Teeth Whitening in Lethbridge, Alberta

Causes of Teeth Discoloration

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.

Teeth Whitening Services at Lethbridge

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.

How White Can My Teeth Get?

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.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

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.

Is Teeth Whitening for Me?

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.
