay.

What to Expect During a Teeth Whitening Procedure

Teeth whitening is a straightforward procedure and typically takes between one to two hours, depending on the extent of the work. Your dentist will first cover your gums around the treatment area to protect them from the bleaching agent. Next, we will apply the bleaching gel using a special applicator and use a laser LED light to activate the bleaching agent and speed the whitening process.

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure and requires relatively little aftercare. You may notice some tooth sensitivity for a few days, and you should avoid acidic foods and drinks like soda or coffee.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

We can perform teeth whitening in Canterbury right here at the EDentist clinic. We provide professional whitening services that will not damage the enamel and won’t cause oral complications. We can schedule a Zoom-In-Office whitening appointment or send you home with a custom whitening tray kit for DIY application at home. Periodic professional teeth whitening will not harm the structural integrity of your teeth. Improper use of products like over-the-counter whitening gel can weaken teeth and damage the enamel and dentin.

Below are just a handful of benefits of scheduling professional in-office or take-home teeth whitening with our EDentist team.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Zoom-In-Office teeth whitening procedures cost $499.
No, teeth whitening does not prevent cavities and will not restore tooth decay. Using whitening products on decaying teeth without supervision from a dentist can make the damage worse and lead to further complications. The only ways to prevent cavities is daily brushing and flossing and regular dental check-up and cleanings.
You can prevent tooth discolouration by maintaining good oral habits, including brushing after you eat, flossing, avoiding acidic foods and drinks, quitting smoking, and using dentist-approved whitening toothpaste.
Whitening procedures will not change the colour of crowns, veneers, or any other non-natural tooth substances, such as bonding agents, composites, or porcelain.
