What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that can help restore your smile to a pearly white appearance and boost your confidence! It is a very safe and effective procedure under the supervision of our professional cosmetic dental team at Humewood Dental.

For many people, stained teeth can make smiles less visually appealing and reduce self-confidence. Your teeth may become stained, dull, or discoloured due to factors such as natural aging, exposure to foods and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine, smoking tobacco, illnesses, or certain medications.

Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening Procedures

Professional teeth whitening formula at our Humewood Dental office contains hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down into water and oxygen molecules when exposed to the air and water in your mouth. The oxygen molecules will attach to stain particles on your teeth to break them down. This formula provides a higher percentage of hydrogen peroxide than OTC products to give you a brighter smile. While over-the-counter (OTC) products such as whitening toothpaste, dental strips or whitening kits may seem like more affordable options, they are most likely weaker and therefore require more treatments to achieve the same results. This can cause your teeth to become more sensitive and uncomfortable.
