Affordable, Effective Teeth Whitening in Lethbridge

What do you see when you look in the mirror? If your smile has lost its brilliance because of food stains or natural yellowing, perhaps it's finally time to seek teeth whitening in Lethbridge. You may not realize how discoloured your teeth are until you take action! And once you see how much brighter your teeth can be, you’ll be glad that you did.

At Southridge Dental, our general dentists understand that your smile either showcases or undermines your confidence. If you are embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, there's no need to wait. Schedule teeth whitening at our Lethbridge office, and then ask us about at-home whitening options for added convenience.


How Teeth Become Stained

The teeth whitening process is an excellent option that can improve the colour of your teeth. You may be embarrassed by the dark or yellow colour of your teeth, but there’s no reason to be. As we age, teeth tend to naturally change colour; however, there are many factors that can affect the whiteness of our teeth. Staining, aging and chemical damage can all take effect, but some of the most common causes of tooth discolouration are:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Medications
  • Smoking
  • Dark sodas
  • Red Wine

Foods such as berries and pasta sauce can also affect the colour of our teeth, but the above list contains the most common culprits. If you’re considering getting teeth whitening in Lethbridge, we recommend getting a professional teeth cleaning prior to your appointment to ensure the best results.



What to Expect

If you have never received whitening treatments before, you may have questions about the process. Our staff members are happy to listen to your concerns and answer all your questions.


For instance, many patients don't realize that whitening treatments only work on natural teeth. If you have veneers, bonding, crowns, fillings, or other dental work, bleaching gel will not harm these surfaces, but it will not whiten them further, either. Your dentist can offer more advice about your particular case.


If you and your dentist decide that whitening is appropriate for you, you can expect:

  1. Targeted bleaching gel – Your dentist will know the right concentration to use, particularly if you have sensitive teeth. Your dentist will also choose a whitener that matches your particular stains.
  2. Customized trays – For a proper result, your dentist will fit your bleaching tray precisely to your teeth. Unlike the generalized fit of an over-the-counter treatment, your tray will fit closely to allow more focused treatment.
  3. Occasional sensitivity – Dentists take care to avoid the gum line when placing whitening gel during in-office treatments, which reduces potential for tooth and gum sensitivity. However, you may experience some tooth sensitivity after treatment. If needed, your dentist can adjust treatment length or vary appointments when sensitivity lingers.


Call for a Teeth Whitening Appointment in Lethbridge

Southridge Dental wants you to feel satisfied with your tooth colour. That’s why we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. Both processes will whiten your teeth multiple shades, but they each have other benefits. In-office whitening tends to be more thorough, but at-home options are more convenient for many people. Depending on what your needs are, you can choose between at-home and in-office teeth whitening in Lethbridge, or you can choose a combination of the two. Visit us in our new office today, or call 403-394-2010 to make an appointment for teeth whitening in Lethbridge. Then, get ready to smile!
