Professional Teeth Whitening

Looking for fast, affordable, and reliable teeth whitening in Ottawa? You can have a bright, dazzling smile when you visit Skyline Dental Associates for teeth whitening. Our dentist and team use Zoom whitening in our office to dissolve stains and lighten the colour of your teeth for a more beautiful smile. Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discolouration and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride. If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter, teeth whitening might be right for you. We can lighten staining & discolouration caused by various factors such as:

In-Office Dental Whitening Ottawa

This is one of the fastest methods of teeth whitening and requires one visit and shouldn’t take longer than an hour and a half. Chair-side bleaching is done very quickly and with immediate results. Here’s what you can expect when you book a teeth whitening procedure with Skyline Dental:

  • The initial consultation to go over your expectations and preferences. This is when our dentist will work with you to determine the correct type of treatment and treatment length to achieve the smile aesthetic you desire.
  • Minor cleaning and polishing of the teeth to remove plaque and prep them for the whitening solution.
  • Your dentist will use tools like a rubber shield or a protective gel to separate your gums from your teeth while the bleaching treatment is applied.
  • The professional tooth whitening gel or tooth-whitening solution will be applied for approximately 30 minutes to an hour. This is also when the activation light is used.
  • Once the teeth whitening procedure is completed, you might have to rinse your mouth and your dentist will go over some aftercare tips.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Looking for teeth whitening at home?  We will provide you with your own teeth whitening package. This will allow you to whiten your teeth right from the comfort of your own home. This bleaching method uses custom-fitted trays and a concentrated gel to lighten the shade of your teeth. Instructions on how to whiten, how much solution you should be putting in the trays, and exactly how long each session should last will be given to you during your visit.

Please note that drugstore at-home teeth whitening can be risky depending on your teeth. If you’re worried about damaging your teeth or increasing your tooth sensitivity to temperature, booking a consultation with your dentist to get professional advice is the best course of action. Especially if you have fillings, dental implants, or crowns, these at-home whitening treatments can react differently depending on the artificial tooth material. Our friendly team here at Skyline Dental is always happy to answer any questions and get you on the right track for a more beautiful smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

Whitening results can vary from patient to patient depending on the current colour of their teeth and their oral care practices. Our dentists will discuss which type of treatment and which duration of treatment will get you the best results. Generally speaking, most patients see their teeth become six to twelve shades whiter after a treatment in our clinic.

Our professional teeth whitening treatments that are performed at the clinic usually last between six months and one year. Practicing good oral hygiene and seeing us for regular cleanings once every six months can help to maintain whiter teeth for a longer period of time.

Professional teeth whitening can cause some tooth sensitivity in some patients. This sensitivity is temporary and should go away after three to five days. Brushing your teeth gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that is specially formulated for sensitive teeth can help to alleviate any tooth sensitivity you might experience.

No, it doesn’t. Teeth whitening solutions are only able to work on natural teeth, specifically the enamel. Crowns and veneers are usually made out of porcelain or another medical-grade ceramic material. The only way to remove stains and discolouration from these dental appliances are through regular dental cleanings.

We recommend getting a whitening treatment in our clinic once every six months to one year. More frequent whitening treatments are not recommended as frequent use of the whitening solution can lead to increased and longer lasting tooth sensitivity. If you want to whiten your teeth more frequently, it is better to use the provided take home kit to maintain your white smile in between treatments at the clinic.
