You can do it at home or in our dental center in Spadina, whatever lies in your comfort. Let us take you through a more detailed journey to know more about teeth whitening, the very quick and highly demanded dental treatment. Whiter teeth are a staple in the health and beauty industry. Never would you see a model or celebrity with yellow or stained teeth. Let’s face it, whiter teeth bring confidence. There are several ways for the average person to obtain a whiter and brighter smile, here are the most popular. Teeth Whitening is the most popular form of dentistry nowadays because it is easily safe to do, almost always effective and inexpensive in comparison to other procedures.
Why Teeth whitening?
Many habits we have lead to teeth darkening like drinking coffee/tea, smoking or not being hygienic. We understand that it’s hard to quit these habits, which is why choosing our teeth whitening service at Spadina Dental, would provide you with a long lasting eye-catching smile. A person’s smile says a lot about them which is why we think it’s important to keep it on point.
Carbamide peroxide (hydrogen peroxide) is the main ingredients mixed into the solution according to your gum sensitivity and comfort. They act as bleaching agents in the help of other chemicals that will whiten your teeth safely without damaging the tooth enamel.
Whitening At Dentist Office
We will start out at the priciest end of the spectrum with professional whitening in the dental office. Most dentists use a Carbamide Peroxide in the form of a gel and provide customized dental trays moulded by plaster casts of your teeth. These trays reduce the risk of whitening lines due to the fact they are made just for you. In contrast, most at-home-kits provide the same Carbamide Peroxide, just not the form-fitting tray. Dentists charge up to $600 for this treatment, mainly to cover time and office costs.
Whitening Teeth Procedure
At the Spadina Center in Toronto, we offer the take-it-home easy procedure where all you have to do is come in once. The first thing we do is take the shape of your teeth in order to provide you with moulds that fit exactly onto your teeth without causing any pain or discomfort. Next, we provide you with a bleaching solution to take home and one of our team members will give you detailed instructions on how to use the bleach with the moulds.

At Home Whitening Gels
For a much cheaper price, we are able to obtain whiter teeth in the comfort of our own home by using at-home-kits. Most of these kits contain the same strength Carbamide Peroxide formula as your dentist or possibly a more powerful formula. Another benefit of at home whitening is the price. You’re not paying a dentist or his employees, so you will find yourself paying hundreds less than you would at a dental office. Some quality kits can go as low as $39! The only real downside of an at-home kit is the quality of the dental tray as it’s typically a boil and bite mouthpiece. You may find these a little less comfortable than their dentistry counterpart.
The results from whitening strips are usually less than desired. Major brands and off-brands have been known to disappoint, showing a mild effect over the course of a month. The problem is that most pharmaceutical backed companies are looking for a way to make a reoccurring profit from its consumers. Thus keeping a weaker product on the shelves keep you coming back until desired results are acquired. In some cases, this could be months or years.
Whitening toothpaste seems to have little or no effectiveness. I myself recently tested a popular toothpaste brand, known for it’s supposed whitening power. I realized that at most, one line of past could only contain a mild active ingredient and you would have to brush your teeth for an hour for any noticeable result over a period of a month. Whitening toothpaste seems to be a marketing ploy that sells more from us being so eager for improvement.
