Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. Having blemished, stained or yellowed teeth can degrade effect your self-confidence. So, if you have stained or yellowed teeth, you may not be making the best first impression. Perhaps the best way to improve the colouration of your teeth is with professional teeth whitening. Kamloops patients interested in teeth whitening can come to Aberdeen Dental Arts. Our dentists offer in-office teeth whitening, which is a safe and effective form of whitening your teeth. Supervised by a dental professional, using highly concentrated whitening agents, our teeth whitening procedure can help remove stains and provide you with an overall brighter smile.
Reasons to Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth can become stained naturally over time as we age, but certain foods, drinks and habits can help speed this process along. If you’re an avid coffee drinker or daily smoker, you may have noticed that your teeth have dark or yellow surface stains. If you experienced dental trauma or were treated with certain antibiotics during childhood, you may also have internally stained teeth.
No matter what the cause, the reasons to get teeth whitening in Kamloops are always similar. You may want to whiten your teeth:
Removing stains and discolouration gives you a brighter smile which can often lead to improved confidence and a more youthful look. Teeth whitening can also be a motivator to improve your oral hygiene, which can result in a healthier smile.
Our Whitening Procedure
Pre-existing oral issues such as cavities need to be treated before your teeth can be whitened to protect the inner part of your tooth. For our in-office whitening procedure, we’ll first record the shade of your teeth to monitor the progress of your treatment. We’ll also examine your teeth to determine any underlying cause for the staining. Before whitening takes place, we recommend you have your teeth cleaned to remove any tartar and plaque.
Our in-office whitening treatment involves the use of whitening gels applied directly to your teeth. A specialized light shined upon your teeth then activates the gel to speed up the whitening process. One of our dental staff will be in the room at all times to ensure the process goes smoothly and safely. Our whitening procedure will take approximately 90 minutes and during this time the gel is reapplied a number of times to reach an optimum whitening shade for your teeth.

There are over-the-counter teeth whitening options, but these are not nearly as effective as professional in-office whitening treatments. They have a weaker whitening agent because there is no supervision from a dentist while you use them.
