What are my options for whitening my teeth?

According to Canadian Dental Association, there are two main categories for teeth whitening products – surface whiteners and bleaches. Surface whiteners, such as teeth whitening toothpastes or chewing gums, are less likely to cause tooth wear, but the effectiveness of these products is limited to surface stains. In contrast, bleaches are capable of altering the colours of the tooth itself, but bleaching should be done professionally under a dentist’s care for safe and effective results as the responsiveness to a bleaching treatment will depend on nature of the stains and the dental treatments you have received before such as fillings, root canals, crowns and so on.

At Alta Dental Studio, we use Pola whitening products because we have found them to produce the brightest, most consistent results. Pola whitening products contains the fastest bleach available to safely whiten teeth at a neutral pH to protect your tooth and gums.

We are happy to announce we are resuming most dental services and back to regular office hours as of Thursday, May 21, 2020 at our brand-new office located at 2212 Kingsway, Vancouver.
