Is teeth whitening safe?

Have you felt like your smile may not be as bright as you'd like it to be? Do your teeth appear more yellow than they once were? The good news for those seeking a brighter smile through teeth whitening in Vancouver is that the procedure is indeed safe for your tooth enamel.

The active ingredients in high strength bleaching gels, typically either carbamide or hydrogen peroxide, penetrate tooth enamel to reach discoloured molecules. These ingredients then break down the bonds holding those molecules together, so teeth appear whiter again. 

Today's teeth whitening gels also contain ingredients to help reduce tooth sensitivity, which can sometimes be a side effect of bleaching your teeth. Your Vancouver dentists also provide custom teeth whitening options that help protect your gums and soft tissues from the irritation of bleaching gel. Custom teeth whitening trays leave no room for bleaching gel to escape and harm your gums.

If you are interested in teeth bleaching in Vancouver, we encourage you to contact Alta Dental Studio today at (604) 876-5032 to learn more about your options. We offer both in-office treatments and take-home teeth whitening kits that are extremely effective and will have you smiling your brightest smile in no time.
