Teeth Whitening Halifax, Nova Scotia

Have you tried using whitening toothpaste or strips but have been disappointed with the results?

Teeth stains are one of the biggest issues that patients struggle with. It seems no matter how hard we try, stains will develop and ruin your white smile. Stains are caused by consuming too many staining foods, such as coffee, tea, wine, and sodas. As we age, our teeth will also naturally yellow. This can make you feel less confident about your smile and reduce your self-confidence.

So what’s the best way to whiten a yellow smile? Depending on your case, there a number of ways to remove those unsightly tooth stains, such as whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, whitening strips, and mouth trays. Cutting back on coffee, tea, and smoking will help to keep your pearly whites looking their best. But depending on the severity of your stains, these methods may not be enough to whiten your smile to your desired results. Most over-the-counter whitening products are only capable of whitening up to one or two shades. For people with heavy tooth stains, they may need stronger forms of whitening treatments to bring the results that they want.

If you are looking for a dramatic boost to your smile, Dr. Daniel Tam offers professional teeth whitening treatments for patients in the Halifax area. Our teeth whitening treatments come in two forms:

In-office teeth whitening - a bleaching gel is placed on your teeth’s front surface and left on for approximately 15 minutes. A UV light is shined on the gel which causes a chemical reaction that quickly lifts off the surface stains. The dentist repeats this process until the desired shade of white is achieved for your smile.

At-home teeth whitening - we can create a home-made whitening kit which includes custom-made mouth trays and whitening gel. You’ll be required to fill the mouth trays with whitening gel and wear them for a short period of time every day. After a couple of weeks, you should see noticeable results for your smile.

Dr. Daniel Tam, cosmetic dentist, will examine your teeth to determine the best whitening option for you. Contact us in Halifax to set up an appointment.
