Professional Teeth Whitening
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, discoloration 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:
The Natural Aging Process
Poor Dental Hygiene Habits
Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee, and soda
Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
In Office Dental Whitening
This is one of the fastest methods of teeth whitening and requires one visit. Chair-side bleaching is done very quickly and with immediate results. A protective gel or rubber shield is then used to protect your gums while the bleaching treatment is applied to your teeth. You will be provided with take-home trays and bleach.
Our dentist will work with you to determine the right type of treatment and treatment length to achieve the smile aesthetic you desire.

What Skyline Dental Patients
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.
