Teeth Whitening in Calgary, Alberta

If you want cosmetic dentists in Calgary, Richmond Dental offers a diverse range of options including teeth whitening. At our dental clinic, we offer a free consultation to see if you’re a qualified candidate for teeth whitening. If you’re not, our cosmetic dentists can recommend other solutions like porcelain veneers, bonded fillings, or dental crowns to get your smile the bright white you desire.

Although teeth are not naturally meant to be completely white, the natural colour being within a range of light greyish-yellow shades, many Albertans want a brighter smile. As one ages, teeth naturally darken and can also be affected by stains from the consumption of certain foods and drinks.

While your best solution to keeping your smile white is with regular home maintenance including brushing and flossing, many people opt to use surface whitenenvers. Surface whiteneners include teeth whitening toothpaste or gum that mildly abrases the surface of the tooth to give a temporary whiter look. These surface products can be used but are not a substitute for professional cleaning.

At Richmond Dental, we offer peroxide-based bleaching service that is capable of altering the colour of the tooth itself. An initial consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists is important, especially if you have fillings, root canals, crowns or extremely dark stains. There are a number of different bleaching techniques to whiten your teeth. To begin, vital bleaching is done on living teeth while non-vital bleaching is done on a “dead” tooth due to a root canal. Then, there are three methods used to bleach your teeth depending on the number of teeth being bleached and how badly they may be stained.

  • Our dentists, apply the bleach, and use heat and light to start the bleaching action

  • You can wear a custom-made mouthguard filled with a special bleach

  • You can brush your teeth with a special bleach that has been premixed with toothpaste

Bleaching should be done under the care of a dentist at our Richmond clinic. Contact us at 403-246-2131 to arrange your free consultation and see how Richmond Dental can get your teeth shining bright!
