What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a way to remove stains and lighten the colour of your teeth. 

As you age, your teeth become more vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. Particles are attracted to your tooth's enamel naturally and products like tobacco, tea, coffee and berries have a reputation for staining teeth.

At Wellspring Dental, we offer professional take-home whitening kits designed to reverse the effects of aging and staining on your teeth, lightening their colour in the process.

How Teeth Whitening Works

The teeth whitening process uses hydrogen peroxide-based bleaching agents. These agents penetrate the enamel and break down stains, resulting in a brighter smile.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

At our two Wellspring Dental dental clinics, we offer take-home whitening options so that you can whiten your teeth in the comfort and convenience of your home.

Professional take-home teeth whitening involves custom trays made by a dentist that are filled with a whitening gel and worn at home for a specified amount of time each day. The custom trays ensure that the whitening gel is evenly distributed and in contact with all surfaces of your teeth, resulting in a more uniform and consistent whitening effect.

This teeth whitening method is safe and effective – you'll be enjoying a brighter smile in a matter of weeks!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at our two Wellspring Dental clinics. 

  • How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

    Teeth whitening isn't a permanent solution to whiten your smile.

    If you continue to expose your teeth to substances which cause staining, you will likely start to see the newfound whiteness of your teeth begin to fade within a few months.

    If you avoid these foods and drinks after your teeth whitening treatment, you may just need a touch-up after a year or so. 

  • Does teeth whitening make teeth more sensitive?

    Sensitivity can be a short-term side effect of teeth whitening.

    To reduce your discomfort, we suggest that you use anti-sensitivity toothpaste about two weeks before your teeth whitening treatment is set to begin and for about two weeks following the end of your treatment.

  • Do teeth whitening products work on all stains?

    Yellow and brown-coloured stains respond the best to teeth whitening treatments.

    Grey, blue and purple-coloured stains tend not to respond to whitening. For teeth with these types of stains, patients may be better candidates for other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers. 

  • Does teeth whitening work on dental restorations?

    No, it does not. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth. This treatment does not work on existing dental restorations like veneers or crowns.

    If veneers or crowns are part of your treatment plan, teeth whitening should take place before you receive your dental restorations. 

  • Will teeth whitening damage my tooth enamel?

    If used as directed by the dentist, it is unlikely that teeth whitening will damage your dental enamel.

    Always consult with your dentist to ensure that you are using any teeth whitening products safely.

  • Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening?

    Dental insurance does not usually cover the cost of teeth whitening because it is a purely cosmetic procedure with no health benefits for your teeth.
