At Sparkle Dental Care, we want you to enjoy a whiter and brighter smile, which is why we offer professional teeth whitening in Bayside.

Often patients have healthy smiles, but they are not happy with the appearance of their teeth. They are looking for ways to get rid of yellow tooth stains or lighten their enamel to a more youthful shade.

It all starts with a tooth whitening consultation in our dental clinic. Your dentist will determine on exam whether this cosmetic dentistry option is safe for your smile. Considerations may include oral health conditions like periodontal disease or restorations.

Our Teeth Whitening Process in Bayside

We offer both in-chair and take-home teeth whitening for your convenience. Our in-chair whitening typically takes about 90 minutes to complete. We may reapply the whitening gel several times during these 90 minutes until teeth reach the optimal shade. This choice is ideal for patients looking for fast results before a life event such as a wedding or fast-approaching job interview.

For at-home teeth whitening, your dentist takes an impression of your teeth. We use the resulting model to create a custom whitening tray that fit the unique contours of your smile. You take this tray home, along with our whitening gel, and brighten your teeth on your own time. A member of our team provides the instructions.

Maintaining Your White Smile

Teeth discolour for a variety of reasons including:

  • Teas and coffees
  • Tobacco use
  • Red sauces
  • Certain medications
  • Age

To maintain a whiter smile after professional teeth whitening in Bayside, you might consider cutting back on some of the above indulgences.

You can also periodically touch-up your smile at home with your custom whitening tray and our prescription strength gel.
