Teeth Whitening Collingwood
RESTORE YOUR CONFIDENCE BACK
When you have stained or discoloured teeth, it can make you feel self-conscious and significantly affect your quality of life. You may no longer want to beam a smile, which could also take a hit on your self-confidence. If you feel conscious about your smile and less confident, then social and professional situations can become challenging.
For example, you may come off as unhappy or rude with the people you meet because you deliberately try to hide your teeth. You may find it difficult to go to job interviews or professional meetings because you are concerned about how your teeth look like and hiding them can give an impression that you are distant. Thankfully, you don’t have to suffer like this anymore. Teeth whitening treatment can help you get over these awkward encounters.
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive way to achieve a dazzling smile that can restore your confidence.
Your teeth discolour over time for many reasons, including drinking coffee, tea, red wine, smoking, ageing, or eating coloured foods. Your teeth cleaned by your dentist will remove some of these stains but won’t return your teeth to their original white colour. That’s why teeth whitening treatments are done to whiten your stained and discoloured teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening at Stanley Street Dental
Here at Stanley St. Dental, we offer two forms of professional teeth whitening: take-home whitening and in-chair teeth whitening.
Take-home teeth whitening
We offer teeth whitening kit so you can whiten your teeth in the comforts of your own home. Our take-home whitening involves having custom-made trays fitted to your mouth and then applying whitening gel to the trays at home. We will give you instructions on how you can use these kits at home, so you can have a brighter, whiter smile.
In-chair teeth whitening
In-chair whitening involves the dentist directly applying a special whitening gel to your teeth with the aid of a laser. This process can take up to 1 hour, and we recommend getting your teeth cleaned before treatment to achieve the best results. In-chair whitening can be paired with a take-home kit to provide longer-lasting results.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is generally safe, but you may feel some side effects during and after the treatment, such as:
- Sensitivity: When doing teeth whitening, your teeth may become sensitive during or following the treatment. You may feel this discomfort on your first or second treatment, and it will diminish with time. Your teeth whitening dentist may recommend treating sensitivity with products that contain sodium fluoride or potassium nitrate.
- Irritation of gums: Whitening gels can also irritate your gums. This can happen when the whitening products get in contact with your gums. This side effect is just temporary and should go away after your treatments.

How long does teeth whitening last?
Both in-chair teeth whitening and teeth whitening at home is not permanent. The results can last for a few months to up to 3 years, and it varies from person to person. If you smoke, drink tea, coffee, or red wine, the results may last shorter because they can all stain your teeth.
How much does teeth whitening cost?
We offer in-chair teeth whitening as well as at-home teeth whitening kits to maintain your healthy white smile. Pricing for treatments vary, book a consultation with our dentists today to find out more.
How often can you get your teeth whitened?
Professional in-chair teeth whitening is recommended once a year, while take-home whitening touch-ups can be done in-between treatments. Take note that every patient is on a slightly different whitening schedule, depending on the natural shade of their enamel and their dental health.
How many teeth whitening sessions do you need?
You will only need one professional teeth whitening session to achieve your desired results, especially if you are doing the in-chair treatment. For take-home teeth whitening, your dentist will discuss with you how many sessions you might need.
