Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C), Health Canada and the Canadian Centre For Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).
We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
To ensure the health and well-being of our patients and team members, we have installed 2 different types of air purifiers at our dental office. Both of these are manufactured by the Canadian company, Surgically Clean Air.
Both of these filters perform their duties without being loud, (an industry-leading low level of about 55DB) or creating a “breeze” that can be uncomfortable for our patients.
Some additional changes you may also see when it is time for your next appointment. For example:
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (403) 382‑2273.

Teeth Whitening in Lethbridge, Alberta
Do you feel conscious about the color of your teeth? Our dental office at Lethbridge offers teeth whitening services to lighten the shade of the teeth.
Our teeth aren’t naturally as white as you often see from celebrities or advertisements. They also discolor over time due to aging and several other factors.
We need to identify what’s causing the discoloration to determine the best way to address it. At Cool Dental, we invite you for a comprehensive exam before recommending a tooth whitening option. We also suggest getting your teeth cleaned first so you can enjoy the best whitening results.
We offer in-home teeth whitening options for patients. This involves the use of a tray that’s customized to fit your mouth.
We'll apply the whitening gel to the tray, and you must wear the tray as directed by Dr. Lachman. You may need to put it on for a few hours a day or during your sleep. Expect to see the final results within a week or two.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening products aren't as effective as dentist administered options. This is because the whitening agent used at the dental office is stronger.
Your teeth will be at their brightest after completing your teeth whitening treatment. The front teeth are usually the whitest, followed by your molars, and then your canines.
The results aren’t permanent and your teeth can still discolor. Drinking coffee, smoking, and consuming teeth-staining food can cause the whitening agent to fade over time.
To keep the shade of your teeth bright, we recommend going for re-treatments every six months. Dr. Lachman will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your aesthetic goals.
The cost of teeth whitening treatments depends on the method used, the situation of your teeth, and the number of treatments you require. Teeth whitening isn't usually covered by dental plans as it's considered a cosmetic procedure. Our team can coordinate with your insurance provider to see if they’ll cover the cost of your treatment.
Teeth whitening works for most people. But there are also cases when it’s not the best option. For instance, teeth that have had work done will not respond well to whitening procedures. We’ll be able to find out the answer during your consultation.
