Teeth Whitening Halifax & Dentist in Halifax, NS

You may have tried whitening toothpaste or strips, but have been disappointed in the results.

Teeth stains are a large concern that patients struggle with. It seems that no matter how hard we try, stains will continue to develop and alter the colouration of your teeth. Stains are typically caused by consuming too many staining foods such as coffee, tea, wine, and sodas. Additionally, our teeth will naturally yellow as we age.

There are ways to change the colouration of your teeth and restore the natural aesthetic of your mouth. Depending on your case, there are a number of ways to reduce the visibility of tooth stains, such as whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, whitening strips, and mouth trays. You can also help slow the progression of stains by cutting back on coffee, tea, or smoking. However, depending on the severity of your stains, these methods may not be enough to alter the colouration of your smile to your desired results. Most over-the-counter whitening products are only capable of making minor alterations. For people with heavy tooth stains, you may need stronger forms of whitening treatments to give you optimal results.

If you are looking to alter the aesthetic of your mouth, Dr. Daniel Tam offers professional teeth whitening in Halifax. Our teeth whitening treatments come in two forms:

In-office teeth whitening:
A bleaching gel is placed on your teeth’s front surface and is left on for approximately 15 minutes. A UV light is shone upon the gel which causes a chemical reaction that treats the surface stains. The Halifax dentist repeats this process until they achieve the desired shade.

At-home teeth whitening:
We can create a whitening kit in our office which includes custom mouth trays and whitening gels. In this process, you will be required to fill the mouth trays with whitening gel and wear them for a short period of time every day. You should notice results after a couple weeks.

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